Summer heat in DC

Postby LastLegend » Sat Jun 11, 2011 3:58 pm

It's driving me crazy. I just want to beat someone up sometimes.

It's nauseating. I'm a few miles down the road in Virginia and everything smells swampy. I'm concerned for elderly and sick people, or the poor who can't escape the heat or stay hydrated.
I don't know anything about Hongaku Jodo.

... and cooling stations are not opened and the Metro cars are undercooled and 1/20 of the Metro cars supposedly have no air conditioning at all - but in the past several days I've only found 1 car that had air conditioning working so that 1/20 number reported on the news surely isn't correct. This city closed down before air conditioning became commonplace.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."

No relief yet here in North Carolina either. It is not usually this hot until late July through August.
