Don't think you will get many to agree with your assessment unless they just want to make things up. Your comparisons are actually getting comical and your temperature scale is off.
Here is a synopsis of what July weather was like in Iowa:
"The warmth continued through the summer and the fall. Despite the lack of extreme heat (highest temperature for the year was 98° at Ankeny on July 14) Iowa recorded its hottest summer since 1995. Persistent rainfall brought high humidity and allowed official heat indices to reach or exceed 110° on July 14 and 23 and August 3, 8 and 9. Ames reported the highest heat index with 115° on July 14."
"2010 was a wet year for most of Iowa. The statewide average precipitation was second only to 1993 among 138 years of records. Every month except October saw precipitation exceed the median but the wettest period was from June through September."
