    First let me say I hate the hot weather. To me a nice day is 70 degrees and sunny. I can live with 75 but that is pushing it. So far today the temp is at 97F and rising. On a normal year we have about 7 days where it reaches 90f. So far this year I think we are at something like 16 days in the 90's and today is suppose to top 100+.

    For those of you that are use to it Wow I praise ya because I could never live anywhere that it is like that all the time. The air conditioner is cranking so far but I like to get out once in awhile and with this heat it makes it imposible. I went out for a few hours last night to my daughters softball game and died. The humidity is nuts here.

    Sorry, Just needed to vent. I better go start my snow dance now. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon7.gif>

    Careful what you wish for...
    Did you see that post a couple of weeks back about SNOW in Calgary Alberta Canada?
    I don't know who it was, but if you two got together you should end up with a pretty nice middle of the road kind of day.

    Popdawg, That would be nice if we could meet in the middle with them. A lot of the times we get our cold fronts from ou good neighbors in Canada but that hasn't been happening this year.

    Hey Jill, whats up with you canadians this year. Share some of your cool weather with us would ya please. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    I just went out to refill the birdbath/wishing well. Yesterday when I went out there to fill it there was a wasp swimming in it. I thought it was stuck but it was just hanging out. Today there were 3 of them having a pool party. They are actually just floating and hanging out. I didn't know wasps did that.

    Ummmm, 98F and rising!
    :eek: :eek:

    We finally got a break in the heat here in the Midwest this week. 90's all summer long and today in the 70's. Had the house all open last night and had to close the windows because it was too cold. Wow!

    Here in Park City, at 7000 feet, Fall is slowly getting started. I had to pull on a jacket this morning for the first time since May. As for snow, bring it on. The more the better. Anyone else ready to go skiing?

    Eeeeks, 107F!!! Hope we never see that! It looks like it peeked out here at 100F and now has dropped down into the 90's. Better get a jacket on.

    Brian, I love Fall! One of my favorite seasons. Don't ski though. Tried it once, never got off the bunny hill. Had one of the best times of my life and never laughed so hard. The girl I was with fell off the tow bar and got all tangled up in her ski's. The bad part was I was so sore I could barely move for a week. It was fun though.

    Greetings from Marvelous Marin County, just north of San Francisco. The temperature is 72 degrees, no humidity and its bright and sunny. The fog is creeping over the coastal hills. Ah, the beauty of it all!

    No idea what temp it is here, my thermostat only goes to 90 with room for maybe another 7 or 8 degrees to the right of it. It isn't stuck over there tho, if I check at 2 am or something like that it'll be to the left of that 90.

    Well, it's on the warm side anyway.

    Yeah - I was staying in Manhattan a couple of weeks ago. Got drenched in a big Friday night lightning show. BTW, we don't get rain here in the summer.

    I grew up in the humidity in the D.C. area, but, Wow, when you're not used to it, it really hits you when you go there.

    Autumn can't be too far away. Patience.

    Three days of dry weather and they declare a drought. Three days of 70+ and it's a heatwave! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    You would not believe how much rain we've just had. While shaving yesterday I discovered I'm growing GILLS!!!

    I live about 45 minutes from go60guy ... the only difference is that it's about 90 here in the shade (Vacaville, California).. today it seemed like the whole internet was convulsing and I wonder how much of that had to do with the heat and localized power outages... and.. people didn't really seem to be shopping today online or off. One day I hope to make enough money online to be able to live in a place like marin county California. Doesn't get much better than that.

    Last night at 4AM I was thinking how this place felt like a BARN and that the furnace must be out! Then when I looked at the thermostat, it said 75F. I guess 20 degrees cooler than what you're used to feels cold no matter what the actual temperature is...

    But yeah, fall is coming. The hibiscus are in bloom, and also all the burr-plants I'd been ignoring now have sharp treacherous burrs all over them. At least all the bird calls sound the same so they haven't started beating it toward the southern regions yet...

    Fall is my favorite season for the colors but in Mich. it gets too cold way too fast. From 90 to 70, that's BS!!! It's way too hard to get used to and it seems like 50 when the drop is that sudden. In a couple of months that wretched sn*w will be back and I'm still here.

    Bryan, you can have that fluffy white junk. If I had a way to truck it out there you would probably get a delivery sometime around January. Skiing, brrrr + physical effort! Yecch... I'll sit here relatively comfortably with the furnace blowing on my back and sell the skis and ski wax to all you outdoorsy types. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon38.gif>

    Just when I think this window is too cold to sit in front of, someone goes and mentions actually going *outside* in that winter junk! Brrrrr.... Suddenly it seem warm in here after all! <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon38.gif>

    Live right off of Lake St Clair in MI so we get the lake breezes. Lot's of rain lately so the grass has got to be cut. I'll see if I can bribe the neighbor kid to do it. Not bad this summer but the humidity has been real high. The Woodward Ave "Dream Cruise" is this weekend whhich always seems to roast the million+ people out to see the classic cars from all over the US. Anyone got an old 62 Corvette I can borrow for the weekend?

    I'm in Tennessee, low 90s for high for the next week. Me personally i like 4 seasons. I just moved here after living in Orlando for 12 years where its always HOT and HUMID <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon6.gif> for about 11 months out of the year. I can't wait for the fall, then winter for some snow.
