When I was 8, my parents got ONE window unit for their bedroom and on the hottest nights only, we were invited to drag our mattresses into their bedroom so we could sleep.
LOL, at least my Mother put it in a common room. She figured if she cooled the kitchen, she could still cook. Liz

Today the high was 97 and the heat index was 109 and it's just May. It only gets worse as the summer goes on, and the humidity gets downright miserable sometimes. If you can't stand the summers in New York, then I wouldn't advise that you move here. We make New York look tame, trust me.

I will be visiting NC in about one week - roadtrip including western mountain area, central NC, and coast. Not sure what to make out of the early hot and humid season this year. I have never been to NC but I know Singapore which is also hot (usually 90 to 95F) and humid (90 to 100%). Can anybody comment - is it similar in NC right now? Thanx

The worst part is that the sun's out and you feel like you should be outside, but you just can't go out because it's too hot. I knew it would be hot before I moved down here, but being a teacher, I want to go out and enjoy my summer break--not spend it holed up indoors as if it's winter. The climate is a main reason why I'm moving back to Michigan in July. I'll actually take a foot of snow over a 100 F heat index any day. At least I can play in the snow.

You can play in the heat. There is plenty of swimming holes.

You know thats the funny thing..even the pools and lake are like swimming in a hot tub in July and August...its not even refreshing..!

I'm surprised more people aren't taken by summertime thunderstorms and such, which wouldn't be around if not for the heat. Maybe it's because I grew up in FL so the heat doesn't bother me, but I prefer 90-degree temps. for 3 months out of the year with occasional thunderboomers, over 75 degrees all summer but no rain at all between May and October (like in San Francisco)...that's borrrr-riiiing. One of my favorite summertime "paradise" experiences is sitting on the back porch of a bbq joint on a hot, humid, summer evening eating Carolina chopped pork with collards and mac&cheese and a tall glass of sweet tea, while listening to live bluegrass music, with distant thunderstorms booming and flashing all around.
