Get ready — it is supposed to be HOT this summer — like, record-breaking hot.
Heaven help me. I’m not a fan of summer. I am the kind of person who has a fan going in my room 24/7, and I keep the air conditioner at a cool 67 degrees year round.
That being said, things are NOT looking good for me THIS summer.
According to The Weather Channel, this summer is set to be one of the hottest ever on record.
We started off the year with warmer than average temps — I mean, it hasn’t snowed here AT ALL this year, and that’s not normal — but then half the country went into this weird freeze over Mother’s Day.
Don’t expect the cool weather to last, my friends.
The Northeast and mid-Atlantic can generally expect above-average temperatures from June through August. Above-average temperatures will also extend from Central Texas into the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures will be much above average from eastern Washington and eastern Oregon into Idaho, western Montana, western Wyoming, northern Utah and northeastern Nevada this summer.The Weather Channel
There’s already been a run on toilet paper and hand sanitizer, do I now have to worry about stores running out of ice and fans?
I could get all technical, and tell you how we are coming out of El Niño and going into La Niña conditions — but, I’ll be honest — I have NO idea what the heck I’m talking about when it comes to such things. We’ll leave that kind of talk to the weather experts.
All you need to know is it is going to be hot — much hotter than I’d like it to be. My air conditioner is about to get a WORKOUT this summer.
