    We've had 38 days of over 100 degrees so far this year. Today got to 102. I'm ready for winter. Anyone else?

    It's not as bad here, but still hot & humid most days. Every time the heat is bothering, I keep telling myself, winter is not far off, & soon, it will alot colder than we wish it was. This too shall pass..... Thank goodness our seasons change & we don't have the same weather year round!

    Really? I'm sure not ready for NH winter weather! We soak up all the heat we can during our short summers. But, I do agree, it's been pretty hot and humid.

    I just heard on the this evening's news that the St. Louis area can expect excessive heat through the first 9 days of August! I don't want winter, but I can't handle this heat either. Hope everyone stays cool and use their A/Cs and fans.

    I can appreciate that coming from basically anywhere outside of the Pacific Northwest. You guys have gotten hammered. On the other hand, we just started getting summer weather so I'm not burned out yet!! I feel bad for you guys every morning, I just don't think I could stand that heat for that long!

    we've had a pretty warm/humid summer so far also- i just remind myself- in January when it's 20 below zero and windy- i will be remembering this hot-humid summer...
    i am a big fan of fall- but i don't want to rush it= January will be here too soon

    When I was whining about the heat I got a memory of last winter and the winter before that and I've figured it out this way: I may be hot but I can go inside with fans and air conditioning. In the winter when I'm cold I can go inside with heat and covers--the difference is I don't have to shovel rain! :D

    Never!! Nothing is worth having winter weather again. We've had several 100 and above days too. Yes it's too hot but much better than winter weather...lol

    No No No No No, a thousand times NO, I hate winter I hate being cold, toes go numb, fingers go numb, Just can't take the cold
    I am ready for fall though, would love a break in the heat, but no freezing temps!
    Only problem i have with fall, is all those leaves getting in my pond. that just means more work for me.

    Count me in too. Some nice cool days would be great for doing a lot of quilting. When it is so hot I can't sew!

    We have only had 25 days over 100 here but there is no end in sight. Tomorrow is predicted to be 109. I am really ready for it to cool off.

    I am loving Winter.
    I hate summer! Heat stifles me.
    When it is cool I have heaps of energy to get things done.
