PREDICTION #8 This summer will be one of the hottest ever in the midwest.
This is a legitimate prediction because I didn't say that it was going to be hot. I said that it was going to be one for the hottest EVER!
The USA sweated this year through its hottest summer in 70 years, with temperatures not seen since the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, according to a government report.
From June 1 to Aug. 31, as summer is defined by the National Climatic Data Center, the continental USA had an average temperature of 74.5 degrees, based on readings from hundreds of weather stations nationwide. It was the second-hottest summer temperature the government has recorded since it started keeping track in 1895. The only one warmer — by about two-tenths of a degree — was in 1936.
Now, if I could just predict those Powerball numbers . . .
