Moab Utah - 106 degrees!!!
Idaho - still 102/103
Northeastern Oregon - still topping 100s.

The crazy thing is that Portland OR is seeing 100s!* Seattle is suffering.

It was only in the 90s when we left Texas.

I hope you enjoyed your visit. Were you accused of bringing the weather with you? [Check that lady's luggage!]

Summer hot weather comes from the east in the NW, typically in August. Wouldn't surprise me if it started in the Gulf, moisture wrung out over the Rockies, temp cranked up passing over the western deserts. It wouldn't surprise me if the temp backed down in Texas after the system passed.

Moab Utah was REALLY hot in the summer when I was a kid (long, long ago).

Southern Idaho is irrigated desert, Boise and Twin Falls are summer hot spots.

Northeastern Oregon, it depends. Pendleton is on the eastern edge of a high desert that starts just east of the Cascade Mtns and gets quite hot in the summer. Just to the east, of Pendleton up Cabbage Patch Hill, are the Blue Mtns - a lot cooler. Ontario is east of the Blues, on the Idaho border, weather is impacted by southern Idaho.

Portland typically has 6 days over 100 each year, the warm air comes down the Columbia River Gorge from the desert. Hot weather came early this year so I expect that there will be more than 6.

Seattle, because of the Sound, rarely gets weather over 100, they complain a lot over 85. I don't think it got over 95 this round. South and east of the city, away from the water, add 5 degrees until you hit the western foothills of the Cascades.

NW beaches really chill down when the weather is hot inland - fog that doesn't burn off until late morning (if then). It is a warm day when the temp is 75.

Re: Hot Hot Hot

The good news is that with all this heat, nobody's wearing much.

The bad news is that with all this heat, nobody's wearing much.

The worst thing I might ever have to see is a woman, roughly 60 years old and 350lbs, in a (thankfully) one piece bathing suit, mowing her lawn. :P :P :P :P

I'd bet the neighbors would each ante up a chunk of cash to pay for a lawn service to keep her indoors.

Now the 20-something at the grocery store that was wearing a couple of pieces of tissue paper? I'll bet half the guys in the store just went for milk and ended up with a cartful of groceries they didnt need.

There ya go SGeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. ..

Re: Hot Hot Hot

Yes Moab is hot. *Most of the west is hot. *Central CA is very hot. *FIL said it was 118 there a couple of days ago. *Yuck! *Makes our 104 seem like nothing. *St. George is going to be 105-112 all week. *The yard is getting crispy...even with sprinklers since we have had no rain in weeks and won't for a while. *

And this is not even the hot part of the year yet. *That would be August.

Still, I will take 104 and 15% RH to 98 with 90% RH anyday. *I was out doing yard work all day on Saturday when it was 104-105 yet survived to toil another day. *

You can have the rain and clouds of the Pac. NW. *The midwest is no better than the mid-South...still hot and muggy all summer. *The difference is about 100 degree temp. swings in the mid-west vs the south from winter to summer. *When we lived in Northern Il. it was normal to have -20 to -30 several days during the winter followed by 100+ in the summer with high humidity. *Great mosquito breeding weather. *Yuck! * *Very few of the little beggars here. *I can actually spend time out side in the summer without dripping in repellent.

My reading material seems boring and it is too hot to lay down and read. Greg is watching Deadwood on TV. Yuck.
I've offered to take her skinny dipping, in the dark, in water that is 55 degrees. I usually get the tongue.

Re: Hot Hot Hot

But I will!!!

I'm going to see if that works with my wife. I spent all week warming up the pool water, think I'll drain it and refill with some ice water. If this works, I'm going to write a book. "How to get the tongue without begging!"

Somebody had to go there.

Re: Hot Hot Hot

Here's my contribution, fill in your own state

YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN your state here IN JULY WHEN. . .
*
* * * * * *The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out
* * * * * *of the ground.
*
* * * * * *The trees are whistling for the dogs.
*
* * * * * *The best parking place is determined by shade
* * * * * *instead of distance.
*
* * * * * *Hot water now comes out of both taps.
*
* * * * * *You can make sun tea instantly.
*
* * * * * *You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty
* * * * * *good branding iron.
*
* * * * * *The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little
* * * * * *chilly.
*
* * * * * *You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to
* * * * * *steer your car.
*
* * * * * *You discover that you can get sunburned through your
* * * * * *car window.
*
* * * * * *You actually burn your hand opening the car door.
*
* * * * * *You break into a sweat the instant you step outside
* * * * * *at 7:30 a.m.
*
* * * * * *Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get
* * * * * *knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook
* * * * * *to death?"
*
* * * * * *You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
*
* * * * * *The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to
* * * * * *do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.
*
* * * * * *Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them
* * * * * *from laying boiled eggs.
*
* * * * * *The cows are giving evaporated milk.
*
* * * * * *Ah, what a place to call home. . . God Bless Our State!!

Re: Hot Hot Hot

This one is a couple years old but here goes...
A farmer from the wheat fields of Kansas dies and goes to hell. Once there, the Devil notices that this farmer is not suffering like the rest of his inhabitants. He checks his gauges and sees that it's 95 degrees and about 80% humidity.

So he goes to the farmer and asks why he's so happy. The farmer replies," I like it here. It's just like plowing my fields in June."

Unhappy with the farmer's response, the devil goes back to his controls and turns the temperature up to 105 degrees and 90% humidity.

After making the adjustment, the devil goes looking for the farmer. Finding him just as happy as can be, the Devil frustratingly asks the farmer again why he's so happy. "This is even better now! It's like pulling weeds in the fields during July!" says the farmer.

The Devil, now quite upset and deciding to make the farmer really suffer, returns to his controls and cranks the! heat up to 115 degrees and the humidity to 100%.

"Now we'll see if that farmer is smiling!" he thinks as he goes looking for the farmer again. Finding him sitting on the floor happy as ever, the Devil is madder than before. When he asks the farmer why he's happy now,the farmer answers, "This is great, it's just like driving the combine in August!"

That was enough for the Devil. Running back to his controls, he turns the temperature down to a freezing 45 degrees below zero. Within a matter of minutes, the pools of molten brimstone begin to ice over.

"Let's see what that farmer has to say about this," snickers the Devil to himself. To his surprise, the Devil returns to find the farmer
running around and jumping for joy, yelling at the top of his lungs:

"The Chiefs won the Super Bowl!

I can't believe it!

The Chiefs won ! the Super Bowl!"
