Amen to that! Unfortunately, my A/C just stopped working in my car and riding with the windows down really doesn't help at these temperatures. BTW, it's 105 now...

Oh this is just a tease. The humidity hasn't even really hit yet.

If this is some sort of sign how the next 12 weeks are going to be though, I'm hibernating until September.

Seems like this will be one of those summers where one does not leave the house, if there is a choice involved, until about 7pm when temps cool down into the 80s.

Yes, I find myself becoming more nocturnal during summer.

Ooh that's rough.

But seriously can you imagine the South before A/C? And in the days before shorts, sandals, and t-shirts? No wonder we still have a reputation for being slow .

Also before:

-Most people took daily baths
-Wide usage of deodorant
-Widely available indoor plumbing
-Horses and mules were major forms of transport
-Men wore three piece suits at all times
-Women wore dresses with enough material to make 12 dresses today

Yeah, just a few reasons why I am glad I was born in the 70s.

Earlier I was looking up something on Google Maps and saw the great white expanse of northern Canada and Greenland and thought: It might be time for a vacay up north. Way north.

I think this is a reason why The South wasn't heavily populated pre-1940s.

But to your second point - it's actually better for your body to be covered with breathable clothes (i.e., long-sleeved shirts and long pants) than have a tank-top and shorts on. Your body stays protected from the sun but is still able to cool off. There is a reason why, even today, cowboys in TX and Z continue to wear jeans and long shirts while they are out on the farms in the 90+ degree heat.

By the way, I just moved out of Altanta after spending 5 years there at Georgia Tech for my degree. I currently live in the Boston area. Today was 70 F, 30% humidity. And tonight my place (in the 'burbs) is dropping down close to 40 F. Aaaaahhh...
