We're all experiencing an unusually warm summer on the eastern side of the Atlantic.

Londoners experienced the hottest day in the city's history on Wednesday as the temperature hit 35.9C (96.6F.)

And perhaps more worryingly.....

The heat wave has forced authorities in France, where temperatures jumped to about 40C (104F) Monday, to spray cold water on the walls of the country's main nuclear reactors.

Temperatures at the nuclear plant rose to two degrees short of the point requiring an emergency shutdown.

Europe swelters under heat wave

So how is your summer going? [Linked Image]

That's pretty scary about France, a country that gets 70% of their electricity from nuclear generating plants!

Hello Paul, be carefull and drink plenty of fluids. I hope it's cooling down at night since A/C is not the norm in your residences.

Well, here in NJ it's been HUMID, 80-90 degrees, and it's rained for about ten days, and is supposed to stay the same 'till next week.

Not a steady rain, but some of the wildest thunderstorms we've had in a while. One city got 4" of rain in about 1-1/2 hrs.
Flash floods, etc.

Other than that, a typical NJ summer...seems like we go from winter to summer without a spring. THe people at the "shore" have been complaining about the weather all season. (May, June & part of July) And so far, August looks like a bummer for them.

My philosophy; I wake up in the morning, my eyes open, I'm alive!! It's a good day.

John: EXCELLENT philosophy.

I'm also in NJ. Just last summer, there was a restriction on water usage. Now, we're getting these daily cloud-dumps. We started off with almost a solid month of rain after all of that snow this past winter. My children have yet to experience springtime weather, but boy did they enjoy that snow!

It seems like the worst may be past in Denver but July was a scorcher. Day after day of 95+. Of course, the only day it officially cleared 100, I was at home building a fence (what did the world do before air nailers?). That snow picture reminded me of one storm here last winter. We didn't get plowed out for 2 days and we live in town.

It seems to be the same way here in recent years, with the weather changing from winter to summer with a very short spring.

The weather people are telling us that the pattern is likely to continue in the following decades, perhaps with England getting summers this warm every couple of years.
