    I think this summer ranks right up there but the hottest summer has to be last year or 1988. I wont forget that one, every day it was 90 from June to August. The coldest winter I remember has to be 93-94 I believe. It was like -35 one day. What would you people from Wis say it is for you?

    I remember back around 1984 or 85, it was 27 below zero. Surprisingly my car started. So we went around jumping other people's cars so they could get going. You couldn't stay out for more then a few minutes, for fear of frostbite.
    Then, back in i think 1981 or 82, i was working for the Milwaukee Sentinel, and i had to work Christmas. It was 60 degrees out! Of course, a within a few days it was back to "normal" and bitter cold.

    Summer of 1988 living in Chicago. Nothing like an entire summer in excess of 90 degrees every day...and all that blacktop, concrete, steel and glass to make it even worse.

    Winter of 1979 in N. Wisconsin. First year living there and we had like a 2.5 week stretch where it never rose above -40 or so with the windchill.

    So far this is the hottest summer here in the Missoula area since records have been kept. Since June 21st. we have had 36 days above 94 degrees and 11 days above 100. Put in the 5 days in May we had above 90 and it has been warm. BTW, its 95 right now, so add another day to the total.

    Coldest winter............I don't remember, but anytime it gets below -35 it frigging cold. The past few winters have been mild...not many days below 10 below zero and an average amount of snow. In '95-96' we had a terrible winter. On Feb. 1st the snow depth at our house was 71 inches and I remember the whole darn month of January was below zero. We had a total of 165 inches of snow that winter. 25 miles from us,up at Lolo Pass, on that date there was 15 feet of snow.

    The winter of 95-96 was a bad one here too. I remember there was still ice on Lake Michigan in mid may after that winter on the beach in Ludington.

    To me living in WI for 36 years, the winters were always cold, now that I am living in CA I get cold when the temp is 60...but been told its blood thinning from the two different climates. This summer in Southern CA its been the warmest with temps in the triple digits..

    I still miss WI, great people, great country roads and family...

    It seemes to of been a hot summer right across the country. We also had the dryest June and July on record. Here in Manitoba every winter is cold and I love it. I love winter games. My first Pcacker game was a Dec evening game which was actually not bad. This year I took the evening games against Vikings in Dec. A little flask will warm you right up
