Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that.

Here's this weeks question: Today is the first day of July and here in the U.S. it's summer. Many places are very hot this time of year and others are having flooding and lots of rain. What's the weather been like where you live?
Spring was pretty cool. Unusually cool and then we got some triple digit days as we neared summer. Right now we're having a heat wave. Unknown what kind of a summer we'll have, but one thing is for sure...it probably won't rain.

  1. Well, it's the south so HAWT and humid and thrn toss in some summer thunderstorms to keep it sultry.

    But I wouldn't trade our hot summers for snowy winters... At least I don't have to shovel it! :)

    Hoping you get some much needed rain, hon. srsly. Have yourself a wonderdul day! xoxo

  2. It's winter in New Zealand. Auckland weather is similar to San Francisco. It's cold, but but not freezing. It rains a lot, but doesn't snow. Although the past few days have been quite sunny.

  3. At this moment we are having a heatwave (well 3 days of heat counts as a heatwave here LOL) it's apparently going to be around 33 celsius/93F the humidity is horrendous, but it is gonna be stormy towards the end of the week I hope it clears the humidity we are not used to it as we don't get it so hot here usually :-)

    And that ladies and gentlemen is the weather for central London LOL

    Have a weathertastic day Sandee :-h

  6. Rainier than usual. But you will not find me complaining. We need it after an awful winter and drought warnings all spring. Just glad we didn't get a pool this year, we'd have no time to use it.

    BTW, love your patriotic blog template. Very cool!

  7. Here in the N GA Alps we are expecting more rain later, but at least the temps have dropped...low 60s at night, up to 80ish during the day. Not bad for summer!

  11. Indiana is the same as Jean from Michigan. My 14 year old hasn't been able to have his camping birthday party yet with all of the storms we're having. I do like the temps, but they aren't conducive to swimming.

  12. The last few days have been hot and humid. It has been a very wet spring and early summer here in NW Arkansas. The lakes are full, the rivers are full, and we may get more rain this week-end. They have actually opened the flood gates on Beaver Lake twice this year. That hasn't happened in the twenty-eight years we've lived here.

  13. we have actually been unseasonably cool. We were in the 70s and cooler, had some rain.......now we are getting more normal. It is supposed to be in the 80s for the next few days as it is supposed to be!

  14. It's really been wonderful for the whole part. We've had a great deal of rain this year. We broke a 75 year record for rain. Flowers & the lawn love it and the weather has been around 75 to 80 degrees this year. I only put the AC on twice. The worst part is there are many more mosquitos this year and they are bigger.
    Have a great Wednesday Sandee. See ya.

  15. The weather guy on the local reported the average temperature here last month was 100 degrees or more.
    Yesterday it was 113.
    Today and tomorrow it is supposed to be about the same, cooling to 105 on Friday.

    My cousin sent me a link that Ireland is having a heat wave, too.
    The temps there are in the 60s and 70s.

    1. It was blazing hot yesterday, but we didn't get that hot. We were around 107 I think. Too hot.

      So that's a heat wave in Ireland? The coast of Oregon it's about the same. :)

  18. Some of you may laugh, but where I live if the temperature gets above 75 we melt. It has been hitting close to 90 so it's deadly right now. The nights have been cooling down to the high 50s. Our biggest worry right now are forest fires. c-)

    1. I know that forest fires are your biggest worry. It would be for me too. I think we have one more day after today and it will cool off some. :)

  22. We're in that period where it's hot, humid and we get thunderstorms almost daily. Thankfully they don't last long, but they do dump a lot of water while they last. We have to keep draining the pool.

    1. Oh for some rain. Lots of gentle rain. Don't want to flood, but give everything a good soaking. :)

    2. I understand, but we don't just get that gentle rain, we get a downpour that makes our yard squishy. It doesn't last all day, but it's a very heavy downpour while it lasts. We make the best of it as everyone else in the country makes the best of what they get.

    3. We're making the best of what we get too, but I still long for a lot of gentle rain so things would be wet again. :)

  32. I live in Montreal, Canada, and today (July 1st) was Canada Day for us. It was pretty rainy, but I don't mind, because I have always loved the rain. I cannot take it when it is very hot and humid (like 30 in the 90's and up)....not so much the heat as the humidity that affects me, but unfortunately here in Montreal it is rarely a dry heat, it is always humid. :)

  33. It's rainy and flood season here in my part of the world but our weather bureau said we aren't getting enough rain (mild el nino) and the farmers are suffering. It's still warm though but not as humid hot compare to last 2 months. we do get rains mostly in the afternoon and evening and we are braving ourselves for incoming cyclones. In average 4 usually comes in July. You know we need rain water but we don't need the flooding specially here in the metro.
