    According to this article June had the highest temperatures since records began in 1880. :eek:

    Up here in my neck of the woods in Vermont it has been ubsurdly hot and humid all summer long. I think we have hit 90+ the most times ever in a summer and it isn't even close to being done yet. My mountain man ass isn't built for this kind of heat.

    Was 98 in Burlington, VT yesterday with a heat index of 104. Only a handful of times in history has it been that hot this far north. At around 10PM it was still 88 and within 15 min the temperature dropped from 88 to 69. We got hammered by a severe thunderstorm bow echo with 1 inch hail and 85mph winds and a hell of a lot of lightning. Now the clean up begins. My backyard is a damn mess broken trees are everywhere....

    Was that fire determined to be human caused or natural because of the heat or lightning?

    The news hasn't specified if the fire is arson related or caused by natural forces.

    I'm going to take a guess and say it was caused by a bit of both. Doesn't take much to unintentionally start a fire in the conditions they have been having lately.

    Yeah its easy in dry conditions to miss a small bit of a smoldering fire whilst camping and leave it for it only to spread. Whenever I camp in the rough, with tents and using fire I dig a shallow hole for the fire and bury it when I leave.

    Hot and humid again today. It feels like we're going to get more storms later in the day.

    You can have ours. Hot and humid for a few days, severe thunderstorms, one cool day, back to hot and humid. Rinse and repeat.

    We caught a break today and it's overcast in the low 90's. There's a lot a residual smoke in the air from the Sand Fire.
