We are currently getting a heavy thunder shower, probably will pick up an inch or so...

While it has been hot, it's Florida, it's July. :D

You'll keep the weather half ass decent for the final round of the British Open Sunday. A Yank is going to win it this year.

I keep forgetting to deploy my raincollector but I'd say we ended
up with close to 2 inches of rain today. If it comes down again I'm
going to have to drain the pool. :D

Sorry...it was hit and miss. We needed to run a couple of errands
and less than 2 miles west and south of us they got nothing.

Same here, well over 100+ almost every day for well over a month or two.
We got one 5 minute downpour last week on the west side of town, which
I was on the other side & got about 3 drops at the most. :mad: We are still hot
and dry, under burn bans, under severe water rationing with the City actually
giving heafty fines to violators now. Still have fires burning, at least 3 were in
the news yesterday and today. All my nose hairs have been singed off from
breathing outside. I do believe I've died and went to hell.

record breaking heat here.


A two-week heat wave across Central Texas has rewritten the history books.

The high temperatures Monday at Camp Mabry and at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport reached 103 degrees, the hottest temperature ever recorded so early in the year at ABIA -- and second hottest at Camp Mabry.

It was the seventh day of record heat in the past two weeks, and the record-high temperature is expected to be threatened again Tuesday, with a forecast of 100 degrees. This spring is now the hottest in Austin history, with records dating back to the 1850s.

Temperatures have reached the triple digits five times this spring, with two weeks remaining until the official beginning of summer. On average, temperatures reach 100 or above only 12 times a year.

The average first day of triple-digit heat in Austin is July 11.


2011 the hottest summer ever. So far.

Hopefully it will not end this way, but this summer is off to the hottest start in recorded Austin history.

You can see in the tables below our average high temperature since June 1st ranks #1 on the all-time list at 100.3 degrees. Our average daily temperature during this period also ranks #1 at 87.5 degrees. For climate purposes, summer includes the months of June, July and August.

right now we're at 32 days of 100+ degree heat, with the 7 day forcast predicting the same all the way through.

More T-Storms all around us at the moment. Some rain but nothing too much...

Lots of lightning.

SLW and I had to go up to Tampa/St.Pete today and the weather was nice, a little drier than over the weekend but not bad and pretty hot.

Until we got back to Sarasota...

We could see the T-Storms as we went over the SkyWay Bridge and by time we got home it was pouring again. I'd say we picked up another inch and some places
I'm sure got even more. This tropical storm was supposed to kill the afternoon T-Storms but someone forgot to tell the storms...

:D

I burned up the tensioning pulley for the fan belt on the tractor today, there is nothing nicer than the smell of antifreeze steam!

I had squirrel stew once when I lived in Poplar Bluff, Mo for a year. The next door neighbor cooked that lovely dinner. All I remember was the little piece of buckshot that almost broke one of my teeth. :D

Ridiculously hot in Chicago. There's a giant lake full of 55 degree water and its still pushing the upper 90's on the lakefront. At night. Next to the biggest natural AC unit in the western world.
