I shouldn't complain because our summers are just too short, but this humidity is almost unbearable. My husband, who must be nuts, went golfing in this heat. Would like to see the temperatures stay up like they have been but sure wish the humidity would break. At least I live in a rural area surrounded by woods. Can't imagine what it must be like in some of the larger cities with all that concrete. Hope everyone stays cool and gets through this.

    It's really unpleasant in Columbus, OH. There is a high of 94 today w/ a heat index of 102. Muggy w/ no breeze.

    It rained yesterday evening, so I'm worried about the humidity today. We can average 116, but that's usually with a dry heat, so it's somewhat bearable.

    Are you new to Pennsylvania? It's always been hellishly-hot-and-humid here in the summers. The entire east coast actually.

    I read this morning that all 50 states are above 90F today :icescream:
    I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

    I actually love this weather since I have an indoor job where I wear a granny cardigan all day and I like going to the pool when it's superhot(at least 90). But of course it gets hot when I don't have any free time after work or when I'll be out of town this weekend. :sad3: Went to the pool sunday and was shivering around 7pm.

    Lived here all 62 years of my life!!!

    I know sometimes it can be very humid. Just seems extremely humid this year.

    I can remember summers with the temps in the high 80's and no humidity. Those are wonderful!!

    I know everyone is suffering in the heat right now, but I just have to say how much I love where I live:

    87°
    84° heat index
    30% humidity

    it was this hot for a short time last July and i recall it being like this the first summer i lived here in 2006.

    before that, last time i remember such a hot summer was 1995; Heather and Ian got married on the worst day of July!

    It does seem extra hot and humid for longer periods of time than usual. It always feels like it's building up to a good storm or some tornado weather, which I can live without. It's even too hot for me to do much outside besides go to the beach, walk a bit, and sit on the porch.
    The Jeep is black and bakes in the sun all day and has no AC, so I don't drive much when it's like this.

    Every summer seems hot and miserable to me. I hate summer. Hate being sweaty. Hate. It.
  • yossarianyossarian Posts: 967Registered Users
    Ironically, here in Florida our temps are below normal and we've had relentless rain for the past 4 weeks. Not curl-friendly weather! I almost miss the blazing July sun.

    Stay cool, everyone!

    I don't mind it that much. I have AC at home, plus my office jacks up the air, so I haven't spent much time outdoors this week. I would rather be hot than cold, personally. In the winter, I often never get warm enough, no matter how many layers I have on.

    I am the same way. I lived in St. Louis for a while, and I managed to get first bite on my hands two years in A row with two pairs of gloves on. I am definitely one of those people who do better when it is at least 80 outside.

    I normally kind of love summer here because I can live in my Old Navy flip flops - but not this year! Stupid broken foot means I have to wear this nasty hot immobilization boot all the time - it's so dang hot. Only summer I have been more uncomfortable was 1996 when I was pregnant. :cry:

    I was pregnant here in the Summer in 1973 & 1974. I gave birth rocking a great tan.

    Oh man, in 1996 we had a lot of big monsoons and lost electricity for long periods of time (once 24 hours). Couldn't even leave my house to go to my parents because all the traffic lights were out also. I was calling up SRP, begging them to get my power (AC!) back on, like the crazy pregnant girl I was. My hub would laugh, knowing they were probably thinking "it's that crazy pregnant woman again!"

    Same here. Yesterday I went to get coffee a few blocks away during work. It was around 90 and humid, felt great. I love sweating and heat. Much better than being cold and dry all day. Although by the time I got back my back was wet, stepping outside and feeling that warm blanket wrap around my back and arms...oh soo good.

    This was before it got so hot. Jim is still hiking, but leaves the house around 6AM. I load him up with water and a kiss goodbye in case I don't see him again. If he isn't hiking, he's running. He thinks sweating is good for you. I prefer my sweating to be done in a pool. :glasses8:

    That's me, but I stay perpetually confused. I will go outside to walk around and get some fresh air, forget I have the light sweater on, and start sweltering.

    My area of NC is around 85 today, which is a little cooler. We have been in the 90's and very humid.

    At noon I was eating outside, having a footlong with chili sauce and jalapenos and steaming hot fries. It was 92 but we were in the shade and there was a wee breeze. It was great.
    But on the way back to work I got stuck in construction. In the blazing sun. In a black Jeep. With no AC. I have to say it wasn't as great.
    Still prefer it to being cold tho.
