Hows your Weather?

Since the weather sucks here in Quinton, NJ, with high temps and higher humidity, I thought I'd ask everyone else "How's your weather"? Maybe we can collectively suffer together or maybe not.

    Hot here in TN. 94 feels like 107. Humidity actually not bad 55%. If you're workin in the shade you're lucky. If you're workin' in the sun, it's bad.

    I'm a tad southeast of Nashville. If you ask me to be more specific, I'll get suspicious.

    Dropped down to high 90s today and still miserable humidity. Afternoon thunderstorm cooled it off now.

    Weather is the red-headed stepchild of conversation.

    It's summer. That means heat and humidity broken by thunderstorms. Yesterday, rode Biffy Bullfrog thru Amish country looking for shade grown Connecticut broadleaf. Started nice; turned hotter; became stifling; rode home in refreshing rain. Today, rode Sopowa to herf with a fellow cigar roller in the city. Started nice; turned hotter; became stifling; rode home in air so thick that whiffling through it created enough turbulence to precipitate droplets -- a horizontal rain localized to just me. Now it's thunderbumbling & big drop raining. Temps dropped 15 degrees. Tomorrow when I ride to work, the weather will go like so: start nice; turn hotter; become stifling. After work I'll ride home & it'll thunderstorm.

    & people will complain like it's sposed to do anything else.

    Way better than the alternative. Where I grew up, SoCal, it started hot, grew hotter, until you could fry an egg on the sidewalk, while we would all brag "... but it's a dry heat". Never humidity, no thunderstorm, no green at all. Hot that melted the tar out of asphalt so it stuck to your shoes. Here at least we got jungle heat. Skeeter heat. Mow twice a day if you wanted to.

    All's I gotta say is, God bless Willis Carrier... love that man. Give him all the kilowatts he needs.

    It has rained here all summer.  Have to mow my lawn twice a week and I cut 2 acres. Last time we had this kind of summer the winter that followed was brutal.

    ^^^Sounds like a lot of quality smoking time^^^

    We have got a lot of rain the last couple weeks also, the gravel hasn't grown a bit but I will take the 80 degree evenings anytime, even if I have to wear a hoody.

    71° and muggy here in PA. Got up my the mid 80s today which was a nice change, but the humidity is still killer.

    My friends down in northern Delaware weren't so lucky this evening. They received 5" of rain in less than an hour. The Red Clay Valley, which begins in PA and continues down to the Delaware River, spilled over its banks around 7:30pm, flooding roads and causing lots of problems.

    Some early photos from my friends at the railroad there:

    Lucky you... All I'm getting is a lot of ice... That is the ice I put in my glass of bourbon as I sit and smoke one.

    Should be. I read we are going thru epic solar storms, big enough that one storm knock ed out most of the grids in central america. Such solar storms are a feature of no sun spots and thus are followed by a couple of brutal winters. 

    But, you know, forecasts...
