On a Hot Summer Night…

On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red…  No, wait a minute.  That’s the lyrics to a Meatloaf song when I should be quoting Shakespeare.  Shall I compare thee to a….

What I really want to know is, how hot is it where you are this August?  It’s definitely incredibly hot…and humid…here in Central Florida.

Have a magnificent weekend!

  1. 16*C and torrential rain in Ireland today! Just got back from my hols in Greece where it was a hot and sunny 30*C every day… feeling shivery, wheres my pj’s and dressing gown???

  2. It’s strange, you can usually describe August in DC with one word – sticky. But this year, it’s not really. It has actually been fairly cool when I take my dog for a walk in the mornings. Weird weather!

  3. 60’s and 70’s in the mountains, 80’s down on the flats. It’s 64 here now. We’ve had monsoon in the high country for over a week with flash flooding and road closures, but it was clear yesterday so I’m hiking into the headwaters above Scofield today.

  4. Up here in SE Wisconsin where it has been a very cool summer in the 70’s and 80’s and sometimes lower than that! Beautiful sunshine and breezes this week!

  5. Currently fabulously cool and dry in the evening (like 60s and 50s) . In the day it gets hot up to 80s. But compared to the 90s a couple of weeks ago and humidity that would kink my hair- if I had an ounce of curl, this is welcome. Autumn is my favorite time of year and I can’t wait!! It seems to be moving in- our dogwood has a branch of red leaves and our fire bushes have begun to turn. I hope it keeps up! (Of course it won’t we get active bees into the end of September so it is premature but a wonderful welcome relief for me.)

  6. Have you ever seen Meat Loaf in concert, Rachel? I’ve seen him a couple times from the floor, near the front, and the man can sweat, even mid-winter, at a hockey rink show. I know, the stage lights are blazing. Always a hot summer’s night for Mr. Loaf, as the New York Times calls him on second reference. Fun show if you like dramatic anthem rock, as I recall, by the way.

  7. It is hot in Georgia in August, but this year it has been less humid than usual. It has been a beautiful summer, and even though fall is my favorite season, I don’t want it to end yet! 🙂

  8. We’ve had the summer of my dreams in Michigan. Pleasant days in the 70s and 80s, cool nights in the 50s and 60s….most of the summer. Reasonable amounts of rain. (Last year we had a 100 year flood). Summer’s almost over, and I am dreading winter, though. (Last winter with the polar vortex, we were buried in snow for months on end).

  9. We’ve had an incredibly mild summer here in Southern Indiana, but the past couple of weeks has been in the upper nineties with high humidity. Not pleasant at all. Today, it has cooled off again back to the seventies.Growing up in South Florida, I never thought the heat was too bad except when we’d drive inland away from the coast. Then it always seemed very hot and muggy. 🙂

    • I’m in Central Florida and we’re still in the low 90s in the evening, upper 90s during the day, plus humidity. I know a lot of people don’t believe in global warming, but I know when I was a kid here, it wasn’t nearly this hot. 🙂
