Who forgot to turn off the furnace?

Went to town today and when I got back to my jeep the outside temperature gauge said it was 98 degrees. I know it's hot but I didn't think it was that hot and figured it was because my black jeep had been sitting in the parking lot. 10 miles down the road it was 102 when I got along the river it went down to 100 degrees........ and it's only june

I sure hope the forecast for a dry hot summer is wrong!

Eh, I don't have to shovel this stuff off the driveway so you won't hear me complaining. We had a severe heat warning in effect from 1 - 8 PM a couple nights ago, I was playing softball from 6 - 8

We are getting a break this weekend if the weatherman is right. The afternoon highs are going to be down in the mid nineties.

Just checked. The indoor/outdoor says it's 91.8 under the deck out back - about as close to a standard weather instrument housing as I can get around here.

I'm heading out to do some yard work!

Wimps....

Been running 104-106 for the last week, per my weather station. 103 right now and it's only 1:30 PM. I'm sure we'll hit 106-108 by 4PM. I'm just glad I don't live near the river cities. They hit 118 last week.

Funny thing is...its hotter right now in my old place in VA (per WeatherUnderground) than it is here.

Oh...btw...I don't do anything outside over 90. Don't have to...don't want to.

In Maryland and the surrounding area where the politics is often heated the weather is even worse than that. Over here it is currently at 4:28 p.m. 103 degrees. One of our local weathermen Bob Ryan said don't be surprised if we beat a record today and he was right as usual. This weekend is going to be real hot too so we are not going anywhere. A few days ago I went out for a walk but wouldn't even think of it now just too hot.

Ya, as bad as 100 degrees is here in tenn, I prefer it to the high 80's low 90's of central fla with the 90% or higher humidity.

I'll take 110 in Phoenix over 85 here. Though I was driving down the street in Phoenix once when it was 120 and I learned a valuable lesson: it was pleasant enough to have the windows open instead of running the AC but when I went to stick my arm on the windowsill and it hit that black trim - Yeeoowww!

Mid 90's a break? In that case, I'll keep my complaining to myself.

Hope were not in for a freezing cold winter since they usually follow each other.

Oh you guys are just complaining too much.

We have the heat, plus our county is a mess with a county wide water restriction because of a major watermain break.

Plus a water boil advisory. I guess bacteria laden water is better then no water. Thank heaven I am on a well.

So I did the yard work (more pruning) and then decided to set out the sprinkler. I guess you know what that led to.

I think the storm is finally moving away.

Not all that bad this morning but about 9:15 last night the power went out the news this morning said all of our electric company's customers were without power. I guess that affected the water company as well since we also lost water for a couple of hours

They're forecasting another 100 degree day for today and tomorrow but next week it's supposed to only get up to the low 90's. Never thought I'd look forward to low 90's.

I'm looking forward to low 90s too!

I didn't realize how strong those storms were last night. We're among the lucky ones:

Fallen trees were blamed on both deaths in Springfield, Va. the 90-year-old woman in her home and a man driving a car, Fairfax County police spokeswoman Mary Ann Jennings said.

In addition, a park police officer was injured by an uprooted tree in the northern Virginia county, and an 18-year-old man was struck by a power line, Jennings said. He was in stable condition after receiving CPR, she said.

"Our officers and firefighters are out there with power saws, trying to clear the streets," Jennings said.
Source: Storms leave at least 5 dead, 2M without power

We live in Fairfax County. Springfield is not far away. We have a number of friends there and we're trying to check on them now.

Our power stayed on, and our POCO, NOVEC, is not reporting many outages. Here'e their outage map: NOVEC Outage Map But a spokes person for Dominion Power, the large POCO in the area, said last night that
More than 450,000 customers [are] without power in NOVA. Will be several days before everyone gets their lights on.
Here's Dominion's outage map: Dominion Virginia outages
