What happened to summer this year? In Kansas, a normal summer includes at least 30 days of 100+ degree F temperatures (and normally more) with maybe two or three thunderstorms that cool us off to 80. We had two days of 100+ temps. We spent most of the summer hovering anywhere between 80-90 and sometimes dropping into the 70s. It rained like crazy. We are currently around 10 inches over our normal rainfall. It sucks because the grass grows quickly with all that water. I would have liked a week or two of really hot weather to kill the grass off, or at least force it to grow much slower.
