Nice one Goq
I walked into the Dunkin Donuts on Devon and asked for a coffee and they couldn’t believe that I wanted a hot one.
Make sure your air conditioning works!!

Yahoo weather is showing 96 now in Chicago, with an expected high of 98. Then it’s supposed to start cooling off tomorrow, with it getting to a high of 80 on Sunday. Where did you get 113 from?
In my part of NJ, they’re saying a high of 104 tomorrow.July 6, 2012 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #883969
BH- 113 with the heat index, really it’s only a mere 103. I just finished my coffee but a case of freeze pops would be nice. Hashem extended the heat wave another day so shabbos afternoon freeze pops and cold cholent may be on the menu. If anyone has any good menu ideas that dont involve ovens I’ open!July 6, 2012 4:58 pm at 4:58 pm #883970choppyParticipant

MINE TOO we MUST be relatedJuly 6, 2012 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm #883975
Of course my thermometer is Celsius. But 37 sounds so much better than 100.July 6, 2012 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm #883976
If I cant take the heat on an erev shabbos, what do I do to get out of the kitchen?July 6, 2012 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #883978gefenParticipant
Yummy: you mentioned that you’ve been here almost 21 yrs. That makes you sound like you’re so much older.
So here’s a clarification for the CR:
SHE MOVED HERE WHEN SHE WAS A FEW MONTHS OLD. I should know. I was with her. 😉
Syag: mmmmm- cold cholent. sounds delish! i don’t even make cholent in this weather. btw: ur daughter looks amazing. saw her twice today.
Postsemgirl – so i guess ur bed won’t let you come to shul
Choppy: to answer ur question — nope, not a one.July 6, 2012 9:39 pm at 9:39 pm #883981yaakov doeParticipant

We had a few days of 100+ in Haifa a few weeks ago. Air conditioners are for wimps. So are fans.July 8, 2012 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #883986☕️coffee addictParticipant

I am a big fan of air conditioners 🙂July 9, 2012 4:13 am at 4:13 am #883989
I dont know about you but when somene puts ‘wimp’, and ‘fan’ together with Chicago the only thing that comes to my mind is ‘Cubs’. (sorry musser zoger)July 9, 2012 4:19 am at 4:19 am #883990OneOfManyParticipant

Syag how could you? is it wimpy to cling to a team that hasnt won in 106 years? is it wimpy to always say theres always next year? such loyalty is hard to find, hope springs eternal for cubs fans we have endured and will see them raise the championship banner in our lifetime!July 9, 2012 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm #883994
Oh Goq, I am so sorry. I couldn’t help it. It is wired into my brain that way and just burst forth on its own when I saw that post. I have been hiding under the kitchen table ever since I wrote it for fear of the neighbors.July 9, 2012 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm #883995
Apology accepted Syag lets go rizzo bye bye dempster,garza and anyone else we can get prospects for.July 10, 2012 6:23 am at 6:23 am #883996haifagirlParticipant

Even if that was what I meant, I would never say it. I would never use “that” when referring to people. “That” is for things. “Who” is for people.July 11, 2012 3:02 am at 3:02 am #883997
