Far from normal. Lots of records falling.

I wish we would get a thunderstorm at least. We need rain in a bad way.

I think I might be in the lead so far...heat index of 120 here in northern VA.

If power does go out, I'll probably be solely responsible because I've got the AC cranked up so high there's icicles hanging from the ceiling. I'm literally about to go get socks because my feet are cold, lol.

Wow...120 is just nuts. Just hit 115 here Never thought it would get that hot in NE PA. It's not even noon yet!

My AC hit a wall at 72. Not going any lower(log cabin needs some sealing). I face due south also, so nothing but sun all day. And when it's this hot, if you can keep 74, you are doing good.

I'm in upstate NY. Hot as heck here yesterday too, took your breath away. I put a couple ice packs from the freezer in the filter on the back of my tank hoping it would cool it off a little cause it was up to 80 but its all it ended up doing was melting the ice packs. The worst was I got an AC for Christmas and went to hook it up and thought it was too wide for my windows, had to rig it up with a blanket out the front door for awhile, then when i went to bed I got it in the bedroom window so it works good, it just has the back out though, not all the way like it should be. Supposed to be a "reasonable" 90 today where I live but I will believe it when I see it.

Update @ 11:45:



At least the humidity(%) dropped somewhat, even though that's only because the temp went up...
