Global warming alert. I'm surprised most of us didn't roast. I'm surprised I didn't. I hopped off the city bus at the bus stop RIGHT ACROSS FROM MY HOUSE and when I arrived to my house, I was literally sweating buckets.
Anyone want to move to the North Pole with me? Maybe Santa Claus will feel more grateful for cold weather if he dares to fly over to California WAY before Christmas time.=]

So city workers can't work when it is 86 degrees indoors but they can go out to the beach or go shopping when it is 100 outside? Maybe the city can get some electric fans for the employees so they can continue to do their jobs.

...it's 86*, so go out where it's 111*, so you can find a place that's 86* in order to cool off!!!

Did I get that right?

You can leave and go to the beach, mall, library or in my case home. All of these places have AC as long as there are no power outages.

City of LA was telling people to go to various places to cool off, including city libraries. Apparantly they forgot that they closed city libraries every Monday due to budget cuts. Ca-razy!

We're all going to spontaniously combust.

It was 115!, in Bell. This day reminded me of that twilight zone episode.

The sun was close to the earth and the paint on the canvas was literally melting and dripping off.

108 - it about time we had a real summer this year, even if it only lasts 2 days. I love some hot weather!

Long Beach, suffering from a revised 18 trillion dollar deficit, was unable to afford a maximum temperature of 113 and had to settle for the cheaper-priced 100 degrees instead. "Times are tough," mayor Bob Foster explained to an audience of angry residents, "and you'll just have to get by with it. Be thankful: some other cities could only afford 70 or 80 degrees, and they had to lay off firefighters, librarians and police officers in order to do it. So, quit complaining or I will cancel the council meeting and clear the room."

It was so hot today that socal melted into a huge sea of saturated fat, clogging the entire storm drain system. Emergency bypass storm drains are to be installed around the clogged areas as soon as some specialists are located and a way is found to pay them.

Think about being thousands of miles away from home, wearing 50 pounds of equipment, in 120 degree heat, while people are trying to kill you.

Sure makes all the whining about 108 in the South Bay seem trivial when our troops would love to be sitting on a beach instead of in the middle east.
