Hot Enough

Is it hot enough for you? Believe it or not, I have had several people tell me they like this hot and humid weather. Personally, I'll pass. Put it back in the middle to upper 80's and drop the dew points to the 50's and I'd be much happier.

June turned out to be a hot month for the entire KFVS viewing area. Take a look at some of the statistics:
