We were in Tucson last week and saw 114. Now, we're back home in the mountains and it's 74 with a nice breeze. A/C hasn't run for more than 15 minutes in the last month.
Sister in Chicago area says their high last week was 66! Weird weather patterns this year.
The first summer (1960) I was stationed in Tucson, it was 128 on the flight line. Of course, that was acres of concrete covered with shiny aluminum skinned airplanes.
I grew up on a farm in IL . We had a patch of pop corn that we harvested in August. Had a couple mules pulling a wagon that we loaded the ears on to. It got soooo hot that the pop corn began to pop. The mules thought it was snow and froze to death.
