US heat map

I'm in cool blue. I feel for my Texas brethren. Been there and did that since I was 16.

I ***** about living in #1 since it's the wettest, coldest summer I can remember, but compared to what you guys are going through, I'll take it.

Come on now, used to it? You saw it said Record Warmest, right? It's felt like August here since late May and I can tell you surviving an August outdoors in Tx is no small feat. This has been the most brutal summer I can recall, not only record heat but literally NO rain. We're 16" behind for the year right now, and that's after being 6" ahead at the end of Jan. Finally some scattered storms this week but what we've gotten has been like 1/4" in some areas, at most. A normal July is about 3" and so far we've officially gotten .14" this month. It's freakin' insane and I, for one, am NOT used to it. :dizzy

This is the time of year we pay for no snow or ice and moderate temperatures during the winter, along with raking in tons of dough trying to keep everyone's plant material alive.
