Why, it’s almost as if it’s July again. Why does this keep happening?!?

Meanwhile, here in North Carolina, it’s rain, rain, every day.

Man-made globalwarming, climate change, global climate disruption/Bush-Cheneys fault.

What we need are some common sense temperature-control laws.

And once again, the supposedly knowledgeable people are surprised at the “unexpected” surge in temperatures as the world moves past the summer solstice, and the physics of thermodynamics continues to work its logical progression.

Large land masses undergo much greater extremes of temperature change than large expanses of surface water like oceans. Temperature extremes do not happen in mid-Atlantic or mid-Pacific.

What’s so stifling?

a little 90+ weather and we are having hissy fits.

For me, I actually love this stuff.

i've had TWO dry days in a row. Might even get to mow the lawn tonite.

If we don't get T-storms.

We had a substantial storm yesterday afternoon. Epic Fail Lawn Service could probably mow the front late today, because it drains to the street, but there’s still standing water in the back, and I can hear the grass growing with the windows closed!

Although it’s been hot and muggy in Rochester, NY, we’re getting a much needed dry spell. We needed to dry out some as we got drenched in June and the beginning of July and had floods! Our gardens are so lush now and we’re going to get a ton of tomatoes and peppers this year!

There were some hysterical posts on the AccuWeather forum the other day...some college girl was whining about the heat in the northeast along these lines: “I’ll have you know it has been over 90 degrees in Connecticut for three consecutive days...that meets official meteorological criteria for a heat wave. That is really hot, and you could show a little compassion for people in New England.” In short order; this cry from the ‘waaaahhhhbulance’ summoned the folks from Texas and Oklahoma, and fun commenced. The poor thing was pummeled.

Heat in July!

I too have observed this possible correlation. I think a government grant could provide answers to why this happens and what we can do to solve it. I have heard the southern hemisphere has solved the July-August heat problem.

Yeah, I went out this past Sunday to see if if the yard was mow-able, and sunk in up past my ankle in the backyard.

"Never Mind", I said approximately. (what I really said isn't repeatable)

Southern Wisconsin weighing in: I’ll take this temporary heat - we needed to dry out, too! 12” of rain BEYOND what was normal for June this season; it was brutal!

T-storms moving in Friday night, a cool and sunny weekend ahead.

This is the year my A/C went out, of course - but we’re surviving with fans and a small window unit up in the bedroom. I’m fine with the heat if I can sleep at night. :)

Out to finish mowing...started last night in the cool of the evening until the ‘skeeters chased me in!

Believe it or not, we've had too much rain here in NC for the gardens to do much. Tomatoes are rotting on the vine because of the damp. We've gotten a few squash, a few cukes. Maybe a double handful of cherry tomatoes, and that's about it.

Except the corn. I drove past a corn field the other night, and jeez! I bet most of it was 8' tall or better. Good year for it, good year for hay, too. Farm animals will eat well this winter.

I lived in MS for two consecutive summers w/o any a/c. Couldn’t afford it. I’m not feeling particularly compassionate. Sorry.

Neither of my parents, who have lived in MS since childhood, grew up with any a/c. My dad’s family didn’t have any electricity at all till the 1950’s.

Nope, not particularly compassionate.

Chick needs to deal with it.

I need to mow my lawn too. The grass has been to wet - for a change - the past several days. We had about 2" yesterday. I may need to bail the back yard.

Ditto that for NC. Other than the past couple of days when it's been 92-ish, temps are 5-10 deg below normal.

Paper says it's "Average". They haven't blamed it on GW yet, but if this horrific (/sarc) heat keeps up, it won't be long before that story gets trotted out.

Yup. Even if you have a/c, if you leave your house between early May and late September, every single day is a bad hair/makeup day. That’s just a given in the deep south.

This global warming is very concerning. Heck, just a few months ago it was so cold that I had to run my furnace! Now it is so hot that I have to run my AC! At this pace, we will burst into flames in just a few short months.
