My girlfriend and I came out of the grocery store the other day and the street clock/thermometer said it was 42 degrees. We measure our temperature in celsius. When you make the conversion to fahrenheit it was 107.6 degrees.
I've always been told that the temperature gauges on the street are always hotter than it really is because the sun bouncing off the concrete/asphalt makes the reading hotter. Don't know if it's true but let's say it affects the reading by 5 degrees. If that's the case then it was still 102.6 when we came out.
Then I found a picture on a friends facebook that lives here in our city. She had the following picture that her friend had taken at 5:00 p.m. on a recent afternoon in a city about 50 miles away.
It's so hot it makes you do crazy things.
Like taking 2-3 cold water only showers during the day.
Like sleeping with no covers on and as many fans pointing at your body as possible......and still waking up during the night sweating.
Like going to the neighborhood pool at 7:30 at night because it's still 93 degrees outside and 90 degrees inside your house.
Like eating your meals buck naked.
(Thankfully, so far, only the 3 year old is eating completely naked.)
