Re: [Weather] Serious Heat Wave

Like Kim I love storms, as long as there isn't massive winds I can sit on the porch and watch it rain

Do you yell at kids to get off your lawn too?

I hate driving in the with the idiots who over adjust for the conditions.

Better to over compensate than under

IE: Because I get rear ended by a ditz that can't watch the road who didn't compensate for conditions (stopped traffic) and I did compensate for those same condsitions, only I and my car took damage and the person ahead of me drove off none the wiser

I'm starting to see the storm clouds come in now. It's funny how they look like white mountains in the sky. The wind is just whipping the trees around over here. Still 32 feels like 37C though but the barometer is dropping. I guess that means rain?
The wind guest at 4:09pm was 43.5 km/h.

There are watches and warnings all around the wast side of Lake Ontario. Halton - Peel is under a thunderstorm warning. I would imagine that Hamilton could get a watch or warning in an hour or so. Time to enjoy the sun before the clouds come. (well if the heat doesn't send me back in first)

Humidity is much lower today, but... it's 33 degrees outside right now, and my apartment is always hotter... I'm almost scared to go home from work. I'm looking at the very real possibility of my apartment hitting 50 degrees with humidex... Even 60 degrees isn't impossible if the humidity goes back up as high as last night.

The portable AC is expected to arrive at 8ish.

Got drenched from head to toe in under 30 seconds when the downpours started here. . . and then strolled the rest of the way home at a nice leisurely pace. Loved it . . . .others . . . not so much. I never really understood why people run to get out of the rain. ..when they are already soaked to the bone.

It takes you back to your childhood, doesn't it? I had that happen a few weeks ago while bicycling and about 6km from home. I had the presence of mind to put my phone and wallet in a ziplock bag in my knapsack (it's there for just this reason) after shopping, and while I got drenched it was a warm rain so I just kept going while laughing at the people who were already 75% soaked to the skin but still looking for a place to stop and wait it out.

Why do people look at me funny when I dance around like Gene Kelly with an umbrella?

We've got some really nice thunderstorms rolling through Woodstock. Pretty much non-stop the last hour or so. Got a pretty good downpour around 5:20pm

According to the little weather app on the Playbook, it was going to continue hot as hell today but then a thunderstorm was forecast in the 6:00 PM timeblock, but with rain < 1 mm. And I thought, sure, right, the weather will be checking its watch, and promptly at 6:00 we'll have a thunderstorm, and the amount of rain will be carefully metered at less than 1 mm!

So it starting clouding up just after 5:00, and promptly at 6:00 we had a thunderstorm!

And the rain was very brief. I'd say < 1 mm!

Congrats, EC! You're getting better! Much better!

Storm was very brief around here. And still muggy out, not time to fling open all the windows yet, but looks like the next five days or so will be fresh-air weather instead of A/C weather! Right now I've declared it official pina colada weather.

Milton finally got rain! The last few storms went right around us.

It was a great thunder and lightening show for about 45 mins before the rain hit. Lasted a good hour I'd guess. Looks like we may get a little more in a few mins too.

It's supposed to slowly cool off over the next few hours.

I'm too lazy to get out the blender so it is sangria time for me. It has gone from blue sky to dark clouds in less than half an hour, we are under a severe thunderstorm watch now, and there is a band of intense precipitation moving in from the west.

Bring it on.

The temp here in Toronto dropped from 32C to 21C in a matter of an hour... but its still humid as hell out as all that shit is evaporating because everything is so hot from the past few days of scorching heat...

It's because they've lost their child-like sense of "fun".....it's commonly referred to as 'growing up', but it's something I adamantly refuse to follow.

To quote Dave Barry, "I'll be mature when I'm dead." It's actually the title of a book.
