And we're blessed with an abundance of both...for Maine.

Looking like more of the same the next several days.

I think I'll pull a Biden - hide out in the basement where it's nice and cool and work on my models.

I went to Orlando on business in June of 2003 on business, then went to see the Mouse for a few days.

95 degrees, 92% relative humidity.

Sitting under an umbrella in an outdoor bar drinking a beer with sweat pouring off of me.

Thought I was gonna die.

If you gotta be out in it, commit because you know what's coming. That and hope for a breeze. Frown

It’s ridiculous here in SE Tennessee…plus I don’t handle the heat like I did when I was a younger human being (I ain’t reached lizard stage yet!)…cutting short the mowing, hedge trimming and even walking the dog till in the early morning…I’m getting effing old Frown (Forget the St. George Florida vacation till October Frown Frown Frown…it’s just reality)

Hell I thought Maine was cold in Winter and cool in Summer?

Haha - that's one of my hesitations. I don't mind heat. But I hate heat and humidity. And bonus points for mosquitoes or those bugs that just swarm overhead. Don't have to deal w/ that where I am.

I hated summers in new york (a little upstate and rural). Of all the bad things out here, the weather is not one of them.

I have much more trouble getting around and working in the cold than I do in the heat. Pretty sure my age has something to do with that.

This has been a hot summer here in Missouri. Our forecast for the next seven days is triple digits throughout. I'm not crazy about that but I can still get out in the early AM and get a few hours of work done. Our winters are short but can be brutal. I'm pretty much stuck inside.

I grew up with it so it's not a big deal to me but it does get nasty hot and humid here in Southeastern PA from July-September. Today is supposed to be mid-90's and humidity levels in the 80% levels. Yuck. Frown

When I was stationed in Germany I got spoiled by low humidity and temps in the summer (apparently not the case anymore!) and remember coming home on leave one summer in July and I ended up landing at Washington DC trying to get to Philly and I stepped out of the terminal and the heat and humidity almost took my breath away for a second.

I’m in Phoenix this week for work and had to be outside in a gravel pit all day yesterday.

It SUCKED. I think I drank 5 gallons of water and sweat it all right back out.

I had to report to Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS for tech school re-training while in the Air National Guard from July-Nov 2006 and as soon as I got there I felt like this guy, also at Biloxi:

I hate it too. I'm happiest in the Winter time.
Another month and a half and it should start cooling down here.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

Late last year I relocated from Sunny and Hot AZ to Sunny and Humid South Carolina. I had plenty of people warn me about the humidity and have experienced it in the past but it is a whole different beast living in it day in and day out. But I will say that I'll take 50 to 70 percent humidity on a 90 degree day that 10 percent on a 120 degree day. Being retired gives me the option of just not going outside but I find myself going on early morning walks and errands in the AM.

I went from Great Lakes to the shipyard in Portsmouth, VA for crypto school in the Summer of '70. Uniform of the day was Working Whites. I could take a freshly laundered and starched set of whites out of the locker - starched so stiff you had to ram your arm down the legs of the bell bottoms to get them on - and by the time I'd walked a hundred yards from the barracks on my way to school they'd look like I'd been swimming in them.

I tolerate it, unless I actually have to perform physical labor in it. Unfortunately, I do.
