Las Vegas is HOT! but we are supposed to be hot, so nothing new. We will drop out of the 100s into the 90s this weekend. That is a nice cooling trend for us. Now, only 5-6 weeks of 100s left and we should be OK. For those TP members that want to come out to Vegas for a cheap vacation, Oct. is our best month. You can still wear shorts/t-shirts, but not die of the heat. Come on out, we need the business!

From Florida:

The good news for us is El Nino has greatly diminished the chances for hurricanes and tropical storms this summer. So far it has been a very quiet season and that's the way we like it here!

The not-so-great news is how consistently above 90 degrees and high humidity it has been. While that is essentially normal for Florida Summers, we're really cooking right about now!

The wife and I are taking off to Georgia's Mountains in about 2 weeks. I hope to find some nice cool water to dive into and chill out for awhile.

Hopefully no hurricane will form while we're away. Fortunately our homeowners insurance is ready for whatever!

I just got back from Ireland and it was horrid. Windy and wet. In Scotland it was clear blue sky for about an hour or so, then it rained all the way to the Scotland/England border, about another 30 minutes. Once in England it rained or was dark grey cloud all the way to Brighton on the south coast. The UK was promised by the 'expert' weathermen a long hot summer. So far the summer hasnt happened and regardless of whether you are in London, Liverpool, Ipswich or Inverness, it has been one of the worst summers I have ever known. Who finances these people? They havent got a clue.

The British tabloid newpapers seem to be blaming the weather forecasters for the bad weather. So they were wrong about the "barbeque summer". The fact is, we probably have some of the best forecasters in the world, seeing as most Brits are weather obsessed, and the weather is very changeable therefore in need of closer analysis than just "scorchio". Its just that long-term forecasts, ie 3 months ahead, are really very unreliable anyway. They work mostly on averages and trends. It's not an exact science. However, normal weather forecasts, ie two or three days ahead are usually pretty accurate (not counting the 1987 "hurricane"). Perhaps because the last two summers simply didn't happen, awful they figured the odds were we'd get a little bit of sun this year.

I would disagree that this is one of the worse summers ever known, the UK has had far worse, particulalry 2007 and 2008 which truly awful. It has not been cold and we have had more than 5 sunny days since May- that counts for a good summer in this country!

Raining in Nashville. I drove to meet my son for dinner. The traffic was terrible as always.
