Hot, Hot, Hot

What the heck?! How can we go from 62 one day to 85 two days later? Hey, I'm as D-O-N-E with this cold spring as the next gal...but I'm not sure my pasty white body can handle the shock of such a dramatic temperature swing. What on earth will I wear? Do I turn on the air conditioner? Do I need sunscreen for the 20 yard walk from my car to the office?

On a side note, why would Dave indicate that the weekend of 70's temps will be HOT instead of the prior two days of 80's temps? Perhaps he needs a small refresher in the definition of hot.

That big yellow thing in the sky is the sun Dave. You remember the sun. You even use a representation of it in your forecast graphic. See, I pointed it out for you. Anyway, the sun makes things hot. When the sun is covered by those white fluffy things (aka clouds), it's less hot.

Or maybe a quick brush up on the Fahrenheit scale.

Have you ever stuck your hand in boiling water Dave? It hurts. It's hot. You remember hot, we just talked about it. Ice (aka frozen water) is cold. Brrrr. See how water boils at 212 degrees? And freezes at 32 degrees? Since we know that boiling water is hot and frozen water is cold, that tells us that the bigger the number, the hotter it is Dave.

I dunno. Can you trust a meteorologist that doesn't know what hot means? Only in Oregon.

Only in Oregon.

LOL!! You crack me up! Wow, I was laughing lots - and then, I told my mom to read it and she was laughing REALLY hard and she says it is hilarious.
I totally agree!
Thanks for entertaining us :)
Oh, my mom asked if you actually sent that to Dave.
Anyways, that is just too funny.

Oh my gosh, I think it's just meteorologists are nuts in general. We had a huge thunderstorm the other night that NO ONE predicted. Hubby and I would just believe in the forecast that we wanted most when we lived in Portland!

I know - I just saw that tomorrow you guys are supposed to be hotter than we are!!! What?!?!?!? That is unheard of. We are enjoying our 20 degrees cooler than average temps (80-85 deg)this week! Would love a little more of your rain will heat up here and not look back soon enough!

Keep that sunscreen handy - that's for sure...and see how your mood improves when that round, orange thing in the sky appears! It's an amazing phenomenon!

Enjoy your lovely weekend!
