Something really special about a warm summer evening after a blistering day.  Summer is the greatest! (Until winter)

Or fall, only season that sucks is spring.

I’m a personal autumn hater.  Losing light to me is misery until the snow flies.  Probably a tie between winter and summer for my favorites

Yeah so I hit 90/78 today, pretty much the same in Sandwich.

Tomorrow I have off and I go back to work Saturday when the weather should be glorious

WHO should be more considerate?

They ran the A.C at 70 during a Stretch of excessive heat, who is whining. They ran it sunday nite when burlington vermont smashed a 150 year old record for record high lows. Please. 

Please what? The primary job of ac is to drop humidity more than temps, setting a residential ac to 70 when it’s 96 degrees out with ridiculous dew points is excessive, I don’t have a commercial chiller on the roof of my house, it’s a house. 78 is incredibly comfortable. 70% of people in Vermont don’t even have ac, grow some.

When I see yours, mine, And then Scooters and Dendrites all hit 80 twice in 2 days this week ..it means it was all very real. Especially from the latter 2 who have always been the biggest doubters and accusers 

But, as you are fond of saying, it's not representative of the air mass as a whole so it's "fake".  ;) We have fake cold, fake heat and now fake dews.

Up here there are stats to support it but how can you call something a record or never seen before, while also saying it's opinion based?  Opinions are very hard to use as record markers.

Yeah, NNE put up some impressive records.  Unless there is data to show for it, opinion does not set the record.  Years from now all that will be left is the data and when the data shows other events like this, even as recent as 2013 at my place, it doesn't stand out.  Up there yes, down here...not so much.

Different strokes for different folks . September , October  in that order, best two months of the year . Football , foliage , beer , warm days and cool nights .

Lol.  So you rent the place and get mad when the renters use ac in a week of heat wanting 78.  Ether raise the rent of stfu.

I’d rank this heat event in the top 2 or 3 since moving to this location in 1998. 2010 was hotter, but this seemed more humid and the HI was brutal.

August 1988 still impacted me the most,  but I was living in Foxboro at the time.

I haven’t woke up to 77° in a long time. It’s gross outside. 
Thunder though. Should be here by 7a. 
This airmass can't get out of here fast enough

Heard thunder on approach, but nada once the rain began. Just a breezy moderate rain with 73°. Sitting at the edge of the garage taking the fropa in.

I keep my thermostat 72 in summer and 68 in winter.   More warmth next week.  Thicknesses are stubbornly high >576 over us on many days.  Fropa days and 2 days immediately after are Steve’s doodle doo doos.
