It's supposed to be 30 degrees here tomorrow....the heat is going up so fast that the radiators are still on in my building. It's going to be a bad bad day. (For you Americans: 30 = 86 or fucking hot for Vancouver )

And we are having a very coolish spring so far. I am loving the weather but I know it will hit 100 soon enough. So long as we don't get the high humidity up from Houston it isn't that bad. I remember when I lived in the Cascades and when it hit 86, it was hot for the mountains of Oregon.

It's 99 here. We're cooler than SF?

Let San Franciscans use plastic bags or there will be hell to pay!!!!

I don't mind the heat but it's muggy too and that is just too much to take.

"Gay people exist. There's nothing we can do in public policy that makes more of us exist, or less of us exist. And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to essentially demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist, but you don't make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of more discrimination, and more discrimination doesn't make straight people's lives any better." -Rachel Maddow to Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed

It is insane... with a sore throat, I am doing nothing but sucking down popsicles and perusing the local movie theater for matinée performances. I walked outside and felt a HOT breeze. Geez, I thought it was hot in the Caribbean! I didn't expect to come home to this!

I won't be missing tornado season in central IL (though the local NPR station's yearly severe weather show and detailed crop reports were always entertaining).

i was worried that i might not have enough weather to be worrying about on a daily basis now that winter is over, but then came my discovery of tornado activity in the region. now i'm utterly paranoid about leaving the dogs alone in the house. i have to see if mrs. jones will go for moving their crates to the north-west corner of the basement. (yes, i've already researched tornado survival tips and discovered that the taking shelter in the south-eastern corner of the basement thing is a myth.)

In the 50s all day and rainy here in NYC. I don't know why I was worried earlier that I might need to use my ACs while the window renovation project was going on. Heck, I had my winter coat on a few days ago.

I was going to run outside, but when I stepped outside the heat was stifling. It was ok when I dropped off the kids at school, but an hour later and it feels like baking beach hot.
