I learned an engineering lesson during last night's maxi-dust storm (I just can't bring myself to say "Haboob"). Our power was down from the time it hit the airport till 12:30 this morning. During what seemed to be days, the power would flicker just enough to get your hopes up and then not appear again for another hour or so
A couple guys filming a storm cloud zipping across the horizon in New Brunswick, Canada were treated to a rather stunning visual bonus when the cloud took the shape of an almost perfect human face — one that really looks like American founding father George Washington.
It's pretty frightening to calculate what happens to 100+ temps in a closed car, considering the increase in 15 minutes time averages 40 degrees. Most parents would not leave their child unattended, (though this has happened leading to tragic developments), but many think cracking a window and leaving a pet is fine.
With thirty-plus days of temps over a hundred degrees, people are starting to get creative on how to cool off. We see kids plastic pools filled with ice for the pets outside,or maybe the kids. There's less clothes of course, with shorts being endorsed for professional office attire! And now, there's something called a "cooling vest" that I just found out existed.
Hot temperatures that have been in the Midwest are spreading now to the Eastern coast of the United States. In the past few days heat indexes (feels like temps) have reached up to 120 degrees in Mitchell, South Dakota and 126 in Newton, Iowa!
