Raining and floods in Texas and totally dry heat out here. Sure looks like climate change to me.

Hottest Summer here that I can ever remember.

@Tink: Must be Trump's fault! :D


@ Rooster,

Naah, the Texas floods and the CA heat wave are Trump's fault.

NY is cool because of all the solar panels and windmills.  :D

Actually, since yesterday, we are having rain and cool temperatures, which are expected to last for about a week or so. But we had at least three heat waves since last June.

Quite a few fruit, crop and/or vegetable harvests started much earlier than usually, like the grape harvest, which is about 3 weeks ahead.

The Indian Summer (or "gossamer") is a North American term for an unusually warm, sunny period after the summer season.


Here in Europe, the term "Indian Summer" has been borrowed from your side. Some might remember a successful song from the seventies, "L'été indien" (The Indian Summer):

Here's an English version:
