Isn't it funny how "good" weather doesn't get nearly as much press as weather that is a little above normal? I'm talking about our substantially below normal temps here in the Columbus area this month. Yesterday broke a streak I had going here at my house of 5 consecutive days below 80°. It just barely hit 80.1° late yesterday afternoon for a very brief time. These temps are about 15° below average for the most part. But if we hit 90 this summer it's been...

The first fourteen days of July have been wetter than all but two months of the entire year. So far here in Canal Winchester I've recorded 4.06" of rain, counting this morning's absolute downpour.

Instead we are just looking at plain old hot and humid conditions going in to the afternoon. I think it'll be close to see if we have our hottest day ...

Believe it or not we haven't had any sort of Severe Thunderstorm Warning in Franklin County in over 11 days. Seems so unlikely since just about every day for the past couple weeks has had unsettled weather and at least the threat for storms. It's been humid and the atmosphere has felt ripe for a storm to cut loose for quite a while now. In fact, 15 of the past 16 days have been at least in the 80's, with a couple of those in the 90's.
It's been so humid ...
