I will make you all jealous. Current temp here in my home town is 2 degrees celsius with snow forecast down to 700/800 meters. My home town of Lithgow is at 900 meters.

Looks like the midwest and east are experiencing a typical Arizona summer. I just hope they can get the electricity back up and running.

Oh yes! It's going to be a long hot summer. The Midwest and East aren't like Arizona. It's a humid steambath compared to the dry heat of Arizona. That's what they say anyway. You don't feel the heat so much in Arizona because it has dry heat. Well, so does Hell. Now is when you need oven mitts to hold the steering wheel when you first enter the vehicle.
I agree. I just got out of Maryland, Virginia and the D.C. area 6/28/12. It was bad enough when I was there. I'll be back in the area again around 7/15/12 with a couple of days in Buffalo NY prior. I'm glad to be out of the mess for a couple weeks. The 105 degree weather at my home base in Southern NV is very pleasant considering.
My little Weather Bug icon just clicked from blue 99 to red 100 degrees, with a dewpoint of 78. Last night I came home at 10:45 to find one of the window A/C units dead. After 4 days of heat killing or nearly killing people, and with lousy rig A/C I really needed to cool off. But at least I have electricity so far and had one last old clunker unit to man handle into place which worked. Soooo glad I'm off today

Hottest we normally get is about 115 (in the shade), on rare occasions (normally with bush fires around). days over 40C (104) though are getting more and more frequent each summer. The pool is good..........
As it's winter over here, the last week has been around 20C (68-70) during the day with clear skies and around 3C (38) at night.
Got up to 97 degrees here in OBIOland today. Thank goodness we bought nice big energy efficient window A/C units for our place. The down stairs portion of our duplex is pretty open so can be cooled via a single 12 thousand BTU window unit. Bought a second 12 thousand BTU unit for upstairs, but the cool air was not making it from the bedroom to the office.....so we bought a 5 thousand BTU unit to cool the office. Luckily, this place is insulated like crazy (walls are rated at R20 and roof is rated at R30....outside walls are 6 inches thick and filled with dense spray foam insulation). The A/C units might have kicked on 3 times an hour (if that often even) today....and they only ran for just a few minutes each time. Right now, the office A/C is set at 75 degrees, but the room is actually down to a nice 71 degrees.
Nearly melted today riding Scooterbike to see Mom, stopped a a Long light and the pavement and Harley was hot to say the least..
Glad I do have a air conditioner in the apartment..
Otherwise there would be a puddle of hobbit goo, with two eyes floating in it right now..
100 degrees+ here is too Hot for Ohio..
can't wait for Winter!! okay then I will be cold, but at least I can put on more clothing, right now can't get enough off to do any good..
And having furry feets doesn't help!!
Naked hobbits forever!!
Great, now Katastrophe is laughing..
Anyone want a Kat??
no need ... i kinda like the weather we have!!
yes i know i cant spell half the time! Thank you kindly to those few who pointed that out
Today they are predicting a record setter . 103-4 degrees with an index of 109 ! Next Tues I saw Hi 83 , Lo 59 !
Come on Tuesday ! Still nothing compared to some parts of the country. Overall this heat wave has sucked for just about everyone . Still parts of the Buckeye out of power from the storm last Fri(6/29) . Got mine back on the 4th at noon . AC getting one hell of a work out .
Yesterday, the bank thermometers on the way to work were all showing 106 degrees. The temp inside our packing room at work was a blistering 116 degrees. HOT HOT HOT. After lunch, I was doing the work normally done by 2 guys because two guys quit and one guy went home (wusses and sissies and slackers....that's what the 20 somethings prove to be anymore). I got so hot that I nearly passed out. I was sweating like the Niagra Falls and my vision started doing that black tunnel thing. I stopped, leaned forward with my hands on my knees until the tunnel opened back up, then I went and sat directly in front of one of the 4 foot diameter floor fans until I cooled off a bit.
Today's high is forcast to be a much cooler 83. Current temp at Mansfield Lahm is 79 degrees.
Yesterday afternoon here in the DFW area in Texas, the heat index was around 107 with actual temp 104. Then, a storm front blew in and in about 40 minutes the temp dropped to 85 degrees. Looked
really nasty on the weather radar, but for us, dark clouds all around but nary a drop of rain. This was one of those storm fronts where you wait for the other shoe to fall after it blows in...Fortunately, all
we got was some stiff winds for a little bit and some much cooler temps!
