    George, don't know if you're on the Missouri side or the Kansas side of KC, but I'm in central Kansas myself. As you know, we get this crap every summer, which I hate, Though your side of the state is usually higher in humidity than ours.

    We've already been having that kind of heat in North Texas. Only 98 degrees right now though. That's kind of nice!

    I thought it rained a little the other day, but it was just so hot that the sky was sweating.

    It's only 102 with 14% humidity here in S. Az. Which for us, in June, really ain't that bad.

    I left central Kansas about 10 years ago......for Houston. On the plus side, an open tin of tobacco takes a looong time to dry out with our humidity down here

    KC is sounding more like the desert than the tropics.

    100 today in Colorado Springs. Definitely warmer than normal, but still dry, so it’s bearable.

    93 today and 84% humidity. I'm one of those people that will never complain about how cold or rainy it is in the winter. I would happily swap.

    It's in the nineties here every day. We're awaiting a new HVUC system to replace a 13-year-old a.c. and a furnace at 26. We're scheduled for July 10, with an option on any cancellations. The "consultant" (salesman) is stopping by for the deposit tomorrow and bringing a window unit for the bedroom on the meantime. I think the lower two levels of this old tri-level house still has some cooling, but my wife can't feel it. She has meds that don't tolerate heat so well. After the last heat wave in the sauna, it took two days to get back to normal to be able to think about new systems. The old timers, pre-a.c., built their homes carefully to catch air flow breezes by placement of windows and screen doors, and survived outdoor work and napped under the shade trees. Subdivision builders had no such ideas. Age doesn't improve your heat resistance. My old dad never air conditioned the house, lived to be 89 (licensed to drive without glasses), so we enjoyed sleeping on the porches. That was in the north.

    Just getting you acclimated to a future in Florida, you ol’ goat

    Inlaws live not too far from you George, at lake of the Ozarks. We haven’t heard from them in a bit. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

    Here in South-Central Maine, they're saying that at least four of the next seven days will be in the 90s.

    It’s about 90 in the shade here in South Louisiana. Kind of pleasant as long as there is a breeze.

    bigpond, we used to live 9 miles from the Lake of the Ozarks. Kansas typically can have some brutally hot temperatures in summer. Seems like at least once each summer 1 or more places in the state will have the nation's highest temperature that day.

    Here in Slidell - 30 miles northeast of New Orleans - the weather app says it's 94 but feels like 105. Fortunately, according to my digital thermometer and barometer, it's only 92 degrees and 48% humidity. With about a 10 mile wind coming across Lake Pontchartrain and plenty of shade under the trees in the yard, it was comfortable enough to sit outside and have a pipe.

    I've always found the weather apps to be slightly off because of where the reporting station is located. If the temperature gages are located near brick buildings or a building covered with siding, the temperature can read 5 - 10 degrees hotter depending on the time of day and direction of the sun.

    I am glad we have a good admin and responsible moderators.

    Ah feels like my home city in summer. 110F to 130F

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.
