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.

EARTH, HAVE WE MADE YOU MAD?

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!
