This is VERY interesting. What strikes me the most when looking at this list isn't the fact that so many records have been broken, but rather the number of years where Tennessee has experienced this kind of oppressive heat before: 1901, 1930, 1952, 1980, 1983, and 2007. I can't imagine what it was like in 1901 and 1930 when a/c didn't exist and most people didn't even have ceiling fans to keep them cool.

I know! I also think a lot about "Old Florida" and how they built their homes to take advantage of breezes and other "tricks." The plantations that line the James River in Virginia had similar cooling measures, as well.
