Well yes, perspective. There are something like 2,000,000 without power in the mid-Atlantic, I think, from the weekend storms.
Why hasn’t Obama sent them solar generators and emergency workers driving Chevy Volts?
Must be George Bush is stopping him???
I see the heatwave figures of 'RealFeel' temps of 115 out East past the Rockies and feel bad for all those people. Gotta be that Global Warming apocalypse that Al Gore swore was true.
Couple more months here and I'll be shoveling the first snowfall off the driveway, I bet.
Around here, we figure folks who whine about the heat when it ain't even triple digits are yankees. We cut them folk up in Colorado some slack, as fire ain't no fun for anyone. Last year I rode my harley from Dallas to Houston on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year. It was like riding through an oven for 6 hours. I left after midnight when I came back home, because I figured 95 degrees by moonlight was a more pleasant ride than 105+ in the sun.
Last summer Dallas had over 90 straight days of 100 degree temps. It was between 105-109 for 20 days in a row.
Get over it and get a real AC, pay your electric bill, and stay inside. Its not that difficult to understand.
I hate summer more with every passing year.
We are sweltering to your north too, here in southern WI.
No rain since Memorial Day.
Crops are dying in the fields.
100 yesterday, 100 today.
The weather symbol on the 5 day forecast is a thermometer that is on fire.
My aunt was in the evacuation zone in Co.Springs. She is back home now and safe.
I know Last Chance, CO too, as I pass through it on my way to CO when I visit The Springs.
Everyone, pray for rain in southern WI. We are desperate for it.
Continued prayers for those in Colorado and the rest of the west.
Lord Bless Us With Gentle Soaking Rains and Cooler Temperatures. Amen.
