The Hottest Temperature Ever Recorded in Each State
Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Monday and I hope you had a beary safe and great weekend. Dab the AIDS Bear has just arrived back home from the Positive Living Conference in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida so stay tuned for new pictures soon.
Speaking of beach, it was a very warm weekend considering we are in the middle of September. But do you know the hottest temperature ever recorded in each state? Today I will blog about this stat. Any time the mercury level jumps into Freddie-esque heights, it can seem like it's the hottest day ever. But it's not, because the hottest day ever happened in 1936... at least if you live in Kansas, Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania.
To give ourselves a nice pat on the back for surviving another summer, we consulted the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to find out the real hottest day on record in each state in the country (apologies to DC -- they didn't have that data, because IT'S NOT A STATE). Scroll down to find your state, and be thankful that it's not the summer of '36.
