This has been one CRAZY summer following one CRAZY spring following one CRAZY winter. El Nina is to blame and we can expect more records to follow with a more active hurricane season and possibly early snows when winter arrives. It seems to me that since our daughter and her family moved here from San Antonio last year I keep saying, "The weather is NEVER this hot/cold/dry/rainy/snowy!"
So far this summer we've had a record highs (110 degrees), warmest lows (85), 2nd driest summer, highest wind gust 77mph on August 7th, top 10 highest consecutive 100 degree days, every day in July was above 90 degrees, June was our 3rd hottest on record... and summer's not over yet!
We finally got some much needed rain yesterday and today was a pleasant low 90's... did I really say that? We have 80's in the forecast next week, I can't wait! I know we're not the only ones on this roller coaster ride, what's the weather like where you live?
