We've had a nice run of tropical weather interrupted for an hour of so by a T-storm that brung 75mph winds and brought down trees and knocked out power for 600,000 folks in Chicagoland.

Chicago is called the windy city, right? Well, winds are huge here too, its horrible, especially in cold weather.

WHOA! Indeed :applause:

swish mussa melted. I thought for sure he'd be here before me. We are having down right Dallas weather here.

We've had 9 consecutive days at or above 90F, and it won't let up until Monday (85). Today, 99 with 50% humidity and heat index of 109!

I am in Bangalore, India - on vacation from the brain-melter known as Dubai. The weather is blissfully cool. The intermittent drizzles are just soo romantic..  :))

Oh, so you are from India? Gawd, I couldn't have told in million years. For some reason, you sound very European. It probably has to do with the fact that you are a Roger fan. Most Nadal fans are Indians except for Pawan but then again, Pawan with the better taste. lolol.

Well, good to know.   :)

More on topic, darn hot here. <shudder>

Wow! We did it again! The Mother of All T-storms rolled through and the temp dropped to 76. But we bounced back to top off at 91. Currently 89, 53% humidity, feels like 94.

It went something like this.

OK, so today's T-storm was just the Daughter of the Mother of All T-Storms (June 30! Yikes!!!).

Nothing like this because it's nationwide. Here in Chicago, we've only had something similar to this heat wave one other time since they began keeping records in 1870.

The video is absolutely terrifying.. Some serious fireworks going off in Chicago & Gary.. When the storms have passed the scientific community will reason out their occurrence in the region, now??

Since my 'table' updates daily...let me remind you folks about our weather too.  Babbs, I heard about Chicago.  But I STILL rather have this type weather than have my butt freeze to death in Winter up there! :rofl_2:  Just try to stay inside!

The scientific community weighed in years ago, as have the asshats with power. Problem is, power trumps science...still!

The whole week's been hot, and today not quite so hot but the humidity is stifling.
I did the laundry but the clothes weren't completely dry, especially the jeans.
I just hung them around the house but the last check they haven't dried hardly at all after a few hours.

So to combat the heat:
I fill the bathtub up with just cold water when I'm overheated and sweating profusely.
Jump in for 5 minutes or so, It'll keep you cool and not sweating for about 45 minutes.

Generally don't use air conditioning during the day, I want to feel all the discomfort life gives.  ;-()

It was a brutal 8 days for Philly. Eight consecutive days of 90+ degree weather with the dew point above 70%. Friday and Saturday being the worst days ever, 103 and 101, with the heat index above 110. I could not breathe Friday night even with the AC on.
I lost the will to live mid way through the first set!

I guess for you that's bad.  We are in to the 20+ consecutive days of at least 100.  I'm sitting here at 9:05pm and the temp is still showing 101!

Humidity is harder to cool than dry heat. Disadvantage retro, swish, and Babblelot

Sorry guys! You folks are obviously in a lot of distress!! I am thinking, in a week's time it will be back to the 125 F heat of Dubai for me and how I am going to manage it, along with the Ramadan season set to start soon. Take care guys!!

I think you guys are more worried about the drought than the actual heat since 100+ degree is the norm down there.
