Same here, I'm just dripping right now. I don't like humidity and I'm really not happy about it being here this soon. It feels like it should be August nit the beginning of June, We do have a slight breeze once in a while so that's helping some but I would really love a rainstorm right about now!

We only have a very slight breeze at the tree tops here. It doesn't seem to be getting down to ground level. Such drastic changes in the weather these days! I agree about the humidity. I doubt that anyone loves it except maybe bugs. When I was out watering my plants, I was swarmed! They love our body "odor" and perspiration really seems to spread that around 1,000-fold! After the last few "rainstorms" we've had, I don't want to see another one for a long time! A nice, slow, soaking rain would do just fine!

Hehe. It's winter here and so far it hasn't been too cold, just a few nights below 0 celsius (I think that's 32F). I would say I would swap you but I can't stand heat unless I'm at the beach or a swimming pool. Find a nice shade tree and an ice cream and you'll enjoy it much better.

Yes, it is the same here. I'm sure my electric bill will be through the roof this month as the air conditioning has been on non-stop for about a week now. It is just so humid anymore. I guess Spring is over even though Summer is not supposed to start until June 21st. Go figure!

Yep. Very strange weather we've been having. In our forecast, we're supposed to have 90+ degrees for the next 5 days, then it's supposed to "cool off" to the upper 80's. I hope my poor veggies don't keel over in this heat! I know they love the humidity, but it's just too darned hot! Take care!

We were having really high humidity for ahwile here in Nebraska and it was setting off really bad storms there has been tornados, hail, winds, flooding you name it. Today is actually really nice I think it is about 70 degrees outside with a light breeze.

Can I come over and play... now? Please????? I just went through my first 2 tornado warnings because of this weird weather. Hot and humid during the day, then cooler and much less humid during the night... perfect for brewing up some monster storms!

Here in Florida it normally starts to get hot around June, but it is exceptionally hot. It is over 100 out there right now, but it is at least not real humid, dry hot heat. Feels like the desert.

I would much rather have dry heat! It never feels as hot as it really is. We're usually about 15-20 degrees cooler around this time of year. It's usually a gradual thing. But this year we had such a mild Winter, short Spring, and what looks like a long, hot Summer. I sure hope not! We're kinda thin-skinned up here in the northern half of the country. LOL

Sure, I'll be glad to send you some heat and sunshine, as long as you take some humidity along with it! I'm definitely a "sunny, warm weather person", but this is ridiculous! We had one day, I believe it was just last week, where it didn't even reach 60 degrees outside! Now we're in the middle of a heat wave. This is July or August weather, not early June! I think we'll be ordering pizza and Chinese delivery for awhile and give them extra-large tips for being so brave in this sweltering weather). I don't even want to go out to the grocery store. My car wouldn't cool off until I was almost home! Take care. I hope you get some sunshine soon.

I'll be in the heat tonight with a baseball game and a softball game. then turn around and will be out in the heat tomorrow for a baseball tournament. Spring? I didn't see spring. LOL. i'm like you where did it go.? I'm so glad we got our swimming pool up and running, that has kept everyone cool.

That is California on almost any day. We have gotten pretty used to the heat on the west coast.

Well it is the same here today, even though I wouldn't consider it weird because I live in Ohio and this is typical Ohio weather. It isn't odd for it to be 90 degrees one day and 60 the next. The humidity is what I can not handle...ugh, high humidity makes for a sweaty yucky day...stay cool, have a good one!
