  1. I feel your pain– I’m in Ottawa, Canada, but we’re already at 103F or something with the humidity. And we’re looking at 113 by this afternoon.

    *pants*

  2. yeah seriously =/
    it’s been over 100 here in texas daily, and having just finished the car it has no a/c as of yet =/

  3. Chicago has a 311 also? Crazy. Every city should have 311.

    It is also hot like that in NY. Currently it is 5 a.m. and 77degrees, feels like 80, according to yahoo weather.
