Sounds like it would be nice evening weather, if it only were, say, ten or one-hundred and seventy degrees warmer.

LOL

It's a deal! You can have my winter, and I'll take your summer.

We used to own a horse and do the horse show thing, and I remember how miserable these hot, humid days are for horses, so I definitely know where you're coming from as a horse owner. People always assume that horses are miserable in the winter, but from what I was told by many "horsey" people, winter is much better for horses than summer. They get so sweaty...and don't even get me started on the flies. I used to feel so sorry for horses when flies landed on their backs. Not questioning God's handiwork or anything, but it's too bad that an animal so large that lives outside doesn't at least have hands to swat flies, since a tail can only go so far, and those fly sheets can be so hot.

Really I know I shouldn't complain as 19 tornados didn't hit the state the same day. None took a 6 mle long strip out of town, We are not under 23 feet of water.
But if people can crab about a little snow and cold I can crab about this stinking heat, and yes I do stink.

Sounds like you might like the weather in northwest Wyoming or western Montana, but you would need to stay up in the higher elevations.

I liked Superior Montana real well, people there treated me very well when I had to do an extended stay several years ago. As I remember it It was in the hundreds as I drove across ND on 94 but was confortable in Superior.

I bet truth be knowen people who say they love this crappy 90+F temps and heat index well over100F are sitting in their air conditioned office/home/car and are not outdoors trying to do auctual work like lawn mowing trimming, building Nucs, adding honey supers andmany other stuff that has to be done around a homestead. If they are really outdoors they are at the beach or by the pool they sure are not working unless their job depends on it.

Come on snow and winter. I can add heaver weight long johns a thicker shirt even an insulated one if need be to stay warm while shoveling and plowing snow,. I can remove a little ifI start to get to warm while cutting & spliting firewood. I can add if the wind chill gets down below zero while out trying to shoot a youte snowmobileing and even cross country sking.

This dog days of summer weather ya can't remove enough even in your own home to stay cool.

The horse people around me are yuppies and idots.They all have those nicly painted black or white board fences, Mow the pasture as much as they do the lawn and remove all trees from the pasture. Of course the horse is misrable, no shade, no deep grass to swing the head thru to remove the flies or roll in. But their place shure looks like the pictures in Country Life Magazine.
Peta auto stomp on their heads the way the horses are treated.

Complaining about warm weather after 6 months of cool/cold weather should be illegal.

How are the humidity levels? That was the only thing I couldn't stand about the weather in MI. When I was there about a month ago, it was actually pretty tolerable.

Yesterday was very humid, today not so much. It's gorgeous; brilliantly sunny, and 77 degrees with a crisp breeze and 32% humidity, at least here in the SE corner of the state.
