The heat index here in SE Wisconsin just hit 100! That breaks down to about 88 degrees at 84% humidity. Bleh...fortunately I'm in an enclosed area with lots of equipment that requires controlled environments.
We in the great state of KS (in the SW part) are lolling around at 102 - 105 give or take and thinking it could and has been worse. Being from NE Ohio I sympathize with the humidity. We bake like mad most summers but unlike many of you, expect to.
Mid-90's with a heat index hitting close to or above 100, assuming we don't get an early evening rain shower which can cool us down to the upper 80's.

It was a legit 100ºF here, and it's only supposed to be hotter tomorrow. Wheeeee. -_- It's gotten to the point that our other reporter's trying to think of anywhere to go that's air-conditioned, and I had to suggest IKEA.
After last night's storms only 90 today but humid. Back to around 100 by Saturday. Seriously we are just used to it as it is where we live but how do you all from areas not used to this cope. It does take gettig used to, especially mentally.
I usually participate in programs where you pick an ornament from a tree. The ornament is from a needy child, and has on it what they need/want for Christmas. All in all it doesn't even add up to much.
