Global Warming - Yikes

Permanent Linkby Jack on Mon Jun 13, 2011 11:22 pm

Yikes. Just watching the local news...remarkably high temperatures across Texas. There was a discussion of heat bursts, with a NIGHT TIME increase from 85 to 102 at 12:22 AM in Kansas City.

Cid's right. We're not ready for global warming and it's hitting now and hitting hard.

Heat bursts can really be intense. Being meteorologists we of course have a good wx station in our yard. My husband always gets excited when there's a heat burst. I don't like them.

I'm in the camp with you and Cid about climate change, for the record. Live now.

Good find, Jack. Not being a meteorologist, I had never heard of heat bursts before. Weird stuff.
