Summer heat in DC

Post by LastLegend » Sat Jun 11, 2011 3:58 pm

It's driving me crazy. I just want to beat someone up sometimes.

It's nauseating. I'm a few miles down the road in Virginia and everything smells swampy. I'm concerned for elderly and sick people, or the poor who can't escape the heat or stay hydrated.

... and cooling stations are not opened and the Metro cars are undercooled and 1/20 of the Metro cars supposedly have no air conditioning at all - but in the past several days I've only found 1 car that had air conditioning working so that 1/20 number reported on the news surely isn't correct. This city closed down before air conditioning became commonplace.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."

No relief yet here in North Carolina either. It is not usually this hot until late July through August.
