I wouldn't toss it aside too quickly. Tornado warnings are going around in the States, so it's possible he might have seen something.

Yeah, you get used to it though. Today was already better then yesterday, even if it was hotter today. besides, I'm working for one more month only then 4 weeks vacation.

And to the Alberty guy ^^^ Not really always this hot. Especially not in May. It just gets so damned humid in this city.

Same here...I am a cook in a hot, busy kitchen with no AC. Can't open back door because of flies.
Didn't feel like dying, but oh boy...it's ****ing hot in there.
I wear 2 headbands (one is not enough to soak up head sweat.)
I use under-armour t-shirts ( those gay, tight spandex shirts) beneath the Chef jacket. Works pretty good for wicking away the sweat. You should try it.

I must drink about 5 litres of water every shift, and still wind up dehydrated, and feeling like crap. Thankfully, the restaurant let's the kitchen staff run a tab at the bar.

Ahhhhh.... kitchens in the summer time.

Let me ask you, the sweat that comes off the body, does it even land in the food?

Good question. Probably.

It's ok, a little salt is good for the flavour. J/K

We wear jackets, that are buttoned right up to the neck, and long sleeves. I wear 2 absorbant headbands underneath my little hat.

Very little, if any, sweat winds up in food. Although if you are leaning over a pot on the stove, you might a drop or 2 in the soup.

I'm in the exact same boat

There is a Couche-Tard in my building; sometimes I go down there just to get some AC

My AC should be installed before the weekend


In the long term, Im gonna buy a condo with built-in, central AC

BTW, a home in Hampstead was struck by lightning and caught fire!

Honestly, I love hot weather (it helps that I live in a basement)... and thunderstorms! I was in heaven today! Very small hail here in Ahuntsic.

Nature is so crazy... I wish to see another storm like last year... I was in Eastern Laval and driving to work. 8:30PM, Tornado warning (I didn't knew it, as much as I'm plugged on Meteomedia)... had to stop on the road... could't even see the hazard lights from the car in front of me because of the heavy rain.

P.S.: I might be crazy but I wish to become a Tornado/Thunderstorm chaser one day if I get enough spare time.

that most def made me lol

so i nearly drowned outside yesterday. i was at the grocery store when it started, then it (very briefly, as i unfortunately experienced) stopped and i decided to just take the walk. How wrong i was thinking that it was over. Ive taken showers that were less wet than this.

I once had an AC.

It was old, it was loud, it smelt funny and the cold air it put inside my apartment gave me a headache and made me throw up.

Whether or not I hate ALL ACs, I hated that one.

Living in a basement apartment > AC. Seriously, during the summer it's nice and cool down here and during the winter it's an oven (without the heater even on).
