Heat Wave

Wednesday, July 19, 2006
Our nation is now in the grips of a deadly heat wave. Now, living in the Pacific Northwest (hereafter abbreviated as "PNW") I personally feel that a "heat wave" is any three consecutive days where temperature peak above 95 degrees. However, I also only count it as rain if I have to set my windshield wipers to "on" versus just hitting the mist wipe from time to time.

So it's a heat wave. While it's supposed to be 85 degrees or so around here today, apparently tomorrow it's supposed to fucking hot this coming weekend... and I'm NOT looking forward to that. Maybe Sunday I can go swimming or something but Friday and Saturday with 100+ degree temperatures? No thanks.

So the whole point of this post is to talk about the weather. I guess I got tired of talking about people in the Middle East killing each other...
Hot days are rare in the PNW, generally speaking. One of the benefits of being here is that the temperatures are - for the most part - usually between 40 and 90 degrees for most of the year. We don't get an unreasonable amount of: sun, snow, or humidity. It's great! You just have to learn that it's wet most of the winter and you're set.

So I guess the whole point of this post is to talk about the weather. I guess I got tired of talking about the fact that people in the Middle East can't stop killing each other.
