It might actually be that hot in London. Inbetween the urban heat island effect, the humidity and the fact everyone in this country is built to absorb and trap heat, I am willing to bet there is at least 5C on whatever is reported as the actual temperature.

In Washington it just didn't stop raining,  Usually it stops in July, it didn't.  We've had a little summer heat, and then it started raining in August too, which it really doesn't do.

Better than what you poor saps are getting, but still concerning.

At least I know the thunderstorms are on their way. Should also rain overnight, which will help. The days aren't so bad, it's the nights that are killing me.

Roger stone is coming to a church about 30 mile from my house. it's Pastor Greg Locke's church. You may have been unfortunate enough to have seen him on FB or some other interweb. He was recently noted for threatening "Iím going to take these work boots and Iím going to kick your teeth down your throat" to a Dunkin Donuts employee for telling him to wear a mask in his store. Which he then bragged about on his youtube.

It's 95F in London. Everything is horrible and I want to die in a freezer.

But hey, at least itís a wet heat.

That sounds like living in an armpit, Cain. Hope it cools down a bit!


My district is doing distance learning for the foreseeable future and I'll still be getting work, so now I have to make a work station in my tiny house. I found some shelves on Craigslist so I'll be able to use my vanity as a desk, at least.

Some tree trimming service was working its way down the back alley, and it seems they snagged an overhead fiber optic line.  It's broken at the utility pole where my house is connected.

Since my internet hasn't gone out, I'm guessing that:

The connection to the head-end is somewhere to the west.
Several of the neighbors to the east will soon be very pissed, if they aren't already.
I'm likely to have a brief outage sometime in the next few days, when the repair guys show up.

I'm so glad Josh Ellis mentioned that on Facebook. He lives in a goddamn desert and he finds London's heatwave unbearable. So it's not just me here, not liking the heat like I do, it really is that bad.

That sounds like living in an armpit, Cain. Hope it cools down a bit!

Apparently today will be the last of the worst of it. Tomorrow will drop below 30C and the thunderstorms will properly hit, then on Friday it will be about 25C during the day. After that, it's back to 22C days and 15C nights.

Cain, the waiting room is full.

LOOKS like all bots, but I didn't want to zap any because I'm not entirely certain.

Good call, they were all bots. I watched them piling up but it was too hot to do anything

Man. I'm feeling so thirsty for an -ism, lately!
Just mentally exhausted from the Shit Going On, and slogging through nuance and a lack of -ism fueled certainty.

It looks so tempting.  I see folks everywhere drinking their curriculum, and dining on channels, and they seem so satisfied...

Was hung mung ecstatic or despondent as he slapped his ass?  I used to be the former, but am currently feeling the latter.

Please advise.
