My next door neighbors promise me this is the hottest summer they've ever seen. Today is expected to reach triple digits with high humidity. The heat index could be as high as 121 degrees for a few hours in the afternoon. Fortunately, things are supposed to "cool down" on Sunday and for next week with highs "only" in the low 90's.
Average temperatures for July and August are 89 degrees, so this truly is a hot summer that just won't stop. I am definitely looking forward to autumn.
And I really can't complain. Bill suggested taking a blow dryer outside and turning it full blast in my face to simulate Kuwait. No, thanks.
