Actually, I am expecting temperatures to be in triple digits.
(Hope I'm wrong.)

I grew up in St. Louis where you wanted the temperature to climb so it would burn off the humidity.
Now I live in Cleveland where people wig-out about the thermometer breaking 90. :D

Unfortunately in VA the heat doesn't burn off the humidity. The two team up to make life really miserable. :twisted:

For the 2013 Jambo the weather statistics show July averages about 5 degrees coooler (both high and low) with record highs more like 10 degrees cooler. My experiences seem to lead me to think more like 10 degrees cooler for the new WV site.
