It's hot out

I can see why so many people move out during this time of year.

It's horrible right now.

On Tuesday afternoon, the sweltering heat prompted weather warnings in parts of Central Florida.

The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for coastal Volusia and all of Brevard counties, where the heat index values were between 106 and 111 degrees. The advisory is in effect until 7 p.m.
Stay safe, folks!

Yup, I got out late this morning and paid for it. 100+ heat index.

I was fine, I try to drink a lot of water and sometimes a gatorade if I have a long day outside.

Tomorrow I promised myself to get out earlier.

It has been mild in Oklahoma. My high to date has been 96. But it has been wet. We have a chance at 100 this Sat.

Baz, you use Frogtog's? Can be grabbed in any surf shop or online.

Makes it feel 20 degrees cooler out when I put an ice cold one on.

I believe we all make mistakes but I will not validate your poor choices and/or perversions and subsidize the results your actions.

June Gloom, here in SoCal. Cloudy and overcast in the morning, but often burns off by mid-day to be a cloudless and pleasant afternoon. I'm not complaining, as I know it'll soon be triple-digits. Even with low humidity, 115 is still 115 freakin' degrees.

It's probably the same in Florida, OK, and many other parts of the country, but what really sux here in North Texas is that it does not cool off at night (at least by normal standards) - this is a time period where it is common for the "lows" to be in the lower 80's, and I shiit you not, it is often above 90 well after midnight. At least there is only 4 months or so until a cooldown!

So this is why we suffer through 4 months of winter and 3 months of tornadoes. 81 degrees this afternoon. Worked from 8 to 2, had lunch and hopped into the pool with an adult beverage or 2 or so until dinner time.

Only gloomy this morning here. High in the upper 60s, moderate breeze, and sunny this afternoon.

60's is winter here in Florida, we have bon fires, wear our long pants and sweaters and put on coats.


I personally do not mind the heat, 100+ is fine by me it has never bothered me. Drop into the 40's and hear me whine like a baby.

Here you go fellas, the hotter it gets the less they wear, this is a cam on Ocean Drive in South beach.
