It is HOT!!!!

Tulsa is predicting 111 tomorrow and 112 Wednesday! It's usually a couple of degress warmer here.

I'm glad I got that cover up. At 2pm it was 108.2 here. I checked inside the trailer and it was 98. That was with only the roof vents opened!
I did open up a couple of windows to help with some air movement.

Our high today was 67F and humidity around 20%. Clear blue, lots of sunshine. We just love it here. The dull grey winter months are just a down-payment on a specatcular summer. After three years in Tidewater Virginia, we really appreciate our NW climate.

Of course, 800 scattered. 1800 overcast, half mile visibility, rain and fog from late November until early April can get old. That's what RVs are for!

Sorry, Gary, but it's not easily transportable. Sure do like it here, though. We've had a very cool and wet spring this year. We didn't top 70F until early June and it didn't stick around for long. Local strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are about three or four weekis late. I think we'll be having fried green tomatoes again this year!

You could try using a big fan. I sent some warmer temps up to the N.E. part of the country last winter.

We had a fairly wet spring with some nice temps. Then right after June got here it went straight to the dog days of summer. There has been some random showers around, but we haven't had any rain here since about the start of June. Ground has wide, deep cracks and you can feel the heat coming up. Right now we're hitting 100 by noon.

Like everything else, aint nothin' that time won't heal. Come on October!!!!!

Nothin' wrong with fried green tomatoes.

Hi Gary, We spent the weekend at the OK/TX border casinos and came home to 114 here in Wagoner,OK. It is worse then Natural Falls!! LOL The AC in the MH did well all weekend except for tripping the 30 amp main when the wife turned on the hair dryer.

Also have concerns with the temp in the MH when parked home. Went out to the MH to get something last night at 8o PM and it was 109 in there. Roof vents open. Opened all of the windows but will follow today to see how it does. U have a roof over yours?? Thinking about that direction but not sure how much it would help.

Here in the Buffalo area it is also hot....well, at least by our standards. Gee, it's almost 90 today.

I know, you'll talk to me in January and see how high the drifts are then!

To grhodes50, Do you maybe mean Tidewater, Oregon rather than Virginia?

112 is not hot compared to Arizona. The one great thing about temps this high is that you don't have to heat up the BBQ. It is already preheated.

It's 107 now in OKC and the prediction is for 114 today. We are leaving for the rest of August in the high country next week. Can't wait! I think next year I'll spend July and August there. Just checked - it's 68 degrees there right now.

That info was included in a quote I posted from F and E Damp.

It was 107 by noon in Tulsa and 110.1 here at 3:45pm. Tulsa is expecting to get close to, if not break, their ALL TIME record high of 115 tomorrow.

Hotter than you know what down here in Texas. I am sure there is a TX/OK joke someplace in there..we are and have been under an excessive high heat warning.
