    YIKES! But at least it is a dry heat. Here - 90° feels over 100° due to humidity. I'll take dry heat any day! LOL!
     
  4. Whoa, that's HOT!!!!! Here we have been experiencing a delightfully cool day with low humidity and pleasant temps in the low 80's.....a true relief after just having had several miserable days of high heat and high humidity, the combination of which is thoroughly, totally yucky, suffocating and stifling. It was something like 95 at the worst and felt more like 105 thanks to the high humidity.

    77 here too. It’s pretty comfortable. I was getting text messages yesterday from friends in Southern California with pics of their thermometers. All were over 110.
     
  6. 106 here today.
    I'm ready for fall.

  7. I've been in 110 - 120 degree heat with low humidity twice and I've been in 90 - 95 degree heat with high humidity many, many times. I'll take the latter any day. The only way I can describe the former when there is a breeze that is supposedly going to cool things off is that it's like standing in front of an oven when a fan is only making things worse by blowing the hot air onto you. Totally oppressive unlike anything I've ever experienced.

  8. Have to laugh at the term "dry heat" When you step outside and
    you get punched in the face with a blast furnace greeting...it's HOT.
    Moisture gets sucked out of your eyes and throat when it's over 100.
    Lived back East for 30 years with the humidity and 90's. They both suck.
    Like Dave, I'm totally ready for Fall. :D

    I was born in Albuquerque and have spent a lot of time in New Mexico and southwestern deserts. I'll take that heat over heat and humidity any day!

    Of course, given a choice I'd MUCH prefer mid 70°s and low humidity any day! LOL!

    Mike & Will: well said! It is hard to describe the impact the heat - even a "dry heat" has. As I get older it seems even more pronounced, under 100 ain't bad, 100 - 105 is tolerable, over 110 feels like I'm going to keel over and burst into flames :dead:
