The spice must flow.
I hear ya... warm here today too... Of course my weather chart says that it feels 2 degrees hotter than it actually is... BTW... did you know that they measure temperature in the shade? Yeah... it's 100 in the shade down there. Just go outside in your skivvies and sit in the sprinkler with a large glass of cold beer.
Truth is... I spent much of this sweltering hot day being too cold. They air condition the crap out of our workspace, and I am never warm enough unless the A/C is on the fritz.
How do they figure out how hot it feels? Easy peasy, lemon squeazy. They ask around! Also, I didn't know you had so many Chinese friends! ;)
ctheokas - I figure they have some sort of numerical algorithm, which obviously has no relation to the real world. Damn theorists.As for the Chinese spambots, I think that having to delete three messages in just a few hours is a new high (or more properly, LOW). If this keeps up I will have to turn on comment moderation. *grumblegrumblegrumble*
I will attest to the fact that again, today, it is still, hot, hot, and HOT here too -and the humidity is pretty high as well. I didn't even bother watching the news and forecasts at all today -just figured what difference does the temp make anyway, since it is still just damned hot. Remind me, please of this attitude, come January or February when I probably will be inclined to bitch about it being so damned cold I just can't get warm, ya know! I love Mother Nature, yes I do. No really, I do. Lather, rinse, repeat ya know!
From the source of all knowledge, Wikipedia:The heat index (HI) is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity in an attempt to determine the human-perceived equivalent temperature — how hot it feels, termed the felt air temperature. The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, or sweating, which evaporates and carries heat away from the body. However, when the relative humidity is high, the evaporation rate is reduced, so heat is removed from the body at a lower rate causing it to retain more heat than it would in dry air. Measurements have been taken based on subjective descriptions of how hot subjects feel for a given temperature and humidity, allowing an index to be made which relates one temperature and humidity combination to another at a higher temperature in drier air.
Its been humid as hell here. I havent done anything fun yet for my vacation. I went out today and its 93 out there.
