At one time today, I saw where it was 91 with 87% humidity. I don't know if it got hotter than that or not. It's like a sauna. Not my idea of fun.

It's really cooled off here with the marine onshore flow. Nice mid 80s. I was just out grabbing some cucumbers from the garden and it almost feels like fall with the cloud cover and drizzle this morning.

Dad said it was miserable in MO last night with the heat and humidity.

Off to eat my cucumbers

It's not that bad. People just like to complain. Just get a cool beer or lemonade, sit under a tree, and sweat. I just keep a towel handy to wipe off now and again. Just don't come within 10 feet of me as you'll be risking your nose hairs.

This is the only time of year which I appreciate what I do for work. Next week when this heat wave is over, I'll start complaining about my BS job again.

I'm hating the heat as well. Pretty bad when you're out fishing on a lake and even with a breeze you can't cool off without jumping in!

Keep it. We don't need it in FL. It's been in the 90's with 85+% humidity here anyhow.

Spoke to my brother in NC yesterday. He's out working on the barn and it's 105 at sunset!

I still miss it. Step out of the AC and your eyes fog up, your shirt is soaked with sweat from stepping off the front porch, and your breath gets sucked right out into the sodden air.

Somebody (guess who) is going to end up paying a whole lot for some KWHs of power. Welcome to California.

With the extremely high temperatures, peak loads, generation availability, and system conditions occurring today, Tuesday, August 1, 2006, Midwest ISO is declaring a NERC Energy Emergency Alert (EEA) 2 for the entire Market Footprint excluding the West Region entities of ALTW, GRE, MP, NSP, OTP, SMP, and MDU. Effective immediately all other Midwest ISO entities are to implement the steps of EEA 2 including:

- Curtailment of non-firm energy curtailments outside the market
- Public Appeals to reduce demand
- Voltage reduction where applicable
- Demand side management
- Utility load conservation measures, and Interruption of non-firm end use loads in accordance with applicable contracts

Midwest ISO remains in Maximum Generation Emergency Warning at this time. Should it be required, Midwest ISO will issue further instructions including a Maximum Generation Emergency Event if necessary. Begin preparing to use maximum dispatch range of units.

The Midwest ISO is also requesting Market Participants with available resources external to the Midwest Market to complete the Midwest ISO Emergency Energy Offer form and fax it to the Midwest ISO Shift Manager for consideration.

The offer form can be found on the www.midwestmarket.org website under Documents| Reliability Procedures and Documents| Emergency Operating Procedures| EOP by sections| EOP Appendices or by clicking Here.

Please follow the instructions on the offer form to initiate the offer.

I blacked out while rolling in the midwest once, to much black berry brandy - does that count?


Jesse,
No, we normally do not get rolling power outages, we have been spared that misery, sounds like we are getting close though. They are begging us to conserve during peak usage times. And power grids are the hot topic on the news lately.

Michigan and some surrounding states had a major outage last year. I don't think it was due to the heat, just poor engineering.
