WASHINGTON - A heat wave baking the eastern United States in record temperatures is set to continue on Sunday after deadly storms killed at least 12 people, downed power lines from Indiana to Maryland and left more than 3 million customers without power.

Emergencies were declared in Washington D.C., Ohio, Virginia and West Virginia on Saturday because of damage from overnight storms, which unleashed hurricane-force winds across a 500-mile (800-km) stretch of the mid-Atlantic region.

You're so hot Shadow lmao.gif

Kreeper and his gang is moving to SC at the moment so I don't know if they were affected by this. We were out of power this morning and the internet didn't come back on till 2 pm so I think we might have had some bad weather as well hmm.gif

We've had a pretty nice summer so far, no heat waves or anything but nice steady temps. Mostly sunny and some rains during the night. We only had one crappy rainy indoors day so far. But other people complain about the weather and hope it will improve soon and I'm just like wut? blonde.gif

Our backyard is so sheltered from the wind and facing West so it gets really warm. beercheer.gif

Yeah I'm afraid you're having bad weather when we have the good stuff. High pressure over Russia gives us really nice weather but also steers the lows from the Atlantic over you and the rest of Europe. Nice for us but not for you unfortunately.

We are still in Wisconsin. We will not be moving until next Sunday or Monday. The only weather we have had is friggin hot. It has been running about 35-38C for about a week and will keep on going through next Sunday. It does get pretty damn hot down in the SE US. The good part is that we will have AC. Up here the only AC is under a shade tree. A few people have it, but most just deal with the few weeks a year we have hot weather. That's ok. We make up for it with 6-7 months of winter.

Moving back to the south for the first time in years means we will have to learn to talk slow and drink sweet tea again.

I just found out that my mother in eastern NC is without power.


Gotta love the grid system.
