    It Must Be Summer...Somewhere!!!

    It sure is not summer here on the good ol' west soggy coast of B.C. We had everything on the weekend, it even hailed in some regions and further up on the Coquihalla highway it snowed!!!! It seemed cold enough today for a winter jacket. It's crazy. The stores are selling shorts, bathing suits and tanning oil and at the same time the umbrellas and rain gear are flying off the shelves.

    Oh, I wish it would warm up!!!!

    Sorry to hear that, Lad. In Philly we're getting back into the 90's today and tomorrow - hot and humid after a gorgeous, comfortably warm weekend. Hope summer comes back to B.C.

    Hey Lad!

    Move to the South East!! We are experiencing that wonderful hot & humid thing that makes me sooo very happy!! It more than makes up for the panic that sets in here in Richmond when 1/4 inch of snow is predicted and everyone rushes to the grocery store to buy milk, water & eggs... (granted, it is the funniest thing I've ever seen... )

    Although we've had tornadoes, etc., it has been so good to not have temperatures in the 100's yet. We had way too much rain for a while and it hadn't rained for about a week, it is raining now but not all the floods, etc. a lot of others have had. Actually, today I am liking the rain, means I don't have to water nearly as many plants, etc. and the grass seed I have been throwing here & there. It has been humid and warm, 80's and 90's. Hopefully, you will soon have the weather you wish for.
    Right now any weather that doesn't have blizzards, tornadoes and floods seems good to me.

    It'll be in the 90's and humid until Friday here in Central NJ. I hate humid weather - makes my allergies go beserk.

    The weather in Toronto has been pretty odd this year. We have either been way above normal or way below normal. It is supposed to be about 80 F this time of year and today it was 93 plus humidity. At the end of last week it was barely 70, and that is what they are forecasting for the upcoming long weekend. We have barely seen any rain the entire month either. In fact most days have been perfectly cloud free. I would love a nice "average" summer but I probably shouldn't be complaining considering what Lad is going through!

    Those of us in the vicinity of Lake Tahoe are wishing it WASN'T summer here, since "summer" generally means 90+ degree weather and no rain.

    We had huge flooding here in the lower mainland and up in the north country as well. Some of the smaller towns were completely cut off. It sure will be nice to see the sun return as we don't see it much here. Our plants and trees are all thriving as ever, but we are tired of being soggy!!!

    Thanks

    We have had 3 1/3 inches since it started. Lots of flooding. Understand TX is really bad. They just added a couple of more days to our rains. Sopping wet. Probably will have to take my plants in pots and baskets, etc. in under the patio they are so wet. And that makes them heavier!!!

    The sun really shined for a little while today. What a mess. Had barely under 8 inches so far!!! Still some tomorrow. But it is tapering off. Suppose to quit Weds. I HOPE, I HOPE.

    In NYC, where one can go through 4 seasons in any given week, we have been alternating between tropical heat, early autumn, late winter, early spring, and an occasional summer day. There is also those electrical summer storms usually during the evenings. One is not worried about getting hit with lightning. One worries about Con Edison (electric/gas company).
