    Just moved to Atlanta,Georgia from Chicago,Illinois.
    Now,this is a city that knows how to live!
    Beautiful sunny days,warm balmy evenings.
    What a place.
    I watched the sunset from a park while lying on a blanket.
    It was beautiful.
    I've finally found my home.
    I love it here.

    Really heating up.
    Got to 95 degrees today.Not a problem.
    Live in an air-conditioned home,drive an air-conditioned car.
    What a pleasure to see the sun everyday like this.
    I'm turning into a sun worshipper.

    Had the backyard landscaped with western plants today.
    Lots of cactus and rocks.The yard is a breeze to maintain!
    No more mowing the lawn for me.Another scorcher today,but
    I love living in Atlanta.

    The temperature hasnt been below 97 all week.
    How do people get used to this kind of heat?
    At least its kinda windy,but getting used to the heat and humidity is taking longer than I expected.

    Fell asleep by the pool.
    (Got 3rd degree burns over 60% of my body)
    Missed 3 days of work.What a dumb thing to do.
    I learned my leasson, though.
    Got to respect the ol' sun in a climate like this.

    Morgan(our cat) snuck into the car before I left this morning.
    By the time I got to the hot car for lunch,Morgan had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stank up the $2,000 leather upholstery.
    I told the kids that she ran away.
    The car now smells like Kibbles and Shits.
    I learned my lesson though,No more cats in this heat.

    The wind sucks.
    It feels like a giant freaking blow dryer!
    And its hot as hell!
    The home air-conditioner is on the fritz,and the AC repairman charged $200 just to drive by and tell me he needed to order the parts.

    July 30,2007
    Been sleeping outside by the pool naked for 3 nights now.
    The monthly house payment is $1,500 and I cant even go inside.
    Why did I ever come here?

    Its 105 degrees....again!Finally got the air-conditioner fixed today for a cost of $900.
    The temperature gets down to 78 degrees,but this freaking humidity makes the house feel like its about 95 degrees.
    I hate this stupid city.

    August 8,2007
    If another wise ass person cracks,"Hot ebough for you today?" I'm going to him to death.Damn heat;107 today.
    By the time I get to work,the radiator is boiling over,my clothes are soaking wet,and I smell like baked cat!

    Tried to run some errands after work.
    Wore shorts and sat on the black leather seats in the ol' car.
    I thought my ass was on fire.
    I lost 2 layers of flesh and all the hair on the back of my legs and ass.
    Now my car smells like burnt hair,fried ass,and baked cat.

    August 10,2007
    The weather report might as well be a damn recording.
    Hot and sunny.Hot and sunny.Hot and sunny.
    Its been too hot to do anything for 2 damn months,and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week.
    Doesnt it ever rain in this damn desert?
    Water rationing will be next,so I might as well watch $1700 of cactus just dry up and blow into the damn pool.
    Not even cactus can live in this damn heat.

    Welcome to HELL!!!
    The temperature got to 111 today.
    Forgot to crack the window and blew the damn windshield out of the car.
    The installer came to fix it and said," Hot enough for you today?"
    My wife had to spend the $1,500 house payment to bail me out of jail.
    Freaking South.
    What kind of a sick demented idiot would want to live here?

    I thought all this time you live in Chattanooga.

    Wait,does that make you an Atlanta Falcons fan?
    Wait(again),a redneck from Chicago?

    I have been known to pull for the dirty birds.

    And I doubt very seriously that Chicago folks would even let me in their county.

    My sister in-law e-mailed that to me,and I thought I was kinda funny to think of a yankee living in atlanta.

    lol..very funny yote..in the only thing ill have to dissagree its in the categorization of the burns..probably 2 degree..that involves the cores of the skin with blisters..3 degree are the ones that burns gets into the muscle and theres nerve damage..and 60 % rigth now with 3 degrees youll find yourself typing in the center for burns care...just some curious facts..

    i actually was thinking minor 2nd degree also rigo...... although 60 percent of your body covered in partial thickness burns is concidered critical! Nothing you can really do about it though.

    This one time... In herpetology class... I was working on this project in the Mohave Desert catching rattlesnakes in the summer. I was on this medication that made me more sensitive to the sun. I wore pants and a long sleeve shirt, and I put sunblock everywhere, but forgot to do the tops of my hands. I ended up having to go to the emergency room for the burns on my hands. The flesh started falling off in chunks, and you could see the bones of my hands. The ER doctor could not believe it was a sunburn. He said it was the worst sunburn he's ever seen. It was painful.
