How is Texas nowadays?

I for one, never year shorts during the summer. Cowboy boots+shorts= never epic, thus jeans in the middle of anything :D



Right now its about 90 with i'd say close to 40% humidity here in dallas. Not that bad really.

I actually broke my air conditioner, so....

At least it's not humid yet.
When it is I'll be able to scare little kids with my hair.  :mellow:

No of course I was fine with the heat...

Hmm, looks like the rain got cancelled.

I had to walk to the library to return a tape. It's a little warm. Good thing Carbondale has one of those old school Dairy Queens.

It cooled down by me. I'm in Phoenix, AZ. It was in the hundreds last week, so I froze in Chicago during ACEN.

That's around what it was in my neck of the woods today too. Tomorrow should be more of the same, if not a bit worse, before we are expected to get some storms tomorrow evening.

I use to work at Wal-Mart, people must have known about a secret area or something cause I was the only one besides cart pushers that would have a soaked shirt after an hour...O wait...that was cause I was the only one actually doing any work...Even so, I was always blazing hot in the store, even though "management" said the AC was cranked.

Yeah, they said that the AC was on today. I didn't feel it. I was seriously sweating - and cranky - at the register today. I nearly snapped at least ten times at customers and my supervisors today.
I came home and hugged my AC literally. My mom laughed but I didn't care; I missed it. XD

...And I get to do the same thing tomorrow. Dear god. x.X

I had to work 8hrs outside Sunday in the 90 degree weather. It's funny how many people complained when they only had to be outside in it for 10 minutes.

Personally, I've dealt with worse. A few summers ago I had to clean out the stables at my aunts barn in 110 degrees, wash all 5 horses, catch the chickens (all 12 of those bastards), & catch the 2 sheep that somehow got loose. Then I finally got a shower & food, plus I think I got paid $25 which went into my gas tank.

I forgot some jerkbait turned our thermostat in the kitchen down to forty.

Needless to say if you turn it down too far the system shorts and I have to deal with the unbearable heat. And on top of that there was a nacho cheese asplosion in our microwave that wasn't cleaned up when it happened so I had to clean that up. And the heat made everyone extremely testy. Plus our freezer likes to suck arse in the summer, so it wont do what it is intended to do, and that's freeze stuff. Thats what you get with poor ventilation in the hottest part of the kitchen.

Going to be an interesting summer here.

I was raised down south in Florida and Louisiana so the heat doesn't bother me much unless its ridiculously humid outside...

99 degree dry heat with the sun blazing? No problem! I'll wear my black t-shirt and go fishing. no shoes or sandals for walking on that hot pavement? thats ok, in louisiana we barely wear shoes outside anyways!

But hit me with a high humidity and my energy just vanishes...I can't stand hot muggy weather like it was on Sunday, and that day we had no AC either -shakes fist at landlord-

In other news, the sun has finally come out in Montana. Our vampire population was wiped out because they didn't know what that giant glowing orb was. After all, we haven't seen it in three months.

Funny thing with old people is they forget things, like in order to call me you would need my number. At this rate she just might forget she can't walk on water while up there.

You get my undying affection for the imagery this presented. Thank you, Ben, thank you.


Oh, and you tykes complaining about heat? Lemme tell you a fun little story about heat. The AC at the shelter is on the fritz. Sunday was the worst day, because not only was it hot and humid outside, but it became almost unbearingly hot and humid in select sections of the shelter (i.e. Main Cat Room). We opened up all the windows we could (not many), and turned on the two box fans we have, but even that didn't help cool the room any. And because our bosses want to make sure we're staying productive, we had to keep moving around finding stuff to do, rather than sit and stay cool. (That's not to say we couldn't take quick breaks every so often...but we couldn't give the impression that we were being lazy.)

And while all of this was going on, amidst the cleaning and moving around we had to do, we were so focused on making sure the animals stayed hydrated that it was a challenge for us to keep ourselves hydrated. I did my best to do so...and STILL managed to go home at the end of the day with heatstroke.

Thankfully, the animals are okay, and even more thankfully, we'll be getting a new AC unit within the week. The irony? I've worked three summer seasons at Great America in the past. You'd think I wouldn't be complaining about heat and humidity after that...except in this case I will, because the heat and humidity was stuck INDOORS, and we had nowhere to escape since it was hot outside too. Huzzah.
