    We hit 98 in central Va. yesterday. Went to Marty Stuart / Steve Miller concert last night (outdoor venue). They moved the start time 1 hour so by the time everyone arrived the venue was mostly in the shade.. picked a great spot for our chairs and had a breeze all evening..

    Even though temps have been in the 90's all week, I picked up a brand new snow shovel at the Goodwill this week for $5. Gotta get em when you see em.

    It's all relative.......here, around 10% relative. Seriously though, that 108 heat index was only 1 day. Compare that to a 4 day weekend back east.

    Here's the thing: the humidity east of the Rockies moderates temperatures, and limits them to the upper 90s during a heat wave. If all that humidity was to evaporate, it would *BE* 110, 115, 120 in places like NYC, Philly and DC during a heat wave. One way or the other, everyone feels the heat. I personally prefer the way in which my clothes aren't dripping with sweat when I get home.

    Every winter jacket I've purchased since the late '80s has been purchased in the spring, when I got a smokin' deal on them.

    Newfoundland, Canada - got 70 centremeters of snow on the weekend. Shut the city down. Military in a recovery plan.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    It was 39F yesterday morning. Not as cold this morning. Don't think I've ever seen iguanas around my neighborhood but I do see them often around canals (and roadkill).

    I Denmark there hasn't been one snowflake yet, only rain, hardly a single night with frost.
    It has been a record year. Mud everywhere.

    They showed it on the news last night. Iguanas in Florida freezing stiff and falling out of the trees.

    Right, people think they're dead but once they warm up a little they wake up. It's common down here. When I had mango trees I'd see 'em in my yard. All I see now are cats, possums, ducks, and ibis. And anoly lizards.
