I like the heat, I can't complain either unless I'm in a suit and loafers. That's the beauty of summer here in ny, 99.9% of folk here prefer pool parties and bbqs over shoveling driveways. I'll probably find myself moving south in a year or so as well.

Wow it sounds very hot in NYC.
Too bad it is raining here in Ireland as always.
Good day in the park would be nice or on the beach.

When I look at my laptop screen, it is all sunny and hot.
When I look out the window, the sun is shining not.

Ah, maybe this way of thinking is why the country is broke and going down the drain. No work ethic.

It wasn't even that hot out today. Plus it is cooler for them because they are way up in the air, get stronger breazes and are by the water.

Truthfully, this is sort of an example of why things aren't going so well. In the 30s with much more primitive technology the ESB went up in 18 months. Now with better technology and equipment we take forever to do things.

Anyways, hopefully they'll get back to work soon

That's the most ignorant thing I've read all day. But a discussion of why that is so moronic would take this thread offtopic, so I'll refrain.
