You know how you normally have to wait a minute when taking a shower, for the water to get hot?

It's so hot in Texas, that for the past couple weeks, I have to wait for the water to COOL DOWN. Not joking...

I'm in southern Spain for a few months and am starting (after a month) to get used to 30+C at night (think that's 90+F)

If the shower still feels cold after a minute then I know its helping!

Regardless the cause, global warming is a real thing. Fortunately, once the ice caps sufficiently melt, which is happening faster than previously predicted, North America will freeze like a popsicle. So, there's something to look forward to.

It's like a farside cartoon...

While minding his own business and working as an admin just trying to keep a forum alive in the summer and making small chat BigMike inadvertently steps on a political landmine...called "global warming" ...or ah... "climate change"

I am happy in Texas if temp stays in mid 90's during summer at least. Last year had 90 days over 100 degrees. Mid 90's seem cool compared to say 105. One of my favorite pastimes is to complain about heat from my air conditioned palace. Seriously do hate the heat though.

Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

Correlation between price and temperature anyone?
Gotta affect agricultural futures, I imagine.

@Fat Tails that is just so wrong. I dream of 70 in the summer.

Is 70 F near the second VWAP band?

BTW, i thought you were using the metric system in your country.

I made the effort to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, as I knew you would not understand it otherwise.

Once upon a time we were using this old system called Fahrenheit in Canada but nowadays we are using the celsius metric system. Makes more sense once you are used to it. It's like looking at a stochastic oscillator, above zero you are in the hot territory below zero you are in the cold territory. Above 30 celcius you are overheating, below -30 you are overfreezing.

Does that mean that the Stochastics is always hot?

Dallas Texas recent weather. The top starts July 17th, through yesterday. Look at the number of days above 100 degrees (first column):
