    “Experts say the heat in 2016 is due to increased CO2 levels.”
    And this truck drivers unsolicited and unpaid for opinion is that it’s just summer weather.

    My yard here in central Indiana is still green though we haven’t had any rain for several days. It has been quite humid though with heavy dews at night. The rain has been passing to the south of us though “Accuweather” shows a chance each day through the weekend. At least the grass growth has slowed.

    It has been hot, in the 90’s for a few weeks and the grass is finally starting to wilt a bit. It’s mid summer in the South what else do you expect?

    We have been spoiled by the nice cool weather the last few summers.

      It has been a rather average summer here. Highs in the low to mid 90s most days and drier than average, particularly on the few days of upper 90s. No 100s that I am aware of, but they’re rather rare anyway, more-so away from the big cities.

    DC has had 6 straight 95 degree days, but only one 100 degree day. That is compared to eleven 100+ days in 1930.
