"On this day (July 24th) in 1936, the Dust Bowl heat wave was so intense that Kansas and Nebraska experienced their all-time hottest temperatures, unbroken to this day. In Alton, Kansas, the temperature was 121 degrees, and in Minden, Nebraska, it was 118." - The writers Almanac.

It's supposed to get to 101F here today.

Growing up in Topeka, KS in the late 1940's I remember an afternoon that got to 114F at the house. We had an outdoor thermometer outside the dining room window.
