Heat news...  
I saw this article and was pretty stunned and I felt like sharing. My online news isn't giving me these numbers, but Woodland Hills, for those of you who don't know, is within walking distance of my house. I'm just glad we haven't had any power outages (cross fingers, say prayers). It's actually been relatively decent in our house, although I know I have several friends who can't say that.

Temperatures topped out in Woodland Hills at 119 degrees

Two words: Alaska.

...the record low in Nome is -54.

Now if we had a summer home AND a WINTER home...

And the mosquitos are so big there that some people call them the state bird.

Okay, now that is just freakin' SCARY. It's another reason I don't ever want to live in Texas or Florida. I cannot deal with giant bugs.

And hey, long time no see in LJ!

"And the mosquitos are so big there that some people call them the state bird."

Yeah, but there's no limit on 'em and they fry up real good.

"...the record low in Nome is -54."

And your point would be... ?

"Now if we had a summer home AND a WINTER home..."

I'm game for that, although I might spend more time in Alaska than you. Remember, I'm the guy who wants to get the vanity plate that reads "I H8 LA".

My Dad's best friend has a place in Alaska, and one in Arizona.

"My Dad's best friend has a place in Alaska, and one in Arizona."

So, which one is the summer place, and which one is the winter place?

Skagway and L.A. That's my choice.

Skagway. Now that's a Bevilicious name...

And you would never have to worry about me borrowing your car.

Now all we have to do is win publishers clearing house or invent a better mousetrap =\

And you're just over the hills from us!!! Dang. Hot and humid. This sucks. We've not experienced any power outages...yet. Thank goodness for AC. We were at a friend's place for dinner last night in the Palisades and he didn't have AC. I thought I was going to pass out, LOL.
Fritters: Zim google-eyes by inanefritters on July 24th, 2006 03:27 am (UTC)
How hot was it? I can't believe they still had people over for dinner when they had no air! We actually had dinner over at a friends last night too, and even with the air (it wasn't set very low) we were still all with sweat running off our faces at the table. I can only imagine how much worse it was for you. Wow.
thudpucker: Farscape coffee - by Erniemaythudpucker on July 24th, 2006 03:43 am (UTC)


She's right. The dining room table is glass, and my elbows kept slipping around in the little pools of sweat. Ewww.

Thank God it was a nice, light dinner - one suitable for a warm evening. Saurkraut and six kinds of pork.


MollieAdognotspicy on July 24th, 2006 03:09 pm (UTC)
I would guess it was in the mid to high 80s with high humidity. It was pretty dang uncomfortable. There's nothing worse than having to eat when you're dripping with sweat, LOL.

Nest time my friend Ethan tries to get me to move to CA, I'm sending him that.

Nah, the weather climate wouldn't bother you half as much as the political climate. Air conditioning can fix a lot, but it's hard to stop stupidity.
khystrakhystra on July 24th, 2006 07:26 am (UTC)
117? That's what the humidex is supposed to be tommorow!
Found me a temperature converter online.
ANd now for a cold version . . . when I was waaaaaay up north, it was soo cold (how cold was it?) Well, my car wouldn't start and it was in the garange. It was . . . drumroll please . . . (convert convert convert) -67 with a -88.6 windchill! Yaay!

I still can't believe I went to work on that day. Eight hours with NO customers . . .
Fritters: Zim google-eyes by inanefritters on July 24th, 2006 07:47 am (UTC)
I can't believe you worked that day, either! Did the news say stay home? At least you got paid for doin' nuffin'...
Fritters: TT Raven chagrined by ellonwyefritters on July 24th, 2006 07:48 am (UTC)
...and sorry for not converting, I had in my last posts, I just forgot to the celcius/fahrenheit thing this time ^_^
khystrakhystra on July 26th, 2006 10:07 pm (UTC)
Don't apologise! I grew up with CBC and four Detroit stations. I knew Farenheit just as well, if not better, than Celcius. No biggie.

I sure as heck don't, but I'm beginning to get SOME idea...

Was as hot mid-valley. And my mom & dad's block lost power at 4pm saturday, and they haven't got it back yet.
Fritters: TT SF wibble by Frittersfritters on July 24th, 2006 08:12 am (UTC)
Shit, that's AWFUL, it's too hot and they're too old to have no power!
postrophe on July 24th, 2006 08:23 am (UTC)
They left the house about 5pm saturday to go to the mall and eat, and got back about 9pm when it started to cool down. Did the same thing straight from church sunday. The DWiPs say they'll have power back by tomorrow sometime, but it's just half a block of houses affected by 1 blown converter on 1 power pole, so they're not top priority - with 30,000 people without power this weekend.
Fritters: TT SF  Aghast by by ellonwyefritters on July 24th, 2006 07:10 pm (UTC)
Crud. I hope it's fixed soon. Hell, I hope they give some refund for the whole fridge of food everyone hs to throw out =\
postrophe on July 24th, 2006 11:31 pm (UTC)
Power back at 1pm today; they're fine now.
