    Will the heat ever end?

    Our Summer here in North Texas has been brutal, more so than usual. We started the spring off with unusually low amounts of rainfall and now everything is dead and the heat wave continues and there is no hope in sight. I even tried washing my car really well by hand a few days ago. That is usually more effective than an Indian rain dance, but even that failed to lure any rain.

    I love the heat, it keeps the schleps and can't hack it's in the AC and I get the entire desert to myself.

    Come on up to Minnesota. We're in the middle of a week of Mexico-like humidity & heat...with a bit of rain to make it swelter even more!

    I love the heat too, El Paso isn't as hot as Phoenix, so being stationed at Fort Bliss is pretty close to home for me.

    Here in northern OK we've been hitting 105 with high humidity on a regular basis. As I type it's a cool 97 outside, but will warm up more. 3 out of the next 7 days have a forecast of 106, all are over 100.

    And Gunny.... You're the devil. That's all there is to it.

    Come here for a visit in February. Then ask that question.

    I'm actually enjoying summer this year.

    It's been surprisingly mild so far. We've only had about three days over 100. It's even rained a couple times. (I know the stereotype of Oregon is rain all the time, but the central third of the state is high desert and tends to have very hot, dry summers.)

    We've been in a semi-ice age since 1400's.... and now it's getting "bacK " toward what it was before that. So, get ready.
    Canada has also stolen our part of the jet stream that typically keeps the heat further south.... so, Canadians are sucking in all of the cool air for themselves.

    Record in the last 100 yrs, was 90 days of 100*F ++ across the USA... in 1934. (remember, dust bowl strike a bell ? ).
