    It's really hot in Illinois. I thought I'd show everyone just how hot it is.

    One of our ice cream trucks couln't take the heat.

    Hahaha, that's cute! I'm laughing but not at the weather! This is the worst summer I can ever remember living in Ohio.
    It's been like a steam bath every single day!! If I didn't have AC I'd probably be in a rubber room by now :D

    That is cute. It's been over a hundred here in Texas for 15 straight days. Today it will be 105.

    I saw a sign on a church billboard that said:

    'If you think it's hot here...'

    I thought that was a good attention getter. I'm sure some people won't get it.

    Good picture

    But this is the type of summer I remember as a kid -

    POOL SUMMER!!!!!!!!!

    Not like last couple of years. I had to do the 'slow dip' to get into the pool the water was sooooo cool even on an occasional HOT day.

    This summer I dive right in! ... even early in the morning!

    The heat index in Memphis has been 110 - 117 most every day for ever...... There has been 16 people die in the city this summer from the heat.

    Love, Love, Love this picture. We are having one of the "coolest" summers ever here in the Ca.Bay Area. Temperatures are 10 to 15 degrees lower then normal. High today should be 73.

    Love the photo! We have had a hot, muggy summer here too. Very little rain, the lawns are brown, some of the trees are turning color early due to the stress. The tomatoes are small, although they do taste good. Today it is dry and in the low 80's, not bad. It doesn't look like we will get into the 90's this week, which is a huge relief. I hope all you get cool weather soon!

    Come on in!! Have a 30 foot diameter pool, so it holds a lot of people. But now that school is in session, I am the only one using it. Always nice to have company!

    Lexington isn't THAT far of a drive but beware----I'll raise the water level considerably when I get in. LOL

    I was at a small carnival that our church had for the little kids today doing face painting and the lady that had been operating the fish pond was getting ready to pack it up. I yelled, "Wait a minute" and went over to cool my burning feet. It was only about 4 inches of water but it sure felt good. Came home and got in the tub with cool water and turned the jets on for about an hour.
