5. Pretty sure you'd be fine as long as that one month is not Mid June - Mid October

It's pretty damn nice here the rest of the time.

Now ... we get no cool 'fall effects', and spring is kinda unexciting too ... but objectively the weather is quite nice.

6. Pretty much

Hard to keep up with garden watering during this stretch of really hot and dry weather. Front yard is brown - don't care so I don't water it. Backyard still kind of green - more shade. Between the watering and the AC, a couple of my utility bills are going to be NASTY. But I am grateful for the AC, the water, and the ability to pay for them. I have to be frugal in other areas but that's OK. I find peace and joy in my garden, my meals abound with fresh produce, and because there is enough for freezing and canning, I will be enjoying "my local" produce this winter. Go Bucks!

8. I hear ya.

Weíre going to have some nasty utility bills here, too. Mr. O does a great job keeping the garden watered so we have fresh, organic, veggies. My flowers, I think, are almost dead. They kind of just disintegrated from the heat ... we have a small-ish house on 3 acres so itís our little refuge.

9. It was 92 today and now at 8pm it is down to

89. We have a breeze now and it is comfortable on the porch a couple hours ago it was unberable. Supposed to be severe thunderstorms moving through in a hour or so.
The good thing the tomatoes are ripening nothing like an Ohio homegrown tomato.

15. Sure did.

I was a student in an apartment at Kent State back then. Fun times! The wind was so strong it blew out the picture window in the apartment across the courtyard. Buildings were so flimsy, the wind blew a fine coating of snow INSIDE my bedroom through the cracks in between the window and the wall. Snow up to the top of highway overpasses ... truckers up on the tops of their rigs, stranded.... oh gosh donít get me started.
