The humidity is so important. If it's low then 70 might be ok. I really prefer highs in the low 50's I HATE THE HEAT!!!

Probably 85 in humidity. I don't know what that would equal out in the desert. Today it was about 80 with no humidity--a rarity in this area. I didn't sweat at all. When it's 95 out in the middle of the summer, all I have to do is walk to the car and I'm drenched.

I think the best temperature is around 55-60 (but no breeze, because then it would feel a little too chilly). There's still a slight nip to the air to keep you reasonably cool, but it's warm enough to enjoy without a coat.

If we're talking with a breeze, 75-80 is nice. Even 90 with a breeze is not awful. Take away the breeze and it gets a little tough.

I noticed you live in AZ. I know this is probably a dumb question to you, but I've never been to the Desert Southwest...I absolutely LOVE what I've seen. I wouldn't want to move out there, but I want to visit really badly. I want to come out there in the dead of the summer though. Anyway, if you read this, can you tell me how y'all function in the summer? I know Phoenix has had a couple of morning lows in the upper 90s in the past few summers and I wonder if you walk outside for the paper or to head to work and instantly start sweating. Also, how does 115 dry degrees feel? Is it unbearably hot or is it a normal hot that won't keep you from going outside to do whatever you have to do? Here in the South, 95 humid degrees is quite hot, but people still go out and do their thing. Around sunset, when it's about 88-90 out, people start going out to jog and stuff. How's the desert in the middle of summer?

If it's humid, 65 is way too warm. If it isn't humid, I like 75 for the high and 40 for the low. Fat chance of getting that often where I live.

Same here. Humidity and wind can make all the difference in the world.

Usually people stay indoors when it's 110+ out, everyone either does their thing in the morning or in the evening. From about 10 in the morning to 4 in the evening, you will barely see anybody walking around. Then when it cools down, everybody is out and about. Not having humidity is one positive side. You don't stick to the couch when you sit down.

115F is VERY hot but it isn't to the point where it's completely unbearable, yes you'll sweat. Everyone here drinks plenty of bottled water. I like to jog in the mornings but I do it before 7 am.

ive been to Las Vegas and Israel when it was 100-105 in the shade and it was pretty darn hot. Not sticky but a dry heat not unlike an oven. Id say it was about as miserable as the humid 90-95 degree heat here in Florida.

NAH, when did you ever mention being to Vegas or Israel? Are you just pulling this out of your butt? I'm sorry, it's just weird how you never mentioned these things before.

Plus, you're selling stuffed toys to move to Oil City but can afford to visit Israel, Vegas, San Francisco, Wyoming, etc etc?
