56. Last year we had the heat on in mid-July here
in Mass because it was so cold and rainy.

Today it was near 100 down in the big city, although "only" 86 at my house (20 miles away, in the woods, 1300 ft elevation)

Tomorrow supposed to be worse.

This is more like the summers we used to have 20+ years ago.
