Supposed to be a good hot one in the upper Midwest tomorrow.  Here in Minneapolis it's supposed to be up close to 100 tomorrow.

In Iowa the various cities are opening up cooling centers and are advising residents to be careful about the heat. 

One of the local stations asked how well prepared the Minnesota power grid is for the heat. 

Quote

Here in Minnesota, we are part of the Eastern Interconnection, one of three sections of “the grid.”

The Eastern Interconnection includes nearly half of the United States.

Kevin Lee with the Department of Commerce’s energy resources division says utilities and operators can basically draw energy from this entire region during times of high usage.

“If you have a large event in one particular area that is producing a lot of demand, you may be able to compensate for that by bringing in energy from an area that is not experiencing that same event,” Lee explains.

In other words Minnesota won't be as fornicated as Abattoir land was or is when extreme weather hits the power grid.

My watch says it's 88° out right now.  Finally broke down, closed the windows, and turned the AC on.  Only the second time I've run it for any length of time.

Stay comfy!

Thank you!  Now it's 90° out.  AC works pretty good.  I have it set to 76° so I'm wondering now if my sister in law and my nieces would be grumbling that it's too warm at my place.  Parents have the house set at 76° and last summer my sister in law said that was too warm so I snuck it down to 73° and the girls seemed to be happier but mom grumbled it was too cold then.  I might actually turn it up a few degrees because it almost seems too cold in here.

I think I actually inherited my mom's temperature tolerances - she likes it warmer and I'm finding that after VSG surgery I like it a bit warmer too.  Or maybe it was just growing up without AC.

      I looked at Luke’s rumored gf’s fb page and I don’t see any of the posts mentioning him. I wonder if those two broke up and that is a lesson to all the other brothers. 

      She’s made her profile more private. It could just be that.

      My experience with fundie live streams is that they often become videos you can watch later. I will recap though.

      When I did my social work internship at the women's prison, the food was ok, but quite bland. The coffee was decaffeinated but flavored. I had mushroom soup once which was quite tasteless. I paid for the lunch, a nominal amount, but mostly I brought my own. The women could buy condiments at the commissary at a large mark up. I was allowed to bring in my own coffee pot which I shared with my clients, also candy.

      Will anyone do it up right, buying a bird for kapparot?

      "Another custom observed during this time is kapparot. This is rarely practiced today, and is observed in its true form only by Chasidic and occasionally Orthodox Jews. Basically, you purchase a live fowl, and on the morning before Yom Kippur you wave it over your head reciting a prayer asking that the fowl be considered atonement for sins. The fowl is then slaughtered and given to the poor (or its value is given)."

       

      Did the Remnant actually do this?
