I know the summers here are never particularly pleasant, but I feel this summer has just been a steambath. The rain doesn't even seem to alleviate it.

Has anyone else noticed this?

My area (DC) has been worse than usual. Steamy with a long stretch of 90 degree plus days. I'm ready for October.

I heard on the news that this past July was the hottest July ever since they started recorded temperatures back in the late 1800s . . . . August will probably go down in the records books too.

I heard that as well, and I believe it.

Ohio has been a steambath too.

This summer has been like living in the tropics.....and I don't like it.

I can't wait for crisp, cool, air.

It's also 10 times worse in any given train station that's underground. There have been seriously times I have gotten to work and thought I was going to faint.

Yeah, seriously. I don't think I've enjoyed any summer less than I've enjoyed this one. It's been pretty awful. Every time I attempt to go outside to a park, I have to come back within 2 hours because it's unberable. I've been pretty much staying at home or going to eat/bars, which is a total buzzkill after looking forward to spending time outdoors.

it is but watch how soon the heat flips to cold overnight.

i like it when the summers have more lower 70s days with
a warm breeze than all this extra heat we've had this year.

Yes, it certainly seems to be much more humid. I am so sick of not being able to open the windows. I wait all winter to keep them open, and i still can't.

I don't mind the dry very hot heat, that is fine, but humidity, kills me and my sinuses.


Can't wait until summer is over, I hate it already.

I think it's both hotter and more steadily HUMID than usual.

I HATE these humid nights that never go below 80 degrees.

But hey, Mr. FEDDERS is running pretty much 24/7 so I have no complaints INDOORS! And the buses are cold.
