10 Things You Need for an Unexpected Heat Wave

As you may have heard, this week Los Angeles hit record highs of nearly 115 degrees. And let me be the first to tell you: it’s bullshit.

But by having the following ten things on hand, at least you’ll be prepared should such an event happen in your town:

  1. An unlimited supply of popsicles. Seriously, they’re really refreshing.
  2. Air conditioning. Obv.
  3. Barring air conditioning, try purchasing an exhaust fan.
  4. A frozen snowball! Have your east coast relatives send one out.
  5. A winning personality, so that you can find a friend with a pool.
  6. Flip flops and daisy dukes. Or, comfort in your own nudity.
  7. HBO.
  8. Electricity. Do not be late in paying your bills leading up to an unexpected heat wave.
  9. A colorful vocabulary. “It’s so hot” gets sort of old by day five.
  10. Your sense of humor, lest you become a murderous statistic.

    It was 80 out in my neck of the woods and I was bitching about that! 115 is just obscene. Good luck and eat some Otter Pops. :)

    HAHAHAA deal with it, LA. You get perfect weather year-round (most of the time) and I live in New Orleans where the summers are just obscene. But right now? It’s 78 degrees outside and ACTUALLY FEELS LIKE 78 DEGREES! That is a beautiful thing.

    Sorry. Schadenfreude is pretty powerful.
