I'm gonna have to get some sort of shade to work under. I'm not a weenie when it comes to the heat and I'm already bowing out with this sweltering heatwave.
I've got NINE hours of mowing to do today.
Gonna smoke an extra joint and bring a few extra Capri Suns in my cooler.
I try to cover myself like desert dwellers do. Long sleeves, long pants. Big wide hat.

Oh shoot! Tell me we're not reprising the great weenie debate of 2019..?!
The aridic nomads had generations to figure out what works when it's stinkin' hot. 'Course, you got you some humidity to contend with,too...
Following their lead is a good thing, so long as that imitation doesn't include sexually assaulting goats.

'Zackly!!!
And the sooner folx realize that the planet's cycles are measured in eons, the sooner we descendents of feces-slinging apes can get back to the business of crapping in our collective nest...
It's what we don't truly know that frightens the monkeys, and makes for agenda-building fodder.

91°/98° (actual/heat index) today, followed by a blissful cooling break for two glorious days in the upper-mid-80s! Woot-woot!!!
Then back into the 90s for the foreseeable future...

While we long for some "heat" from Mother Nature in December thru April or so up here, we aren't dealing with withering heat like you southern folks are getting already.

Glad I didn't pull up roots a few years back and complete a move south, when I retired from the workplace.

The main reason on my doing a skoolie now is to create an escape vehicle and become a temporary "Snowbird" when temps fall into the uncomfortable zone around here.

Guess its better to be labeled a snowbird than a snowflake in today's PC Society though...

BTW & FYI: I hear that the weather chat on Marc's build thread is pending deletion, y'all... (since it's still recipient of the current off-topic subject)

Global warming, wait the record was set over 100 years ago, so how much hotter is it?

hmph! We called 'em, "seasons," or "weather," when we were kids...Don't know nothing about no records here in Tejas. What I DO know is it's been in the low 90s, with heat indices in the mid- to upper-90s.
I'm thinking of calling it the renal workout, from all the water I'm guzzling!

I almost hate to say it...But I am kinda missing New Hamsha's Spring weather...
Why, that's just crazy talk! The Bible assures us that Creation took place considerably more recently than that! Despite what the gawdless, humanistic, and sexually liberated scientific community would try to gull you into believing with their made-up timeline!
(Oh wait... isn't the aforementioned tome allegorical in nature, a moderately recent result from the primitives' venerable oral tradition..?)
Does Humanity effect changes in our local biome? You betcha. Ask the Dodos or the Carrier Pigeons. Oh, wait... You can't! People hunted them, and countless piles of other species, into extinction! Short-term gain, or even need, outweighs any potential, pesky resultant exigencies.
Have we scarred the planet? Absolutely! I would point to any metropolitan area... Nature is glorious, and our planet is a living, breathing, and growing macro-organism capable of healing itself of whatever hurts and indignities we've inflicted on it. Just ask the Mayans how their pyramids are fairing. Whups, ya can't! They were extincted, too...
That's a problem I see with our genetic and cultural heritage. Being binocularly gifted and equipped with opposable thumbs, we are deadly accurate when it comes to slinging sh1t.
If homo Sapiens sapiens (no pretension in that name!) hadn't won out over the better designed and sturdier Neanderthal by virtue of adaptability, this would be a considerably different world.
Still, premise remains: Is human activity responsible for changes in the weather? Even at this late date, we're a pretty pretentious populace for a puny species ill-equipped to survive, unsupported, in the wild.
We are convinced we are the absolute acme of evolution. Without firesticks, or even fire, coyotes would be convinced we're delicious. Easy prey, even lacking any mail order contrived contraptions from Acme.
Sure, we effect our environs. History is rife with examples of how thoughtless, brutal, cruel, and impolite homo Sapiens are. Once we had to content our destructive natures with midden piles, driving herds of herbivores off cliffs, and killing one another face to face and hand to hand.
With all the inherent efficacy of the Industrial Revolution, bringing unknown (and often not really needed) modern design and convience, we can now fling those feces on a global scale...
Impacts? Yes, some, surely.
Solely responsible? I am dubious.

So far in Philadelphia it's been either 80 or raining. I can't seem to catch enough of a break to do any outside work. Got a solar panel and some other work to do on the roof and it was almost unbearably hot up there last time around.
