Summing Up Summer
We have now closed the books on a somewhat cool summer. After crunching all of the numbers, we ended up having about 51% of the days with above normal highs (46% were below normal, and 3% were exactly normal).
Some of these numbers are a little misleading -- a lot of the days with "above" normal highs were just a few degrees above normal. Some of the below normal days were well below normal.
Also -- July is statistically the hottest part of the summer. We actually had the 23 days in July with below normal highs, and never hit 90° during the month.
For the summer season, we used about 83% of our normal air conditioning.
