July- It's a Hot One

From http://smnewsnet.com/

July is always a hot mutha.  Our average summer temps are usually somewhere in the mid to low 70's, but in July that average shoots up to the mid to high 80's (click here.)

I know all this from some very hands on experience.  Back in 1980 after I had purchased my Piney Point house in 79, I decided to tear off the roof and do some major renovations.  The week I picked to undertake this effort was from the 14th of  July thru the 21st.  Here is something I saved from the paper discussing the record breaking heat  during that time. 
On the two days that the temps set 100+ records we were on the roof ripping and tearing it off.  It was a hot one.
