Lincolnshire? Isn't that where Scunthorpe is? I hope they're alright. That city has had enough problems (mostly content filters).

Northern Illinois is suffering something of a drought. We haven't had an honest-to-goodness storm in a month.

Hopefully that cold front in the Northeast US will blow further south. They need it badly.

I heard one story about a place down in the south US that had 105 one day and expected the next then the next after that to be 104 if it declines 1 fahrenheit every 2 days without extra heat added it'll fall below 32 C in about 32-33 days, so yeah hopefully they get something soon.

South US? That's KS right now!
Canadian benchmark: Smack-dab in the middle of the US, eh?

I am on the coast of Maine. It has been in the 70s F/low 20s C here during the day. Much nicer than at home in Maryland, where it was 101F/38C today with a 111F/43C heat index. In Athens, Georgia (my former hometown), they broke an all-time record that dated back to the dust bowl in the 1930s - today's high: 109F/42C. Thankfully the dew point was only in the 40s.

Tropical storm Debby here; we had 14.25" rain in three days at the beginning of the week. Fortunately no aftereffects for me. Expecting upper 90s for the next few days.

Friday in the Washington DC area was 104F. After freakishly powerful storms passed through we have 4 deaths, 800,000 people without power and probably 80% of the traffic lights out. About 1 in 5 gas stations has power. This afternoon it was 97F and it will be the same for the next several days. The local power companies estimate it will take all week to get back to normal.

I've never seen it so windy as on Friday night; it lasted about 10 minutes for us, with gusts feeling like 50mph.

That storm is the one that missed my tiny part of Chicagoland. Gah, we still haven't had rain (though the rest of Chicagoland is fine now).

(PS Lake effect for the loss)
