I snowboard during my summer months if I can. Like last summer year I was in Chile snowboarding in the Andes at 12,000+ feet. Anything more than 5 degrees is hot.

I have central air in my unit and it wasnt working. Umm..how hot..enough that I was sweating in my sleep.
My fishies were complaining and sitting at the bottom of my tank. I drop some nice cold water and they went bonkers. Poor fishy.

It's hard to sympathize with those folk in the North East when the temp routinely breaks 100 degrees here in Texas (DFW).

yeah but you're used to that heat.

for you, it would be like going to work in -30C weather.
its a routine thing here, while if you're not used to the temps, they feel alot worse.

Gotta love the San francisco Bay Area sometimes. 50 degrees F is cold, and 100 is hot (low humidity, of course). But where do I go many weekends? Sacramento, where 100 is average it seems, for many months of the year...

There's a big difference though....your over 100 temps are dry heat. I'll take 110 and dry over 90 and humid. The humidity is what really kills you.

That reminds me of one of my favorite Mark Twain quotes..."The coldest winter I ever had was the summer I spent in San Francisco!"

Oh yes, I know this. I count myself fortunate on that one. However, I do feel very, very cold when it's 40 degrees out. :-)

Tell me about that humidity. You folks in Texas don't have it any worse than many people on the east coast. The company I work for has its headquarters in the D.C. area and I visit there once a year, usually in the summer. Thank goodness the hotels are air conditioned.

The last two years, I visited a friend in Baltimore while I was in the area and spent the night at his house. No A/C, sweating like crazy -- even with a fan blowing directly at me. Makes me wonder how those Pilgrims survived out there.

I'll take California weather anytime.

Okay Peter, I see why this year it was a hotel in Bethesda instead.

No dry heat here. We get plenty of moisture from the Gulf. You must be confusing Texas with Arizona or Nevada where the heat truely is dry. And yes, when the temp drops below 40, I run for the fireplace.
