We've still got a lot of summer left yet and February is usually the hottest month. So that's something to look forward to.
We've now had a thunderstorm and there are quite a few fires in the area from lightning strikes.
Your post reminded me of the time in the 1950's when I was in the Air Force being shipped to Morocco, and we had a layover in South Carolina. The humidity was so high, we were drenching wet by walking just a few blocks from our hotel. We went to the YMCA to take showers, but the same thing happened on our way back to the hotel. I believe that's the highest humidy I have ever experienced in my life. I would never consider living in that kind of climate. It makes me wonder why so many do.

It works here, but only because we have a relatively low humidity.
Yes - humidity has been very high here! Our planned Australia Day picnic was moved to someone's house with aircon.
I'm so sick of living feeling like a sticky wet rag!
How Hot Is It in Boston? The Hottest July Ever Recorded
As the temperature in the city on this last day of the month climbs once again into the 90s
and has prompted yet another heat advisory, meteorologists are predicting this will be
Boston’s hottest July on record.
The National Weather Service won’t make the final call until after midnight, but as of this
morning the average temperature for the month in Boston has been 78.5 degrees, besting
the previous record of 78 degrees set back in 1983. That’s the hottest in nearly 150 years,
as records date back to 1872.
“We are on tap for the warmest July,” says Alan Dunham, meteorologist for the NWS in
Norton, adding, “It confirms what everybody thinks: ‘God it’s hot out there.’ Yeah, it is.”
Including Wednesday, if temps get that high, we will have had 12 90-degree days in Boston
this month. Dunham points out that the city did not see any 90-degree days in May or June,
while we typically see one or two during those months.
We won’t be the only city to break records. Hartford, which so far has had an average
temperature of 78.2 degrees, will likely surpass the previous high of 77.9. But while it’s
also been hot in Providence, Dunham says that city’s record will probably not be broken,
as it’s currently only the fifth hottest July on record.
