How cold is it where you are?

Seriously. It's 150 degrees here (slight exaggeration -- but only slight!) so please share your wonderful weather. Leave out no details. Furry hats, fuzzy slippers, hot chocolate ... I need to live vicariously. We promise to return the favor come December.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

76 over here in Rowlett... what a difference 60 miles east of Fort Worth can mean.

of course that's inside the house with the AC on.... walking outside the back door... it's still 98.

Where I'm sitting it's 77F. Of course, I'm sitting in our living room and I can hear the power company sucking money out of my wallet, it's still 95F outside at 21:00. But then you knew that.

These days I take a soft-sided cooler when I go for groceries because I'm afraid the milk will go bad before the AC catches up in the car! Now that we have the Argosy and my work is really portable, my partner's starting residency so we can't run off to Flagstaff to hide from the north TX furnace.

I've lived in Texas 42 of the last 45 years... I think I forget how awful summers can be through some sort of subconscious mechanism that lets me forget so I don't run away before it gets so bloody hot.

Plagiarist! I started my response before yours posted!

Just checked our themometer. Sitting right on 70 with a slight breeze. Very comfortable. Heading to Port Angeles, WA tomorrow and we are hoping that it won't rain.

I feel your pain. in the Valley, we have had 100+ nearly every day since the end of May and not a drop of rain since I believe the first part of Feb. Then, at the very front of July, we had that little storm come thru. Some area's got like 8" of rain in 2 days, but we where so dry, nobody complained of flooding. Ever since, its been in the mid 90's (thank God).

High 90's or higher since about May I think. Humidity just makes it worse. We were outside doing yard work this morning and by 1300 I was done! (Should have stopped at 1000, like my wife)
But like the rest of the crew chiming in above, 77 inside at the computer...

And rain??? Not sure what that looks like anymore...

I'm sitting in our Airstream, quaffing a robust Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA, and it's 68 F w/ intermittent light rain on Lopez Island, Washington. We're on our land here for three weeks (I'm telecommuting via DSL).

I have never yet used the AC in the Tin Pickle; the only time we might have done so we've been boondocking in the desert w/o power.

Today we hit 77. Tomorrow is supposed to be 83 and then it will cool down until a high of 68 on Saturday.

Just got back from a few days in Eastern Washington, just short of the Canadian border. We had very cool weather, so cool in fact that I had to turn on the furnace.

Found out the duo therm isn't functioning so we actually had to bundle up for a few days.

I have used my home AC exactly twice this season and for just an hour each day. It is not a typical summer here in Spokane. I feel for all of you out there in the heartland.

Our temps in Central Texas have been right at or over 100 deg for so long now that it's no longer a topic of discussion at our City Cafe. Let your coffee get cold? Just take it ouside & set it down on the hood of your pickup for a few minutes. And that's at 8:00am!!

Rain? What's that?
