105 heat index, NW Columbus, Ohio right now.

It seems to get like this here every 10 years or so... 1999 was hot, so was 1988... last night was the hottest evening I remember here since my birthday in 88... low temp overnight of 80... yikes. Looks like some storms are coming though so hopefully we (and my garden plants) get a break.

They're at at least accustomed to it. Far from normal here to have a heat index in the 120's. I like heat too, but there is a limit.

Finally cooling off



@ 2:45pm:

Effort, PA
102.7 F
Feels Like 116

Panama, Panama
91 F
Feels Like 105

Anyone else on the east coast with a weather station?

If you have AC, double check that your filters are clean. A dirty filter can greatly reduce efficiency, and on a day like today can be the difference between maintaining and not maintaining temp.

A sprinkler to lightly mist the condenser outside will also help if you are having difficulties cooling the house. Too much water on it is not good as you can cause liquid refrigerant to enter compressor(not a good thing). Just a sprinkler that will moisten the cooling fins will help greatly

I live in Michigan and we had a heat wave for the last week or so. It is finally nice out today with a cool breeze. I think our heat index hit 105 yesterday, and it has been 95 degrees out for the last 3 days. I normally try and keep my air down (up? :p) to save on heat costs but I have had it running for quite some time this last week.

Okay, made it back home from the oven. It must be frying people's brains out there because I saw 2 different accidents (1 happened directly in front of me).

I walked outside to check the mail... not that terrible, the air is moving. Probably because some big storm is coming. 109 heat index at the OSU airport.

My favorite weather tweet from yesterday:

"@Fake_Dispatch Fake Dispatch



BREAKING: Just found out what the opposite of wind chill is. Stuck my arm out the car window and pulled back in a charred stump."

I am in Central CT. Temp 96-101 with heat index 110. Had to put AC in just to keep fishes cool, hot fish swim sideways. Not good. All the tanks are in my living room. Funny thing there is no AC in the bedrooms. Really don't want the electric bill.
