Brutal Heat Wave Coming?

First super summer heat wave predicted; plan accordingly!

Weather forecasters are predicting our first long-term summer heat wave starting this Monday, with temperatures that will feel well over 100 degrees by mid to late in the week! This heat spell looks like it will last over 10 days (with a moderate one-day break somewhere in there).

Like I mentioned during our no-so-bad heat advisory last week, please make sure that any elderly friends or family members are not over-exerting themselves. It’s a no-brainer to be prepared and prevent any unnecessary medical emergencies.

I realize that there are other posts on here regarding Columbian Towers, but this appears to be a more appropriate place right now. Since the heat wave bagan this week, the management at Columbian Towers has TURNED OFF the air conditioners in the community room. They did this during the last heat wave, and they did it again this time. I had to go pick up my aunt and bring her to my house so she could stay cool. I’d gladly buy her an air conditioner, but the power in her apt trips every time she turns hers on and nobody will fix the outlet. But that’s another story. The story now is that there is a very, very dangerous situation existing in that building. The spitefulness of management can cause harm to seniors in need of relief right now. All over the news you see people helping others now. But not in Columbian Towers. The reign of terror against the seniors there continues to go unchecked. When will city officials get involved? When will her councilwoman stand up for the residents? When will the Board of Health crack down on him? This is serious, folks.Something has to be done. So, Mr. 411, why not take a walk over to Columbian Towers, go into the community room, and see for yourself what is going on? You can report about the heatwave as much as you want, but why not try to help someone in the process…

From someone who spends a lot of time outdoors, thanks 411 for the warning… Prefer cool or cold or freezing conditions over the kind we’ll experience Thursday and Friday.

I worked outside all of my working life and give me the cold any day. I have spoken to others who have worked outside and they mostly feel the same way. I’m sure that people argue the pro’s and con’s of both temperature conditions but till you spend a few years working under both of those conditions you really don’t know.

There is nothing hotter then climbing on steel or working on a blacktop surface in the dog days of summer. There is no shade to hide in or any place to cool off, the only shade is in your helpers shadow and hopefully a fat helper. The dipshits that take off their shirt in the sun are prime targets for skin cancer, tools and equipment are to hot to touch. Give me a any day when the temp. is below 40 and i’m a happy camper.
There is the old saying i can always put warmer clothes on but i can only take so much off.[quote comment=”208866″]escaped 68 your waisting your time..your talking to the entitled…milk fed cupcakes. the down side of working in the cold is artihartis..longshoremen truckdrivers police .heat is a bummer too..we grew up with no A/C and prayed for a breeze from the jersey city heights..[/quote]
