Quad Cities Anniversary Coming Up



This Sunday marks the 77th anniversary of the HOTTEST DAY EVER IN THE QUAD CITIES!  On July 14, 1936 the Quad Cities, and most of the country, baked under an unprecedented and since unmatched dome of heat!  The temperature in the Quad Cities soared to 111°!  This wasn't a one-day affair either...the summer of 1936 is the worst on record for a lot of cities throughout the Midwest.  This record is one of more than a dozen from July, 1936 that still stands! 

To this day these are current record highs set during the month...

I guess it could have been worst last summer when we soared up into the 100s 5 times during the month of July!
