After having a very wet winter and spring and most of June and July in the Vancouver area - we are finally enjoying continued heat and sun. Yesterday I overheard someone ahead of me leaving a store and being hit by the parking lot heat, say it was 'California Hot'. For most people around here, we're enjoying this glorious weather because we are pretty sure that within a week or so, we'll be back to rain from October until May.
For the poor people in Texas, they only wish for such an event. Read this. It is absolutely unbelievable what they are going through.
