We have record rain for the month of July and there's over a week left. Basements are flooded everywhere and entire neighborhoods are unaccessable due to flooding. Still seems kind of minor compared to the winter weather around here but it's pretty bad.

Not a lot of rain here. We could use some. I played golf this morning and teed off at 7:30am. Early for me, but helped to beat the heat. We were through by 10:30.

It is so hot and humid here, at least subjectively speaking. I don't suppose the *official* temperatures are over 95 or so.

It isn't raining today, but quite a bit of rain is predicted if Tropical Storm Bonnie comes our way tomorrow evening and/or Sunday. That should cool things off a little (though of course I don't wish any flooding on anyone).

Where are you?

We have some impressive floods right here - but not really any rain. Just a heckuva lot of water coming down the river!!!!

I'm in east-central Wisconsin. Our flooding is not river related. It's from several days of torrential rain saturating the ground. The sewer systems and such around here are unable to handle so much rain causing streets to flood as well as basements. It's not something that should last long however. If the rain stops then it should be back to normal in a couple days.

It is overcast today and temps are not expected to get above 100. I will take it.

Forecast is for temp to reach 101 F today, but clear skies. I'm debating the wisdom of riding the motorcycle to work this afternoon, but it's only a 10-minute ride.

I wear full Kevlar mesh riding gear which is comfortable when in motion to the low 90's.

I would debate the idea of going to w*rk at all ...

(Just had to get that in from an old retired guy - and yes, I did ride bikes in my younger years)...

No fair Nords. You live in paradise. I'm thinking about checking into a rental home I hear might become available soon next door to T-Al. Hear the weather's pretty nice there most of the year. Oh, and DH and I would promise not to bring barky dogs or grow weed. Just a few mellow indoor cats

I sure was and I will again starting in about 4-5 months. I'll take 90 and humid with tornados, hail, and flooding over winter weather any time. I'd rather move to San Diego where it's nearly perfect year round.

San Diego sure is an expensive place to live, it seems to me. You might enjoy moving south to someplace with a reasonable cost of living, though.

How much is your house going to be when you put it on the market

The problem then becomes that you're living in National City... or Tijuana!

I always enjoyed San Diego's low humidity and milder weather, but it's still too cold. I remember one afternoon shivering on Coronado Beach in sweatshirts & long pants. In August.

Not much, that's for sure! I bought it for $160K in 2002, and don't expect to clear much more for it when I sell it. And if you don't like mine, Frank wants to sell his, too. Property taxes on my house are only $8xx (I don't have the figures with me, but I am thinking $841/year?).

104.7 degrees at my house (well outside that is).

But hey, the high on Friday is only supposed to be 100 with a chance of scattered thunderstorms.
