How hot is it where you live?


Just finished moving my daughter from her 3rd floor apartment to a different one on the first floor, thank God. Her AC was broken in the old apartment, temps were 95+ degrees with HI over 100. There was nowhere to get cool other than sitting in cars. The apartment was hotter than the outside, the truck was as well.

After about 4 hours of moving washer, dryer, couch, recliners, 60" proj. tv, stand, mattresses, I was dizzy just standing up and walking. I was heat soaked and had to find AC to cool down. Carrying each of those items down 2 flights of stairs was exhausting. My son and I did the work. He and my daughter had to finish with the little things like dishes, microwaves, lamps, etc.

I sat in a car for about 1.5 hours with cold air and finally was able to get going again. Glad that is over!

I think I haven't had to use A/C maybe 2 days since June. It's so humid you break a sweat just going out to the mailbox.

It is freaking hot here in the south!

Muggy as hell lately add that with 90+. My wife and I were coming home from seeing Horrible Bosses this morning and at 1am it was over 80 degrees and humid.

+30ish on and off most of the summer so far.

I like the heat, but this is WAY too hot to do anything. Walking outside is like hitting a wall, and then immediately start sweating. No fun. Can't actually do anything outside.

I don't know how people who get +40's manage to handle that.

That's the perfect weather. Warm, but not too hot, either.

It's so hot here today that our local PD is going to make their monthly budget writing folks tickets for leaving dogs in their cars - even with the AC running. MD law prohibits animals being left unattended in vehicles. I found out from my vet who got ticketed this morning

Finally, very comfortable now - About 75F and 40% humidity in MN (out on the edge of the metro heat island). A welcome after a long , cool spring and the just recently after a few days of 100F with very high humidity. The vegetation is exploding.

We are in the "theater of seasons" that is affected for good and bad by the cool, dry Canadian air from the NW, the hot and dry air from the SW and the humid, problem causing heat and humidity from the South. - I guess that is why every major TV station has many meterologists to scare/force us to watch TV for the forcast for the next few hours. Only about 75 miles can make a big difference in the weather in this area. Unfortunately, the 4 major networks have to predict for an area in a 200 mile radius because of the local agreements.
