    Best I can remember 2012 was the hottest summer I experienced here in N Central Indiana in the last 20 years or so. This year hasn’t even come close. Sure it has been miserable some days with temps around 90 F and relatively high humidity with no breeze but we have not had one day where it has hit 100 F for the past several years here.

    BTW during a typical summer a good portion of the grass on my acre will turn brown by the 1st or 2nd week of July. Not this year. I have only skipped on week mowing this whole summer, all the other weeks if I had not mowed it, the following week I would have been mowing hay!

      Mr. h: Here in SW Ohio, same thing, still mowing each damn week. It was pretty warm, but not dry, and it turns out my grass likes the heat just fine so long as it rains once in a while (I’ll water my lawn right after I get vaxxed!). And I know it was hot out west, but hottest evah? Not.

    When it shifted from global warming to global cooling around 2000, the year 1997 was extremely hot in Denmark. In august all fish died in the innermost part of the largest fjord, Mariager fjord, where I now live.

    As I understand, we are in a cool phase of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation. In addition to this, the Suns magnetic activity is extremely low these years, something like the Maunder Minimum in the Little Ice age from 1500 to 1800. Observing the next 2-3 years’ climate will be interesting.
