Kev- I'm bathing in 100 Degree heat, and dry. If its not 100, its very close. Its one of the hottest summers in years, according to locals. I wish it would rain. Luckily, I get to escape the heat for Mexico next week for almost a full week. So most of the porch plants come into the bathroom of my apartment, as they'll lose less moisture inside than out.

Still an unusually cold winter here, and a long one. Today forecast high of 17C, which is getting closer to what we would expect this stage of late winter. We've only hit 20C once in the last 8 weeks, and had many days that didn't quite hit 10C. I hate winter.

What I'd give for those temps in winter here :shock: , they are similar to our summer temps this year, seriously.

Kev, We've had a helluva lot of rain lately and I havent watered the garden in weeks, but We've still got August and September to go so hang in there 8)

LOL, I hate winter as well and I know for sure you would hate mine as well.

The weather has not been too bad here today. It's been bright and we managed to hit a high (LOL) of 20C.

The wet weather that came up from the SW had been forecast to hit us earlier in the week, but thankfully it went out to the east of us.

102°F yesterday and 100°F today. Many days in the 90's ... no rain. I've never owned an air conditioner ... today I bought one and it's worth it's weight in gold.

Cheers, Barrie.

It got to 103F here on Tuesday.... unbelieveable. Yesterday Seattle exceeded its previous all time period of record high temperature of 100F, reaching 103. Other locations across western Washington passed 110F... the highest 114F in Chehalis and 112F in Kirkland. Amazing!!

Barrie I guess you were lucky to find an air conditioner still in stock. We seem to have a popsicle shortage around here :lol:

Those are some pretty hot temps for the PNW marine areas. Has the heat been as prevelant in Portland? Victoria BC has been noticably cooler and I've not seen temps reported above 32°C (88°C)

I was lucky to grab one of the last few available in town from Sears. It was like bees around a nest, with people looking over and buying the last AC's.

We're forecast to cool down into the upper 80's (30°C) by Saturday.

Cheers, Barrie.

We got to 107 degrees on Tues. with 110 on Wed. and we broke the all time record! We have also surpassed the record of 12 days above 90 for the month of July and we still have Aug and Sept. heat ahead of us!! So whomever is hogging all the rain, return it to those of us in the PNW as our webbed feet are all dried up.

Brookings typically has depressed temperatures when there are heat waves in the vicinity. Today is no exception. We had a high temp. of 14C on the coast while on "the other side of the hill" -- a 2 hr. drive inland -- it got up to 44C. Nothing but fog and chill for us, though.
