Too Darned Hot!

A favorite dance number by Ann Miller from Kiss Me, Kate.

This came to mind because the always oppressive weather conditions here are getting worse. This chart shows the monthly average for highs and lows here in Cebu City:


You wouldn't think a few degrees would make a difference -- the daily highs are only up about five degrees or so from January -- but with the high humidity, it really does matter. And there's another several degrees to look forward to, according to this chart, before it begins to moderate again.

I arrived in the Philippines on June 1 last year and here in Cebu at mid-month, so this is new to me. Which leads me to want to sing along with Ann Miller.


  1. I didn't think it could get worse than when we were there.

  2. It would seem that way, wouldn't it? But when you were here in February was during the (relatively) cool season, as the graph shows.

    I really noticed it when I got back from Zambo in mid-March..
