I saw this sign while riding around town last week and made my husband turn around so I could take a picture! It’s funny, right? It may not be “hot as hell” like the sign implies, but temperatures have been hotter than normal for a while!
In June, we had 4 days where we hit 100+.
In July, we had 29 days with highs in the 90s and 18 of those days were 95 degrees or hotter.
So far this month, we have already hit the century mark twice!
Our average highs are in the lower 90s, so it’s not supposed to be THIS hot! Mother Nature has cranked up the heat this summer for us in addition to a good chunk of the country.
Dallas, Texas, has had 42 consecutive days of triple digits!
Memphis, Tennessee, is undergoing the hottest summer on record.
No real relief is in sight this week, so do your best to stay cool! I’m using the hot weather as a good excuse to eat lots of ice cream J
