100+ (37C "feels like 39C" here in Spain.)....so HOOOOT that I loathe just going to the store for 10 m
Edit: The fact that utilities here are ultra expensive doesn't exactly help either, but there is just no way NOT to run the A/C.

Weather History for Aiken, SC
I've been to Aiken.
Went to High School in Toccoa, Ga.
Like everyone has said, it's been a cool summer here in Memphis. Wouldn't be surprised if it was a record cool summer.

Hmmm...i remember being a child in the 70's and the Summers were SO hot it melted the roads and pavements.
I actually saw someone once fry an egg on the bonnet (hood) of a car to perfection back then too.
It was bloody hot.
These are weather cycles that happen periodically and always have done.
A lot of our weather is due to what the Sun decides to get up to...at first glance, this may sound obvious, but i'm not talking about whether or not it is sunny or cloudy affecting the weather.
Have a read up on solar activity (Solar maximum and Solar minimum cycles) and how they affect our weather here and that elsewhere in the Solar system.
