Stifling States of America: Heat Wave!

The next few days are bringing some serious heat to large portions of the country, including here in the DC area where the heat index on Friday is expected to climb to 116 freaking degrees.

So aside from being hot, how is the heat wave affecting you? How are you going to be spending your weekend?

re: Stifling States of America: Heat Wave!

Yeah i've been hearing that this might be the worst heat wave since the 1930's around here. I had 99 degrees in the back yard today. It says it might be 105 tomorrow, with the heat index feeling like about 111 degrees. That's gonna be pretty bad here because the humidity is so freaking high. You are almost walking around in a fog now the last few days.

Actually for serious, if you're going to drink on that camping trip make sure you don't pass out in the sun. Talk about a sucky way to die.

Re: Stifling States of America: Heat Wave!

I have to work Fri-Sun, but thankfully it will be indoors in air conditioned grocery stores. And when I won't be working, I'll be indoors elsewhere in places with a/c. The only time I'm planning on spending outdoors this weekend is the time it'll take to walk from buildings to my car lol. This heat is gonna suck.

Re: Stifling States of America: Heat Wave!

Its nasty here in west Michigan. The air outside this morning is like my grandmas closet.
I took a vacation day tomorrow just to dodge the heat at work.

Re: Stifling States of America: Heat Wave!

Don't be stupid, cancel the camping trip. Keep yourself inside and turn up the air conditioner.

This. Now is not the time to relive the lives of our ancestors. AC was invented and popularized for one reason...IT WORKS!! Stick to it. The outdoors will still be there later when it is cooler I promise.

Re: Stifling States of America: Heat Wave!

I have to work at a farmer's market Sat. from 6:30 - 12:30. I'll be in the shade and, hopefully, it will be early enough so that I avoid the most brutal stuff. Other than that, it's inside and AC cranking.

As for your camping trip, just to reiterate what the others said - if you can reschedule, do so. Don't drink alchohol to cool yourself off. Wear a cap of some type, keep your head cool as you can (wet rag, etc.). Water, water, water and more water.

Re: Stifling States of America: Heat Wave!

In the US, from 1979 - 2006, only extreme cold has killed more people than extreme heat. Extreme heat has killed more people than flooding, lightning, tornadoes & hurricanes combined.
