Ooh good luck. That isn't good is it. And it's just gonna get hotter...

I hope you get it fixed soon, I would have just drowned myself in a bathtub with my sweat if that happened.

Thank god the Summer solstice is over. Gawd, the sun set at 9:30 for the whole time I was in Canada. How annoying.

    Winter's severely overrated if you ask me even in Cali, it's not to bad downtown in areas like Redlands though but it can get pretty chilly sometimes, the San Bernardino Mountains on the other hand are the last place you want to be in Cali by the time snow hits though that's for sure, having to deal with the black ice on the road along with random snowstorms can be hell man.

    Well, San Francisco area (I live in Pleasanton) is fine for me. I love the rain...I dun know if I like snow though.

    But yeah, sometimes it gets crazy, like blow down a tree that was probs gonna die anyways and cause so much hysteria in that damn middle school.

    They always name hurricanes the most boring stuff. For instance in Australia we had "Cyclone Tracey".

    Why not things like Rasputin, Hitler, Voldemort? Things that already strike fear into the hearts of everybody. Why ruin perfectly good names by making them synonymous with hurricanes?

    It's cold here in the winter, too. Very rainy. so then it's wet, and cold, and muggy. ;;
    Of course, 32 degrees F may not be cold to some, but it's freezing to me. ;;

      Great now I'm convinced Hurricane Voldemort is gonna tear Cali apart by the end of 2012. Time to prepare my underground bunker, gotta find my copies of Catherine and Halo Reach to keep me occupied though.

      Because Hurricane Andrew makes people underestimate their power. That's why.

      Well, because I'm not sure anyone will live in the country that Hurricane Hitler goes through. Besides it's Heidler.

      I was born literally a week after Andrew hit Louisiana. My mamma calls me a hurricane baby. c:

      Now, am I the only one who thinks of Lord Moldy Butt (from the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy's Harry Potter parody) when he hears "Lord Voldemort"?
      So now all I can see is Hurricane Moldy Butt. :c

      I get sleepy when I hear the words "Voldemort" and "Harry Potter". So no, no "moldy butt" for me, but rather "Hurricane zzz".

      @Toujours Yeah, but all of them are like "Andrew" and "Ian" and "Tracey" and "Ash" and "Misty" and where am I going with this

      Anyways, I honestly think the Meteorological Society should just choose a fitting name after the actual hurricane for record-keeping purposes - if it's killed millions of Jewish people, name it Hurricane Hitler. If it's well planned out and nobody gets hurt but a couple people almost die, call it Hurricane Voldemort. Stuff like that.

      @Jellicent Yeah, I was going for Category 5... :\

      No, no no no, that would be horrible. Funny though it may be, I think people may be a little...ticked by that.
      Why not call it something like Death Clock?

          Alabama sucks anyways. All they have is shallow stuff like glitter stores. The city would just be flooded and stained with useless crap after the hurricane.

          They should just number them and then no one will ever have to worry about creativity at all. :(

          Yes - "Have you heard about Hurricane 1580-408C?"

          "Oh dude, it was as bad as 1821-384I..."

          Also, why is it called a "cyclone" in some places, "typhoon" in others, and "Hurricane in North America?

          C isn't a number, lmao. We can remember numbers like 9/11 and such, we could remember "Hurricane 125" if it was a big deal. XD

          Yeah, but knowing how organized the scientific community is, they'll make numbers that look like they came from a license plate.

          I'm glad that I didn't go to SF Pride this year, because I just found out that my mom went.

          Would have been awkward to run into her there.
