It is really terrible.I cooked out last night after sundown it was 97. Friday I needed to get my motorcycle serviced for my ride north and rode to Charlotte, NC some 100 miles from here. On the way home 4 lanes of traffice deadlocked and it was 106 on the bike with all that heat coming off the pavement, thought I was going to have a stroke. I rode in the breakdown lane to the next exit and found a steakhouse and drank a half gallon of iced tea then felt like eating a shrimp cocktail very slowly until the sun went down! This is hotter than I ever remember to it be 'round here. I cannot wait to up in the environs of Maine and the Mariitimes! The wife has finally decided to retire in December, Maine here comes a Tarheel and a Kiwi!

I don't miss NC summers one bit! I made it through 3 summers there and I'm grateful every summer not to live there anymore. The humidity is what gets to me big time. I went to AZ last year in July and because of the dry heat it makes it so much more bearable. Summers in Maine have been amazing (although this summer has been very soggy. But I'm not complaining!).

North Carolina. I am from away. I don't say anything correctly in Maine language, although I have people in the dirt up there for centuries. I wasn't born there, but plan on spending my final days there. Sorry for the confusion my friend.

I hear ya Kiwi. I'm in Va. My air is broken and it gets to 99 in my living room in the late afternoon. With storms here the other night half of the town is without power. I plan on getting back to Maine, just going to be a bit longer.

North Cack-ah-lackey

I cant wait to get back to the northeast myself -- I've hated NC summers ever since I moved down here. 98% humidity with 100+ degree weather is the pits!

I am so grateful to be in Eastport after last Friday's storm. Most of WV including my house in Charleston is without power, water, ice and gasoline. We're told it will be at least this coming weekend before we get power back. Hubby left town Saturday and got here Sunday just to escape the 100+ temps.

Thank you Maine for your natural air conditioning.
