Respectful Insolence

You know it’s hot when…

…while driving to work at 6:30 AM you notice the thermometer in your car already registers the outside temperature as 83 degrees Farehnheit.

Ack.

    …or when you go to bed at midnight and it is still hotter than when you awoke at 4:30AM…

    …or when you go out at noontime and the heat sort of reminds you of Vietnam…and you prefer that in Vietnam…

    …or you read the morning paper about a geographical oddity and decide that you will spend your summer looking for more of them…

    It’s not exactly like you’re breaking rocks in your job, dude. :-)

    A killer argument for why Celsius should be used as the standard for temperature… It’s easier to spell.

    … when you open your bottle of sunscreen and it comes out as a funny-colored liquid, suggesting the ingredients have started to separate.

    It’s only 90 in St. Louis today and it feels great! Turned off my AC and opened the windows. I can even live with the storms that must come with this cold front.

    In Toronto a couple of days ago, it was 35 Celsius (95 F), but was 50 C (122 F) when you consider the humidex. And in Toronto, the air is yellow.

    That’s Hell, Michigan, of course, on the Lower Peninsula. Anywheres near your part of Mich, btw? I can just imagine the reactions of the fundies if you were able to say you grew up in a ‘suburb of Hell.”

    Hell is a rather small town in lower Michigan-too far away from Detroit to be a suburb. They have a 5K race every year, so you see people with “I ran through Hell for this T-shirt” shirts. The Upper Peninsula has a town of Paradise, though it has been hot even up there.
