It is 100F (38C) and feels like 120F (48c). (http://www.accuweather.com/us/tn/germantown/38138/city-weather-forecast.asp)

I ran out of the three gallons of water I had at 2 pm. It's 3;30 and I am in the office with a cold water and an iced tea.

It reminds me of how funny it is seeing what Canadians call unbearably hot. It MAY have been up to 85F and they were all miserably. Lovely spring day in Texas.

I'm at my parents' house in Southeast Missouri, and it's currently 105F with a heat index of 115-120F. Kinda makes me long for my house in South Central Texas where it's currently 93F.

It is indeed quite lovely here today. :)

This summer has actually been quite pleasant, with only a couple of days over 100F so far. I'm sure when I go home next week, the hot weather will follow me.

That's okay. You can leave it there. I like the weather how it is. :)

It's 100+ here with heat index over 105ish PLUS all that wonderful humidity. It's like being trapped inside a sauna, no shit...:mad:

Yeah, my car said it was 66F at lunch time today. It's usually off by a few degrees, but still. Horrible stuff.

Its not 93 today. May not quite be 100, but definitely upper 90s.

Either that or Im wearing a dark shirt and long pants.

I was NOT miserably! I was glorying in the lovely weather!

At this moment, it is 106 and feels like 124. (http://www.weather.com/weather/today/Germantown+TN+38138?from=hp_promolocator&lswe=38138&lwsa=Weather36HourPetsCommand)

I'm sweaty.

This reminds me how funny it is seeing what Americans call unbearably cold. Water starts freezing and falling from the sky and they're wearing heavy jackets and snow pant and the number of automobile accidents goes up by 500%.

Same thing with that Earthquake a few months back Huntress, people adapt to their locales and find others that aren't used to such conditions amusing. ;)

Heat index in Austin was 107 today, supposed to be 110 tomorrow. Just for frame of reference.

EDIT: It has been a very mild summer here. Don't think the temperature cracked 100 until late July. Last year it was 105 (H.I. 110+) literally every day for over 2 months.

lol... It's true. But everyone else was complaining.

Ah, however, I have lived in both cold and hot and so have a tolerance for both and the ability to mock all! :D

Ahh, and now it is time for the Deep South coastal late summer tropical weather. Mort got to experience the pleasant afternoon rains of the early-mid summer, but around August, we start getting sideways rain and vengeful lightning storms.

This is actually one of the best lightning storms I've seen in years. Minutes after it started, fire trucks were hauling ass everywhere. I saw one bolt - might be the biggest one I've ever seen - strike down a few miles in front of me as I was driving down the interstate. It looked big enough to destroy a whole subdivision. I'm hoping it struck an unmanned tower or something.

When I looked up the temp at my address on weather.com at the time I posted (12:45pm) it was 93 degrees. I'm in NW Austin, bordering on Hill Country, and I've seen it be a good 4-5 degrees cooler at our house than downtown Austin, Camp Mabry, ABIA, etc.

Might get some extra humidity as the lake dries up
