    Melting - A Thread about Summer Time

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by JPClyde, Jun 22, 2017.

    You know what makes me cry? When its cool outside, but no wind to carry the cool wind indoors. Who else is melting?

    I have had two storms pass me by today. Well one last night, and one today. Where it just sprinkled a little and left.

    I need air.

    Not melting; more like roasting. It was 101 F in my back yard today. Dry heat - that's what you get in this blasted desert. I yearn for a good day's rain.

    I'm in Colorado. I feel your pain. We have no humidity. None.

    I'm pretty sure I actually died of the heat yesterday.

    The weather here in Michigan has been glorious this spring and now summer after a very mild winter.

    It's quite pleasant in Ontario - cooler than I'd like if I were at the lake, but lovely for going to work!

    I'm British, we moan about how crappy our weather is, then moan when it gets too warm! It is a nightmare trying to sleep at the moment with no air con!
    Feels like someone has stapled my testicles to my legs, it's that warm! (Sorry :D:eek::twisted:)

    It;s been reliably in the 70's - 80's F the last few weeks here in SE Wisconsin, with the very occasion foray into the low 90's. Temps are great, but we've had a lot of thunderstorms and rain this month so far.

    I poured cold water over my sheet last night just to get some sleep. Had the fan on full blast, but all it does is push warm air around...

    Agreed, it's rubbish. We need proper air con units for the 4 days a year or summer we get!
    I even considered sleeping sans clothes, however I had to make sure I played it safe and didnt didn't, you know, monsters and all that.

    When I lived in Toronto, I had an apartment with no AC. When it got too hot, I'd run a cold bath and soak in it for about 45 minutes before bed. It cooled me off enough that I could get to sleep. I'd wake up hot, sure, but I'd sleep all night.

    Ooh yes, I've had a few cool baths this week too. I was kinda tempted to sleep in the tub, but worried about what that'd do to my neck...

    It's been bearable so far. It's barely 20 degrees Celsius right now. Should creep closer to 30 next week but since the sea is so close, summers are usually quite bearable.

    Then again, I'm located slightly north of 60, so I guess I shouldn't expect scorching summer heat.

    Puerto Rico is a sweat-box, a sauna, an episode of Earth with David Attenborough sweating his posh ass off behind some bushes as he describes the daily rituals of the average Puerto Rican in his/her natural environment.

    You can feel bad weather coming, literally. Barometer changes are physically noticeable. The air feels compressed or loose, by turns. The color of the sky is also very telling. We get hit by the dust flying in from Africa while the cloud is still quite visible. The blue of the sky gets bleached out. Pale sky in the morning means biblical rains in the afternoon.

    No, Hudson, it most certainly is not. And yes, dude, you are going to buy it on this rock. Game over, brochacho. Game over.

    This is the worst thing about being a Brit. We just don't have air con anywhere. Fortunately it's a bit cooler today but the past couple of days have being just fucking obnoxious. I've been sweltering.

    I loathe the sun. I have taken a lot of time and self-sacrifice to have perfectly pale goth skin and it's a bugger avoiding direct sunlight for months on end, doubly so because I live on ice cream at this time of year.

    It's perfect in New Hampshire right now. About 75 with zero humidity. Got down into the high 40s last night and I needed to turn a space heater on.

    It'll be minus 20 soon enough. For you too, I would imagine.

    It'll be under water for me soon enough. We had not one but two numbered and named systems grace us with their presence within a single week.

    I get the feeling this summer is going to be like the summer of 2004 when I was still in Florida and we got pimp-slapped by three hurricanes, one after the next. :bigmeh:

    We had Hurricane weather in Colorado Springs recently. In January of this year we had level 5 Hurricane winds that did a lot of property damage. I hear a thunderstorm coming and the clouds are all dark and ominous
