Default HOW UGLY is the weather in D.C. right now?

I just got THIS off the Weather channel that I subscribe to Ma eylan, is it true? Here in far west texas, we have a rare weather situation, with a huge low pressure system and back door cold front that has kept us under cloudy skies with drizzle or light rain for the last four days. Our temperatures have rainged between mid seventies to low eighties, defenitely NOT typical weather for us here. Is what I pasted below TRUE for you guys at the meetup??

On Thursday, every state except for Alaska soared to 90 degrees or higher.

The East, enduring its fourth heat wave of the summer, felt temperatures well into the 90s with RealFeelŪ temperatures of 105 to 110 degrees in Washington, D.C., and New York City.

Major cities have braced for typical urban heat dilemmas such as power outages and mass transit delays.

During heat waves, power loss is common as energy usage skyrockets with cranked up air conditioners, constantly running ceiling and oscillating fans and appliances like refrigerators and freezers working harder to stay cool.

Downtown urban areas often suffer the worst as they lack permeable surfaces such as open land and vegetation and are instead plagued by concrete and infrastructure. This creates a phenomenon called an urban heat island effect.

The annual mean air temperature of a city with one million people or more can be anywhere from 1.8 degrees to 5.4 degrees F warmer than its surroundings, the EPA reports.

It's been mid 90's here for a couple of days (here in NYC). Supposedly, it will be cooling off back into the high 80's next week.
