I say Houston feels hotter, but Dallas is actually hotter. Both are hot as hell for sure. It rains a lot more here in spots which cools things down, but also makes it more humid. Houston feels hotter though to me.

That has to scare you locals, no? I think it's "cool" when temps break 100 degrees here but that's only because it lasts for a day or two at most, otherwise I'd never leave the house!

100 degrees or hotter for one week straight isn't normal.

All of the above?

Houston feels hotter. But Dallas is its own slice of hell in the summer.

It happens sometimes, 6 days ago Dallas hit 100 degrees or hotter 6 times this year.

It is more than that now.
