    Been a pretty cool spring here in Atlanta. Temps at night in mid to late April were in the upper 40s on some nights and people were complaining about runnning their heaters in April.

    We've had a few hot days lately, but generally it falls back into the upper 70s - low 80s. It's 68 degrees at 6:35pm EDT as I'm writing this, but it's been raining today, although the sun has been out for the last hour or so. High tomorrow is supposed to be 74, with 82 on Sun., but dropping back to the upper 70s for most of the rest of next week. Nice weather in Dixie.

    I could do with a bit of a heatwave. Today, we topped out at 40 degrees. That's fahrenheit, people. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Tulsa, at 92, was two degrees from setting a record high temperature today. It's not too bad considering we've had below normal temps for the last 6 weeks and even set some records for lows. Usually the AC goes on at the beginning of April and, thankfully, I've just had to turn it on in the last week or so.

    Not up in New England. We've been having a very cool wet spring. In fact, the highs tomorrow are supposed to be around 50 degrees. I could stand for a little heat!

    I'm in the same boat. After today, I'm going to get some estimates for A/C.

    my place wasn't so bad. I saw it coming and got it down to 65 last night and sealed it up this morning, think it peaked at 74 in there. I'll get A/C just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    It's been pretty warm here too. Yesterday was 93 when the average is 80. But having lived in New Mexico most of my life, I expect a little heat now and again.

    We're supposed to get temperatures into the low 90's by early next week. About time--and just in time with me buying about US$175 in pool chemicals to keep the algae away. [​IMG] Alas, the automatic pool cleaner broke down and I won't get it fixed until next week. [​IMG]

    For those with dry lawns and high heat: move your wheel height to the highest or second highest setting on your mower, this will make your grass tolerate the heat better. [​IMG]

    PS-Do NOT fertilize during this heat wave unless you want dirt for a lawn [​IMG]

    Yesterday OKC had a record 97 degree high for May 20th.
    It's predicted that another record will be set today.

    Unfortunately this is the week we decided to stain and coat all of the woodwork in the house so we have all of the windows open. I think we'll pitch a tent outside tonight!

    James - How about that great Arkansas humidity... Lovely, isn't it? :wink: Yesterday was about 94° with 60% humidity in Little Rock. Made for a real hot and sticky day.
