    So how's your weather?

    The official thermometer has been (and usually does) bouncing from the 70's to 90's and everywhere in between. Today we'll be in the upper 90's with some areas pushing the 100 mark. And this next week will be back in the 80's range again.
    I'm sure most of you would probably laugh at the 100 degrees with little or no humidity, but around here it's not a regular thing and most Washingtonians can't handle it well. Especially those of us on the West side of the state. I've been in Eastern Washington with temps well over 100 for days on end and it didn't bother me so much, being a 'dry heat', but it is still hot.

    We've had 100+ temps before so it's not really a rarity, it just doesn't happen often and it doesn't stay there for more than a couple of days.


    So how ya'll doing??? I think I'm just going to crawl in the freezer with a note to thaw me out later when the temps are more resonable.

    Finally cooled off. Lows mid 50's and 75-80 for highs very low humidity. Great weather for mid August can't complain.

    Noticed some trees starting to change color. Fall is knocking on the door.

    It was 104 and humid here in Houston yesterday. There are no storms to worry about in the gulf, so Situation normal.

    Pretty typical here. Little cooler right now with highs in high 80s to low 90s. Humidity can get brutal but not horrible right now. We are very dry right now. Has been some showers around but all have missed me.

    It is supposed to be hotter today with a west wind coming in before the “cool” front tomorrow.

    It’ll be in the mid 90s, today. The humidity is supposed to be around 50% so it’ll be bearable.

    And not everyone on the west side has central air, so that's a big reason why temps in the 90s are a big deal over there. We're supposed to be in the hundreds for the next few days. We'll see if we actually get there. Yesterday was supposed to, but I think we topped out at 95.

    Funny story: I'm a wet sider through and through so it takes me a while to get used to the heat, and even then I don't handle the heat well. But the other day our high was in the upper 70s and I was freezing all day.

    Afternoon highs are finally below 100.
    Right now it's 94.
    Humidity is 63% so conditions are not too bad, compared to just one month ago. 105 degrees with 90% humidity will take the starch right out of you.

    92 down by the coast but still hot as hell. There is a breeze so that helps some. Did some mowing yesterday and even sitting on the mower for a couple of hours tired me out from the heat. Course, a dip in the pool helps.. well maybe since that water is hot too!
