There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

No scorchio, and by the biggest margin for a month and a day. Yet the average temperature for the day was still +2° because it didn't go below 80° overnight.

Today was *that* day in 2011. There were more than 15 days of scorchio still to come.

Scorchio number 36. We were at number 50 this time last year.

Last night was a particularly warm one. I woke up at 3.30am drenched in sweat, and the thermostat was reading 84° when I got up an hour and a half later.

Scorchio number 38. Slightly more comfortable overnight. Only 82 on the thermostat at 5.30am. No shortage of scorchios in the forecast though. This summer has decided to make up for all the time it lost in June and the first half of July smiley - cross

Scorchio number 39. Even though the coming week's forecast looks pretty grim, apparently the humidity is going to be lower than it has been for... what seems like forever, and the temperature at the airport has dropped below 70 for the first time since July 27th. The thermostat in here was reading 81° at 7.00am.

There could be hope that summer is almost over smiley - brave

Scorchio number 43, and yes, there was a lot of sweat because we broke the daily maximum record yesterday. That hasn't happened too many times this summer. Might equal it today.

And that's exactly what we did. Scorchio number 44. Could today (or maybe yesterday) be the final scorchio of the year? Or perhaps the last for a while? The latest one we've ever had is in October, although next week looks nicer than it has for a while, especially Saturday, it can still come back.

Scorchio number 45. Broke the record again. On a hopeful (for the end of this summer that won't let go smiley - cross) note, it was only (only!) 81° in here this morning. Better than the 83 and 84 it's been for so long.

Scorchio number 47, despite yesterday's forecast of of 95 smiley - rolleyes But... rain! And some comfort. The temperature dropped from 97 to 78 and didn't go back above 81 after that. But look at the weekend smiley - facepalm The average daily maximum is going to drop into the upper 80s and we'll still be in the upper 90s at this rate.

And by the way, the thermostat was reading only 80° at 8.30am. I don't know if went below that earlier because I got up later than usual (smiley - hangover), but I suspect not because it's gone up to 81 at 9am.

Scorchio number 48, despite yesterday's forecast of of 96 smiley - rolleyes But... rain! Again, and quite a lot of it here, yet only a trace at Camp Mabry. And now look at the forecast for the coming week smiley - facepalm We might beat last year's scorchio count of... whatever it was. Around 50-ish I think.

Scorchio number 49.

I think I've worked out what's going on with this summer. Since it started so late (we didn't get our first scorchio until well into July), it's making up for lost time. The average temperatures are almost below 90 and below 70 but we're still above them, and by almost 10° in the case of the maximum.
