Woohoo! Early comic! and of course, in my field I kinda do this every single day when we look if it's gonna be a rainy day or not :P

Heh, I live in Nantes, France, the climate of which is very similar to Vancouver's, and we're a bit like that, too.

I live in Seattle, USA, and I believe I can assure you that our weather is more like Vancouver's than yours is! (And yes, everybody on both sides of the border has been complaining about the cool and rainy summer. But if it heats up even 5 deg C everybody will be complaining about how hot it is....)

Heh.

I'd give anything for some cooler weather right now...

I live in Constanta, Romania, and the weather is consistently around 30°C from June to September. Maybe I should move to Canada? (Or Nantes, which is much closer, in any case).

Let's see, that's 86°F?  Please, we've had 100+°F (~38°C) days here in the southern U.S. all summer.  I'd kill for a 30°C day right now.

Well, 30°C was just my estimate based on what my desktop widget was indicating. The actual average for July and August is 37°C, so I think we are pretty much on par.

I remember I spent a few days in Atlanta while I was coming back from San Diego back in 2007 and my flight got canceled (Avoid Delta Airlines like the plague - they'll leave you stranded mid-way and lose your bags as well) and it felt pretty much like home. A lot more humid though.

The only difference between a meteorologist and an engineer is that we only complain when there isn't something interesting going on. Otherwise, we use data comparisons even in casual conversations.

So in otherwords, hell for us is San Diego.

San Diego News:

"Now over to our meteorologist. How's the weather this week, Jim?"

"Nice. ... back to you, Tom"

(I stole that from someone, but I forget who! Lewis Black probably?) :)

Uhg. Here in Oklahoma it's going to get up to 45 c tomorrow. (113 f) Every summer I throw around the phrase "It's hot as Balls..." but this year I had to adjust that to "It's hot as fevered balls" and finally, just accept that the person would be dead if it reached this tempurature. Sad

Y'know, I don't get the complaints about it being cold.  I found it way too effing hot last year, and I again find it way too effing hot this year.  (And yes, I'm a Vancouverite, too).  What can I say, I'm a winter person.

And, to be fair, Katerly, there are documented cases of people surviving fevers of 45 degrees celsius.  Most ended up with severe brain damage, but the highest recorded with no permenant effects was 115.7F.  At 41 Celsius, brain tissue starts to die. Cheerful thought, isn't it?  I recommend a holiday to Alaska.

How New Englanders complain about the weather:

"Bunch ah sissies..."

"Yep... little girls all of 'em..."

"I recall back in summer '01..."

"Yep... snowed in July... some summer..."

As far as I can see, ombudsman is originally a Swediah (drat, I thougth it was Norwegian) word that literally means "commission man". In other words, the person who hears and investigates complaints by the people, or something like that.

I'm talking partly out of my ass and partly out of an online etymology dictionary.

Yep! It's a pseudo-government person that you can complain to. Fix this weather, government!

No... It must be too early. I just can't get my head around the idea that the government, who presumably take your taxes to pay for this, would actually have a weather ombudsman????????????????????

So what happens? The ombudsman decides that your complaint is upheld, and recommends exactly what to exactly who?

I lives in the other side of Canadia, but I've been exiled to my homeland (mainland china) by my parents who needed a break from me for a month or so.

 

But apparently, while China is having a regular 26-32 degree C summer, ON has been hit by a few heat waves. A few weeks back, dad complained on the phone that it was a 37 degree high over there!

So you have our rain! Just kidding.  But we would like it back as soon as you're done with it.  Seriously though, don't complain about rain, right now it's so dry where I am that walking across a grass field My foot slipped into a crack In the ground because it was so dried out. 100+ degrees outside, everyone's worried about heatstroke.
