I can't believe it. It is actually cold here. I skipped outdoor water aerobics as I could not get in the pool when it was 57 degrees. I am not complaining. We are having one of the best summers I can remember--despite global warming.

Bizarre. It's 105F, heavily overcast and raining hot water. Supposedly a combo of southern storms coming north and the normal summer heat of the Nor Cal interior. Records were broken (or set) today. I'm getting the feeling that this thread is a treatise on Global Warming... :D

Record breaking heat, literally. Records are being set today and it will be worse tomorrow. It is 112F where I work, and tomorrow is expected to 115F. As you can see from my previous posts, records have been getting broken all summer here. This isn't just heat. The weather dude used the word "oppressive".

It's sunny, but breezy right now. It's starting to get cooler out as we get closer to September.

It is cold here again today. I have the windows open so I have my winter pyjamas on.

Like Andrew, I'm in the S.F. Bay area. Yesterday was the hottest day ever recorded in S.F. Today will be as bad, with lousy air quality to boot. These are my days off, and I like to practice. Since I don't have air conditioning, it's hot in my downstairs apt.--enough to get my hands sweating when I play. This is murder on my strings since my sweat is acidic (think, Alien). New strings too. Ooof.

The most powerful hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean is making landfall in my front yard this weekend. Other than that, the weather is fabulous.

The tropical storm »Ophelia« is just passing Azores' eastern archipelago (São Miguel & Santa Maria). After hours of heavy rain it was a stormy night, but electricity and internet/telephone are still working :D.
Main problem: the second floor of our house is under construction - the roof was lifted up by approx. 6 feet to give more space for a holiday flat. The roof was not entirely covered before friday afternoon (about 10 m² have been missing until then, but the construction company found some stained (used?) tiles somewhere to close the gap), but there are no windows upstairs, just heavy plastic foil and boards. Temperature is fine (19° C).

That's a very inspirational view! I could write another guitar concerto sitting there.

It's bizarre in South London. The forecast says 18mph winds with 33 mph gusts, less than 5% chance of rain. A while ago there was a certain thickness of cloud over the sun so that the world looked orange/yellow. I was due to go out for some cardio-vascular exercise about now, but I look out of the window and the whole world is a deep orange/tobacco colour!

Here in northern CA, the weather has been abnormally cold. There is so much smoke from the fires that the sun is being blocked out leading to cool weather. It was 63F yesterday, when normally for this time of year it should be mid 70s. So about 10F cooler than normal. WIth the clearing of the smoke, the temps are warmer today (mid 70s).
