Was 100+ in Omaha today..and of course, our A/C stopped working.  Ya know how you're supposed to hose off the unit each spring?  Yeah, I never do that.  So I gave it a good hosing and it started working again.  Just like a woman.

Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

Chicago is forecast for 101 F, which would be the hottest day in seven years. Then again we've been so unusually warm this year it may not feel as hot as it would in another year.

No, and we never did, but we remove it each fall and reinstall it each spring (as we want to reinstall the window and I doubt than A/C would like the snowstorms and the minuses cold), so, it's perhaps not needed?

Probably not.  The issue with mine is, I'm assuming, all the dead leaves and other plant matter clogging up the vents and what not.  It's a central unit, so bringing it in really isn't an option.  I supppose I could get a cover for it (or remeber to hose it off each year).

We hit a record high today at Reagan National: 104 degrees, beating by 3 degrees the old record set in 1934.  Add the humidity, and the heat index was near 115 degrees.  And with the clock nearing 9pm, it is still 98 degrees.

Long live the public service. But it's like 35c in my room, inside, right now. This country sucks in the summer.

Yeah... even if you live far enough north to avoid the heat, you have to deal with mosquitos. And in Vancouver, you get rain. :/

It's pretty hot these days. I can't imagine how much worse it is in the US right now.

By far up north, surely you don't mean northern Ontario right? Because it's hot up here.

Well, what about Nunavut? I'm sure the bugs're bad there but it's not too hot. Northern Ontario is in that in-between zone that Max was talking about. Hot and skeeters! Sad

Neusiedl am See in Burgenland has just broken the June record for Austria:

37.4C (ca. 100F)

The old record for June was in the year 2000.

The high today is 106 F, same as yesterday.  Humidity is 38% last I checked, so it should feel about 120 F.  To all of my fellow southerners, stay inside today!  People die in this kind of heat.

Vienna's 1st district measuring station even beat that officially with 37.7C ...

What is 'coconut water' Tweed is talking about?

Here it is only averaging I guess around 85-90 for highs lately - yes it is rainy season now. We had our couple of months of high-90s-to-100 in April and May.  It is still a bit hot/sticky sometimes but really not bad.

It's a clear liquid found inside young coconuts. High potassium/antioxidant/mineral content, low carbs/calories/sodium & no fat.

Really?  They sell that all over the place in the streets in Bangkok.  I had no idea you could buy that fresh in the USA.  I also thought it had a lot of fat - and surely it must contain loads of sugar as its very sweet.

+ an air quality alert.  I like to go exert myself outside just for kicks.  pretend I am a pitcher on the old baking artificial turf of 80s-yesterday, burned feet, thermometers reading 140, Barry Larkin doubling off me to left-center.

It just hit 105F here.  Another degree higher and we could tie our long-time record, set in 1913 and 1918.

I was always under the impression it's suppose to get cooler as you move closer to a pole. Apparently I was mistaken, cause I'm in Carolina an it's a good 10 degrees hotter than Florida.
