    He never has them. His summers have always been “lit”.

    I saw a while back British marathon runners COLLAPSED in 24C heat (75 degrees)

    They couldn't handle a REAL American Brotex summer

    Which reminds me I keep forgetting to buy a box of those red,green,orange popsicles I used to eat as a child. They remind me of a pre-9/11 world. SAD!

    My thermostat said 35 earlier today. Thats hot for the UK. I read that France is going to be 45 next week.

    The last 4 years are the top 4 hottest on record globally.

    40C in France today. Tour de France is happening right now ... Today was a flat stage - it was still an oven out there, with these guys going well over 40k an hour - but ... the riders are going back into the mountains (Alps) in 2 d
    ays, with temperatures still on the rise (as you said) These guys always start around noon (because of tv coverage), when the temperatures are highest.

    So this weekend these guys are facing 113F ...

    Today one of the top riders (number 3 in GC) requested an earlier start for the next few days but it's probably not gonna happen. Riders who aren't strong in the mountains have asked for leniency with the time limit. (Riders have to finish x% time after the winner or they have to leave the race.) Shortened stages have also been requested but this is mostly exclusively granted when there's unexpected heavy snowfall during mountain stages (typical for the Giro d'Italia, not so much the TdF), so opposite circumstances to what we have here. ASO (organization behind TdF) is very reluctant to shorten stages at any rates because cities pay hefty amounts to be chosen as start / end places of stages

    the top rider who asked for an earlier start is the same guy who lost his GC leader spot in the Giro d'Italia in 2016 after riding into what can only be described as a monumental wall of snow while cycling downhill. sheesh.

    The midwest heat wave probably scorched Dooch's lawn. He's probably at a DEFCON 1 with the stress level right now.

    No we got a lot of rain and I always use non burning MILORGANITE.

    Plus if you mow cool season grass tall (3-4”) and establish a deep root system your lawn will be more drought and heat tolerant.

    It was 90 plus for 4 days.

    I always thought that was just called summer.
