Whew!! It is mighty hot outside, and you probably are wondering where I got the title of this post from. Well, when I was a little kid I watched a show called Sesame Street, and one episode had them singing about the weather. It popped up in my head so I decided to go ahead and write about it.
Let me make this clear…I love hot weather!!! Especially when I can go swimming, which is one of my favorite things to do. Today however, I won’t be able to go 😦 . But don’t cry for me Argentina because I will be fine. Although it doesn’t help to be on the bus and seeing people on there way to a local pool. Such a teaser!!!
Right now the temperature outside is 103 degrees Fahrenheit! Although the real feel temperature is 111 degrees. Here are some of the cities that have hit or surpassed their temperature records for today: June 29,2012.
“During the next couple of days, temperatures are forecast to reach 100 degrees or higher once again in the central and southern Plains to the Ohio Valley. However, even areas in the central and southern Appalachians and the coastal plain in the South and mid-Atlantic will do the same.
Columbia, S.C. has broken their all-time record high of 107 degrees set on multiple dates. During Friday afternoon, temperatures reached at least 108 degrees.
During Friday afternoon, Nashville has at least equaled its all-time record high of 107 degrees set in 1952. Nearby in Smyrna, Tenn. the temperature has reached at least 113 degrees
Charlotte, N.C., is also on track to reach its all-time record high of 104 degrees set in 1954 and tied in 2007.
Washington, D.C., broke its June record of 102 set in 2011, when the temperature reached at least 103 degrees Friday afternoon. The all-time record high is 106 degrees set on July 20, 1930.
Temperatures Friday afternoon inched close to the all-time record of 108 degrees at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor“.
I am curious if it is going to get any hotter today, but we’ll have to see. I am glad to be somewhere that has A/C which isn’t something I would normally say. But after being out in this heat getting to bus stops and then waiting for the bus I am perfectly fine with it. Plus its not icebox cold, just cool enough to be rather comfortable.
Thankfully, I do have plenty to drink as well so that makes things better. A lot better.
So, is there anybody else that likes this weather as well? Let me know I would love to hear from you.
I hope you all be safe.
