Heat Advisory

We're under a heat advisory in W. PA. The temperature is only 91 degrees, but the heat index is over 100. People have been advised to stay inside in an air conditioned area.

I'm sure we're not alone!

No, you're not alone. It's supposed to get up to 70 degrees here. We've been advised not to go out in the sun without SPF 1 on.

70? Oh, you poor things! Are you kidding? That's cold to me! 80 is good!

Nooooo, 80 is bad! I'm okay until it gets over 75.

I inavertently poached my brain today, and I even spent most of the day in AC. Guy passed out at work from heat stroke, took him out on a stretcher. I hope he's okay.

Summer of 88 is the one I'll always remember. I was pouring steel that year.

The summer of 88 was a terrible one. I was pregnant that summer with no ac. I was not a happy camper.

Our heat index is 98 right now. Even the dogs don't want to go outside.

It was 98 yesterday, w/ high humidity. We got up at 6am this morning to move a round bale into the horse manger. It was 72 degrees and I swear the humidity was higher than it was during the previous day.
We used 4" tow straps attached in the rafters, looped under the bale and a come-along to sling and pull the 1,000# hay bale into the manger. We really didn't have to *do* anything terribly physical but we were both wringing wet when we were done.
AC and fans running everywhere we can, today.

Being from a country that has rain as one of it's main exports, what exactly IS a heat advisory?

I presume it's like a weather warning about not to go out or something?

You must have exported quite a bit of rain. It didn't rain one time during Wimbledon! Unbelievable!

I remember my uncle in Glasgow saying there was a terrible heat wave. The weather had been in the 70's that week. He was a bobby, so maybe the uniform was hot. Ach...the Scots and their wool!

It's when the ambient air becomes very difficult to breathe, because of the heat, humidity and ozone levels. Feels like someone is sitting on your chest.
