It's only going to get worse! Living here we know this. The next few months will be really hot.
Here's hoping the hurricanes stay away.

At least we have no blizzards, blinding snow, tornadoes, massive fires, mudslides, or earthquakes.
Every area has it's down sides. I choose to be in the heat - rather than freeze my back-side off.
To each his or her own. We all pick and choose.

News Flash.

Tampa is in Florida which is in the southern region of the country.

Temperatures are warmer here than up north much of the year.

Just thought I would post this since we seem to be getting a couple of new threads a day saying it is hot in Florida.

And yes, some people like the heat.

So, when hurricanes happen, does everyone just stay inside? Or do you have to actually like evacuate the area?

Not discrediting your dislike of the heat at all --- but at least you're in FL! I'd much rather be in 95 degree weather there, than where I'm at right now! (and hopefully soon, we will be back down there...)

I enjoy the heat. I was actually out and walking around today. The only bad part about today was the horrible humidity around 2PM and again around 930PM.

People, you could all move up here to NYC and bask in the humidity - we get it too - and then wait until the winter when every part of your body is freezing and you just can't seem to get warm. The cold has a way of getting into your bones and staying until April. IMHO there aren't enough sweaters and cups of hot tea to ward off the chills.
To top it all off you can have the chore of salting walkways, shoveling snow, tiptoeing carefully so as not to slip and fall and break a bone or crack your head open on ice - my neighbor died this way.
Then there are all the drivers who think driving 50mph on city streets in slick conditions is no biggie...

Yes, I tell you...what a delight it is here....NOT!

My SO and I will be arriving in the TBA on tuesday for a week to find rentals. We'll be moving in early august, right after I close on my house. I finally, finally, finally get to leave NY and move south.
I'll take the heat and humidity over the winter blues any day.

See y'all soon!

Ok, about the up north cold, I am European and have lived with the cold 90% of my life.......UNLESS you are outside/working outside/playing/hiking/waiting for the bus.....................the rest of the time you are in a car, house, or office!?????????? are offices/houses/cars up north without electricity or gas? you make it sound like you all live outside in an igloo! or tent!

I'm about 100-200 miles north of you and our high today is 96 with a heat index of 102.

A local weather reporter (Channel 8, I think) was forecasting today's temperatures to be another record matching 96 degrees, but the heat index would be 105-108. Be careful if you're outside for very long!
