And Still Climbing

  1. Temps like that are why my husband and I bought a house on the Western side of Lake Erie (the side that does NOT suffer from Lake Effect Snow). This morning, it was actually cool here when I walked the dog. Even now, it's just pleasantly warm.
    Same in the winter - it generally doesn't get all that cold (not like MN or MI). The lake tends to moderate temperature swings. We're previously lived in SC. Hot, humid, and snake-ridden.
    We moved for family reasons, but the weather is a big plus.

    1. I grew up outside of Toledo and we are just west of there, it still gets plenty hot but it usually doesn't last very long.

    2. This is our first year living in South Texas, and it hasn't been as cool as 90 for a daytime high here since early May. 102 degrees on Mother's Day was a shocker, but it's ranged up as high as 106 on occasion since then. And no, it's not a 'dry' heat like Arizona. I sure don't miss winter in the northeast, but this is just brutal.

    3. Toll-dough. Am I pronouncing that correctly?

  2. Yeah, it's Summertime... Here on the Eastern edge of the Virginia Piedmont, we've had 90's for most of July, frequent, sometimes Violent Thunderstorms, and 105% Humidity most of the Time. Idiot libtards squealing about "Glooowbull Waaarmming!" in what is a very Normal summer. What is Noticeable is how if one leaves a Wooded, Hilly Area for a "Heat Island" like a Commercial Strip/Warehouse area, you immediately "Feel the Heat", 5 to 10 Degrees higher.

    The (Lazy) bunch of Draft Horses that infest my Backyard are Sweating so Hard their Backs turn White from the Salt, and in the Evening there is some definite Pushing and Shoving to get to Me when I take the Garden Hose to Wash them Down. The Poor little things have No Clue what their Lives would be like without the Diesel Tractor....

  4. Heat is a construct of the white male patriarchy and all temperatures will be redistributed in the spirit of egalitarian equity. (sarc)
    Looks like rain coming in after strong winds and the drought might be over.
    Corn and other crops looking good despite no rain for all of June.

    1. Rain here right now, we have had a fair amount of rain this summer but we needed a little more. Hot, humid, lots of rain? The corn is going nuts
