The Crazy Weather In The North/East

Here in the North/East we have had some crazy weather in the Winter, with record snow fall over 46", at one time we had four storms come threw four days between each other. Now it is Summer time and the weather has flipped.
I was on my way home from work, as I past though Lees burg VA the temperature hit the 101 degrees mark as you can see by the pic, once I entered Lucketts VA the temperature had drop to 95 degrees, then as I entered Fredrick MD the temperature hit the 101 degree mark again. I am not sure what the official temperature was but as hot and humid as it was I don't think It matters.
I have also been paying attention to peoples driving habits during this heat weave and it seems like they are more occupied with other things other then driving. Although they have there a/c on in there cars I see more people changing lanes with out looking and waiting to the last minute to apply there breaks. I don't know if It is the heat, there attitudes or maybe a chemical reaction from the materials inside of there cars due to the extreme heat.
I know is kind of driving go's on all the time but It is just more noticeable.
Everyone, just be careful.........

You missed PA / NJ / NY as well. Everyday on my way to work it's an adventure. Some of these drivers push it to the limit no matter the weather or volume of traffic. Sooner or later they'll misjudge by a little and I hope they're the only one involved in the accident but that's rarely the case.
