“It’s Hot in Topeka”

by , under video

The past several days have been hot, hot, hot. We took the boys swimming on Saturday, and Jeff and I both got a bit sunburned. I barely left the house on Sunday, and was only too glad to be in the AC at work yesterday. There was a heat advisory for all three days. Last evening, at 930pm, it was still 90 degrees, and the heat index was maybe 96 – just dreadful. Today we’re having a “cooldown,” sort of, expecting a high of only 92 degrees. And maybe some rain soon, if we’re lucky.

We saw this on the Cartoon Network a year or so ago. The show is called “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends,” and in this bit, Bloo hears the weather forecast for Topeka, and then runs with it.

    That’s HILARIOUS! I just got home from work and needed that laugh! I love that cartoon! “Topeka” IS a pretty funny name when you think of it! 🙂

    It seems we’re all burning up this summer! It has been much hotter in MA this year. Fortunately today has been pretty mild (upper 70s), but of course I was at work, indoors in AC, most of that time. Considering how weird the weather has been lately, I hope winter won’t be too bad this year!

    Thanks for your comment, Marie – I’m glad you got a laugh from it! Thank heavens the past several days have been much better as far as temperature goes – although it rained most of Saturday and was even a bit cool! It wasn’t bad, just strange.

    It’s funny what kinds of patterns you find in weather, sometimes. What you say about winter reminds me…when Kyle was a baby, in 2000, that summer was a scorcher. About half the days in August were 100 degrees or more, I remember hearing that on the news – and I’d bet most of the other 15 days were between 95 and 99! July was hot, but August was worse. Then, in December and into January ’01, we had several weeks that were FRIGID. I was brushing snow off my car one evening after work thinking about how pleasant it felt outside – and it was just over 20 degrees! So August was close to 100, and December was close to zero. You never know what’s over the next hill!
