    Good grief

    Look at this. The temp is no big deal, but look at that humidity. 61% Cripes!!! I practically need to ride with a wedge buster just to cut through the humidity.

    I had heard that Weatherbug got cleaned up and wasn't fully of the "spyware" crapola anywhere.

    I'm not saying I'm willing to trust it...but I had heard that (from reputable sources).

    It still hits hot on all the spyware, adware, malware programs. I wouldn't risk it.

    OK....interesting to know. Like I said...that didn't mean I was trusting it...only that I hard heard it. I just run a quick check on www.wudnerground.com when I want a weather check.

    Sounds like the same attitude I hear from people who don't run anti-virus software because they've never had a virus.

    I wonder if OP is one of those too.

    I don't usually run AV when using Windows, but I'll periodicly run a virus scan using Trend Micro's house call. Have yet to get a virus The rest of the time I'm on Linux, so no AV is needed

    It's 82 degrees F here with 72% humidity. Apparently, it's going to get hotter.

    Crap, I hate humidity and I'm coming to Omaha on Thursday.
    Looks like the forecast says it'll be even hotter in a couple of days.

    First pic in the shade, 3:30pm.
    Second pic, minutes later, in full sun (and just for grins ).

    Not such an unreasonable day. Hot, for sure, but not particularly humid.

    Waahhh!!!!

    It's SOOOO HOT! It's SOOOOO HUMID!!!

    Waahhh!!!!

    Sweet Jeebus, people. It's like you just landed in the US.

    It's August. It's supposed to be hot and humid.

    Get a vodka & lemonade or a gin & tonic and forget those weather worries.



    I can't wait until the middle of January when people start griping about how freakin' cold it is. Pansies.

    You know, I'm always turned off by the thought of getting drunk when its hot as hell out. Then i get drunk anyways and the heat is the furthest thing from my mind.

    Pansies should be planted in fall or early spring. Middle of January is asking for problems. And don't forget that pansies are nitrogen feeders and respond well to a top dressing of blood meal.
