We also had a Hades of a summer - something like 20 days in the 90's + humid with heat index over 100. Yech. We just had 3 good days of rain and finally *perfect* weather for the entire week, and holiday (but not for Nerudite) weekend too! It should bode well for my roadtrip!

We just hit the century mark for the first time Sunday, usually we have already had a month strait of 100 by then. Very mild summer, strange but nice!

Hot and dry here. However, Mr. Weatherman informed me this morning that we've got a week of rain coming, through the weekend. But we need it desperately, so no complaints here.

Cold and raining here, guess I'll hang out and work some OT tonight. I just hope the weekend is a little nicer.

Please send rain north.

Soon, I'll be covering my lawn with green-dyed gravel.

yeah, if you want the full Arizona experience.. turn your oven on when you get home to a nice balmy 500, let it heat up fully, and then open the door and stick your head in..


but it's a dry heat!!!

Really? Michigan has very pleasant summers. Maybe a few days of 90 F plus weather. it has been in the 70's low 80's for a few weeks now, with lows dipping into the upper 50's. Sunny too and lake levels are high.

Of course I rarely leave my lakeside lair to venture into cement city where it is way warm. But ::shrug::

Up here we get... "but it's a dry cold". Which I get the concept of, but I have yet to experience a "wet cold" a la Ontario to get the full picture.

I guess I may be one of those idiots that actually believes in the whole dry heat thing... but I rarely say those words... but there is a *huge difference* between 100F with 95% humidity and 100F with 10% humidity. One summer I was going to a family reunion in Georgia, and at the time I was living in Sacramento. When I left Sacto it was 112F with 10 percent humidity... I was hot, but I could function. I landed in Jacksonville and drove up to Valdosta GA, where it was 98F and 95% humidity. I thought I was going to die. I could only leave the hotel room and it's heavenly air conditioning at night. That sealed the deal on my belief that a "dry heat" is more bearable than the humid hot sticky grossness.

Yup, cold and raining again here. I should move to Arizona. I love the desert climate.

Yeah-

I've gotta say, it's great out here. We even got a MB last night.. what a rush. I out drove the thing home, put my car in the garage, and waited to go to the gym until it had passed. It's amazing to see lightening over mountains, something new for a Texan. I'd have to say this is the best damn state I ever lived in...

Yippee!

Just checked the forecast for the Roadtrip this weekend. Highs in the upper 70's, lows in the mid 60's and no chance of rain till late Sunday. Beer Gardens, here I come.

Umm, what's "MB" and why was it chasing you home?

The sad thing is that I just imagined you saying this very fast in a squirrel voice. I don't think I'll ever hear or see a "wheeee" anymore without thinking of that singing, bouncing squirrel.

Wheeeee!

It's about 90'ish, sunny, HUMID (big surprise)! Have been getting late afternoon storms but they pass quickly. Great beach breezes so this is awesome!

Used to live in the central Plains...talk about funky! It went from summer to winter overnight, it seemed. Wind, wind, wind (sweepin down the plain...). Summer days = walking into a furnace, absolutely no breeze when you need it!

I was just out in vegas.. 102 when i got off the plane.. It felt GREAT!.

the lack of humidity makes 102 feel like 92.

dry heat is so un-pc..

I'd say it is "moisture-deprived" heat :)

i'll argue the dry heat/wet heat till i'm blue in the face.

i'll agree....110+ is hot. and hot is hot. BUT. (which in az means a heat index of 100.

this summer it got to 99 and the heat index was pushing 120. That's hot.. that's unbearable.. that's why 600 people died in chicago a couple years ago.

the most horrible heat i've ever felt was in 1995, it recorded 107 at the local airport and the heat index was 135.

yes bturk.. i'm asking for it :)

I totally understand the wet cold/dry cold thing.

I loved winters in Sudbury, Ontario. -30C degrees, but beautifully sunny. If you dressed properly, it was great. I walked to work year round up there. I did have to start the car once a day though, just to make sure it didn't freeze solid.

Winters in Toronto suck - it may only be -10C or so, but it's damp, and grey. I feel much colder here than I did up north.

It's shaping up for a wet and muddy winter over here. Autumn turned up at the weekend (although it's a summery 23 deg. C. right now and projected to continue for the rest of the week). Last night, it was raining so much that I was completely wet through in a minute, even with my rain gear on. By the time I'd made it to the pub (10 minutes), my clothes weighed twice as much as I did. And it was very cold rain...

Rain good. Central Florida is still under watering restrictions, and I haven't had to turn on the irrigation system in four months. Besides, I'm trying to plant a Bermuda and Centipedegrass lawn in the back yard from seed, to replace the St. Augustine eaten by chinch bugs last winter.

Rain bad. In Central Florida, stuff just grows. Including weeds. What was an empty patch of dirt will fill with weeds literally in a day or two. In the areas I'm seeding, I have to pull new weeds EVERY DAY. They grow that fast, seriously.

Weather forecast ... usually looks like this about now.

Monday: scattered afternoon thunderstorms 33°/22° 92°/71°

Tuesday: scattered afternoon thunderstorms 33°/22° 92°/71°

Wednesday: scattered afternoon thunderstorms 33°/22° 92°/71°

Thursday: scattered afternoon thunderstorms 33°/22° 92°/71°

Friday: scattered afternoon thunderstorms 33°/22° 92°/71°

Saturday: scattered afternoon thunderstorms 33°/22° 92°/71°

Sunday: scattered afternoon thunderstorms 33°/22° 92°/71°

Humidity, you ask? Try 95%.

You just described the reason that I don't live in Florida. That and the highest point is around 1,000 feet, which is too weird for someone who has never lived more than a few hours from huge mountain ranges.
