watching, hearing, reading
worrying and even writing about what's happening in the middle east..
i may or may not post it here.
so much has already been said about this crisis. and yet so little has been done..

i'm at work
it's only 9:32 and the temperature outside is already 24 degrees and it could go up to 33 or 34 this afternoon.
the airco at the office might bring that down to about 25. i do need to go outside a lot though, to breathe in some fresh air. if i don't, i'll have a headache within the hour.

i guess for some of you even 34°c (93.2°f) isn't that hot, but over here we're not really used to that.

Same here in the UK. Too hot for me - the best bit is when I get in the car as at least there I have air conditioning.

As the papers here tend to say "coo wot a scorcher"

i thought it'd be in my blood to tolerate the heat...but no, the summer heat is probably the only reason i'm kinda glad i'm nocturnal when i get my sleep... :P

oh how I wish it was 92 degrees here, but we've been getting around 105, to 108 lately....lol

yea...the middle east stuff is crazy...all I can say is, it's either now or later. I am sick of Racical Islamic supporting countries and organizations and I support Israel completely for saying "ENOUGH" and kicking the shit out of radical islam.

34 is hot. How's the humidity ?
Jul. 19th, 2006 11:09 pm (UTC)
i had to check that. it was 52% today. around 75% would be normal..

That's definitly not dry. I find humidity is just as important as temperature as far as comfort is concerned.Here ,living by the Great Lakes in summer brings lots of humidity and discomfort along with thunderstorms.You just can't win!

In Dallas the past week, the high has ranged between 100f to 105f. If I have not forgotten what I learned in school 25 years ago, that is around 40c. Yesterday, Dallas woke up to a low temperature of 87f!

It is sad, but I was taught in school in the 70's that the US was converting to metric. We were taught conversions. But, it never seemed to happen. Now, you never hear about it. The metric system is something the "rest of the world" uses.

And please do not get me started on dates. I think Day/Month/year makes the most sense, and I use dates that way. But I am a minority and most official forms use Month-Day-Year.

oh well.
