    Hubby has been going to work at 6:30 am to "beat the heat" if he has a key and can go when he wants. 90+ around here, in Ohio. His helper hates him for it! My sister wanted to bring her family to visit from Germany next August, and I told her they'd be miserable, come on the spring break in May/June instead. They wouldn't know hat to do in hot/humid stay-inside weather.

    100º + here for days and days, except 2 days this month.

    No rain for weeks, if not months.

    The National Weather Service confirmed we had a touch down in Mpl;s proper. About a mile form my house. Too close for my comfort. Funny thing is, I was stting at my desk and heard a siren. Nothing wierd going on outside, but I flicked the TV on and saw it had hit a few minutes before I turned it on.

    What was so strange, it was pretty cold, about 68° (degree sign for CP's benefit!) and a steady hard rain was coming down. Very unusual conditions for a tornado.

    Perry, I don't know how you stand it. They said on the news that some parts of Texas had already had 83 straight days above 100.

    Who is that Perry guy anyway?

    I'd rather be hot, than cold anyday. I have absolutely no insulation!! Like, 1% body fat, if that. If I get cold, I get the shakes and shivers so bad, it gives me a migraine, form being tensed up.:blink:

    I can strip down naked, and stay cool.:D

    We are now in the second hottest and driest ever and they expect us to hit a new record this year, as we as rolling into the known hottest part of our summer.

    It was very chilly in Ohio today. Yesterday, it was hot, humid, muggy - today it felt like fall and I had to put on a sweatshirt!

    Thanks for asking, Strip, we are fine. Our hydro went out just after 7pm and we spent most of the evening out on the porch with a propane lantern. The worst of it was in the northwest quadrant of the GTA; we are at the far eastern reaches on the lake. Power was restored around midnight. Thank God none of the mature trees around our home came down.

    We have had several massive and uncharacteristic storms this year, we are afraid with climate change, they are only going to get worse and more frequent.

    Thanks again for asking.

    I'm with you Floorguy......get's much below 70' and I'm getting the sweater out.

    We never get funnel clouds touching down in this area. The community hit was the far north-western part of the GTA, Vaughan, and the damage there was isolated to a fairly small area. The village of Durham in central Ontario was where the other funnel cloud touched down and a little boy died in the damage. Since this is outside our usual weather patterns, of course the media had a field day with it.

    We had to put our furnace on a couple of times this summer, too. :eek:

    Must be the humidity levels that causes that. 68 to 72 and sunny is ideal, 75 is really pushin' the envelope, and 80 is bedrest with ice packs so I don't pass out. :yesss:
    Around here, it's the wind that makes summers less comfortable.
