Holy heat wave Batman!

The weather is just too damn hot!

Extreme Heat Wave Hoboken NJ July 22 2011 - Holy heat wave Batman!People either love extreme heat waves or they hate them.

If I lived on a 50-acre secluded property with a large pool, lots of trees and a staff of servants, I suppose I’d be able to manage. But this is just downright ridiculous and I can’t wait until it subsides.

For those of you that have to commute to work – hope you can handle the conditions. The last place I’d want to be is a crowded subway car or bus with weak air conditioning. I wonder how many “sick days” will be used today?

Remember: Check in on the elderly – and INSIST they do NOT go outside and endanger themselves!

We’ll have some more useful tips for our current blistering conditions a bit later…

Be kind to the dogs during summer heat waves!

Hot weather tips for dogs in Hoboken NJ - Holy heat wave Batman!Heat waves like this must be murder for our awesome pooches.

Try and take them out either early in the AM or after it gets dark. The sun and hot pavement is uncomfortable for them.

If you can’t control when they go out, try for shorter and more frequent walks for 10 or 15 minutes at a time.

The ASPCA has some pretty good tips as well, such as:

  • Don’t be an idiot and leave them in a car!
  • Lots of cold water!
  • Get plenty of shade and limit exercise
  • And many more…

Hopefully no more Hoboken Sinkholes…

One of the big weather topics when a heatwave strikes, is the effect it has on the roads – causing many surfaces to buckle.

Just like the sinkhole on 3rd & Park earlier in the week – let’s pray no other parts of our infrastructure fail over the next couple days.

Stay cool, Hoboken!

Do not go to the Multi-Service Center to cool off. Two years ago the city purchase portable air conditioners rather than fix the central air. I have personally been in the building, and these units do not have the capacity to cool a closet. Our senior citizens are being fried when they go for meals, bingo or other events. I guess using 10 grand of the 5 million surplus to provide air conditioning under normal conditions is to much to ask our administration.

I’d settle for a small fixer-upper by a lake, fenced, a little grass/garden. No servants needed. Maybe when I reach my golden years and become feeble, then I’ll hire an extra pair of hands to help out.

What would ultimately suck would be a power outage.

Flyinace2000 that was a great gesture on your part: I hope the person who took the entire
cooler with water is caught: they should be ashamed of themselves!!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
