well, i'm curious: how is the US heat wave affecting you? I live in detroit, and on Monday we hit 95 with a heat index of 110. it's 2 am, and my thermometer still reads 101.9 indoors. I never thought I could sweat sitting still, but here I am. we dont have AC at our house, so we have approx. 2 dozen fans blasting on high throughout the house, and it really doesnt help, thier just moving the hot air.
the worst part: tommarow is gonna get even hotter, up to 100 in Detroit, heat index to 115.
last week, when I was on vacation, I went up to just north of Alger, Michigan, about 150 miles north of here, and it didnt get hotter than 88. really nice. wonder exactly how it is up there now?...
oh and get this: the local power copany is actually offering discounts on your power bill in exchange for your participation in a voluntary blackout. that, and all the local librarys and anything with AC have become cooling centers.
oh, and the heat is actullay beginning to effect my electronics. most are raited to 160F, but even them are starting to overheat and malfunction. my cell phone actuallty crashed and powered off, and the damn thing had a full battery at the time.
so, how about you? does it feel like 1988 all over again? (read: there was a heat wave about the same time in 1988, atleast in Detroit. and yes, I was born that year, in August, in the middle of the heat wave.)
