This story would have interested me even if I hadn’t experienced the past summer. You see, since I have been in Arkansas 18 or so years, I can’t recall a summer as mild as this one. We have had very few days over 100 degrees. Last year I think we had at least 5 times more than this year. Summer isn’t over. Maybe we’ll have a hot September to “make up” for the lower average temperatures.
