As we reach the pinnacle of this week's heat-dome induced heat-wave, the heat index could get as high as 108 in New York and 110 in Washington D.C. today, making it officially too hot for all human activity.

For once, we in New Mexico have been having cooling rain showers which means we are not suffering in summer as we usually do.

Carrie. that's interesting! I don't keep up with the thermometer. When it reaches 100 in Phoenix, I don't bother with numbers -- it's HOT. However, this summer it doesn't seem so hot to me and others have remarked that it's not as hot as in the past.

We usually have a greeting and a reassurance to one another.

"It's hot."

"Yes, it's hot."

Translation Yes, it's hot. We're not imagining it.

These days we're greeting each other with "Hi. How are you." LOL

We have had some totally unbearable days here where breathing is even difficult. On those days I just catch up indoors.

Next summer I am going to let the weeds be my garden, takes to much precious water to keep things green outside when it is 95 plus.

we experience 110 F regularly during our very long summers down here in South Africa, I guess one adapts, although the heat does make everything very UNCOMFORTABLE...

We were at 35 c yesterday but our humidex was at 75. These summers are getting way to hot anymore and whats weird is places that are supposed to be hot like this are on the cooler side. You can't even breath out there so I don't go out. I love spring and fall much better weather.

I am thankful for the fact Florida is surrounded by major bodies of water which helps to keep our temperatures in check. It's hot, but we don't usually get more than mid 90's in this part. Further south I suppose they get hotter. It is unbelievable that 108 is NYC and DC is 110, wow. I'll stay down here. I also don't like the freezing cold either, so I'll stay put.

I finally broke down and had my air going 4-5 hrs each day for the last three days - 3rd floor apt. The rest of the time I had fans going - not too bad that way. The humidity is what I have a hard time with.

Noted. After a record-tying 39 days of temps 100 or more, we had the monsoons show up...a bit earlier than usual. Feels like late Aug. here in Tucson....able to open doors & windows in late afternoon some days. As I saw the weather in DC and NY top ours, one weather forecaster explained that we are having an extremely rare occurrence....the jet stream is moving east to west, rather than west to east. Unfortunately, there were no explanations other than that. hmmmmm......
