Title: It's Hotttt!
Post by: Dano on July 10, 2012, 08:22 AM
Our second day of 100 degrees is forecast today, with 3 more to come.  :'(

I imagine my brothers down in Vegas are 110+.
You guys OK down there?

I'm roasting!!

Chicagoland had three 100+ days in a row last week and we were 95+ for 8 days. Very unusual for here. No need to convince us. Were in the middle of a drought too. The farmers are getting real scared after a couple years of bumper crops and profits.

I heard today's high was expected to be 116 and the high heat warning started at 10 am till 10 pm  :-[

The low was 90 last night, felt a wave of heat when I open the back door to let the cats out at 6:30 this morning  ???

Maybe speedo's will be the dress code for Vegas Friday night fly  :D :D :D

Rather the heat of summer than the snow and cold of winter.

At least we don't have to shovel the heat off our driveways.  :)

Can I borrow your driveway this winter so I won't have to shovel it? Priority mail plus insurance please.

On the flip side, you can bundle up in winter.

You can only take off so much before the neighbors call the police.

That said, I really like Spring/Fall the best.

The thing I love about the area I'm in now is that it cools off wonderfully in the evenings.  It's just amazing considering that it was reportedly 107 today in San Ramon.

It topped out at 111 yesterday and is predicted to get hotter the next few days.  :(

Yeah, I'm glad I'm not fighting any of the fires around here. I can't imagine full fire gear with an air temp of 110* in the shade and being in the sun/smoke next to a flaming mountainside. My heart goes out to those people.

Sorry to hear it guys. We finally got some relief in the Great Lakes in this here Greenland Block as TWC calls it. Been nice and cool the last few days. Still need rain though. MI has gotten plenty of rain. I'm here on work and can't get to the beach to fly because of it.
