    I was lucky, spent 6 days in Orlando in early May and it drizzled once other than that no rain at all

    Granted I don't know Orlando weather so maybe that's normal

    We've actually had a very mild summer by Vegas standards... didn't reach triple digits until nearly the end of June and only a few days over temps over 113 although I do think we broke the record for hottest temp ever in Vegas at 118. Fortunately like most years that nonsense only lasts a few days but most nights seem the last week or so have been really comfortable

    It’s crazy, water temps around s Fla are reaching hot tub levels. The coral is in trouble. I guess, due to the shift from La Niña to El Niño . Our waters here are looking like the tropics this summer . Hopefully within a month or so we start to see those nights drop to the 60s , the first indication fall is on the way.

    Normally I'd say that doesnt matter that much as the water temps 1000 miles offshore and wind patterns have a much bigger effect....... BUT unfortunately the past few years, the trend has been moderate systems taking long to develop (avoiding the poleward pull to the north) skirt into Carib/Gulf... and BOOM.

    SUcks because once they get there, someone is fuct....

    Speaking of heat, another 100 degree day today, and today the kids here go back to school (don't understand the logic to start in early august)

    It’s awful. I never would have thought the lush tropical isle of Maui would have this kind of problem, but all of the usual weather rules don’t seem to hold any more.

    Lahaina is a beautiful little town, and apparently it has been devastated by this. The famous old banyan tree in the center of the Old Town was apparently heavily damaged by the fire.

    I am shocked and saddened by these fires in Hawaii. The videos and photos look like the cities were shelled in a war or something. It really surprises me because I always thought Hawaii was very wet, like rainforests, how does it get dry enough for that? I guess I dont know the region well

    you're half correct.... the windward sides of the islands are very much like that. The Leeward (west sides) are quite arid on many of them as the mountain ranges block the tradewind blown rainclouds corraling much of the rain to the east sides of the mountains (well volcanoes)
