Predicting the Heat’s-A-Coming

Posted on May 11th, 2009 by The SUBWAYblogger in Bums, Rider Strategy

I’m to lazy to go and look up the temperatures from last May, but I feel like we’re getting off easy this year temperature wise. I have a feeling these relatively mild weeks are going to quickly come back and bite us in the ass.

I’m predicting that we get our first sustained heat not this week but next week.  This week will be the last week of the nice mild weather.   I’m just going on a hunch that next week is going to be the official beginning of the balls hot weather.

Of course, I have absolutely no scientific data to back that up.  It’s just a feeling.

As with everything on the subway, I get really jumpy when things go too well for too long.

Being able to leave home without a jacket and not sweat my ass off on the platform is delightful.  But I’m used to only being able to do that for a few days a year.

Now, remember SUBWAYblogger’s three day theory.  It takes a full three days for the temperature underground to totally catch up to the outside temp.  One day of 98 degree weather won’t do anything down below.  We need three back to back days in the mid eighties for it to become totally unbearable underground.

I’m really not looking forward to the heat in the subway this year, not that I would any year.  This year particularly though.  There’s a really distinct smell of urine ripening at my stop that just gets worse by the day.  I can only imagine what the heat is going to bring.

There’s clearly some homeless guy that keeps making a daily deposit there because there’s no way that one quick piss could be persistent this long.  That ammonia smell is getting pretty ridiculous.  It’s almost to the point where you can taste it.  I’m considering walking all the way to the other end of the platform from now on.

Anyway, mark my words.  Heat’s a comin’.

    i have already noticed (6 train, from 110th to 23rd) that the MTA is cutting back on not just AC, but fans as well. at least 3 times in the past two weeks, there was clearly no air moving about from 110 to 42nd. then poof, as soon as we hit 42nd, the fans and or AC kicks in. guess they figure the peeps coming off Metro North are a higher class than us coming from the UES. this is going to be really fun when the actual heat hits!

  2. The SUBWAYblogger said on May 11th, 2009 at 3:06 pm

    @The Sedge: Yeah man, I feel you. I’ve noticed that too.

    I thought it was just something had broken down. It happens from time to time, but then you move to another car and it works.

    However, it seems to be happening more and more lately.

    I’m as much of a treehugger as the next guy, so I can deal with killing the AC this time of year. But those fans need to keep moving. That still air is killer.

    I´ve been reading your blog for awhile and it for no reason occurred to me to comment. Which is totally ironic, due to the fact I´ve spent a lot of time over the history few months studying what it takes to make people comment on my own website. Immediately after reading a couple of your posts I guess it´s controversial topics that stir people´s emotions to the point where they can´t simply just ´let it go.´

    I’ve really noticed that credit restoration activity has to be conducted with tactics. If not, chances are you’ll find yourself endangering your rating. In order to grow into success fixing to your credit rating you have to always make sure that from this instant you pay any monthly expenses promptly in advance of their planned date. It is significant for the reason that by certainly not accomplishing that, all other actions that you will choose to adopt to improve your credit standing will not be successful. Thanks for discussing your thoughts.

    Thanks for your handy post. Over time, I have come to be able to understand that the particular symptoms of mesothelioma cancer are caused by a build up of fluid between lining in the lung and the upper body cavity. The infection may start in the chest place and pass on to other parts of the body. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma cancer include weight reduction, severe deep breathing trouble, vomiting, difficulty taking in food, and puffiness of the neck and face areas. It must be noted some people living with the disease do not experience just about any serious symptoms at all.

    Thanks for revealing your ideas. I’d personally also like to mention that video games have been ever evolving. Better technology and improvements have helped create sensible and interactive games. These kinds of entertainment games were not that sensible when the actual concept was first of all being used. Just like other kinds of technology, video games too have had to evolve by means of many many years. This itself is testimony towards fast progression of video games.

    Another issue is really that video gaming became one of the all-time greatest forms of fun for people of every age group. Kids participate in video games, and also adults do, too. The particular XBox 360 is probably the favorite video games systems for many who love to have hundreds of activities available to them, and who like to relax and play live with other people all over the world. Many thanks for sharing your thinking.

    Thanks for your strategies. One thing really noticed is banks as well as financial institutions have in mind the spending behaviors of consumers as well as understand that most people max out there their cards around the holidays. They smartly take advantage of that fact and commence flooding your inbox plus snail-mail box using hundreds of no interest APR credit cards offers shortly when the holiday season comes to an end. Knowing that in case you are like 98% of American general public, you’ll get at the chance to consolidate personal credit card debt and move balances for 0 interest rates credit cards.

    I have realized that car insurance corporations know the motors which are vulnerable to accidents and other risks. In addition, they know what sort of cars are given to higher risk as well as the higher risk they’ve got the higher the premium price. Understanding the simple basics regarding car insurance will help you choose the right type of insurance policy which will take care of the needs you have in case you become involved in any accident. Many thanks for sharing the ideas on your blog.

    The program provided insight to the roots of the current international problem. It fairly spreadsresponsibility from government policy, the financial institutions, our basic greed or misdirected dreams, and the herd mentality of human beings. It is interesting to note theangle of the Enron virus as highlighted in theshow.
