Default 107 degrees? you Montanans have it made

Last year around this time it hit a mere 98 degrees in New York, but the humidity was through the roof. As of midnight that day, the thermometer in my un-airconditioned apartment was pinned at 84 degrees. Sweat dripped from my neck as I tried to sleep. You haven't experienced heat until humidity is thrown in.

I've been reading the daily weather reports for Missoula, a possible retirement destination. My jaw drops when I see humidity in the teens, heat index LOWER than the actual temp, and overnight temps in the 50's.

From my perspective, if you can avoid outdoors from 1PM to 5PM, a Montana heatwave is manageable. Comments?

It isn't horrible here compared to GA or NC, I just open up the house at about 4am and when the temp starts rising above 68 I close it up and close the blinds. It has been staying about 75 or lower which is great when it is 100.

Yea but I bet you have a nice house with trees and all. I have a mobile stuck out in the sun with no porch roof or overhangs, trees or nothing. It reminds me of the little hot box torture huts in the sun you see in W.W. II german P.O.W. camp movies. The lawn is a full time job keeping it green !
It can get humid here sort of, when monsoon high moisture comes up it can get very uncomfortible at times but mostly its pretty dry.

I have experienced that humidity...went to Fort Wayne, Indiana at 5 mos pregnant, in July. Stayed in a house with NO a/c. What a sweat box. Also went to Virginia and Wash. D/C in late June ealry JUly. OMG, D/C was overwhelming. We started sightseeing early and got back to hotel room by noon! Thankful for the pool. Humidity is murder on Asthmatics
