Summer all over again?

Tuesday, October 9, 2007

UPDATE: After hearing my battle cry, mother nature decided to give us some cooler weather. I woke up this morning to temps in the 50s. Right now its a perfect 75-degrees outside.


WTF is up with the weather? Seriously. It's hot as hell today and Columbus Day felt more like Labor Day outside. It was awful.

I feel like Fall teased us with a brief appearance, decided she wasn't ready to go on, pranced her little ass off stage and threw summer back on. This heat is ridiculous. Today and yesterday marks the first time in Baltimore history that temperatures have reached above 90-degrees on consecutive days in October.

I wish mother nature would get herself together and act like it's October. Where are the cool nights and autumn-colored leaves? I just bought three new argyle sweaters (one deep plum, one in navy and one in auburn) and a new fall jacket to wear before it gets really cold and I have to break out that damn North Face.

I packed away my shorts and most of my short-sleeved polo shirts already. I am not prepared for this.

Damn global warming.

been having that same problem. Part of my job requires me to walk two blocks to the courthouse. I'm not sayin I'm lazy, but if I wouldn't look that way by driving 2/10 of a mile...

That Dude Right There said...

Yep, i'll stay my ass in Atlanta where I can wear my short sleeve polos year round.

I haven't worn a coat since I moved back to ATL from Chicago.

I hate cold, so I'm not looking forward to the winter, but I sure as heck could use turning off my air conditioner at night to sleep to the sweet sounds of the ghetto jobless trash that loiter in front of my apartment building. Oh...NYC in fall... LOL

It's here! My sinuses are acting a fool cuz of this weather. This morning was 42...yes, fall - she's here.

Well we're supposed to get a cooldown in the area soon, but I guess time will tell if it actually lasts.

I can just picture Halloween being 90 degrees, candy meltin everywhere. LOL

M-Dubb - I wouldn't have blamed you in that heat. Today is nice hear, so enjoy your walk.

TDRT - I love my coats. I couldn't live in a place where I can't experience four distinct and separate seasons.

Cocoa - Not jobless trash tho...damn.

Soldier - I feel your pain. Same thing is happening here too.

Darius - That bitch has arrived indeed.

D.Lavar - Not melted candy tho..lol.

Mr. Jones I feel your pain. It is awfully hot here and its October. Then last night we had that semi-severe storm in my neighborhood. Now the sun is back out. I refuse to wear short sleeve button up shirts to my job...looks to blue collar and tacky. But something needs to give really soon, miss nature is not going to jeopardize my class, forcing me to short sleeve collar shirts.

This inconsistent weather...she must be bleeding.

Mr. Jones said...

Yea...it's 50-degrees, overcast and windy right now. Not a good look.
