in the mid 80's today, because it is cloudy and storming. We generally have temps in the high 90's, low 100's....and in august/sept it gets really hot, generally at 100 or above, and stays that way.

I think being on the coast makes a 90 degree day much more comfortable. We'd go live with my cousins for about a month every summer when I was a kid and the temps in KY were the same as at their house, but they got those ocean breezes and we had still, humid air that felt like being in a sauna. Who I feel bad for is those folks in-land in the south. 100+ with no breeze and muggy air. Yikes!

98 degrees with 99% humidity is fairly unbearable. ...our temps average that, and we have high humidity....sucks

Yeah, the humidity just kicks everything up a notch. We're surrounded by the great lakes, and most of the time we're fine, but we're halfway between the equator and North Pole, and I swear, we get the worst of both places at some point each year. LOL It makes clothes shopping very complicated.

It hit 105 here on Saturday and Sunday which tied the all time ever record in these parts for any date and was last reached and set in 1918. That's without the humidity and heat index factored in, just straight temperature. Add in heat index and it was in the hundred teens.

Luckily it's dropped back down into the area of reasonable (upper 80s to low 90s) as of yesterday, so I finally got to cut the grass which was getting rather tall and ugly.

I don't know which I hate more, mowing or triple digit weather. Oh, wait...I really hate mowing more!

Well it was a tad cooler today, still have the humidity, but it was cloudy, threatening rain (never came) and a good breeze, so did get a couple hours of yard work done... trimmed a crepe myrtle that is gone wild and cleaned up some vinca vine which if I don't stay on top of it, it'll overtake the house LOL

And as for mowing, well Thomas came last night... so not hating mowing anymore !

We got that storm that missed you, Dee. Huge, huge amount of rain. I'm thinking about 7 inches in 2 hours with lightning hitting every few seconds for the longest time.

must have moved up from Nashville... they were having horrible storms last night and confirmed tornado last night... lots of damage.... Hoptown just always seems to be out of harms way.

but Karen, I would have enjoyed 7" of rain... we are so dry, dry, dry. don't understand why the grass hasn't gone dormant!

I like mowing, my lawn tractor has cruise control and a beer holder, , and I like hot weather, but this rain has GOT to stop. I absolutely cannot stand cold weather.
