What’s the opposite of a heat wave?

July 26, 2010

Do you remember back in the years before 2010, when it would be hotter than 90 degrees for three days a row and it would constitute this miserable thing called a “heat wave?”

What is it called if you’re in the middle of a summer where there haven’t been three consecutive days below 90 degrees?

Yesterday on the drive back from LBI to DC my car thermometer was comfortably on 102° — hitting occasional peaks of 103 and even 104.

It’s too hot for the beach; too hot to lose power in a storm and be lost without AC. It’s too hot to be outside even for a moment, and the metro has become physically unbearable.


Please, cool it, will you?

This week we have highs only in the upper 80s and low 90s, a huge break. It will feel SO COOL! I CAN’T WAIT!
