Power Troubles In NY

ConEd is asking all buildings to cut their power usage by 25%. It’s going to be close to 100 here today.
At least I don’t have to go into the subway.

    Boo effin’ hoo.
    The difference between 100 in NY/NJ and 100 in Arkansas is that you know in a few days you’ll get a break. We do not know that. Our 100-degree days stretch out for eternity.
    Or at least October.

    But us pasty folk up here just aren’t able to handle it like y’all are, Lisa. I mean, have you ever tried to find sweet tea in Manhattan? It’s barbaric, I tell you!

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    Plus we have a big problem in Manhattan when the power goes out. It just gets fugly real quick.

    Time for a cold beer, Mr. Bingley.

  5. Mr. Bingley says:

    I’m thinking of doing my part to conserve by shutting off my computer and going down to the bar in our building and having a few, Jeff. What better way to conserve?
    Al Gore would be so proud of me.

    It’s hotter than a bastard here in TX.
    We were out walking the poopers at about 2330 and it was still 91F. We could swear there was a breeze. It was downright tropical.
    I would say I would much rather be in TX or Arkansas when the power goes out than in Manhattan. Folks jess ain’t civilized up there when things don’t go their way.

  7. Mr. Bingley says:

    I agree there, Susanna.

  8. Ken Summers says:

    So why don’t you just send your lackeys out to fire up the generator and buy some ice? That’s what I do.

  9. Mr. Bingley says:

    I would, Ken, but they’re out buying Jew Bullets for me.

  10. Lisa says:

    I don’t drink sweet tea, Bing, so NYC would be no hardship. My husband, on the other hand, would die. He has to have BREWED sweet tea.

  11. Cullen says:

    I can do without tea. I don’t drink it often. I have a cup of Darjeeling now and then, but that’s about it.
    As for heat … the 100 degree days down here have me feeling all kinds of sympathy for you, Bing. Really. Not kidding one little bit.
    As for being without power in NYC/NJ, I would certainly hate to be in that situation.

  12. Ken Summers says:

    You haven’t stockpiled the Jew Bullets yet? Good gravy, man, the high holidays are only a few months away!

  13. It just gets fugly real quick.

    That’s ’cause we here ‘n tha South got them thar thangs called winders ‘n they open, too. Screens ud keep tha skeeters out iff’n thar was any’s bin sa dry.

  14. Hahahahaha!
    You mo hottah den us ‘n we ‘sub-tropical’.

  15. The_Real_JeffS says:

    It’s been fairly cool the past week or so here, the highs haven’t been all that close to 100, closer to 90.
    But the forecast ain’t looking good.

  16. Mr. Bingley says:

    The way things are going we all may need to use them sooner than that, Ken.

  17. major dad says:

    Hot!? You can’t handle hot! Only those who have been in that wonderful s**thole known as the Middle East know hot. Bing you should go, you’d look stunning with a rag on your head and a goat under each arm.

  18. The_Real_JeffS says:

    major dad, don’t mention goats. Ken will get all worked up. Or jealous of Mr. Bingley.

  19. Mr. Bingley says:

    …a goat under each arm.
    Goats are too scrawny; they’re the Keira Knightlys of the animal world. I’m going to Scotland next month where there are some zaftig sheep.

  20. Yup. Got Bingley written all over them.
    (And for the life of me, I thought those WERE goats under each arm already.)
