So, it has been an unusually mild spring here, and, today was the first hot day.  You would be hard pressed to find more than a handful of warm days, from March, until yesterday.  And, today, nearly 100 degrees F.  I thought I was going to die.  

You know what I learned?  

Two things:  The NYCT system is, basically, out of service, on the weekends, and, smoke (any kind) is made worse by the heat.  It causes a more intense allergic reaction, more headaches, more nausea, etc.

I live in Denmark, and honestly I don't really like Temperatures over 70 F.

I avoid travelling to hot countries for that reason.

Not that I lik ice cold weather either.

My ideal weather temp is from 50 F to 70 F

It's been a long cool rainy spring here in Maine, but yesterday it went up into the mid 90s. Quite a change from what we'd been having with no time to acclimate. Near 90 today and tomorrow. Then we get a break from the heat.

Me too.  Interesting though: I was raised in Southern Africa and hate high heat and high humidity.  On the other hand, my wife was raised in southwest England and she loves heat and humidity.  When we lived in Houston she was always sitting by the pool in the summer whilst I was firmly ensconced in our air conditioned family room

Today it's in the low to mid 70s, low humidity, and a nice breeze. Just a perfect day.

I was in Granada, Spain two weeks ago and it got to 100*F, which was way above average for that time of year.  I boiled my brains, but SWMBO loved it.

You guys in dry areas don't impress me with 100+ degrees temperatures!  Biggrin

90+ degrees with 90%+ humidity, now we're talking oppressive.  That's Miami in the summer!

I was once invited to Miami for a week by the company I worked for.

I turned down the offer and let another guy do the travel instead of me.

This is how much I hate high heat and humidity.

It gets warm in Colorado - but is quite dry. Last weekend it was in the mid 90's, so I headed up the rocky mountains until I found snow Smile

San Juan, Puerto Rico:  18 degrees north.  Right smack in the middle of the Trade Winds.  Those come from Africa traveling west along the equator, for maybe 10,000 miles.  Now, that is humid.  Miami is a walk in the park.  For warm blooded animals like us, 50 degrees is thermal underwear, scarf, gloves, hats, three layers of cloth plus a skiing parka.  We go to the beach in the middle of the summer.  It is hot.  Maybe 110f.  A cold beer is all that is needed to balance it all.  Ricardo, Claus, and the rest:  the best for you all.  Happy fathers day!

I almost died, once, in Georgia, from the heat.  Again, a few laters, in Mississippi.  I will always love the Southern US, but, I prefer to stay in Yankee States.

years ago i travelled from San Francisco bay area to clearwater, florida.  stopped in New Orleans I walked out of the airport to stretch. damn I grew up in the midwest and saw some humidity but that was eye opening.  Tampa Bay wasn't much better. Love me some West Coast US.  Oregon is fine for me
