My zone of Texas usually is, but thanks to a whole lot of rain, we've had some fairly cool days.

I don't get how people can go to the beach when it's this hot. That's not even nice warm weather. And the UV rays are dangerously high. I'm pretty pale so I needed to put on sunscreen just to go outside for about 30 minutes. Couldn't imagine going to the beach under this goddamn heat.

I'm no where near a beach, but it tends to be waterparks. Which, except for the horror that is hot concrete, I think I have more fun at.

The last time I was at a beach was in...2011. In Florida. In January.
My brother's and I had planned to not go in the water, but it ended up happening anyway. It was fun for how freezing cold it was.

The last time I went to the beach was in 2004 or 2005. Not a beach person myself. Being pale combined with not knowing how to swim does that.

Yeah, I was pretty much taught to swim from the time I was a little baby, so it wasn't a problem for me.

More the fact that yeah. Ocean water in the winter is cold. Not fun in more sensitive regions of the body.

Depends on where on Earth you are (if you can call it winter near Earth's equator).

Yeah, still pretty cold in spite of what many people think.

My grind is the heat right now. walked down to the mailbox and nearly had a meltdown. Not a good sign for the rest of summer. Walking to and from work is going to be a real b**ch....

I don't mind the heat so much, depending on how hot, but the humidity... ugh. Had been pretty good lately, even through some recent 90s, but today is only low 80s but feels terrible. Try to breath outside and you might risk drowning.

Supposed to be back to around 90 tomorrow, so I hope the humidity lets up.


Today's grind though is that it was hot at work when I got there this morning. They put in a new system just last fall and it's already not working??

Fortunately some guys were there working on it so it didn't remain bad. I really don't want any repeats of what happened last summer.

Quite. Though I'd prefer the Atlantic over the Pacific for sure.

Look at that difference this time of year... What, does the Pacific freeze over in winter? We've got like a giant hot tub on this side now. Though if you hoped to cool off at the beach, forget it.

Yeah humidity is a pain and my city is by a river, meaning it tends t have high humidity. Lots of heat combined with high humidity is hell.

It's been raining now... but still hot as hell. It's like this country is turning into a South East Asian country with tropical weather

84 F at the Texas coast!? What is happening!?


I've realized my homework that's due tomorrow at midnight was a lot shorter than I thought...and I've been putting it off. Though, granted, I was crazy busy with other things that it's probably better I did it on a weekend.

Also, trying to figure out foreshortening on Utroms, especially in...unique positions. It might seem easy, but it's not!

Not for packages. I order stuff from amazon and eBay a lot (mostly dollhouse items or comics). Those fit in my mailbox pretty easily most of the time. Or our relatives. They still send everything snail-mail. Especially my grandmother and her church bulletins. Or his mom (actually all our relatives) and holiday/birthday cards. And of course the endless pile of medical bills, or those advertisement papers that always seem to fill our box. Yeah, no shortage of REAL mail for us any time soon, LOL!

Sweet mother, I can relate! It is sweltering inside our store, too. Even worse since they HAVE AC but keep it turned too low to help the heat situation, especially near the kitchen area, or the drive through windows. And it is only going to get hotter as summer progresses. couple that with the two-mile walk, and I foresee a miserable summer for me....

Eek o.O

Is there a freezer you can keep a bottle of water in through the shift so it's there for the walk home?

Better. We have fountain drink machines of course, with ice water and non-carb drinks I can carry home in the bottle I keep with me. So that's not really a problem. Just that it's a looong walk and only has any shade along maybe about half my route. With long stretches of unshaded walking in between. It's just like being in Hell, except without the entertainment....

What is happening for the weather to be that messed up where I live? It's been very hot since May and borderline tropical weather. I thought Trump said global warming was a Chinese farce...

I thought Portugal was always that very hot from May until September something.

No. May is traditionally a rain and thunderstorm month. Not a month where max temps reach 30C. Same for September. hell not even June tends to be a month where max temps reach 30C, let alone 39-40 degrees. That's more in July and August.

Also, the North is a bit colder and can be pretty cold in the Winter, as in minimum temperatures between -2C and 7C.

And for the record, Lisbon has a lot of rain for a southern European cit.y Pretty sure it's the Southern European capital with the highest amount of yearly rain. It's not always sunny here and when it rains it rains FOR REAL.

Remember that Portugal doesn't touch the Mediterranean, but the Atlantic only. So it's not like it's Sicily, Greece or Andalusia.

But snow in Portugal must be rare?

It's crazy in this country too... My area hit 90F in April. VERY very not normal.

It DIDN'T used to be normal for us to hit 80s in May, but it has been that way for the last number of years. This year it's 90s (which used to be an August thing). The temperatures are also still very unsteady though, it's weird.

Yeah, global warming, total crock, when will the Chinese stop pretending its real so we can stop this.
