Dangerous heatwave starts hitting US and Canada

Discussion in 'General' started by Vee, Jul 19, 2019.


  1. Extremely hot weather has started to hit most of the United States,
    with temperatures set to peak over the weekend, meteorologists say.

    The heatwave could affect about 200 million people in major cities like New York,
    Washington and Boston in the East Coast, and the Midwest region too.

    In some places, temperatures could be close to or exceed 100F (38C).
    Parts of Canada are also being hit.

    Experts link more frequent heatwaves in recent years to climate change.
    Earlier this month, the US state of Alaska, part of which lies inside the Arctic Circle,
    registered record high temperatures.

    Which areas are hit by the latest heatwave?
    The heatwave is hitting an area stretching from the Central Plains of Colorado
    and Kansas, to the Great Lakes in the north-east.

    Consider you plants, some shade and extra water is Good

    My little sis told me its only 93 in the town I live but the heat index makes it seem way hotter. Its supposed to cool down ina few days tho. The usual advise goes for anyone outside drink a lot of water if you can. Its only dangers if you are stupid about it.

  9. 20190719_205144.jpg stay inside?....never. life doesnt stop just because it's hot.

    Over 100°f in the midwest doesn't stop us from living life, just gives us an excuse to dip our feet in the river. Running bank poles all night teaching my boys how to survive, neck deep in cool water all day. No other place I would rather be when the heat turns up.

  10. For the elderly and sick it does. or people without a/c. But I didn't specify, By all means if you're healthy and enjoy it safely do so. I used to work in 90-100 degree days doing construction labor, I drank a shit ton of water and several Gatorades throughout a day, and honestly I never felt healthier than I did doing that shit. Sweating Is very cleansing. It's those 85 degree tropical humidity days that got me. Right after a morning storm and then the blaring sun comes out like Satan's asshole. The real kicker is I was smoking almost 2 packs of camels a day and somehow was able to breathe.

    Weed totally helped me tolerate the heat.

    We have a 78 and a 74 year old joining us later today. I could only hope to know this river as well as those old timers. They teach me and my boys. Humidity is threw the roof. I work outside, live outside, weather doesn't hold us back. Gave up cigs 25 years ago

  13. When I was in India the hottest day was 48-50 C. Just once but once was enough. I was drinking fresh watermelon juice and freshly pressed sugar cane juice at every block.

  14. It's been cool and wet enough here until now that our forests aren't on fire. Usually by now they would be raging.

    That's about to change in the coming weeks, me thinks.
