How is the Weather?

Very interesting range of weather. I didn't expect too many similarities, was just curious. I know each climate has its challenges. I guess you're well adapted to the heat. I'm dieing when it gets to 35c I can't imagine what 50 would be like. And honestly with the cold the 5-15c range with rain is my least favorite weather. Just downright cold and miserable.

T&MM, where did you live in the midwest?

We've been having temps in the 90s for a few weeks already. The daily rains started this week. They are usually an afternoon thing but we've had rain all day once already and this morning I woke to a thunderstorm. It took me 2 hours to complete chores this morning dodging between downpours.
Gotta love 'em.

Saw something I aint seen in almost 2 weeks dry concrete on the drive.!! It's extremely steamy out even though the humidity is reported low. Everything is evaporating Jolie' and I went walking and for the first time in a while she didn't come back with muddy feet. I may possibly mow the front tomorrow.

Only-borders, I lived in Illinois for a year and Michigan for two years. I was really fortunate to live close to the lake in Michigan so our summers were quite nice with the breeze off the lake and not too humid. We also got spared huge amounts of snow. We would get 4-6 inches when up north would get 18". The summer in Illinois was horrible. So much humidity that it almost looked like fog and tornado warnings.

I am in Wisconsin, so you must have a good idea of the fickle weather we have here. Weather is interesting to me. It can change in a heartbeat and be so different a mile away.

Progress the only part of Jolie' muddy today is her toes I was able to mow the front yard but the back yard has standing water by the fence it is only mud now so maybe dry enough to mow tomorrow.

The weather in the Midwest can be crazy.  In Illinois we had a fall day that was so warm I went out in shorts and a t-shirt to wash the car.  Two days later I have a photo of our Miniature Schnauzer in a sweater playing in the snow in the yard.  Another time there was a tornado warning and in about 30 minutes the day went from beautiful and sunny with fluffy white clouds in the sky to completely overcast with the most unusual and creepy looking grey-green clouds.

We get from 70 to 90 inches of rain a year on average. I have seen it rain 4 inches in one hour. It is finally dry enough to mow the back yard and Peg is gonna wipe down the kitchen cabinets nd such which is speckled with mud from Jolie coming in and shaking off. If I work hard I will get most done fore Monday when the rain starts again

Wow, Cappy, that is a lot of rain!  I used to live in Oregon and Washington and we got a lot of rain but not that much!  So here is what happens in the desert when we get 4-5" of rain in two hours (a years worth).  It happened in just the right place to take out a few miles of Interstate 15.  In the video the driver is looking north toward Utah and all that water is running between the southbound and northbound lanes.  

There is a swear word at around 2:00 so mute if you don't like that sort of thing.
