I'm a weather spy. When I'm uncomfortable here in summer, I get great relief to see how others are suffering in other parts of the country. It cools me down. I just have to look at the unbearable Deep South in summer, any day of the summer, and I feel a cool blast of air in my face!

You don't think it escaped my attention, periodically, how blasted hot it can get in the Northwest in summer. I don't care! Even if it's a hot blast for 3 days and with the combined humidity, no thanks!

Even 80 degrees in Seattle and Portland in summer, with combined humidity, would be mightily uncomfortable to this desert rat. Last year Portland hit
100+ for a couple days there. EEEgod! Given they're not used to that, when it does happen, does it turn everyone there into temporary cripples?

Kind of like a snow storm in the south, and everything gets closed and grinds to a halt, as to no equipment or know how....at least with the heat...turn on the air, fan, get a bucket of water...

Maybe rediculous is the act of doing diculous over again?

RE-diculous

I have seen that spelling a lot too, floors me.

Hey, count your blessings, I live in SE TX, and have to bear temps in the high 90's to the triple digits WITH humidity percentile in the same digits, I find the Phoenix area comfortable and much more bearable when I pass thru on the way to CA for family vacations every summer, in fact we like to spend the night there in Chandler and eat at the Marie Calendar's for supper! I recall after hurricane Rita hit us in late Sep,'05, the Phoenix firefighters, we had working with us the following month, swore they would never complain about their heat in AZ again after experiencing our sweltering fall!

I was there for the snow in Fort Polk, Louisiana. That was ridiculous. I was there for a month, didn't bring the cold weather gear because it was NOVEMBER/DECEMBER IN LOUISIANA. WTF. That was the most miserable month of my life. 25 degrees with not jacket, no gloves, and having to fly in that.
