    4th 100 degree day in a row, 5th overall

    It just hit century mark again, at least here in southern IA. I think Des Moines is there as well. This is the first time this has happened since mid August 1988 when DSM reported four 104 degree days in a row. This summer is becoming eerily similar to that drought year, which is bad news for all.

    '88 was my first year of college. I remember that there were water conservation practices being enforced, but that's about it.

    Low '80s in Northwest Iowa. Nice breeze out the Northwest. Humidity is reasonable. All-in-all a very nice day.

    Remember that is official readings... my thermometer said 104 but the official at the airport here in Ohio only said it was 99...

    I understand your pain those 100+ days are awful.
    We had a terrible summer in College Station last year, 26 days above 100 deg in a row and 69 days over 100 for the year.

    Hope it gets better for you guys soon.

    Honestly I'll believe the airports though. Many peoples pws's and thermometers aren't well shielded from solar radiation or too close are to close to the house.

    I work for a local commercial refrigeration/HVAC company. The service dept. is running their collective a****S off. Lots and lots of overtime.

    We've been due for a hot summer. We really haven't had one in a long while.


    I used to be cool. Now... I secretly listen to Abba in my car.

    Temp is dropping pretty rapidly now. It was 99 in Norwalk at 3:30, it is now 87. Still pretty humid out so feels hot but at least relief is coming.
