today is the second day over 90 degrees. Too hot to do anything but lie on the sofa and read. It's supposed to cool off a bit by Tuesday. I'm checking the weather where I plan to move to after retirement. It was over 90 there yesterday, but cooled off today, and overnight lows were in the fifties, so you can store "coolth" in your house during the night to moderate the temperature next day. It's still much warmer than that here, even at 11 PM. Just for fun, I looked up Juneau, Alaska, the place I always tell myself I will move to if I want to live somewhere it really never gets hot. Tomorrow's high is supposed to be 68, and all-time records for the rest of the month are in the high 70's. Ahhhh.....

Today will be day 15-in-a-row over 100 degrees. Expecting 100s all week. I'm vacationing in Colorado next weekend. I expect unseasonably hot weather to arrive about then...

It's "mid-summer" here... rain and 64F for the last two days. I don't think we've had four days over 75F in the last six weeks. Just before that, of course, we had 95 and no rain for a week, and our tomatoes shrivelled; now, they have no time to catch up. If we don't get 3-4 days of consecutive fine weather in the next 10 days, summer will have been a total bust. Same for much of the northern half of Europe.

As of July 30, we were having a "mild" summer; we reached 100 exactly twice up through and including July 30.

We've had 23 straight over 100 since. Is it October yet?

Seems it feels like October to DH as he's in Wyoming. He said it was around 70 degrees.

He shouldn't tell me about that since I'm enduring the TX heat.

I didn't think that I would ever weigh-in on this thread but... Right now in Des Moines, Iowa, it is 90 --"Humidity 56%, feels like 98." We spent a very inactive afternoon, exploring the "Bridges of Madison County" and I am exhausted. This is terrible.

You "win." We're sitting on 102, 26% humidity (dewpoint 61) -- and pretty much no breeze (reporting 3 MPH at the moment)...

Ah, those poor Texans...

Temperature here 104 today. Forecast says going higher than 110 in the next couple of days.

Again, people, move to TX, not AZ. You will thank me.

Heaven help the person that got me in a sidecar and took me on a ride like that. After I was able to stand up straight and my eyeballs slowed down in my head there would be a butt kickin' goin' on.

I reckon that was what this rider wanted to do to his driver.
