Dear LA Times,

A "Heat Wave" is defined as an extended period of hot weather.

1.5 days of low 90's in the Valley is NOT a heat wave! If it is, what is 5 days?

ew, gross

Yay!!!! Now i can hang my clothes out to dry.

Yuck, anything over 75 sucks!

oh noes! 3-day "heat wave"! can I haz AC?

sounds like nice long weekend for everyone, I'm going to the beach!!! Thank God for a great place to live.

I love it...on the weekends. On the weekdays I have to work in it, then it's not as fun.

wendall, isn't that a little much? you do realize the heat contributes to smog don't you?

I hate heat waves. I prefer cold snaps.
