Looks our American Nookers have had hot dry weather in the same way the Brits have had a soggy Summer (having said that it is wall-to-wall sunshine here today, and 30 degrees C). Here's hoping everything gets a little more average from hereon in. I'm thinking especially about Mike's and everyone else's gardens.

Weather is the hardest think to ever predict. We can only hope the weather treats us right no matter where we live.

I live in Northern Wisconsin where we refer to it as the frozen tundra. Ha! This summer it has been in the low to high 90's almost everyday, and I can't remember the last time it rained.

I look out of my front window at my yard and I swear I'm back in Texas.

So far, the weather has been average here in San Diego but our two hottest months, August and September, are almost upon us. It can be very hot and humid then. When I taught school, the first month or so was always so difficult for the little ones. My school was not air conditioned and we all suffered.

We just returned home from our honeymoon in Maui, where it was in the low 80's and beautiful the whole time. Landed in LA where it was in the 70's, and back to NY where it's in the 90's. We got a little rain storm last night, but it's hot and humid again.

A late spring with more than average rain, but the hot weather has arrived in Southern Oregon.

Hi

Nice to see good old Blighty is finally! receiving some nice Summer weather, fingers-crossed it will stay like that for at least the duration of the Olympics, in my home country :yho:

More than anything I would really like to see some (good soaking) rain here, my garden, the landscape in general (it's sad to see so many trees in real distress here), needs it badly...

Believe it or not it was (really) nice to head South (Georgia) last week to get away from the heat here, while in Georgia it was in the 80°F's (high 20°C's, low 30°C's) with a little rain each day. Here (back in St Louis) yesterday it topped out at 107°F (42°C), today we cool down to 103°F (39°C) hit 108°F (42°C), then tomorrow we're meant to heat back up to 104°F (40°C), followed by a slightly possibility of some rain on Thursday (but they've been promising rain here for weeks without a drop falling).

Take care, Mike

Edit: Updated today's temperature.

I don't know why but that made me laugh - quintessentially British thing fog!

We've had occasional rain, so my garden is doing fine.

The unusually hot weather has given rise to a growth spurt, which has been good for everything except my greens (which bolted).

We live in the wetlands, so my grass is green and I never water it - at all.......ever!

I live in western Arkansas we have broken numerous high temperature records already. Current heat index is above 105.
The drought conditions are very extreme, we have had less then 2 inches of rain since March.

Strange though Alaska, is having a record breaking cool July.

The drought is getting serious here in Michigan. The farmers had a great start to the season with an unusually warm spring so for the most part the crops have been good. However, if we don't get a good amount of rain soon it could all be undone.

It's been so up and down here in SE Pennsylvania. We've had weeks where it was extremely hot, even pushing over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, to then be followed up by a week or two of lower temperatures in the 70s and 80s.

It has been a bit of a wet summer, here, in Vancouver, but we kind of get used to it as we have so much rain during the winter. It can get a bit challenging when we do not get much of a summer as the winters are quite dark. However, we do have a very lush environment especially in the mountains.
