Heat Wave

We've been in the midst of a week-long heat wave and everyone needs to stop bitching about it!

First, in June, everyone was complaining on how a crappy summer we were having because temperature weren't high. Now that they are, lets complain some more!

 

I'm loving it! Woo! I hate A/C and I hardly use it in my car. Even though Toronto is under an extreme heat alert.

 

Temperatures are in the 35-40 Celcius (95-104F) but with the humidity it has been feeling more like it's in the 40s (109 F+).

 

So what does every do? Crank up their A/C!

 

Funny enough, on Monday, there was a wide spread power outage across Toronto which forced kids from their online games to go outside and play (it's about time).

 

I was on the to work at that time and almost got T-boned. People need to remember that when the signal lights are not working, they need to treat every intersection as a FOUR WAY STOP!!! GRRRR! I nearly had a heart attack and managed to yell out a few words of anger out to the other driver. Anywho, a 20minute commute turned into a 2 hour commute.

 

I hope this heat wave continues :D! woo!

    Very apt shot. Frankly, I'm not even sure the A/C is able to handle the current amount of heat, but today was far far too hot for me to be driving without the A/C on.

    According to the weather report for Guelph a cold front should be moving through on Friday. For now though A/C's been on in both the car and house. Right now I'm sitting in 24.5 Celsius watching Top Gear. The humidity is dangerous for me as I have bad asthma and have had attacks in this weather before. Well have fun in your summer weather!

    Unbearable! Here in Northern Spain we reach twenty something and we're already feeling horribly due to the heat, I don't even want to imagine what's like reaching up to forty, no thanks! :-P

    People will always complain so there's no stopping that. I hope the heat goes down for a bit though. I don't mind the nice weather, but when it's crazy hot like this, I can't take it!
  • Terence Xiao 5y

    Oh yeah, i can relate to the asthma guy. We need A/C. Good clean filtered air!

    Hope the power has been restored there, Michael, and those hopeless drivers can go back on auto-pilot!

    hurts my throat in cars --im a window fan ---:)

    It has warm down here but not terrible. Maybe I am used to it, not sure. When the humidity is high though, the A/C becomes a necessity. I have not been driving the other car much because the A/C is not working and a black car with black leather that has been sitting in the sun all day is not fun!
  • BOB Mather 5y

    Clever idea
  • Bubba  Willuk (Away) 5y

    Probably wiser to leave it turned on even in the winter months.
  • Derp Fusky PRO 5y

    Haha never meet a person that likes the heat wave!
  • Michael Gil PRO 5y

  • Terence Xiao 5y

    Yay! Congrats to Michael!
    :D
  • William 5y
