Looks like this heat wave your all getting is trying to bring up the average when it comes to summer temperatures! Hope your all right over there, drink lots of water, and stay in-doors as much as you can.

Your not alone, recently we just came through Colorado and Utah on our way back to CA. for 4 days straight the weather averaged 104+ with as high as 114 in parts of Utah and Nevada, and even 112 in CA at Baker. Ugh.

At least you can look forward to some cooling off soon!

We CA like to brag sometimes about our Sunny mild weather in the middle of winter, but us CA forget to mention how we sometimes have 90-105 degree weeks sometimes from May all the way to November. That get's old sometimes when you actually want a spring or fall!

Oh just thinkin' about you all over there. Will be there hopefully by next summer and I am hoping you won't be quite this bad by next July/Aug. Will see eh? Ciao.

It's pretty warm! I'm just thankful I don't have to work outside right now. For those who do, I guess they just need to drink plenty of liquids and try not to get too hot! Great advice, huh? It should start cooling off around the end of September. Some rain would help tremendously but I don't know if we have any rain in the forecast. Even that would only help temporarily...it will be so humid afterwards it will seem worse than it is now! Kentucky weather...you gotta love it!

I live in So. California near the beach and this has been the coolest summer I can ever remember and I have lived here my whole live....we have rarely reached more than 80 degrees and most of the days have been in the mid 70's.

I've been in Kentucky for the last few Septembers and it has been gorgeous and the temperature just right - I was there in May and it was so nice - I think Kentucky really has a fairly short summer compared to many places...but when it gets hot and humid, it is pretty miserable.

Yup. I guess the kids and I will be house-bound (or maybe flea market bound... who knows)

Ah, it's all good. Fall is just around the corner and well worth the wait. Having a warm summer makes it that much better. Can't wait for the fall foliage and taking weekend trips to the RRG.

Lucky you. I live in Thousand Oaks, lots of 95 degree days this year. Last week or so we even saw a week straight when compared to Lexington or Fort Mitchell we were "higher" humidity than them [un-usually so] Ugh.

What brings you back and forth from CA to KY? Family? Ciao.
