    Heat wave

    Its upcoming as of Saturday the 16th but looks nasty. According to Accuweather 14 of the next 15 days look 93 or above with almost rain, hope they are wrong. This might be the hottest streak since 1988.

    15 consecutive days over 100F and counting. 93F would be nice...

    Why is that? For DFW, the average high in July is 96F, and the average number of 100F days in July is 6.

    It would seem that neither rain or 93F are likely anytime soon. I just took a vacation trip through Iowa and North Dakota. Green is a very beautiful color.

    Things could get pretty bad. My wedding is next Saturday and my fiancee is already freaking out about it being this hot.

    I will go ahead and second this. I work outside for a living and I hate this sticky nonsense.

    I'm making a trip up to MN the week after next. It's going to be a great break.

    It's only supposed to be 104 degrees here Tuesday. However, we did just have 5 inches of rain yesterday, so there's that.

    Sounds delightful

    At least without the rain our humidity has been pretty low. 100-105 for quite a while but not enough humidity to cause a higher heat index.

    Right now, we're sitting at a swampy 82% relative humidity. Beautiful.
