Can't sit in the shower all day here! It's 4 minute showers once a day!

Well I remember it happened to this one guy who was running a marathon on a really hot day. I'll see if I can find any info on it but I do recall officials got a little smarter about people competing in high temps afterwards, although if we look at the recent tennis here in Oz it seems they've forgotten.

Yes, but Summerlings description (at least for me) conjured up an image of a morning likely in the mid-high 60's F, an afternoon definitely above 80 F, likely hitting 85 F, but not neccessarily hitting or passing 90 F. It also sounds like that the temp is somewhere from the high 70's to low 80's F by evening, as people seem to be enjoying themselves from simply the added comfort of a fan.

"mild" summer weather to me means

- feeling noticeably cold unlikely, at any time of day or night
- feeling heat illness unlikely
- a swim feels refreshing/preferable from 10 am through 5pm
- not being able to swim is "not a problem" however
- "mild summer" enables a swim without strong shivers and at the same time
conditions for long walks wearing dry, typical summer clothing without excessive discomfort, even in the sunshine.

Most people NEED 80's F to be able to do all that.
If the highs were in the 70's,
a swim not only might not be the prefered form of afternoon comfort,
but many people might actually prefer to stay dry... as being wet can make you cold.

**FYI, 92 F and 55% humidity is always experienced by me as "mild" summer weather,
using my own qualitative definition of "mild" summer weather.

Actually now that I think about it CC, I'm fairly certain I saw an island once that has an average temp of 26c year round.

Can't remember if it's Lord Howe or Norfolk or one of those.

I'll see what I can find.

^^ Norfork, nor Lord Howe don't even remotely average an annual temp of 26C.

Wouldn't that be boring, no variety, same temp range? I guess I just don't get it and why I've never understood Hawaii, I know alot of people who would love to live there, definitely not me!

For people sensitive or annoyed by cold, lack of cold simply means lack of annoyance.
Like going to a quiet restaurant instead of a crowded, noisy one.
