As we say in Texas, it's fixing to get hot.

    My 10 day Google forecast doesn't show heat indices unless you click on a specific day, but our current should give you an idea.

    We had an incredible amount and frequency of rain so far this year, and way milder temperatures than normal to boot, so actually it's about time it got hot.

    Maybe I won't have to mow as often for a bit.

    That's actually what I'm doing today, just took a break and decided I'd ask our members around the country, and the world: what's your summer weather looking like?

    I hate summer in Southern California. It's 88 degrees now, so not as bad as Texas but still warmer than I'd like. I'm a cold weather kind of guy. That, and so many damn mosquitoes out.

    Yes, we've entered into the face-melting stage of Texas summers. :cry:

    I was in Dallas on Friday and Saturday. Walking from a building, across a parking lot to the car... dripping with sweat... in less than 60 seconds.

    Pretty typical mid-July weather here in western South Dakota. Here's tomorrow and through the coming week...

    OK, that's a nice day here.

    It was that temperature when I went on my early morning hike.

    99 in Albuquerque today, with no end in sight for the next week or so. We hit 103 yesterday and 106 the day before according to the thermometer in my truck.

    I'm convinced that the only reason anyone likes summer is because we were conditioned as kids since that's the only time we were out of school. As a 40 year old man, give me any other freaking time of year besides July or August.

    Similar temperatures here in Florida. Just plain hot and too little rain.

    Little breeze and about 73-74 here in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. It’s pretty much perfect. That being said we do get some doozies of a winter too.

    It’s been daytime highs in the low to mid 90s for the past month-plus here. The week ahead looks to be more of the same. But at least there’s a chance of rain most days.

    As we like to say down here "it ain't the heat, it's the humidity." Mid 90s this week and humidity is gonna be up there. These folks always make me chuckle.

    It’s cooled down to 106F degrees here, now.

    I went out on the back porch a little while ago, and there was a small Blue-tailed Skink trapped in the overflow pan for the hot water heater. He couldn’t get out. So we rescued him.

    There was another Blue-tailed Skink lying on the deck. We checked him and he wasn’t doing very well. Mrs. Steerforth tried to bring him around, but he was too far gone, so she placed him gently in the shade on the grass.

    There was also a Green Anole running around out there, probably looking for water. So we placed several small dishes of water out in the yard for the critters, and madame is cleaning and filling the bird bath.

    It gets hard on the small creatures when it’s this hot.

    In 1980 I took off on a bicycle tour in some record heat.
    I left Houston and headed north with the destination to be somewhere cool.
    Well... I made it as far as Dallas were I said, "enough!," and got a plane home.
    Some may recall the all-time record heat Dallas had that summer. 113 degrees but with 113% RH.
    Just think about camping in such scorching weather after riding all day.
    Woof.
