The humidity is nowhere near what Florida experiences in August IMO...

I remember constant heat indexes of 110+ and trying to cool off in 89 degree Gulf of Mexico water.....ugh.

Welcome to NC & the South. Land of the heat. I was in St. Augustine, FL today & I think it was hotter in Charlotte then it was in St. Augustine (at least that's how it felt).

But this is really unusual, though. Average is about 90 this time of year. The last time I remember it being this hot and dry for this extended period is back in '83. I had just graduated from high school and worked fro my dad. It was mostly outdoor work and it was terrible all summer. It seemed we were breaking heat records eery few days. But I could handle the heat a lot better back then than I can now.

We're still in MA and having a spell of unusually cool weather--more like end of Sept than mid-august. It never even reached 70 the past few days and nights have been in the 40's. I'm not gloating either. Summer is so short here anyway, I feel robbed.

It's been hotter then normal in Socal as well. We don't have airconditioning in our house because we're close to the beach and I'm dying. We're in the process of buying a house out in Waxhaw and I saw recent pics of the yard...it's amazing how brown it can get it two weeks!

More than the heat is the drought problem. My garden burned up. We use rain collection and are out of water. To hell with the yard, I would like my perennials and vegetables to make it. We've been lucky to survive without major fires.
