I am from Frederick Maryland. Used to be a small farm town and now is the 2nd biggest city in MD (1st is Baltimore). I have lived here all my life except for a 10 month stint in Panama City Florida w/ my ex-husband.
Frederick is one of those places that no matter how much you complain about it and want to get out....it sucks you in. LOL
I grew up in Georgia, but now I live in Alabama. We aren't really having a heat wave, 99 is our usual for this time of year, LOL. We only have two seasons - 10 months of warm/hot weather, and 2 months of not-summer.
Just looked, it is *only* 90 right now, feels like 97. But the humidity is only 65% today, which is lower than usual. Ah, walking outside is like stepping into a brightly lit sauna.
I was born in Georgia, raised in Phoenix and now live minutes from San Francisco.
Sadly, no heat for us and I think we are in the only place in the country that is not having a warm summer. This is the coldest summer I've experienced since moving her 10 years ago. Yesterday we might have hit 60 but the fog never cleared and we haven't seen the sun for more than an hour or two a day in weeks. It's so sad that the kids and I are heading to the lake for the rest of the month just to get a piece of real summer before they go back to school!
I'm from Nebraska. It is hot here but not too unusual for August. The last 5 days have been the worst though temps in the 90s, heat index 105 . It is supposed to cool down back to the 80s this weekend and I hope it does.
Well I live in San Antonio, TX. (Not from here originally) It is hot - high 90's right now but it is sure "cooler" than last summer where we had 45 days above 100. This summer we haven't hit over 100 at all.
