Or at least in southern Louisiana! The temperature is forcasted to be 92 here tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday. It looks like summer is here and here to stay. How is the weather in your area? Have you hit the 90's yet?

Hey Karen, yeah summer seems to have bloomed. here in TN we always seem to jump from winter straight to summer. Yesterday it hit 84, and I almost turned on the air con. I thought better of it and it cooled down last night and today. Although its raining like its going to cause the next world flood. We need it however we are sjut coming out of a very long drought.

Sounds like it is on the way! But you have a ways to go to catch up with us :) You can keep the rain. I don't like days and days of rain. Too much for me. I have to see the sun!!

Shhhh...oh, please! I'm not a summer person to begin with and hate the hot, humid weather..LOL...I suspect we'll go to a 90 reading temperature sure enough in the Big Apple...lately the highest it's gotten is 80-degrees and today it's been really humid as well.

I hear ya Pye, I can handle the 8o's but when it starts that climb into the 90's and it is so sticky outside that even a shower will not provide relief I am not enjoying summer very much. I am more a winter person myself.

I love the warm weather but don't like going to work and coming out to a blazing car. And the humidity factor added in doubles the Uncomfort zone!

No we haven't hit the 90's yet up here in Canada. I know some provinces have had warm weather but we in Calgary haven't had summer yet and it is now the middle of July. I don't think we are going to get much of a suumer this year. We have nothing but rain rain and more rain. Even if it is nice during the day we get rain in the evening. Since this discussion is 3 months old I think you geot an early summer, you are lucky for that. I wish it would warm up and we would have summer, this year, but it doesn't look too good.

I am in Atlanta and it hasn't been on the 90s but the 80s are pretty consistent. It's just way too hot. I must say, I appreciate not being pregnant this summer. Last summer I was miserable. I froze my husband out many days. It's not too bad this year (for me that is). Enjoy the weather!

Ah I can relate to the pregnancy during the summer here in the south! My oldest was born in September and that was so miserable!

Here in Omaha we are not in 90s yet. Today its 52 here, after so long wait we are getting at least this much warm. They are saying that the weekend will be rainy and cold. I am getting so tired of this cold weather here.

I think I would rather be HOT than endure cold and rainy weather. I'm with you. That kind of weather sucks! I hope some of this warm weather drifts up to you guys soon!

We hit the 90s a couple weeks ago, and then went back down a little. The humidity makes it at least feel like the temperature is in the 90s. Today it is in the mid-80s and it is sticky. Tornado weather is here, yipee.

I can't believe all the tornadoes so far this year! And yes, May is the month where they are more likely! I hope they don't pick up, we have had more than our share already this year!

Water Iris - Blooming Water Iris which sure are beautiful
I already had the 90's days and they are now gone. Its a chilly 62 degrees with a slight breeze. My Louisiana Water Iris would like to go home, as they stopped blooming.

I'm thinking this is going to be a scorcher of a summer.
