Recalling hot temps here in September

“Regarding your Friday column and how hot it got in early September 1988,” wrote Terry Hontz. “While I don't recall the heat of September 1988, I have a vivid memory of another Septemeber heat wave.

“I arrived at Fairchild AFB on September 27, 1967, my first assignment as a newly minted airman fresh out of boot camp..

“I had just left two months of heat in San Antonio, Texas, and I was looking forward to September temperatures like I had grown up with in my native Pennsylvania.”

That's not what he encountered. On the 27th, it got up 87. And then the next day, the temperature got up to 89.

“I have long since made Spokane my home, but I recall those first two days like yesterday.”
