I ask because we're having the summer's (yeah, two weeks ahead of schedule) first heatwave--105 yesterday and 109 today. I celebrated with a bike ride at four o'clock. You know, just because. Telling myself it will pay off the first time I'm hauling up a south-facing midday climb to some godforsaken high pass.
The concept of late-spring floods is completely lost on me, but to you folks I can only say "keep dry."
Loc: Meadow Valley, CA
The always right Nat'l Weather said supposed to be 102 here, just outside Q, only 92, that was enough. Where I car camped yesterday by Bucks, it was warm, it was in the 80's or so I'm sure. A two beer day. Cooling way down starting Monday. Where I'm going bping next weekend, only shows around 59, but the low 42 at Sonora Pass. Duane
It was 107 at our place the last few days. Cooled off a lot today; only 102. It gets hotter down in the valley, in Phoenix. I think it got past 110 there the last few days. As they say regarding snowbirds, " If you can't take the Arizona summers, you don't deserve the winters".
I knew some of y'all would relate; nothing about growing up in Seattle prepared me for wild temperature swings like this. Am pleased to note today's high was a whopping twenty-nine degrees below yesterday's. Weird, but I'll take it.
10PM here in DFW and it's about 83* out. the triple digits are coming end of this week for us. Hopefully we won't have another year of 40+ straight days of 100+ heat.
But it's all relevant. I belong ot a FB page about Pugs (tha't my dog type) and one of the posters was in Maine and warning folks that those super hot 80* days were on the way! This on the day it was approaching 90 at 6pm for us.
