This year has been surprising everyone with some extreme weather conditions. It seems that Texas was just recently frozen into its coldest temperatures ever and residents had icicles hanging from their ceiling fans. Right now, the Pacific Northwest of the US and British Columbia, Canada are getting baked under a dome of once-in-a-millennium hot temperatures. The heat was as high as 115F in Medford and 107F in Portland, both in Oregon; meanwhile, Lytton, BC registered a high of 116F—a temperature that has not been seen in the region since the beginning of records.
Such temperatures are extremely dangerous in the parts of US and Canada where the general highs are usually not exceeding 60-70 degrees. Many people are unprepared for such a climate, as even air conditioning is not a common appliance in their homes. However scary the historic heatwave may be, people are still out there to report and share what it’s like to experience (and survive) such an extremity, and some of them are actually too funny.
