I like to read the comments to newspaper stories. Here’s a comment from a story in the Houston Chronicle about the Texas heat…
Since we haven’t had any “severe weather”, the weather men and women have decided to jump on the “heat index” wagon. “Feels like” is a bunch of hooey! It’s just something to stir up everybody.
Just state the temperature, tell everybody to drink water, stay out of the heat, and if you have no air conditioning, take a cool shower or splash water on you from a filled bathtub. You can even go to the libraries around town, a shopping mall, a grocery store, a nice neighborhood bar…good grief, there are many places to cool off.
