hot in herre [Jun. 6th, 2003|03:19 pm]
Just me.
[mood |eating coconut popsicles]

it's in the 90's today here in seattle. This is uncommon and people on the local news are commenting about how hot it is. As a former southerner, I almost wish that instead of being home on my day off assembling record shelves, I was somewhere outside where I could have a bit of schadenfreude. Okay you wimpy Puget Sounders, spend 24 consecutive Augusts in Louisiana, where the humid summer is like 3 endless months of being humped daily by a wet, clingy Labrador Retriever the moment you walk out your door, and THEN you can earn the right to judge when it's "hot".

That said, if it's this hot up here, my sympathy to anyone in Chicago. Texas, or south of the Mason Dixon Line, where it's probably 95 and then some. Remember; coconut popsicles are your friends! Yummmm..

when i was in texas for memorial day, it was hot, damn hot. it still seems cool here by comparion. of course we were outside the entire time and not in a building that's having blackouts because of power consumption.

I am/getting so cold/ I'm gonna put my coat on....

It's been in the 60's for a week here. We had a few nights of lows in the low 30's. June, and we had the heat on.

The crucial difference is that we had air conditioning in the South.

Did I know you were from Louisiana? I can't remember. My dad's from Baton Rouge.

A girl in my kung fu class is moving to D.C. In August. She has my sympathies.

This? This is nice, pleasant, dry weather. I might go for a bike ride later, when the angle of the sun doesn't ensure Instant Crispy G.

i think so...

I think I knew your dad was from Stick Red. That's where I am from as well.

When I was living in SF, I visited Chicago in August. the temprature change btwn boarding the plane and arriving was like 30 degrees. My skin broke out and I got the female condition commonly caused by sitting around in a wet nylon swimsuit within 4 hours of arriving. Not fun.

This is pleasant heat. I am loving it. I'd go out and pull weeds if I wasn't gonna be at werk all day.

What a great analogy!

It's a shame you couldn't hear my laughter!
