The jet streams on the other hand have been giving us a very mild summer here in SC.
We have had lots of rain, and while it has caused problems in many areas, it has filled our lakes and ponds back up to pre-drought levels. Enough so
to where water is now higher than it's been before.
Temps have been quite mild for July here, mostly in the mid to high 80's which is unheard of here. Normally we're into the high 90's and over
Many plants and trees that had been dying from lack of rain have come back to full, and new growth here where I live in the woods has exploded. I have
seen and heard more frogs and bugs than the past several years. I've also seen a LOT more deer than we normally have.
Down side is that it's VERY humid (reminds me of when I lived in Thailand, the tropics) every day, and the bugs are out in full force.
This is also when we normally enter our "dry" season and only have the occasional pop-up thunder storm in the late afternoons. Instead, it's been
like the mansoons of the tropics.
I would love for it to keep up, as it's been allowing for much more work outside. Instead of having to shut down after about 1pm when the heat index
makes it too hot to get anything done. But more than likely the weather will shift again soon, and we'll go back to our normal oven bake summer
