I don't think people are unaware, it is more of a "has to be experienced to believed" what 98 with 80% humidity and no breeze for 4 months with much stronger UV rays because of the location feels like phenomenon. It would be the same way with somebody from Florida moving to Minnesota and knowing it gets that cold, but it "has to be experienced to believed" of what -20 F, with 30mph winds for 4 months actually feels like.

Most people who move to Florida never spent a complete summer there, one can't imagine what it is like year round until living through it.

Fort Lauderdale 9:40 pm 84 degrees, not bad. Open window and a fan. Of course, I don't use air anyway so the windows are always open.

65 at night is awesome! And I'm saying this as a native Floridian! 91 degrees at 7:30 at night is just too hot!
