Luckily heat like this in Chicago is extremely rare.
Not that rare anymore, use to be.

I like my summers hot, my winters cold and spring and fall temperate but this is too much-High of 99 in Philly today, 102 tomorrow, 98 Saturday and overnight temps aren't expected to fall below 80 for a few days.

As do I. 105 degrees is much more manageable than -44 degrees(International Falls MN Winter 2010) Oh yeah, and it's never too hot, to travel anywhere by car. You can't get trapped in Heat(as miserable as it may be).

And they say it's miserable in the South. You guys up North have some severe weather problems, whether it's winter or summer. That's one reason I think having 4 seasons is overrated. When it's cold it's DEATH, and when it's hot it's HELLLLL!!

Why did you take off work? No A/C where you work or do you work outside?

It's 100 in Syracuse. First time in nine years!

If I weren't so damn hairy, this weather would be more tolerable. I'm walking around with a freakin' sweater vest on!

I work at UPS as a loader. In my area, the A/C is in the break room.

I think I've become more sensitive to the heat as I've got older. I used to spend my summers outside, doing landscaping and cleaning pools. Now I curse the world if I have to step outside to hit the ATM.

Ok, then I can not clown you too bad.

FWIW, I used to work for Big Brown at Corporate several years back...I am not surprised, and frankly upset that they still have issues like this. Tsk tsk tsk.

My car said 107 about an hour ago - think this nasty suburban parking lot is like a convection oven. I think it is actually supposed to hit 100 today in Philly and 102 tomorrow. Honestly high 90s are not rare in the summer but 102 sure is

And War there is probably a 10-15 mph breeze here - not sure it really helps
