I hear you there Dan. I left Lisa's this morning and it was humid as hell down her way. It is overcast here today in the mountains and 91 and 53% humidity.

I also had a new heat pump installed about three weeks ago and the damn thing stopped working now back to a window AC. Living in a trailer with a tin roof can get very hot with AC. :o

                                                                                 I am about 40 miles outside of Greensboro and it's 98 here. I made sure all the chickens  and cats have water and Robert is not allowed outside. Too hot for a 4 yo or anybody for that matter.

It's ninety and humid here with a heat index of 100. By thrusday it's calling for 96 degrees and heat index of 105. So we'll have the heat emergency all week long this week. It wouldn't be so bad if we didn't have the humidity of 58%. I can handle the heat as long as it's dry. It makes it to hard for me to breath, so I just stay inside. Everyone, try to keep cool the best you can.

We have some slight reprieve here today at only 85F/28C, though tomorrow we will go up to an abysmal 97F which I believe will be the hottest day thus far this season.

I'm 30 miles NW of DC, in Maryland.  Its 90degrees with a heat index of 98.  I couldn't believe it was ONLY 90 out!  The air is heavy and think, damn humidity and dew points get to me really easily. 

For the first time ever, the Weather Channel has an air advisory posted "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups."  I have never seen this, but this damn air just won't move!  I have my AC set on 69  ;D

Hot & Humid here in Michigan too

Temp right now at 8pm is 87 degrees with a heat index of 92

I work outside in the summer, I believe this is the most humid day we've had yet.

Looks like more of the same for the rest of the week  :-\

Oh how I envy you all.

It's 55 here at the moment, with a top of 68 predicted.

What I would give for a temp in the 80's or 90's with a nice dose of humidity in the 70 or 80's. I detest winter, cold weather and short days. At least there is a crystal clear blue sky outside.

NOTHING and I mean NOTHING compares to heat and humidity in New York City particularly when you go into the subway and its 10 degrees +  and then luck into a subway car packed with people and no a/c.   

Of course none of that is a fun as the lovely aroma that NYC streets get as dog shit, drunk's urine and garbage which had long since baked into the city streets over the years suddenly arise in a sort of olfactory resurrection.

Finally... the heat will break here.  It's only forecast to go to 87F and then it will break with storms in the afternoon and continuing all night long.  I hope we don't get weird tornados like they did in Brooklyn yesterday -- did you hear about that?  It was the first recorded tornado to ever touch down there.

Our weather in Houston just got back to normal. We have had our first run of mid 90s and 6000 percent humidity this summer. The past few months have the been the coolest here in my past thirty years. I guess thats why we havent been hearing much from the warmers. My electricity and water bills are at all time lows for this time of year.
I love it. I walked three miles twice yesterday and also hit a couple hundred golf balls at lunch time.
I wouldnt be surprised to see some activity in the gulf with this kind of heat. Nothing beats a good hurricane to cool things off.

Please, anyone want to trade places?

Here in Melbourne, Australia we have had a reasonably mild winter, the lowest maximum temperature was about 12 degrees Celsius, that is roughly 50 F.  Nights are getting down as low as 43F.  We can usually have some 0C  = 32F = freezing overnight with maximums as low as 38F (something like that).

95F?   That is only a little bit warm.  I would really trade?????

Any takers?

Hahahaha (that is only to show you that this is not a bad-tempered post, on the contrary, I am f*$@*ng envious of all you warm people)
