In Which I Believe This Weather Completely Sucks

a.k.a “In Which I Stole The Naming Convention for This Post from here: http://www.titian-haired.org/gournal/

I live in Washington State, a ways south of Seattle; close enough to take out-of-town visitors for a trip up there without too much hassle; far enough away that we don’t get to benefit from the water being right there, thus keeping temperatures about 5-10 degrees cooler.

Everyone in the area is bitching incessantly about the heat. Now, it’s my turn.

I refrained from complaining about it for as long as I could, because we had a pretty shitty winter. We had more snow this winter than I can ever remember having and I’ve lived up here my whole life. It was cool for a day or two, then I was done. D-O-N-E. I had to burn vacation days because I couldn’t get my little Fit out of my driveway. Silver lining: I named my car Skee Lo, because I Wish it was a little bit taller. A 64 Impala would be nice, too. Also, when I did actually drive to work, I learned they only plowed the driveway part and not the stalls, which got me stuck.

But the 7-day forecast for Seattle, which is 5-10 degrees F cooler than where I’m at inland, is the following:

97?! 99?! 98?! Are you freakin' kidding me?!??!!!! (via komonews.com)

UPDATE: Seattle’s new forecast is 101 & where I’m at is supposed to be 103 with nearly 80% humidity. I want to live in my reach-in freezer for the next few days.

My mom said she’d heard on the news that, because the majority of the population here is not used to this kind of weather and because most buildings aren’t outfitted to deal with this weather, the upper-90s to lower-100s that we’ll be experiencing (I cannot believe I just typed that) will feel, to us, like 125 in Las Vegas. Only we don’t have the Luxor or Circus Circus (or whatever, I’ve never been) to go gamble our lives away in. We have tribal casinos that have amazing concerts with headliners such as Billy Ray Cyrus. Yuck.

I conclude my diatribe by pleading with God, Mother Nature, whoever, anyone, everyone, to end this shit. I’m sorry for bitching about the cold. This whole “You wanted warm? I got yer warm right here” attitude is really mean and uncalled for. I’m not a fan.

I’m sick and tired of feeling like Whitney Houston’s upper lip everywhere except work and my car.

Enough is enough.

  1. dude! you get NO sympathy from this location. it’s hot as ballz here too! what do they mean, “it will feel like 125?”

    • I wasn’t looking for any sympathy. I was venting. It means, that because we’re not accustomed to heat this extreme, that 105 with 60% humidity would feel to us, like 125 would feel to a Las Vegas native. It’s all about relativity.
