You just got transferred (or moved in some way) to South Carolina, right? Wow, your weather is almost identical to mine today if you're anywhere near Columbia. However, though we're forecast to drop in temps over the next few days, temps in Columbia are slated to go even higher. Go buy a tent!

Of course, if you're on the coast, it only feels like 94 degrees instead of 98 - and then there's always THE BEACH!

Right now at 1pm in central Houston (East Montrose) it is 97 degrees with a heat index of 108. The low last night was a balmy 77 degrees with 89% relative humidity, and the 20 minute downpour this morning followed by partly sunny skies are keeping things pretty steamy. Best to keep the car out of the sun, as its temperature was up to 114 degrees when parked at work this week.

Only 92 more days until the average high temperature falls below 90! If Houston is "lucky" it may get a Tropical Storm that may keep temperatures "down" for a couple of days (rain with highs in the 80s) between now and October.
I remember. This is why we left Texas. It hasnít broken 90 yet this in spring in Philly, though itís supposed to pass that threshold for all of two days later this week before settling down to a reasonable temp for the foreseeable future. But guess what? Iím currently on the 3rd floor deck of a beach house in Kitty Hawk enjoying the breeze and a glass of wine, so Iíll miss those 2 days. Cheers!

Denver has already had 12 days >90 degrees, 2 in May and 10 in June.

And I've yet to run the AC for more than 5 hours in a single day. Poor suckers in Dallas have had theirs on 24/7 for the better part of 3 weeks now.

DH and I are both home all day, so some days we might run it 8 hr or so. Never at night.

Difference is, once the sun goes down here, it feels nice.

Current heat index in Englewood? 70. Current index in Dallas? 93. Do you understand the difference. It's not just the peak temperature of the day, it's the length of the heat. We can revisit this in mid September as well. Denver summers can't touch a Texas summer.

Yep, with Colorado, you get a break from time to time.

I'm sure there will be a stretch of 100 degree days - probably in July or August - when I'll be burning up - and I'll be sure to keep you posted. But then I'll just remember how much I love our mild winters and gorgeous springs when I feel that way. And of course, my husband and I nearly always go on vacation to some place like Maine in September, because by then we're tired of being hot - much like people from other regions vacation in warm spots when they're tired of being cold.

It's nice to have options!
Don't have to wait. Heat index was 98 when you posted this.

We went to the Outer Banks last month!

A cold front came in the day after we got there - it was at least ten degrees colder than they anticipated. We stayed in a luxury resort right on the beach. It was so wet and cloudy and rainy the entire time that we literally couldn't see the water at all. It rained and was in the 50s for highs the entire time we were there. We couldn't sit on the beach, heck we couldn't even SEE the beach. We ended up going to Yorktown, Roanoke, Fort Monroe, etc. We saw every lighthouse around - of course we had to walk right up to them to see them because the fog was so dense, and there was no point in paying to climb them because we wouldn't be able to see anything from the top anyway. We drove through Kitty Hawk several times since to get to the mainland you basically have to drive through Kitty Hawk. I'm not particularly into the Orville and Wilber Wright story but we were so bored we even checked out THAT exhibit. Finally on our last day, after we'd bumped it out till we literally couldn't bump it any longer, hoping for better weather, we froze our wet tushes off doing the whole wild horses drive, which was interesting once I just owned being cold and soaked to the bone. We DID see some wild horses though, which was cool.

My favorite day though was spent in Yorktown.

I used to live in NC. I also lived in Virginia - both times near the coastline. I like both states but I know their drawbacks, that's for sure (all states have 'em).

Next vacation - the US Virgin Islands - NOT in hurricane season!

Really? Well, not to split hairs but that's not 100. And not only that, frankly I didn't notice because I was enjoying piddling around in the yard. Then about 7 I got cleaned up and went over to my neighbor's house for some porch sitting and games. They're from New Mexico but moved here a year ago. We sat outside on their patio till it got dark. I guess the heat just doesn't bother some people.

How do you like South Carolina?

My goodness, look at the five day forecast for Chandler, TX - today is the hottest, with a high of 90. It should be down into the mid 80s in a couple of days!
https://weather.com/weather/5day/l/USTX0234:1:US

Since you keep fixating on the weather where I live, I'll try to redirect you to focus on where YOU live. Here's the five day forecast for Columbia, SC - for the record it's forecast to be significantly hotter than Chandler, TX- batten down the hatches because your heat index is going to be over 100 for at least the next five days - actual temps of 99. Sorry! Oh well, I'm sure we'll catch up with you sooner or later.

The east coast has had a very wet spring this year. Sorry your vacation turned out so poorly, but it seems you made the best of it.

First time in OBX. We are with family from SC and this was a good halfway point. We are in an extremely expensive house in which we can literally step out into the sand from the bottom floor. Fingers crossed the weather forecast holds. The beach is nice but I donít expect to come here again as itís isolated and we have much closer beaches in NJ and Delmarva which are just as nice. At least weíll have a feel for the OBX when it comes up in conversation.
