I LOVE summer.. I'm always cold though.. and I HATE to be cold. Even during the hottest days of summer, if we're going to a movie, or a resteraunt, or wherever, I always bring a sweater or jacket with me. Even if I just end up carrying it the whole time (doesn't happen often) I usually am freezing within 10 min. It's been in the high 80 to low 90's here, but man, the mornings have been getting cold. I've never looked to see what the temp's been, but I go to work at 5:30 am, and i've been needing a sweater. So no.. lol.. i'm not fed up with summer, i'm dredding winter!! *BUT* I absolutely love, love, LOVE Christmas time! So I really don't start hating winter until January....

I understand quicksilver... I too am not fond of the high heat and humidity... and that is pretty much all we have had since May except for a week of reprieve.

I'm sick of it too. It's 83 degrees but the darn humidity is so high it feels more like 95 degrees. Then the darn mosquitos are driving us crazy. Ick! I'm looking forward to cooler weather.

I am jonesing for Fall to get here. We're getting the Fay effect yesterday and today. The roads were a mess. You would have thought an actual hurricane came through the way the roads looked.

It will be interesting to see what Gustav does. All I know, I'm with everyone who's tired of summer ~ bring on Fall and fast!!

Another good one today. heat index 104, humidity 87%.
Pouring buckets right now, so it will cool off to what, maybe 100, humidity 100%?
I need a break!
