    No, there is no such thing as global warming. The FF companies told me so...

    Now I remember why I was seriously considering talking with my HVAC company last year about adding A/C to my system. Seem to have more of this evil heat each year. But at least the humidity's not a problem. Open windows at night tend to cool the place down some. Maybe this year I'll make that call. I don't think this is gonna get any better over time. Rick

    I think the PNW has migrated out here. Been cool and rainy for a week.

    What a difference a year makes. We ended June 2012 @ 106 degrees and .23 inches of rain for the entire month. June 2013 we had 8.79 inches of rain and a high of 75 yesterday.

    Yes, East/West coast weather has flipped this year. Our garden is loving it.

    I've been sort of following the news on that heat. I sweat just thinking about it. I'm also reminded that 125 was recorded during this year's Bicycle Race Across America. That is tough riding in that heat.

    The map also lies because we were nowhere near the 78 is shows. Our high was 70 and it is 64 right now. Feels great!

    108 today. it has been over 100 all week. We usually get a few weeks over 100 every year, a few weeks of freeze. Overnights are forecast to be in the mid 60's next week. I'll be able to shut off the AC and open a window at night.

    It finally cooled off here today, only 78 for a high. This is the first day I do not have to open my windows at night. I do not have A/C. It is supposed to be cool for a few days, and then head back up to about 90 here again this weekend and into next week.

    Likewise here. Too chilly for me. We never broke 70 yesterday. 57 in the mornings. This marine air is supposed to burn off and return to golden orbs by tomorrow. Me and my tomatoes will welcome them.

    We've had tropical moisture/humidity with relatively normal heat here in the mid-Atlantic. Gardens, flowers, etc....all are growing at record paces..
    That extreme heat is miserable, I hope you guys get a break soon out west. At the same time, I hope like crazy that heat doesn't make it east.....I hate 100+ degree days...

    80s with high humidity here. I spent yesterday hiking and today outdoors at my second job. I'm exhausted. I could sleep for the rest of the weekend.
