The coldest winter I ever spent, was summer in San Francisco.

(Although Livermore can get pretty hot)

Meh. Pretty normal actually. I've lived in SoCal for over 50 years and these kinds of temps happen every year in the desert.

So true! I went to San Francisco in July, from Phoenix. Still trying to find one of my nuts!

In Phoenix, you don't need a weather report. Hot and sunny for eight months. I was wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops. Landed in SF, it was 60 degrees, windy, and that cold humidity that numbs you to the bone.

"The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for parts of Arizona, Nevada and California, including Las Vegas and Phoenix. This warning signifies "dangerously hot conditions up to 120" and is in effect until 9 p.m. PST on Saturday."

Arizona and Nevada....Phoenix, Yuma and the Imperial Valley.

My son is in the Marines.  Several years ago, he got sent to Yuma for three weeks for some kind of training thing.  He is a child of the coastal PNW.  He said he now knew what it was like to be in a microwave, it was so hot.

No, no, no. It's global warming or some other never seen phenomena that is due directly to Trump and Republicans. It's the Fark way.

Isn't California mostly pre-desert to actual desert anyway? If it weren't for all the water they pipe around so much the place would be a dust bowl.

Except that Phoenix is set to break it's own record for the month of July, this year.  The frog is getting close to boiling, saying this is normal.

Not wet in Oregon, but I left the windows open last night and it was cold enough when I got up that I turned the heat on for a bit.  Earlier in the week it hit 100F.

On the coast it has been cold, for the summer.   It has hit the high 40s at night a few times, and upper 50s/low 60s during the day.   We can always tell when it's hot in the Valley, the "heat suck" drags the colder marine air right onto the beach.   It's like summer in Kodiak, AK.

Meh
It's August
desert
fires
it's been hotter before

Wait 'til the year is over, add up the temperatures, find the average.  You'll probably find out that it is getting hotter.  As it is worldwide.  The last 5 years were the hottest on record.

Not really.   There is more forested land than desert.   There are the Sierras and a lot of it is Mediterranean in climate.  But boy,when it has a drought, it goes all out.

The Imperial Valley, mentioned in the article, yeah, it was total desert until water was diverted from the Colorado in the early 1900s (I think), which in one clusterfark led to the creation of the Salton Sea.

The only people blaming Trump in this thread is you trumpanzees.  What do you call that when somebody makes up an offense, then gets offended at it and blames somebody else?

Dude, the only people who even mentioned Trump and the GOP are the two people who seem to support Trump and the GOP.   I went back and read every post.

Unless even discussing global warming is automatically seen as an attack on them, which seems to me like you guys have issues and are hyper defensive because you know it's true.   Knee-jerking furiously.

What the fu*king hell? YOU ACTUALLY THE FU*K THINK THIS?

HOW CRAZY ARE YOU?

You need to be locked up for your own safety and the safety of others if this is actually a real sentiment and not just fu*king around on the internet.
