Re: Holy Heat Wave Batman!, How hot is it where you are?

Yeah, it really sucks having to pay 42 cents per kwhr, probably the highest in the Nation. With the 2nd wave of 90s-100+ heat almost over, and nearly another month of the dreaded summer knocked off, I can look forward to the cooler days of Fall ahead. Will we actually have a "winter" in Socal this year?

Re: Holy Heat Wave Batman!, How hot is it where you are?

Q: How hot has it been this Summer?
A: So hot that Don Henley thinks he could have a hit Country single about Global Warming.

You think I'm kidding, right? I'm not.

You really shouldn't run in the heat. It's dangerous and wreck havoc to the body. You'll be better off jerking one off at home to Sasha Grey.

How so? I'm super hydrated when I do it, and I only go for about 3 miles, so it's not like I'm running a marathon.

Not having A/C - only fans - makes it impossible to cool down the house. I stayed up last night to watch Colbert, and when I went to bed, the living room was down to 91 - from an earlier 97. Bleh.

Yeah, ok 3 miles is probably fine but you should look up how heat stroke happens. If your body can't dissipate heat, it can lead to organ failures. Just bad idea if you have the choice not to.

heat·stroke
a condition marked by fever and often by unconsciousness, caused by failure of the body's temperature-regulating mechanism when exposed to excessively high temperatures.

Re: Holy Heat Wave Batman!, How hot is it where you are?

This heat wave is horrible this time around. The humidity is killing me.
This morning at 6 am it was already 81. The beach is currently at 92.
This whole week it is to get hotter and hotter.

Slept in living room with AC (whole family did) because the house was just holding in too much heat and the thermometer was reading past 100.

Running (for any distance) in 100+ degree heat, with the amount of humidity we're also having n SoCal right now is very foolish. It really is stupid. Please use your common sense. You don't want to be rushed to the ER with stroke and possible brain damage, do you?

Re: Holy Heat Wave Batman!, How hot is it where you are?

Hmm... I've never had any sort of fever symptoms or dizziness from running in the crazy heat (last year, I did 5 miles in 104-degrees)... but now you guys are scaring me!

Well, it was a hundred degrees, and while it's still hot, now it's freaking pouring rain. So weird!

We had monsoon-like rain and some severe immediate flooding in Costa Mesa where I work, and a bit of rain now in Irvine where I live. Traffic was insane - so much traffic and accidents because of the sudden crazy rain. Still hot, but now crazy humid - ain't no way I'm running in this shit!

I'm not too far from Costa Mesa - used to work there. Still no rain here though. But the humidity did get worse.

Re: Holy Heat Wave Batman!, How hot is it where you are?

Just when you think it can't get any worse... we had 103 degrees with 100% humidity. Now the streets are steaming, and it's going to be a miserable, humid night, with the low predicted to 80 fuckin' degrees. Insane.
