    How hot is it where you are?

    37C / 98.6F
    53% relative humidity

    Humidex: 50C / 122F

    (Humidex is the Canadian equivalent of the heat index, giving roughly similar numbers. I used this calculator: http://www.csgnetwork.com/canhumidexcalc.html)


    Edit: Weather Underground says the heat index (as calculated in the U.S.) is only 47C / 116.6F. Phooey. It's still stupidly hot.

    We hit 103 today. 9% humidity.

    We have set records almost every other day for the entire month. Don't think for a second that the low humidity helps. I have to drink twice as much on my rides otherwise my mouth dries up and I return home with cracked, bleeding lips.

    Edit: Just czeched, we actually got to 105.

    Hmm - I know the feeling. Our local weather has live doppler online that I track before rides. If there's a storm moving in I usually won't ride, but they can change in a heartbeat and then I miss out on a ride. It seems like I got a lot more riding done before they had the live doppler. I should probably just stop watching it.

    The high today is only supposed to hit low to mid 70's and not go higher than lower 80's through the weekend. Friggin' awesome for late July.

    I can't wait to go ride in the hills of Wisconsin tomorrow. Steep hills are so much nicer when it's cool out.

    Was a chilly 78F the other day around mid-day when polara and I started our ride. But the humidity was unusually high at 83%! That was one of the few times where my sweat didn't evaporate while riding! Could've used my wrist and head bands from tennis. And when we stopped, it was as though we had just come out of a pool, just dripping wet. I drank about 60oz of water, most of it following the ride. Had the sensation that it was coming straight back out through my pores!

    But I love summer riding weather. Yes I do!

    Wrapping up my software career. Trying to pump 25+ years of knowledge in the head of someone with 3 years experience - who has been sick 3 of 5 days. Not my problem.

    Wish I had a bike right now but I have been walking to work pretty much everyday. I know I have gain a few pounds though. Only get to eat some foods once a year and I make the most of it!

    Pizza day today.

    It's been 90 +or- a couple with the heat index at 95 +or- a couple for the past two weeks. Works for me since it's not unusual to be over 100 about now.
