The iPhone's default weather app is a filthy fucking liar, at a rate nearly matching that orange thing. Bastard has been saying for DAYS that the marine layer is coming in, and we'll drop from high 90s to mid-low 80s, with 70s to follow. Fucking heat. Fucking goddamned stupid weather app. :sweaty:

It starts thundering and raining here, so I figure I'd better hurry up and get to the store because we need some stuff.

I get all wet just getting from the door to the car, but I have to get some stuff!

So I drive the like two miles to the store, and it's dry by the time I get there. Ha!

I shop. It's not much stuff, so not too long.

And I come out of the store, and it's coming down in sheets. There are people standing under the overhang, but I'm like, "Whatever. I'm getting wet one way or another," and I go to the car. I'm soaked all the way through my clothes by the time I get my stuff in the car and the cart put away, but whatever.

There is flooding and poor visibility the whole way home, cars hydroplaning and everything.

And it's just sprinking when I get back to the house.

So I did it again. I found the most inclement possible weather, within minutes, this time in a two mile range, and managed to be out and driving around in it.

Every time. Every time, I think a ten minute storm is going to last all day, and I better go out now. And I am old enough at this point that I'm pretty confident I will never learn.

European heatwave: France hits record temperature of 44.3C - BBC News

Quote:
The previous record was 44.1C during a heatwave in 2003 that killed thousands.
Quote:
Several people are believed to have lost their lives as a result of the extreme temperatures, including two who died from suspected heatstroke in Spain.

One, a 17-year-old farm worker in Córdoba, went into convulsions after cooling down in the farm swimming pool, while an 80-year-old man died on a street in the northern city of Valladolid.

Meanwhile I've been thinking it's not that hot here.

Then I spot on the weather forecast: 22°C high today ... 32° tomorrow. The heat is waving its way here.

The 44.1:degrees:C record in France earlier today has already been beaten! 45.9:degrees:C now.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-48795264

Apparently, here in the UK it's about 22 today (which is pretty hot, but expected on hot days in June) then forecast 32 tomorrow, and back to 22 again on Sunday.

Heatwave cooks mussels in their shells on California shore | Environment | The Guardian

Quote:
... scores of dead mussels on the rocks, their shells gaping and scorched, their meats thoroughly cooked.

A record-breaking June heatwave apparently caused the largest die-off of mussels in at least 15 years at Bodega Head, a small headland on the northern California bay. And Sones received reports from other researchers of similar mass mussel deaths at various beaches across roughly 140 miles of coastline.

... the rock-bound mollusks could have been experiencing temperatures above 100F at low tide, literally roasting in their shells.

Any :ff:ers in Florida? Or is Freethought Forum blocked there?

Seems like not only the path but even the speed of the current hurricane is uncertain.

If you're in a place where it might or might not hit, I need you to take a photo of the surroundings as they are now.

This is important pun-related business.

We had record high temperatures for weekend 1 of ACL Fest (weekend before last) and record low temps for weekend 2 (last weekend).

It was 51:degrees: this morning and it's 84:degrees: now.

We soft southerners wouldn't be able to handle it.

Meanwhile this is probably a routine thing in the US.

From the 2nd link, inc a F******k video:

Quote:
Footage captured by a passerby yesterday shows an older woman ploughing through floodwater on her mobility scooter. As cars grind past and a snail’s pace, the scooter continues on in determined fashion.

Stephanie Jubb, who witnessed the scene in Sheffield and posted the video on her Facebook page with a caption reading “OMG [Oh my God]”, said: “The woman just started driving and we were like ‘she’s not gonna do it, she’s not gonna do it’ and then she just carried on. She didn’t even lift her legs up or anything.”

Jubb, who works in a pharmacy, said the woman later returned with shopping bags on board her scooter.

“She’s come back through it with her shopping bags, but we didn’t get that on tape,” Jubb told PA news agency.

She “could not believe” the clip had gone viral, adding that she felt the clip illustrated “northern spirit”.

“The people up north are quite strong. They just carry on doing their daily thing.”

Yeah it was unusually dry here. Even now we've only had a light misting


And yes, PNW folk have as many or more names for types of rain than the fabled "Innuit names for snow"

87 degrees here, today. Haven't yet had to turn on the heat, or even put on the plastic panel we use to cover the screen door to the enclosed patio we use as a family room.
