Default Yesterday was the hottest day ever measured in my country

And today, that record has been broken already. 40,4 degrees C (105 degrees F) in some places.

When are we all gonna die already.

the other day, this one fellah who will remain unnamed told me the latest theory on the extinction of the dinosaurs, how fragments of the asteroid shot back up into the atmosphere upon impact and then rained back down in a fiery firmamental deluge, incinerating all lyfe.

i was pretty stoked so i ran upstairs and told my mom. she frowned and said "but what about the humans? how did they survive?"

It’s not that bad here right now, 79...but last week it was over 100 for a day, and high 90s. We’re trying to get a lot of crap done outside since it’s nice out...we moved back to Ohio two years ago and bought a 5 acre property near Columbus. 1 acre of it is grass... it’s a lot of work, but fun work.

No chiggers yet but ticks and mosquitoes are horrible. The ticks are bad in our woods and trails and our dog is always bringing them in the house. Mosquitos are the worst though, even in the morning we get bit. We have some swampy areas and a lot of pine trees that they like. Plus our gutters are clogged bad with pine needles so they’re prob laying eggs there.

it's always that hot in texas during the summer, but it's never humid so it feels more like a cool 90-something. had some heat index in chicago of 105 the other day though so it was humid, too.

we were were at our garden and i was squatting down under a tree to try and cool down but behind my knees was soaking wet but standing up was too much effort and i had no water to drink. i would have cried had we not just been down the street from our pad. i was this || close to drinking water from the rain barrel.

Wow, must be great to have so much land...it's a bit of a pipe dream for us.

We've been considering moving to the country on and off, for a long time, but anything we can afford here, is basically in a flood zone, steeply sloping, or hours away from civilisation on small isolated roads.

We lived through some brutal heat waves in Sydney. Not sad to see the back of them.

But for the first time ever here in my home town I felt too hot to sleep, over the summer...

this summer has been pretty intense. my parents house was just hit by a tornado (in massachusetts) and it smashed the huge tree out in front through the roof. (never had a tornado there in the 40 years they've lived there)

and now the netherlands is 40,4C.

and some trains in america have been halted for periods of time because the tracks are too hot. and wildfires in arizona. surely california ones increasing soon.

and babies born today will probably look back on these times as quaint and innocent

but enough about that, i heard there will be a lot of marvel movies coming out

How did you do that? What is this arch-mage wizardry you yield with such skill?

My in-laws in Paris checked themselves into a hotel, no AC at home, and Paris managed over 42 C. Germany reached 40 C, my old workplace closed down when the AC went to shit. And my mom lives in Austria, the "cold" country, and enjoys 38 C currently. Alaska melts under record heat.
It was hot as shit in Chicago last week, too, and then I hear someone getting out of a SUV arguing with his wife that this is completely normal because hey, in 1916, that one time, it was even hotter in Chicago.

It would blow my mind if we hadn't read about this happening for 2 decades now. We deserve to die! Good thing is, we will. Well not us, of course, but millions of people who live in regions that will turn into dried out land where nothing grows any longer. And we will look the other way when millions more should migrate, because hey, not our problem that they starve. We got problems, too, not enough AC in buildings!

It was always a dream of our’s too! It’s pricey to get land here too, we passed on newer houses with more upgrades to get the land. I love it, no neighbors... no hoa. I can work on my garden in my nightgown without having to worry about neighbors.
