This week it's been: partly cloudy, high of 77. Overnight low of 60.

All I can say is, I don't want summer to be over yet. All of April, May, June and part of July were CRAP with rain every. single. day.

I agree.  I'm ready to get out of the 90+degree days along with the 75%+humidity.  The dog days of summer are getting a little old now.  My favorite season is right around the corner though.  :)

FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!   Yeah baby!

F-O-O-T-B-A-L-L....That's a funny way to spell hockey.  :-\ Must be a Hawaiian thing.
Thanks, Weaze, I needed a laugh this morning!

at my mom's farm for the weekend.  despite the heat, my dogs love swimming in the pond.  breaking through the morning serenity though are the unmistakable sounds of summer: the race cars at mid-ohio. far enough away that it takes a trained ear to pick up on them.

Sorry Weeze, I usually agree with you (except about the kilt) but in this case, bite your tongue.  We don't get enough summer up here so we'll take all we can get.

Heck Ron, here in south-central Iowa we consider 90+ with only 75% humidity a great day to be outside.  We typically have weather you can wear this time of year.  95+ with 90% humidity is pretty common.  After the 2 weeks straight of 102 to 108 my life guard kids were complaining it was cold at 95.   8)

Soon enough it will be Fall and then Winter at -5F and I'll complain about that too.   ;D

It has been unbearably hot in Michigan this summer. We are not used to a month of 90-100 degree temps and that's what we got in late June-July. We were up at my cabin in the water and I was still sweating! Nothing but a cold homebrew could cool you off  8)

The Heartland has been hit especially hard this summer. I've lost count of the over 100* days, and the drought is a b****. My son works outside every day in K.C. and is just drained by the end of the day. Here in the Ozarks area in Missouri it's the same, too hot to fish and a lot of the creeks are dry.                                                 
   I'm drinking a nice dry Saison and a lightly hopped Blonde Ale in this heat, how about you-all?

We're about to get our first really hot weather of the summer.  Low-mid 90s for the next 4 days.

I love Seattle.

Well that just sounds cold.  I was happy I didn't have to go outside during NHC, although that skywalk between the conference hotel and the mall next door should have been completely enclosed.  A roof doesn't stop sideways rain.

Haha, and here all of us natives were worried that with the nice weather over NHC (Other than that one nasty afternoon) Y'all would want to stay.
