    I don't remember the temperatures ever getting this hot before....in the area I live in...anyways. I know that Vegas can get even hotter.

    Actually, I just found out that we did break a record today. 2 degrees hotter than it has ever been previously recorded in this area. In 2006, it hit 113.

    I'd rather have that than the winter us in the North got last year.

    I think like 30 days of -20 c or colder.

    I hate the cold as well. The coldest I have ever experienced is in the 30's.

    I understand the Truth also... I have lived near the beach for the last 15 years and have never sweated before here... Suddenly I take a simple walk two minutes away and when I come home and sit down I am utterly drenched. Plus we never have this kind of humidity here... It has been around sixty percent humidity. The water is evaporating.

    To be honest, most people are staying home. I went to the gym and don't remember the last time it was that quiet.

    One of my friends told me that he went to Newport Beach because he thought it would be cooler and it wasn't. Normally the beach areas are much cooler. I think the only areas with reasonable temperatures (low 80's) in Southern California right now is Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead (higher altitudes).

    A lot of people in South Florida are saying this is the hottest summer they can remember. I say "is" because although school's back, our summer weather always goes way into the Fall.

    And actually many residents here often think of us having just one perpetual summer, with sometimes a few short cold snaps around Jan-Feb. Rather we refer to the seasons by words like "rainy", "dry", "tourist", "holiday" and most dreaded of all, "hurricane season".

    Which thankfully hasn't been very active for a few years, a;though with some close calls. Whereas the US Northeast has been getting hit harder.

    Still summer here. I thought I was gonna have to put the top and doors back on the jeep, but the rain that was in the forecast evaporated. They say another week of 90's. Usually, we stop irrigating by now...

    This is like the 6th northerly direction, pacific hurricane this year, bringing unusual high surf to LA's south facing beaches, especially Newport's the wedge, along with this freakish high humidity over half the summer so far, its been like Florida! You can really tell the higher humidity because it feels like your face is going to drip off, yuck

    Because of the next one, Odile, a cat 3, humidity will be high again mid week, might bring more flooding to AZ too
    But no rain for SoCal icon_mad.gif

    I can't complain. Vancouver is having an amazing summer. Very warm, hardly any rain and no end in site. I was in Toronto for the month of August and it was typical weather for October (I lived there for 45 years so would know). I'm not sure about "global warming" but well believe the weather is really changing all over the place.

    It's always hot where I live so, it doesn't make a difference to me.

    It's 49 here. We had beach weather the week after Labor Day and another day last week but looks like Summer is gone.
