100 plus 2 last week and what seemed like 100 plus 2% humidity too, in Minny-soda.

Last time I was there in February it was 104 degrees cooler.

But you can on accounta the "source" just appeared right after your post.

That reminds me of my onliest two trips to Kansas City, Mark. Both trips inna same year. Temperature 114 degrees apart from one to the other. Didn't like it neither time.

Hot in Minnesota

Today is our 11th day in row over 90 and it's suppposed to keep on going that way. Today's supposed to be 96 AND it's humid to boot.

I liked what Marge said about in Arizone dealing with heat is a nuiscance but it's an emergency elsewhere in the country. That's like snow and cold hereabouts.

Can't wait for snow. (sigh dreaming of a white christmas)

That's a good comparison with snow too Angie. Sometimes when it rains here people fall apart behind the wheel of the car! Thank goodness I work in a serene cave and only have to deal with early AM and late PM.

That's amazing about Minnesota...I didn't know it was legal to get hot there.

Hot and a drought

Yea...hot and the land of 10,000 lakes (but there are really a lot more when people actually got around to counting them instead of just guessing) is having a drought.

Go figure.

I kid you not, in the paper today they interviewed a guy from Minnesota who moved here fulltime last year and is "enjoying" the heat:

"For crying out loud, in Minnesota all you have to do is add more clothes. For crying out loud, in Phoenix you can only get so naked!"

Is "for crying out loud" a Minn-eee-sooo-ta thingy?

According to some Scientific scientists who study science an stuff.... this
kinna heat /Global warming / can cause certain pieces of ice
to melt to fast over on some iceburgs somewhere in the norhtern atlantic
ocean and fall into the sea. To much fresh water, to fast in the old
atlantic over there has been speculated to have the power to actually
cause the next ice age. Theres a great big salt water current that has
its route from north to south, i think they might have said somethin about
the elevation of the specific current as well. This current is one of the main
contributors to global weather systems as well. if it gets changed supposedly
they are all gonna change. im no doomsday naysayeer or nothin... just somethin to
ponder. Besides you might wanna think twice before you go buyin all kinds new shorts
an airconditioners , you might consider a parka and some snow shoes?

Theres a whole bunch to the story and of course alllll of our perfectionists
will quote me an pick me apart.... ill just say , Look it up

Talking

The first time I visited my sister in law's relatives in Tucson was over Labor Day weekend in 2003. Even though it was monsoon season, temperatures were hovering around 103-108 the entire time. The only difference between Tucson and San Antonio (where I lived at the time)? The humidity...5% in Tucson versus 75% in San Antonio. I quickly learned to love the dry heat.

They have similar sayings in Oklahoma. One can carry on conversations for hours with the following phrases...

"I tell you what."
"You bet."

First let us clarify the spelling of the phrase. It's "Fer cryin' out loud," not for cryin' out loud, fer cryin' out loud.

And I remember growing up with it in Pennsylvania, too, as would any of youins that lived there.

Oh, it's time to medicate...

Won't help. Program says you're Bob. You are Bob, ain't ya?

Maybe Marge should stop medicating, instead.
