Environment Canada tells me that it was 32.9 degrees today at the airport. The airport's a lot further away from the Stampede Grounds than the rest of the city, so considering the amount of people at Stampede Park it was probably in the vicinity of 40 degrees. At the movie theatre where I work (in the 'burbs) it was 38 degrees.

Good God.

It's been hotter than hell, more or less, for the last two weeks...(which have also been host to the annual Calgary Exhibition & Stampede, held every year since 1912)...no doubt contributing to the storm that hit town on Thursday night.

I don't know if CRZ can back me up on this but here in the Bay Area, it has been way below normal. It is freaking July and ain't even hot outside, it's weird.

I agree here. Hasn't been over 100 F in the Louisville area yet this year and has been over 90 only a couple times.

Here in sw Kansas we have only been over 100 four times so far and it has actually rained quite a bit. Way below normal for us.

Obviously, here it's been consistently in the 100s for quite a while, with some 110+ days. But, the good news is that it's only the last couple of weeks that the humidity has been up at all. (110 is still tolerable if the humidity is only 8%.) We were still on evap cooling til then. And it's still cooling down decently overnight (into the 80s). This is doing pretty well for us!

Clearly, the Day After Tomorrow is upon us.

It's been relatively unseasonably cool in my neck of the woods, but we just finished a mother of a humid weekend that (of course) I spent outside at work. So in summation, bring on the snow.

It's been hotter than hell here, not helped at all by the fact our AC's at work are broken, and the refrigeration unit in our walk-in cooler died yesterday.

Freeway is right...and to quote Elaine Marie Benes, "and the heat...MY GOD, the heat."

It's been around 90 every day for the past four or 5 days...humidity makes it feel like it's closer to 100...and if you're down on the Stampede Grounds, as I was last night, it feels more like 110.

My shins have been sweating.

But complain? Heck no...give me this over winter any day!

The heat isn't so bad as long as you don't have to move.

Baltimore-Washington hasn't even sniffed 95 yet this year, much less 100. Yesterday, it rained all day and barely hit 72. It's been a very temperate summer comparatively.

I'm not complaing at all about the lack of a heat wave so far this summer (he says as he pays his Utility Bills) - my various hot peppers could use a good blast of heat though - they are way behind last year's crop

Very comfortable summer so far, with only 1 day over 90 and a lot of days that haven't even hit 80 recently. Of course, my money is on the heat wave from hell to hit next week and the DNC to cause some sort of blackouts/heat related traffic riots to occur when it gets to a hundred a day with 90% humidity.

Wouldn't the DNC alone be good for at least 10 degrees.

It's been BURTAL here, as Mrs. JJD was commenting just this morning that this seems like a much hotter summer than normal, but it could be bad for us because we moved away from the water. Saturday night it was too hot to SLEEP. It's supposed to be worse toward the end of this week, with forecasts in the low 90s, which NEVER happens here.

The mountains of North Carolina are a balmy 81 degrees with 5 mph breezes. Most comfortable summer I can ever recall. This alone makes the recent move worth the trouble.

Those below us in the Piedmont are getting hammered with rainstorms and flooding, a condition I'm tickled to have escaped.

North-north Scottsdale, a little up the Pinnacle Peak area foothills. (Should have been Cave Creek / Carefree, 'cept Scottsdale has better lawyers.) Monsoons are great from here -- the lightning shows all across the valley are great. And when we get one of those big dust storms coming around from the east, you can just watch the whole thing roll across the valley. (Much better than when I lived in North Carolina, where, rather than watching the weather, you watched the weather channel while waiting to be done unto by the weather!)

I do feel for those of you in places where you're not expecting the heat. We're hotter, but at least we're prepared for it!
