to my recollection, the wettest rainy season since I moved to south Florida, and we haven't even seen a tropical storm or hurricane yet. :angry::tdown

Care to revisit this comment, Dan? :o

Sunday in L.A. was the hottest day (102) I've felt in a long time. And a miserable heat at that...

Actually, LA can have spells of uncomfortable humidity in the summer. The remnants of tropical weather waft up and can make it muggy and very miserable. Sometimes it even makes its way up here.

Today in SF it was 90 degrees. My house is going to be an oven when I get home. No sleep tonight. Ice cream for dinner. :P

Wimps.

Here in the Land of the All Night Heat Lamp, it was a cool 102...with a low of 71 predicted for tonight.

SOS in this neck o'the woods.

Well, out here in the hills we got SLAMMED with rain today. The front room of my house started to flood and I had to dig a trench along the front of the house to keep it from coming in. Got about 6 inches of rain today and the pond across the road from me flooded and started washing across the road.

It's still raining but thankfully it's calmed down. There was a bad wreck a couple miles from my place, a guy went flying through a water covered road..but unfortunately the road underneath was gone....hit pavement head on and the car flipped over on it's top.

Just another quiet day out in the country.... :D

It snowed in various places in Colorado over the last weekend but since then has warmed back up in the low 80's. I'm not ready for winter yet I have to go to Montrose,Colorado on September 17th and the last thing I want to deal with is snow It's a long trip over some dangerous passes-no fun!

It's still hot. No fog in sight. It cools off in the middle of the night which makes it bearable but it is hot.

Hey, Chris. You had a birthday and disappeared. That must have been some hangover. :P

DC's been HUUUUUMID, hot and rainy. Every year around this time I think "summers gotta be over" and every year I have to wait till at least October for good weather.

In Tel-Aviv we can smell the autumn. In the nights it is not as humid as it used to be two weeks ago and I've started to use my blanket (am I getting old??? :( ). It is still hot and humid during the day time.

Currently in southwestern France which was hit by a storm last night. Small damage, no devastation, no victim.

I must say I enjoyed watching the night sky light up with the storm outbursts, something that is rarely seen inside

Paris.

No damage reported so far in the neighboring Sauternes vineyards where the harvesting has not started yet...

79 degrees; sunny; low humidity; cloudless day; northwest Indianapolis.

Still, Brownie wins because he's in freakin' southern France. :wub:

Brownie: can you describe your lunch to us also? You always make it sound so romantic...

Rachel, lunch was a simple garden tomatoes salad with onions and some garlic followed by an omelet of local 'cepes' mushrooms

that grow during the night after the rain. The 'omelettes aux cepes' was enhanced by garlic too! Then a local ewe cheese and some grapes,

All washed down with an excellent bottle of white Domaine du Tariquet dry wine from the nearby Cotes de Gascogne!

I'm skipping dinner tonight and will prepare for the weekly food market in the main local city (some 2,000 inhabitants) tomorrow.

My wife (and I too) is looking to indulge in the local 'bourru', a fermented grape juice that comes with the early wine harvests.

'Bourru' is not wine but it is more than heady! And absolutely delicious. It is drunk in the immediate vicinity of the harvest areas.

It ferments so much that it can be served in plastic bottles only. No glass bottle for this beverage!

I tried to bring back 'bourru' once back to Paris but this was liking shaking a bottle of champagne during a long travel.

The 'bourru' had to be drunk in the early part of the voyage and since I was the driver I had to choose between driving or drinking.

I'll be drinking the stuff tomorrow :rolleyes:

Life is sweet!
