I totally understand how you feel as far as summer is concerned. If it makes you feel any better it sucks being a chef in the summer. Ovens on at 400+ degrees all day long. Grill on full blast. Steamer hissing as it steams food. Tilt skillet cooking mass quantities of food. Giant steam kettle cooking pasta. Wearing long pants, t-shirt, chef jacket, socks, shoes, and on top of all that an apron and hat to hold all of the heat in. So, like you I await fall and winter.....please hurry!!
We've had two weeks of triple digit heat indexes, and the freaks are off the leash. Have you responded to:
Woman takes a beating, but won't surrender her beer

WICHITA — She was beaten so badly she ended up with two black eyes _ but she didn't turn loose of her beer.
Her assailant, meanwhile, ended up being thrown into the Little Arkansas River.
It all unfolded at about 4 p.m. Thursday in the 400 block of West Central, police said, when a 49-year-old woman was walking along the river on a sidewalk.
She had just purchased a can of "high gravity" beer, and a 30-year-old homeless man wanted it.
He tried to take it from her, she refused, and he began beating her on the face and head. He also kicked her _ but she refused to surrender the beer.
A second homeless man, 41, saw what was going on and came to the woman's aid, police said. He pulled the attacker away from her and scuffled with him, eventually throwing him into the river next to the sidewalk.
Both the victim, who lives in north Wichita, and her assailant were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Woman accused of public urination in bizarre spree

The Associated Press
WICHITA, Kan. - Wichita police say a woman is in big trouble after after going on a bizarre crime spree earlier this week.
Police Capt. Darrell Atteberry says the woman pulled into the driveway of a home around 8:20 p.m. Wednesday, where she got out and urinated in the yard. He says she then slapped her 3-year-old son several times before driving to a second home, where she tried in vain to run over a man.
Police say from there she went to a third home and ran over a mailbox before being stopped in front of a fourth residence.
Atteberry says she was booked on preliminary charges of aggravated assault, child endangerment, child abuse, urinating in public, transporting an open container, drunken driving and possession of marijuana.
Two young children riding with her were taken into protective custody.

Then when I found out that the reason the shoulders of the highway are as wide as the highway itself was so they have a place for snow plows to pile all the snow in Winter, I kind of lost my desire to live there full time. Plus, the Michigan economy is in the toilet. No jobs anywhere up there.

Personally, I'll take 100*F over any of those single digit temps we had last winter! I just don't *do* cold!

Headed to the mtns for 4 days starting in the morning. Gonna try to beat the heat for a while. I work in an un-air-conditioned warehouse unloading a trailer or more full of bread. The bread at the bakery runs over the top of the stacks of bread. The "bread dust" falls on top of the stacks. Guess what happens when you tip a stack back on a hand truck. It's 95 degres, the fan barely works, I have sweat running in places I can't mention, and top it all off with getting covered in bread dust. I get home feeling like a cheese stick, dipped, breaded and fried! Off to the Smokies. It's hiking, elk, and trout for me and the family for a few days. If the heat does follow me, I'm jumping in a mountain creek to cool off.

I hate cold weather. I'll take it 90F and 90% humidity for 365 days. If I'm not sweating, I'm not living.
The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

I'm from Ohio as well and agree with the original poster about the extreme heat and humidity we have been experiencing lately. My favorite time of year is Fall, but I do like the change of all four seasons. I don't even mind the snow in winter, just keep the temperature at 30 and up. That single digit stuff is just nuts.
What are you complaining about sixto old buddy, its going to be 99 and high humidity here in NC today and I have to make an all day inspection on a massive standing seam metal roof at the new terminal out at the RDU Airport. The roof panel will be about 140 degrees........try that on for size.

I'll keep the heat thanks
I'll even deal with Michigan's Orange Barrel Season.
Boating season isn't ever long enough and it's been a good year so far.
Every trip out I've either had a nice size bass or muskie join me in the boat.
It would be better if the hubby wasn't working 7 days a week, and we could get out a little more, but I'll take it.

I am south of you in West Virginia, Sixto and it has been hot, humid and just plain nasty this summer. I have to work outside in it too and I can definitely understand your feelings so rant on, Brother!
On the flipside, our winter last year was the coldest and longest one we've had for a few years. It is just the extremes in the weather that I hate to deal with.
