Ok, so share the temps in your cities.

Here in Chicago today - this is what my car thermometer showed.

It's been hot and NO rain for like a month.

BTW, I get to play a doubleheader in softball tonite at 6pm. Fun!

Yeah, I just finished a climatology class. We set a one day record Monday ...... For rainfall amount. About 65F and cooling right now. About 20F lower than normal. I'd start a fire, but all of my firewood is too wet!

Yesterday was the first day I hadn't had to wear a jacket since last August. I had to wear one again today though. Having 10 days of summer sucks ass.

WTF? how does it get so hot that far up north? It hasn't even gotten to 90 yet out here in SoCal. Ok, maybe once?

You must be in Oregon cause I am in Portland and own a heating and AC company and 65 and rain SUCKS right now, no track time no sales no fun! I was at Oregon raceway park last Saturday and got hailed on, going to the ridge this Saturday and 50% chance of rain with a high of 66

Yeah, but if the Earth is tens of millions of years old and we've been keeping temperature data for 100 years, isn't judging temps over a few weeks/months or even years, like judging the behavior of a human being's life span from a 1 second sample size?

Either way, it's hot as hell and softball last night was not fun!

Are you guys driving your Eliges in this weather?

With the AC issues and 'baking back' thing, I'm leaving it in the garage. Not to mention that I worry about engine temps in stop and go traffic.

My daily is a 2012 Jeep Wrangler, but it's fully loaded and the AC CRANKS!!! Honestly, it's such a great feeling to get in a freezing cold car on days like this. Love my Elise, but I don't miss it on a 104 degree day when I leave it at home!

I drive the Exige to work every now and again, like today -- Friday.

Luckily, I have a 'good one', the A/C works great... But I saw 210F on the dash the other day in traffic and started to worry. I've had to refill the coolant twice this season, which is a whole different worry.

Don't even bother, it's like trying to convince a 5 year old that Santa doesn't exist.

It going to be 77degrees here today but it will be "too cold" for my GF because it will be out of her comfort range of 79-82 degrees. lol

In 116/117 weather I drive my Evora and love every minute of it. The AC keeps me chilly, the supple leather keeps me comfy, and my radio keeps me rock'n out.

BulletTime,
Yes, Mesa Arizona is brutal. That is why I live at the 5000 foot mark in far southern Arizona, much much cooler. Even so, I route my trips to avoid stop and go traffic.
