I hear ya

Well, I was in NYC on July 4th and that was my last day there. I was there from July 1st until the 4th. The forecast was expected to be 94 degrees. It actually felt like 90-92 degrees to me. And it didn't really bother me. I must be one tough guy Besides, in the summer it is supposed to be hot otherwise it wouldn't be a real summer IMO. That stated, the high humidity can make it tough on people. I was also delighted that I was able to breathe better over there and my allergies were MUCH better.

That's because it's so dry (like out West ), and you escaped the beautiful 100's lol. Speaking of dry I was in Queens today and those new trees they planted (Million Trees NYC) are starting to turn brown, the grass is white/brown, we need some rain badly, as much as I love heat & sun we need some strong storms to drop some rain. I don't even remember the last time it rained, I think the last rainy day was in like May or June and that was really it, maybe a little something after that but nothing much.

I hope those new trees aren't dying.

I am not complaining about the heat in New York City right now and I am actually enjoying it. Plenty of people are.

But at the same time, there are also plenty of people that are actually complaining about the heat and it doesn't make sense to me. Temperatures in the 90s and 80s are enjoyable summer high temperatures to me.

As I feared, we went from a long cold Spring right to a boiling pre-Summer (Summer comes in 2 weeks.)
Today records are predicted to fall with most guessing 99°.

Dammit, I installed a 12,000 BTU air conditioner and it looks like I should have chosen 14,000.

It would make sense if you realize you like the heat but we don't!
