Some like it hot, but it is not me....

"According to State Climatologist David Robinson of Rutgers University,
New Jersey is experiencing its warmest summer (June-August) on record
since weather data has been kept starting in 1895. This followed the
warmest spring on record. Every month since March has ranked in the top
10 of all time for heat, with August ranked 10th, July ranked 2nd and
June as the first hottest month in the past 105 years. At the same time,
below average rainfall has accompanied the heat. The preliminary average
for summer precipitation stands at 8.35 inches statewide, making it the
10th driest summer of all time and the driest summer since 1966."
Summary: Dried and brown.
