I've lived here all my life and I swear it has never been hotter. This last week of April seems to be the ultimate proof that global warming exists, and those who want to experience it first hand should really come here around March to August.
The heat and humidity have been really terrible lately, and it starts gradually from about 9:00am then slowly intensifies until 5:30pm. When the sun goes down about 6:00pm, you can still feel the lingering heat in the air. To add insult to injury, the weather bureau and media have been proclaiming nonstop that it's about to get hotter. No shit!
Recently, the LCD display of one of our old calculators melted, and it gave me a panic attack--when the green display turns black with small bubbles due to the heat, you know that's not a good sign.
That calculator was stored inside a desk drawer on our home's second floor, which is made out of wood, so it feels like a furnace during the afternoons. Being the OC person that I am, I spent a couple of days hastily reorganizing the gadgets on this floor, to the point of using a room thermometer to measure the temperature inside each drawer and cabinet.
When the temperature readings for the interiors of the storage cabinets on the far side of the rooms came out okay, I moved all the gadgets and gizmos I had there instead--and there you have it, crisis averted...for now.
