Skip to comments.Boston to Chicago: More Than 100 Million Feel Stifling Heat
Posted on 07/18/2013 6:27:33 AM PDT by Biggirl
Plain and simple, this week may feel the worst of any week for this summer in the Northeast and parts of the Midwest. The region will be a virtual sauna bath.

Heat in July!
Why, it’s almost as if it’s July again. Why does this keep happening?!?
Meanwhile, here in North Carolina, it’s rain, rain, every day.
Man-made globalwarming, climate change, global climate disruption/Bush-Cheneys fault.
Rain, rain, you can stay.
Just make Obama go away.
We need laws to stop this insanity!
It’s pretty hot up here in NH. I’ll go outside,scrape the ice off my thermometer, and give you a reading.
Oh, I like that!
Fun to see Obama wipe sweat off his brow on Drudgereport. SARC.
Boston and Chicago. Two of the biggest liberal cesspools in the country. Enjoy!
Oh, wait...it's mid-July. Never mind.
Oh my! It is hot in July!
What we need are some common sense temperature-control laws.
And once again, the supposedly knowledgeable people are surprised at the “unexpected” surge in temperatures as the world moves past the summer solstice, and the physics of thermodynamics continues to work its logical progression.
Large land masses undergo much greater extremes of temperature change than large expanses of surface water like oceans. Temperature extremes do not happen in mid-Atlantic or mid-Pacific.
Right now Toronto feels like Atlanta in May.
What’s so stifling?
a little 90+ weather and we are having hissy fits.
For me, I actually love this stuff.
If we don't get T-storms.
We had a substantial storm yesterday afternoon. Epic Fail Lawn Service could probably mow the front late today, because it drains to the street, but there’s still standing water in the back, and I can hear the grass growing with the windows closed!
Although it’s been hot and muggy in Rochester, NY, we’re getting a much needed dry spell. We needed to dry out some as we got drenched in June and the beginning of July and had floods! Our gardens are so lush now and we’re going to get a ton of tomatoes and peppers this year!
There were some hysterical posts on the AccuWeather forum the other day...some college girl was whining about the heat in the northeast along these lines: “I’ll have you know it has been over 90 degrees in Connecticut for three consecutive days...that meets official meteorological criteria for a heat wave. That is really hot, and you could show a little compassion for people in New England.” In short order; this cry from the ‘waaaahhhhbulance’ summoned the folks from Texas and Oklahoma, and fun commenced. The poor thing was pummeled.
Good for the plants!
From Senator Reid:
Chicago,the murder capital of America..To bad I hope the criminals suffer lots..just remember though that is nothing compared to hell where you murdering thugs will go..Poor black youth that are being murdered because they won’t join a gang..and nothing done about it..
I know,it is about the heat..I have that heat an more every day of summer..Live through the one hundreds and don’t look forward to that ever day like we do..
I too have observed this possible correlation. I think a government grant could provide answers to why this happens and what we can do to solve it. I have heard the southern hemisphere has solved the July-August heat problem.
Here in Tucson too. Monsoon season...temp 102. DEEElightful!
You bet! Bhut jolokia, trinidad scorpions and such are LOVING the low 90’s in soviet Red Hampshire...
It’s Summer time...
Rumor has it, it gets warm this time of year all over our quadrant of the Globe.
God gave us air conditioning for a reason.
"Never Mind", I said approximately. (what I really said isn't repeatable)
Southern Wisconsin weighing in: I’ll take this temporary heat - we needed to dry out, too! 12” of rain BEYOND what was normal for June this season; it was brutal!
T-storms moving in Friday night, a cool and sunny weekend ahead.
This is the year my A/C went out, of course - but we’re surviving with fans and a small window unit up in the bedroom. I’m fine with the heat if I can sleep at night. :)
Out to finish mowing...started last night in the cool of the evening until the ‘skeeters chased me in!
S. GA is having the coolest summer that anyone around here can remember. Ever.
Except the corn. I drove past a corn field the other night, and jeez! I bet most of it was 8' tall or better. Good year for it, good year for hay, too. Farm animals will eat well this winter.
I lived in MS for two consecutive summers w/o any a/c. Couldn’t afford it. I’m not feeling particularly compassionate. Sorry.
Neither of my parents, who have lived in MS since childhood, grew up with any a/c. My dad’s family didn’t have any electricity at all till the 1950’s.
Nope, not particularly compassionate.
Chick needs to deal with it.
If we only had $1 Trillion more in taxes, hot summers would be a thing of the past. Scientific fact!
I need to mow my lawn too. The grass has been to wet - for a change - the past several days. We had about 2" yesterday. I may need to bail the back yard.
Light weights. Come spend a few summers in Texas.
Actually summer here in DFW has been fairly mild so far.
Ditto that for NC. Other than the past couple of days when it's been 92-ish, temps are 5-10 deg below normal.
Paper says it's "Average". They haven't blamed it on GW yet, but if this horrific (/sarc) heat keeps up, it won't be long before that story gets trotted out.
Houston in August taught me all I care to know about heat and humidity...especially humidity.
On second thought, go ahead, I'd likely not notice. :-)
Odd isn’t it in that we are supposed to be warming.
If the usurper truly cared for his hometown that he never visits, he’d sign an EO to ban July.
Yup. Even if you have a/c, if you leave your house between early May and late September, every single day is a bad hair/makeup day. That’s just a given in the deep south.
I actually meant bale, as in hay bales. Spell check won’t catch that and autocorrect will change it to bail.
This global warming is very concerning. Heck, just a few months ago it was so cold that I had to run my furnace! Now it is so hot that I have to run my AC! At this pace, we will burst into flames in just a few short months.
“Two of the biggest liberal cesspools in the country.”
LOL The stench will be overwhelming!
