Our summer here in the mountains hasn't been as bad as it has been for the folks in the southwest. We've only broken one heat record in Asheville, I think just 90 degrees one day last week.
This weekend had been very pleasant, with evening cool-offs and occasional showers. That's proper summer weather here.

It will still be this hot for another 3 months easily. Summer is just beginning in many ways.
Schools let out a week ago, or maybe at the beginning of the month. There are pools and lakes and streams with squealing children enjoying the splashing fun.
