It's so hot I cancelled baseball practice, and I never cancel baseball practice.

It's so hot I've been petting my dog with an ice cube in the palm of my hand.

In addition to telling everyone to blast their a/c and stay inside, it might help to give some practical advice like keeping curtains and blinds closed, slow down a little, and find an open fire hydrant

Only Johnny Carson could do justice to the line "It's so hot..." Shame on Brian Lehrer for wasting time airtime! That was some brainstorm Brian and his staff must have had to include this segment on today's show. It's too bad the FCC can't fine a radio station for lack of effort. You mailed it in Brian with this segment. It's a heatwave. They happen every year. It does not signify the end of the world. Brian, try to use some imagination next time and make an effort to put together a worthwhile show.

Just came back from hiking in the palisades in Alpine,NJ. One hour under the trees. It was nice and a treat. It is gorgeous up there and shaded under the canopy of greens.

Rebecca from sleepy hollow (westchester)

It is so hot that I am actually thrilled! I am hopeful days like this will motivate all of us to be more responsible with our energy consumption. Can we imagine if every day of our lives was like this?! and we could not cool off with freon chemicals?! We would all be LETHARGIC for certain.
Hooray! Let's be good citizens today for cooler tomorrows!

When Brian asked the Councilman how hot it is in Woodside earlier in the show, he should have said: "It's so hot, it feels more like I'm sitting fireside."

It's so hot that you leave rice and some vegetables in a bowl on your deck in the morning and can enjoy vegetable rice when you come back from your work.

Thanks,

andy from manhattan

it's so hot that manhattanites finally understand why air-conditioning was invented. in texas.

but nowhere near as hot/steamy as it gets in texas. try adding 90%+ humidity to heat.

Riva Rosenfield from Park slope/Patchogue

Thanks Brian (if you did it) I finally heard that the reason for the suspension of alternate side parking today was because of the Jewish Holiday Shevuhath. I've been asking that the DOT and/or WNYC news dep't participate more fully in NYC's multicultural awareness by announcing the name of the variety of holidays we celebrate here. I am happy to say Satyrious Johnson did just that.

Bravo!

CatBlue from NY

Hola everyone. I agree with the caller from India that this weather is not too bad (yet). I am from Panama and usually by 6:00am it is already over 90F and over 90% humidity. And yes Brian, runners are in Central Park. Why? Because we are CRAZY and that is how we roll. I got to the park at 8:00am and ran the 6-mile loop. It was warm indeed, but not as bad as it will be at 12noon, I am sure.

Stay cool everybody and drink lots of water!

It's so hot I can't think properly.

It's so hot my bread turned to toast without the toaster.

(Margaret has it right, when it's hotter outside ... keep windows mostly closed, block sun ... you can get by w/o A/C ... I have for years ... open in evening, use fans while it's cool ... move slowly, take no unnecessary actions)

Its so hot the trains stopped running, I was an hour late, but I didn't mind because the train had AC whereas my apartment does not - just a weak fan and a block of ice.

Phyllis from Park Slope

It's so hot that we all should be deeply watering all of the young trees that have recently be planted all over the city...

These young trees are in grave danger in such heat waves.

They need deep watering as they are still in a fragile state from being planted in the last few months.

Anna from Manhattan work/CT live

In addition to the mall, a great place to cool off is the public library!! Or at least a bookstore--settle in and read.

Can we also raise the issue of store owners who leave their doors open blowing all the AC onto the sidewalk, wasting energy?

Rick Lanza from Brewster

We need to think about global warming and how everyone using air conditioners to cool there apartments while gone all day is irresponsible. It makes me concerned to hear air conditioners on at night when its cool but people are so self obsessed that they don't consider the consequences of there actions.

Save energy, SUCK IT UP!

Jun. 09 2008 10:39 AM

Ted from Brooklyn

Hi,

I guess I'm one of those ignorant runners who didn't get the memo. I just walked in the door from a run in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. It was fine in the shady spots and in the breeze, but near the Nethermead it was simply an awful curtain of heat. I wouldn't recommend it!!!

Unfortunately some stores have lowered their AC systems and it leaves the store feeling sauna-like and very uncomfortable that it's barely any better, only a little less hot.

You can improvise an 'air conditioner', if you don't have the real thing, by filling a bathtub with cold water and directing a fan over it. The air coming off is genuinely cool. You can also stand in the water, which will lower your overall body temperature pretty effectively.

Can you please ask business owners to close their doors. It is such a waste of energy as well as a symbolic 'raised finger' to the environment.

Thank you!

Bob from Brooklyn near Bklyn college

Your comments about using a regular phone is now being mitigated by the fact that many of the new phone systems (FIOS) and other fiber optic systems or cable phone systems will NOT operate in a power failure as they are dependent on outside power to operate as opposed to our old copper wire phone system that gets its power from a central phone office (Verizon)

Pete from Queens

Regarding your suggestion to have a old-style phone that plugs into the wall phone jack with no power jack required, in case power goes out, your listeners and our municipal leaders should keep in mind that if they convert to FIOS, those phones will not not work because when you hook up FIOS you loose that always powered phone line--no choice.

It's so hot the pigeons come in two varieties: regular and extra crispy.

And of course we overreact to the weather when it's too hot, too cold, too wet, too hazy-It helps keep our minds off whatever real horrors are out there...

It's SO HOT I think

We NEED MORE term limits, like

18 years (3 terms) US Senate, and 9terms in Congress.

It's so Hot, I think EVERY politician who says TERM limits DON't Work should be immediately be terminated... (preferably with BOILING water), or like The Witch in Wizard of Oz.

It's so hot, I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walking.

(That's my favorite Johnny Carson joke.)

The OEM is incorrect. When it's hotter outside than inside, close the windows except for a crack, lower the shades or drape curtains to keep OUT the heat the humidity. Have fans on inside to move the air. you won't feel so bad if you don't have AC. At night when it cools off, open the windows until the next day when the heat strts rising.

Brian, Thank you, thank you, thank you for not mentioning the phony 'heat index.' It's bad math, inaccurate and sensationalist (isn't 99 degrees news enough). Please ask your friends at WNYC to do the same and leave the meteorological hyperbole to the networks!

It's so hot I wonder why New York City Public schools are open today and staff and children are working under these conditions.

Why do New Yorkers get so distressed about weather over 80 degrees? Yes it's hot, but dealing with this weather for a few days is much easier than dealing with the freezing cold for 6 months. If you calm down, you won't be so miserable. I know, telling New Yorkers to calm down is laughable.

(Continuing on with something I forgot in my last "It's so hot...")

I put in my window air conditioner today -- something I am loathe to do, preferring to keep my windows open and get 'fresh' air. I've never put in the A/C this early before!

It's so hot that I think well within our lifetimes it will be too dangerous to go outside in the summer.
