  1. Wish I could get there. I live in Maine, usually one of the cooler spots in the country, a state where many people from ‘hot spots’ come for the summer or a vacation to escape the heat. Today it hit 96 degrees, with a heat index of 104, was nearly as hot yesterday & the day before, is supposed to be nearly as hot tomorrow. We are supposed to drop back into the 70’s by Sunday, with nighttime temps in the 50’s, more usual weather for us. Last night’s overnight low was 74; the dewpoint has been hovering around 72-74, also nearly unheard of for Maine.

    Seattle sounds beautiful. Enjoy it. Anchorage, Alaska, with a high of 63 today, was also sounding appealing. I am NOT a beach bunny or hot weather lover. I send cooling energy to the 80& or so of this country currently in the grip of a heatwave.

  2. *Gasp* High of 104 in New York and humid, with a heat index somewhere north of 110. Leila, if you can stand this weather, you can have it – I’ll even gift-wrap it for you if you want.

  3. I like this cool weather here in Oly WA, but, a week’s worth of rain in the summer is a little punishing, especially since we can count on months of gray, rainy weather throughout most of the rest of the year. It’s probably my Vitamin D deficiency speaking, though — I would take overcast rainy 60s over 90s or above any day of the year.

  4. I’m pleased with the cool weather down in Portland. My tomato and pepper plants, on the other hand, are most unhappy about it. ;-)
