Did you mean to say 68-degrees?

What I'd do for 68 right now.......

07-26-2006, 06:23 PM
is that 68C? I'd have to agree that's pretty darn hot /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/eek.gif

If its 68F, I'll trade weather with ya for a few days /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

that's "Down to 78", right? Around here its hanging in the high 90's during the day & maybe the 80's at night!

It was hot and Muggy today. the max temp was around 92, and the max humidity was 80%. Thankfully not at the same time. It's 80 right now at 60% humidity. (at 9:15 pm) so it's cooling down. I'm probably gonna crack a cold beer,head out back, fire up the oil lantern and play some guitar.

We were up in northern Wisconsin last week.. fishing, water sports, golf, hiking, etc. While it was near and above 100 degrees in the KC area, in northern Wis, it peaked out in the lower 80's with 50's at night and a nice northwest breeze. Hated to come back to hot and humid again!

07-28-2006, 08:19 AM
Thank God for the rain the last two days - we've been hitting triple digits for the lat two weeks until it moved in!

07-29-2006, 11:28 PM
Last week it measured 119-degrees two miles from my house. Now all of you stop complaining.

Thankfully it has cooled to a reasonable 85-90 this week.

Make me /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Going to be a 100 plus tomorrow with Midwest humidity its going to suck.

Tis raining nicely here, first time in awile. We'll take all we can get.

07-30-2006, 12:54 PM
Weeeeeee summer is finaly here. Glasses finaly fogged up when I walked outside.

07-30-2006, 01:03 PM
Were supposed to have near record heat again today. Coupled with lightning heavy thunderstorms. Just what we need to start some more grass fires. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

I heard a weatherperson on one of the Denver channels state that 'Monsoons' were expected for Monday and Tuesday. In Colorado any rain over a half hour could qualify as a 'monsoon'. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

We're swimming in record rain and high heat, it's like a jungle around here lately!

07-30-2006, 09:28 PM
finally in the low seventies here after a very wicked looking storm (looked like something in a sci-fi flick, but with better FX) came through. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devilgrin.gif

Typical summer here. Clear muggy mornings, cool enough to drive around with the top down until about 9. Clouds up and gets into the 90s for most of the day, then some areas get showers and storms in the afternoon.

I've spent the last week cleaning the cellar....

I only really needed 5 full days.

Think I'm gonna clean it again today.

BTW.....Are giant slugs good for anything?.....I've got a whole coffee can full.

Bird food, and scaring the jeebies out of little kids, those kids that don't eat them.

Another record breaking day yesterday, again, 97F, heat index 110F... humidity sucks. Not as hot today, only 94, but we get a break tomorrow and the rest of the week... 80 tomorrow with storms.

This last weekend I was at the race track, and as we all know, race cars and trees don't mix, so there's not a whole lot of shade... 94 on Saturday and 96 on Sunday. I felt very bad for the drivers going out with full race suits on, they were really playing us workers up too.... didn't want their belts to be too tight, didn't want to get in the cars and be ready at the 3, wanted to wait until almost the 1 minute... tempers were getting frayed by the end of the day.

I also ended up with heat exhaustion and was sick as a dog Saturday night. I was laying down in my tent with a bottle of Advil for company by about 8:30pm. Felt better on Sunday but couldn't hack another day on the grid!

Heat index of 110 here too! I was just standing the garage last night just putting a few things back together and the sweat was pouring off of my forehead.

Brutal is all I can say, brutal.

Today is going to be about the same.

Hope my Pa. vacation next week has some nice weather.

Lets put the heat in prespective, last year at this time I was running around Iraq, Kevlar, Body armor and the heat was OVER 130 (no humidity) during the day from June thru Aug. It is hitting 90+ with 90% humidity here but at least no one is shooting at me or trying to blow me up as we drive around. Remember there are lots of guys/gals still over there driving around sweating they butts off

08-02-2006, 10:14 AM
110+ here also....I love it, heat doesn't bother me at all. I am just happy I got the A/C in the caddy fixed. The LBC's seam to run pretty well in this weather too. Took the MGA out last night for a nice drive.

Just think, in a few months we'll all be complaining that its too cold! hehehehe

08-02-2006, 07:36 PM
the power company I work for has set new electric sales records everyday for the last week except today. Today we dumped a 300 MW unit due to a fuse getting loose in it's holder, because of vibration. I didnt know Lucas made industrial stuff, reminds me of things I've found in B's. We'll probably get another record tommorrow.

08-02-2006, 07:42 PM
Cold front approacheth - After our twin tornadoes in March, I've never been so happy to see a thunderstorm. High 81 tomorrow, ahh.
