    Sweat is good for us old folks. Opens your pores and lets out all the impurities of beer, liquor, pizza, Cheetos, and corn dogs.

      Yeah, you can keep that stifling heat and humidity. I lived in Marion County for about 10 years, great in the winter, not so great in the summer if'n you have to work outside.

      Yup! Florida sucks balls in the summer. Too hot to do much of anything. I try to think of it as a reverse winter. It's just the season when the weather is too extreme to do much in. In Maryland, it was cold from mid October to late May, with some good weather occasionally. Summers were hot as hell and rainy up there too. My last Winter in Maryland, I spent climbing up on my roof to shovel off the snow, so my house wouldn't cave in.......

      Florida native use to think it was hot here in the summer till I worked in Kuwait for 2 years 130 degrees during August/September maybe 10-15% humidity but the bad part was when the sun went down maybe 100 degrees but 70-80% humidity sucks.

      It's actually been a little below average humidity this year

      A little above temp wise (sometimes considerably above) but the slightly lower humidity most days more than makes up for 10 degrees hotter.

      I've been here since 1988

      I don't remember this many days near, at, or over 100 until just a couple of years ago.

      I do remember that you could set your watch to the rain every summer afternoon.
      That has kind of gone away in the last decade.

        I’ve been to Kuwait a few times and it was the hottest place I’ve been to, especially port detail. No AC in the tents full of boots can get pretty smelly

        Everyone....

        The reason is that in Carlie, there is no shade. The nominal temperatures of Pa. aren’t in the mid to upper 90’s. The heat index can rise above 110 and often does. Humidity is very high for the MoPar meet. It’s just that time of year, the dog days of summer. Up north, it truly is a killer as most people die this time of year due to the Oppressive heat and humidity increase. Normal summer temps are mid to high ‘80’s. The fairgrounds are devoid of a breeze.

        The heat swing from winter to summer is way way way larger than yours by many degrees. Winter temps can plummeting well below zero, wind chill not included.

        Southerners. Ya scoff at this. But do remember that it is all relative. You guys cry at temps that we still run around in a light jacket and while 3 feet of snow is no joke, we can handle it and drive through it. We laugh when northern Ga. closes down on an inch of snow. BUT we do understand lack of driving experience and NO snow removal equipment makes that a serious matter for you guys. Yes! Do stay at home and snap pictures!
        Be safe!

        Carlie’s stagnated oppressive heat normally comes during the time of year when we call it a heat wave. It’s never a joke when temps rise 10, 15+ degrees over normal.

        Absolutely!!!!!!!!!

        Do stay hydrated!!!!!!

        I'm the opposite, I'll take 10 over 100 any day. Can always add another layer but can only take so much off.

          Today was hot here in sunny manitoba 85 or so. No wind.
          So working outside in the shade isnt bad. Night is still pretty cool though.
          4-5 more days of it then maybe some rain.
          I used to love the heat, swimming,cruising with the windows down,a/c was nonexistant way back when, businesses and people with money had a/c
          And the cars with a/c didint exist in my circle of friends.

          Its not unbearable, dont know how you southern’ers manage.
