This summer hasn't been very hot - sure we've had some 90 degree days - but it has been dry and the humidity has been low - but not today - now this is hot. Very hot. Sticky and steamy - as soon as you walk outside the air feels thick. I hate this weather

Today's the first day the hmidity's been real oppressive and the air isn't moving. It wasn't bad when I went to lunch but this afternoon it had built up - HI of 106 in Lafayette. Got a cookout at 6 this evening too - maybe it'll rain and we'll have to stay inside.

I think I'll read the first snow thread - maybe I'll feel better.

Damn geezer, you're right. It's so close I can almost taste it. It's always hot that first week of October; but at the end of October, when the leaves are falling, and the highs are around 50 degrees, and the wind has just that little brisk feeling, and that monster buck walks right underneath you . . . it gets no better than that my friend.

Well, that is, as long as your gas doesn't scare the poor ******* away. :arrgh:

Ya know that's true, you have to be careful though . . . One extra bowl of chili or an extra jalapeno cheese venison brat will turn that gas from tranquilizer to lethal. :D

Today:

Humidity 65%

Barometer 30.01


It's the water temp that's the big concern. It should be around 65. As I understand it, the unusually high pacific ocean temp is a contributing factor to the heat wave out east.

Unclebuck

Everyone is quick to say, "I'll take 95 degrees anyday over winter"

I wouldn't. I would rather have a normal winter day with highs in the mid to upper 30's and lows near 20. if it is dry, then I would take the winter day. I'm talking about for a typical workday.

My ideal day is highs in the mid 60's and lows in the mid 40's - that is perfect for me and we have two of those days a year. One in early October and one in Mid April.


LA, I thought it was understood you are not allowed to make any comments about the weather. I don't care if it is August and we are 95 and you are 72, or if it is January and we are 2 and you are 72.

I'm with Buck and his temp range. I LOVE fall and the time when I wear a flannel shirt as a jac-shirt.

I run the car AC so cold the wife and son take jackets with them if we use my car. I like my glasses to fog when I get out of the car, that's how cold I run it. Fortunately we have zone temp control in the Caddie.
But the wife has learned to bundle up as the cold helps keep me awake while I'm driving.

Cold at night keeps me from snoring too. ;)

I used to love hot weather. Worked in both TX and AR - outdoor work. Just keep drinking water and sweating. Nothing better than taking a shower after that and grabbing a beer - you're all clean, sweated out and relaxed.

My heat control isn't as good as it used to be - now when it's real hot and I'm in it I tend to get headaches. But I still like it warm - upper 80's and a nice breeze works.

When I'm sitting around and sleeping's another story - I don't like to sweat when I'm just hanging out.

ChicagoJ
08-10-2007, 03:04 PM
If I wasn't having issues with my plantar fasciaitis/ achilles tendon this summer, this would be GREAT running weather. Work up a real sweat, hamstrings don't get cold/ tight, etc.

I'm a bit grumpy that I can't get out and enjoy it properly.

Anything below about 60 degrees and I'm shivering and miserable.

I'm the exact same way. I crank up the A/C in my car. Everyone else always freezes. I figure that have the high speed blower/fan for a reason.

Also I like to keep my A/C at 68 degrees at night when I'm sleeping and around 70 during the day, unless I'm working at home then I like it at 68 or lower.

You how this time of year you walk into grocery stores and it seems freezing - that is how I like it. And you know how you see people bring a sweater (this time of year) into a movie theater - I think it is too warm in the theaters.
I'm sure everyone knows people who refuse to turn their A/C on in their house or car unless it is 90 degrees or unless it is July or at least June - I've been known to turn the A/C on in January if it is a rare sunny and mild day.

Many of you are probably saying - wow you use so much energy - how could you. Well I figure I make up for it during the winter. If I have complete control over the temp inside the house/apartment or wherever I'm living I keep it somewhere between 62 and 65. One year when I was living alone in an apartment I did not turn the heat on at all until December 5th. If it is a sunny day I rarely use the heater in my car during the winter.

Don't get me wrong if I'm outside and it is 15 degrees, I get as cold as anyone else, but I just like "room temperature to be about 10 degrees colder than most people.

I'm with UB I love to be cold especially when I'm sleeping. Its gotta be 68 degrees or less for me to sleep comfortably. I keep the A/C at about 72 and I have the ceiling fan in my room going at night. I'd much rather be too cold and be able to put on another blanket or more clothes than be way too hot.

Buck we shoulda been roomies. Although I always ran best when it was super hot out...lungs couldn't take running in the cool (60 or below).

BTW Jay...I destroyed my feet running on pavement with old shoes. I've had PFac for years but when I used the old shoes.....badabing.

Now I've progressed beyond PD into full blown tendonitis. Doc says that essentially everytime I take a step I'm spraining my ankles. By evening the area around the protuding ankle bone and top of my foot is swollen and painful. Good luck with yours. (Get the best shoes possible!!!)

It's 90 and humid in Palm Beach.

It's that way every day from June through mid-September. Never above 93 or so (unlike Orlando and other inland parts which get 98+) and never below 87 or so as a high.

But...

from October 31 through March 31 last year, we ran NEITHER the heat nor the air conditioning at any time, except during that rainy Super Bowl week when we need to run AC a while just to de-humidify.

It was 65-75 every day, 50-65 every night. 5 full months of near-perfect weather. It's just at a time of the year when most places don't have anything nice going.

You've just ensured that Spicoli will be onto this thread.

Back in the day when I had roommates, we cooked a big arsed pot of chili very similar to the one in that picture. What my roommate failed to tell me at the time was that he put a full habanero in the pot and let it cook with everything else. For anyone that doesn't know what a habanero is; it's kind of like a jalapeno on steroids. Probably 10 times as spicy.

I still remember the day; it was one of those perfect autumn saturdays that was fairly cool and there were some great college football games on. Couldn't pick a better day for homemade chili....

So unbeknownst to me I scoop out a big assed bowl and dump probably 1/2 a pound of cheese on top of it. Well that farking habanero got scooped up and buried just like everything else in the bowl. Needless to say, about 10 bites in, I eat that entire farking pepper without realization of what it was.

Fast forward 10 minutes, as I'm still coming up with inventive ways to cool my mouth off and finally I begin to succeed. Little did I know the worst was yet to come as I start to develop the world's worst stomach pains. I thought I was having an ulcer or something.

Fast forward another 45 minutes, and that pepper is still working its way down; and I am literally cramped up on my bed in agony . . . . when it hits.

All the sudden I make a mad dash for the toilet and literally ***** fire out of my arse. Think Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber bad, only much more painful. I swear there were flames in my intestines. I was just happy to discover no internal bleeding had taken place.

Of course, after that I went on to consume about 18 beers to ease the pain a little, which brought on a whole new round of problems the next day. :D

Habaneros are scary to cook with - jalapenos, well, if you're a little off, no big deal. If you're sprinkling some dried habanero into something and cough - well, you may end up having to make 2x as much of whatever you're cooking.

A friend of mine gave me a few from his garden. I will say this though, when I make my "jerky of death" it can really add that extra something to it.

If you don't live on the beach, August and July are hot in LA. Still better than Indiana summers. I dislike it when it's in the 90's. Still much better than snow. I hate snow.

I have high arches and short tendons. Running distance doesn't work for me. When I played soccer in college, I just lived the season in pain. I'd only be able to go every other day towards the end of the season. When I didn't take care of it with resting, stretching, icing...tendonitist was the most painful thing I ever felt.
