Dog Days of Summer - How hot is hot?

Dog Days of Summer - How hot is "hot"...  where you are?

Jason Neumann in Kelowna, British Columbia tweeted:

Canada is exotic to me...  we went to Ontario when I was in middle school. I have crossed the border a couple of times into Windsor, Canada from Detroit... maybe twice in my life.  I guess I went into Canada once at Niagra Falls now that I think about it. British Columbia is very exotic... to me.  It surprised me when Jason responded in ° Fahrenheit to my question of how hot hot was in Kelowna. 

Dublin, Ohio vs. the real Dublin... the one in Ireland

Jason's tweet  was the day after I went to the Dublin Irish Festival...Columbus, OH 43085 thermometer showing 98 degrees July 2011

A singer from Ireland said something about taking some of our warm weather home to Donegal (I think that is the city she said...) the way she said it "Donegal" was pronounced a little different than how we say Donegal in our mid-western accents.   There are neighborhoods in Dublin Ohio named after places in Ireland.  How she said Donegal sounded very different than when we refer to the Donegal Cliffs neighborhood. 

I was pretty hot and sweaty on Sunday in Dublin, Ohio... and I would have relished some cooler weather.  She could have taken our weather back to Donegal on Sunday as far as I was concerned.

I guessed it was over 90° Sunday afternoon in Dublin Ohio, but according to a friend's iPhone it was 86° in Westerville...It must have been that Comfort Index thing.  Heat plus humidity...

The Dog Days of Summer

According to Wikipedia:  "Dog Days" (Latin: diēs caniculārēs) are the hottest, most sultry days of summer. In the northern hemisphere, they usually fall between early July and early September."

Wikipedia goes on "The Old Farmer's Almanac lists the traditional timing of the Dog Days as the 40 days beginning July 3 and ending August 11, coinciding with the ancient heliacal (at sunrise) rising of the Dog Star, Sirius." 

The Dog Days of Summer ends Thursday!

Our Real Living Website gives weather information on the listings.  I guess that is interesting if you are trying to decide between two job offers or are transferred to a new area but I though it was kind of odd.

You can compare houses on various things on our sites including weather. One is weather or climate. 

I would think a Westerville house, a Worthington house , a Dublin house should be pretty similar when it comes to climate (virtually identical.)  Maybe so... the table below is for a Worthington home.

Back in the 'good old days on ActiveRain  ;- )  2006, 2007  I used to pay attention to ActiveRain members the Codgers in Minnesota most mornings...  They usually told us how cold it was in St. Paul.  Or how refreshingly cool it was in the summertime.   I sometimes catch Jack Boardman tweeting St. Paul, MN weather...  This was Boomer Jack this morning on Twitter:

Boomer Jack does °Farenheit and °Celsius.  Talented.

How hot is hot where you are?
