Trapped inside?!

Spent about four hours at the beach today, and another half hour in the pool... going out now downtown to the waterfront, where undoubtedly there'll be many milling about and eating outside.

You'll never get acclimated to warmer temps if you sit in AC all day.

Perfect description. Ah, the gentle warmth of Florida-where the concrete radiates heat 24 hours a day and where the morning air feels like someone is sitting on your chest. Not to mention the ever popular six months of hurricanes. Ain't summer grand?

+1 - I felt cold today when I went inside my house that is set at 80. This is the perfect weather.

I work inside and outside all day every day(M-F), and guess what??? After 16 years, I have NOT acclimated to this hellish heat..... After an hour or so outside, I am dying to get back inside, and after I just get used to being cool inside I end up having to be out again, so what is the cure for that????? And no, a different job is not the answer.

Don't know what the "cure" for being uncomfortable in hot weather is.

I'm happy to see the snowbirders head out and golf fees are half price. Finally get to play some beautiful courses starting today. Lightweight clothing, broad rim hats, 80+SPF sun block, lots of h20 to drink. Then some time in the pool afterwards..... Going to have a great time out in the sun/heat today.

Very true, I agree. As a native Floridian I have never acclimated and probably will never. I get major headaches, migraines as a child from the heat actually. I hate feeling sick and sticky from the heat and humidity, so its easier to just sit in the A/C. I don't know if everyone is built to deal with the heat and humidity here, my mother who is from Europe can work out in the yard for hours and is fine, yet I who was born in Florida can't handle it. I really don't know who my ancestors did it here in Florida before the invention of the a/c.

Doggiebus, are you looking into relocating elsewhere?

As a native Floridian, I never really remember caring about the heat that much. I'd play outside all day, and I'm sure I was hot, but I dont remember it ever getting in the way of my day when playing outside.

Now as an adult, it bothers me more. I got used to it I guess, but just dont like it.

Well hopefully i will find out more about what is going on with my body in the next couple days. I went for full panel blood tests, and the doctor told me my heat intolerance may possibly be a thyroid issue. Hoping for the best. All I can say is today just plain sucks. 88 here and index is ALREADY 99.... Yeah, and it is 11AM.... I just came home for a bottle of powerade, I felt nausea coming on, and like I was going to pass out. Lucky me, got to work on the broken sprinkler line after a truck ran it over. I think IMO people are nuts that like to be out in this.

I also had to leave florida and move north i had a thyroid condition too and it started to give me migraines and rashes and so the dr recomended i move somewhere , where there are four seasons and that is what i did . It is not as if i wanted too but most of my family and friends are down there in florida and do really well with it . go figure yeah i dont think i would do it again without being on medication .move to florida i mean. Oh well good luck to you .
