It's official

August was really hot in Chattanooga (the heat peaked on the 23rd).
With temperatures 100 degrees or higher on nine days, last month was the warmest August ever recorded here.

"The average high was 98 degrees," said Mary Black, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Morristown, Tenn. "That is about 11 degrees above normal."

All but one day in August recorded daytime highs of 90 degrees or greater...

I like to blame my sister and brother-in-law, who made their move from Signal Mountain to Hixson in increments every weekend. Since they would not pin down a date, the good Lord decided to make the whole month ridiculously hot.

But really, isn't it always the sister's fault? ;-)
