It’s getting hot in here! No, literally, it’s friggen hot as hell up in this joint. Have you been sweating your buns off too? Well, you’re not going crazy, CNN has reported that the past 12 months have been the hottest EVER recorded since 1895 when record-keeping began. CNN reports, “The National Climatic Data Center, which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported that in the last half of June, 170 all-time temperature records were matched or smashed in cities across the lower 48 states. The U.S. State Climate Extremes Committee also is reviewing whether 113-degree temperatures in South Carolina and 112-degree recordings in Georgia qualify as all-time records in those two states.” School should be canceled and we should have “extreme heat” days off from work! Who am I kidding? I freeze my butt off at work! Why is it impossible for buildings to find a “comfortable” temperature? Anyone?
Anyway, with this being my third year living in the same apartment, my boyfriend just convinced me to get an air conditioner for the living room. Since Con Ed likes to steal all my money, I have refused in the past, but wow, it’s ridiculously hot so I caved. I guess it’s about time since we’re all going to faint from heat exhaustion with this heat wave. How have you been handling the heat?
