Blastfurnace 2020: The Forcefield strikes back

Recommended Posts

Can’t tell you how much this thread makes me want to come back to TX.  High of 71 in my little slice of SoCal today.

So... gettin' near 100° today, will probably make it Friday and Saturday.  Then the high moves west and temps come down into the mid-90's.

Not me, but Spencer:

Sunday and Monday’s forecast highs of 106 and 107 degrees in Austin would be the hottest temperatures we have recorded in two full years. The hottest we were last summer was 105 degrees. In July 2018, Austin’s highs reached 110 degrees.

Jim rolling out with 106 and 107 as the highs while my other weather sources are rolling with 100 and 102.

Jumpin' Jimbo's never been known to sensationalize anything, has he?

The dog gets walked at 6 am, 11 am, then 9 PM so as not to melt into the earth. 

We cut the 11am walk out because it’s too damn hot in July/August for a dog’s feet on pavement at that point.   
 

I walk my dog for 5+ miles every morning at around 6:30/7.   We sometimes go at night for another 1-2 miles if the wife wants to walk, which is sporadic right now since she’s 6.5 months pregnant

Once it gets up to 100, my primary ac just can’t keep up. House won’t get below 78 until 8pm or so.

Holy shit. I don’t let my house get above 74, upstairs and downstairs. The AC for downstairs is set to 68 at night so I can sleep and 71 upstairs for my son. I can’t sleep if it’s hot.

My complex is overflowing with massive oak trees so it is easy to keep her in the shade. All the sidewalks here are shaded.

Some dip fuck who moved here from califuck, never experienced a Texas summer,  actually complained about the trees because of the birds shitting all over his precious Audi. Just wait until he sees the log I'm gonna lay on the hood.

Well......it is. Give me 13% humidity over 45% humidity any day in the summer. I don't know how you fuckers in Houston handle it.

10 degrees above average for the 20th day in a row for the 20th year in a row.  Nope, nothing to see here.  All made in the shade.  

This is not gonna have the intended Covid-19 effect that many thought.

At this exact moment?  No.  But we're supposed to top off at 95 on a typical July 11.  We're headed quickly towards ten degrees above that, again.  And of course, year after year we are way over the usual highs.  Which of course, drag the averages up with them.  But yeah, I get it.  Texans love it at 105 and nothing is wrong ;)

I'm not complaining about summer this year. Sure a few hot days are coming up, but there was some good rain in early July and quite a few great weather days this summer. We'll see if I feel this way September 1.

I flew in from Phoenix yesterday. 114 degrees. Fuck that. The “dry heat” is fucking bullshit. You stand there and the hot wind cooks your face.

What rain in early July? It’s dry AF. Haven’t seen shit here (78633) since early June. Amazing we aren’t in a burn ban.

103/112 here in my slice of NW Austin. Dog getting anxious to go for a walk because I walked him pretty early. That's gonna be about four more hours bud.

lord of the rings one does not simply walk into mordor GIF

On the plus side, tomorrow's 105 is supposed to have a slightly lower heat index because it'll a little be less humid. So there's that.

In the shade in my pool that feels like a bathtub (water at all time high of 89) with yeti filled with two beers that are already getting hot.

Fuck this. I need a summer home in New Zealand.

Oh ya it’s not comparable. But I’ve lost my Texas heat tolerance and a lot here don’t have AC so the increasing hot weather is a bitch.

If anyone’s been to DC or Philly in a summer heatwave can relate to how much summer fucking sucks.  
 

But yea you guys keep the 100+ bullshit. We were in Dallas last summer for those 105 degree days and I wanted to literally die,

DC and Philly are fucking nightmares during a heat wave.

I don't know where you live but that has not been a thing anywhere near where I live in at least a decade. Kids now are lazy and don't know how to mow. Prepare to pay $60 a pop.

I’m in sw Austin and get kids to mow from next door. I’ve been too busy working from home to do it myself this summer. I find kids to take the oak leaves a couple of times a year as well. Only problem is it usually a father forcing his kid to mow to save for college, so eventually they do go off to college so you have to find a new one. Always good workers as well since their dads are probably hard asses

Summer of '69 worked as a flagman on Hwy 84 in Waco (initial construction of i-35).  28 days in July over 100. Average 101.6. Nothing new here.

Was in Pa last week. Was also muggy. It sucked. Not as bad as Texas but definitely sucked.  The people up there were dying. I completely soaked on shirt on a hike that looked like I’d jumped in the lake with it. I spent an hour breaking camp at 9:00 am and it was pretty miserable. It was hot enough that we went and bought a portable trim AC for $350 at Loews. Walmart was all sold out of their portable AC’s.

I thought the portable trim was in the tent?

Over the past 5 years or so , I've really grown to dislike the scorching July/August weather in Texas, but god damn does this year take the cake.

At least at in the past you could catch a baseball game or a movie, or meet up with friends at a well-shaded bar with fans on blast. Weekend activity options are basically now limited to (i) sit inside house in AC, (ii) jump in pool that feels like luke-warm bath water, or (iii) die.
