Nashville is in the midst of a heat wave like never before. Literally! On June 28 we had a high of 105 degrees that displaced the previous record for that day that dated back to 1925. On June 29 we had a high of 109 that was an all-time record high for Nashville. It is supposed to continue through the weekend with 106 forecast for Saturday and 104 for Sunday before it starts to abate somewhat. There’s not going to be a lot of outdoor activities for me this weekend, you can count on that!
We never had much of a winter in late 2011 and early 2012. It got cool but never got cold for this region. I wondered all season whether we were going to pay the price during the summer and it appears that I’ve gotten my answer now!
