In physics, heat is a result of movement. The more active atoms and molecules are, the faster they are moving, and the more heat they are giving off.
Absolutely no movement and I am still hot, hot, hot. I find my self wanting only to sit in front of no less than 2 fans with a HUGE glass of ice water day in and day out.
We are into our 4th year year, our 4th spring/summer season. Shouldn't it be getting easier. Actually the odd part is this is the first time I am feeling discomfiture with the heat. Yes, each spring/summer season has been hot, but it really hasn't bothered me. This year however I am in distress. I find myself in a daze throughout the day. I don't go anywhere, don't want to go anywhere, don't see anyone, don't want to see any,one can't seem to get the energy up to do the most mundane task.
It's not the sweating, I'm so over that, My name is Debi and I sweat! It really is just part of living here.
It just seems to be so much more internal this year, I am hot inside, and it can't get out.
I've been following the "invest 93" disturbance over the Yucatan Peninsula which has now dissipated. I was hoping beyond all belief for a huge storm to make the heat stop.
An invest ## is a designation given by the hurricane center to an area they are investigating but that is not yet a depression. They do this so they can run the hurricane models on it for forecasting purposes. It is typically a high cloud formation that could turn into, ..., something..., cyclone, storm, ..., whatever, I was just looking for something, anything to blow away the heat.
