I'm curious how many other people in the US south in general suffer this much from the heat in summer.. perhaps it's only people doing manual labour jobs or work outdoors who suffer as most people are inside an air conditioned office. As for me, I could never do manual labour work no matter even if the temp was below freezing... my body is just not built for that kind of strain for 8-9 hours so I have the utmost respect for people who do that kind of work in any temperature.

When it's hot I don't cry, or even feel particularly depressed; in fact I'd say rage is more common with me than sadness. It's just the way I am with any eventuality that's very adverse. I'd say this clip art from Microsoft adequately describes me when it's hot :

This is what I am like when I get hot and sweaty:



I don't get sad, I just get angry and short-tempered.

I'm going to have a good cry because it's colder than a typical March temperature in MAY. Feels just awful. Even walking outside under this thick cloud with this howling beasterly in my coat and hat I felt frozen to the bone.

And also the forecast is a 100% perfect SUICIDE forecast. No chance of average temperatures, and no chance of storms, for at least two weeks. Utterly boring. It's times like this that I wish I lived in Oklahoma, which gets proper May weather.

Yeah, I've felt rage too, like when we hit a 100 F a few years back. I was saying some rather unkind things to the "man upstairs" that afternoon, and guess what, we got hit by a pop-up thunderstorm that dropped a half inch of rain and dropped the temps down into the 70's. So sometimes it pays to be mad at the weather....lol.

Good gosh, please send some of that cold air this way. And I'll send you some of our heat in return.

I wish that happened when I raged about the weather. Problem is I rage about cold weather and therefore there are no thunderstorms. I would happily send this cold air away, anywhere. About time we tapped into a deep fetch tropical southerly from the sahara here in England. At the correct time of year! Not October or March, but May - September.


I struggle to understand why the retarded jet stream always has to plunge south in the SUMMER and north in the winter. Makes no sense. Surely the opposite should occur.

Oh yes, summer! My least favorite season, too. Oh, the heat, the humidity, the mosquitoes, the No See-um's--the tourists descending, the A/C running, running, driving up our utility bills. The stickiness and clamminess of it all--never feeling fresh and clean--even after a shower. Where's the fast-forward button to lovely Autumn of crisp air and sweaters?
