I love how people say 100+ summers in Sacramento when it reality we probably are over 100 about 5 days out of the entire summer. Most of the time it's low to mid 90's.

The National Weather Service says on pg 43 here, that there are on average 84 days above 90 in Sacramento, 22 days on average above 100 and 5 days above 105.

Of course if you have air conditioning, the summer heat is just not an issue.

22 days above 100? I'd have a hard time believe that. Do you have a link?

84 days above 90 I can believe, like I said from what I can see it's mostly low to mid 90's during the summer.

Per the National Weather Service page 46(see link on above post), the most 100+ days in Sacramento in a year is 41 in 1988!..Rounding out the top three are 38 days in 1996(and 1984), and 36 days in 2002, with many other years of at leat 20 or more days. Yeah , I would say our 'typical' summer days are in the low to mid 90's, but we 'usually' get more than just 5 days over 100...Don't forget we have many summer days when the temp is mostly hovering in the upper 90's but then will briefly top out at 100 or 101...All those days like that add up!

Do you even live in Sacramento?

An average is an average; some years will see less than 22 days and others will see more. I remember...maybe 1995 when it was over 100˚F for two weeks straight.

Sorry for bringing back to life an old thread. But it seriously irks me when I hear people describing Sacramento as a "redneck" town. Someone who would say Sacramento is a redneck town obviously has not lived in the city, or are completely ignorant or purposefully ignoring the city's demographics.

Sacramento is less than 50% caucasian. It has large populations of hispanics, blacks, and Asians. Also, the Caucasian population within Sacramento PROPER is typically quite liberal. Witness the large gay friendly neighborhoods in Midtown and the fact that Sacramento perenially votes Democrat. True, the outer areas of Sacramento such as Folsom, Roseville are more conservative and whiter. But is this necessarily a bad thing? Those are nice, safe neighborhoods with high standards of living, they are hardly "redneck". I think if one wants to see redneck, they need to take a drive through some backwoods areas in the old South. Those areas hardly look like the wealthy suburbs of Sacramento. I'd much rather live in a conservative area that is safe and prosperous, than in a "liberal" area where there are daily shootings and carjackings.

BTW, I'm Asian, highly educated, make a far higher than median income, politically moderate and I live in Sacramento and am sick of people bashing it!!! Sacramento has a lot going for it, and although it has been slower to rise than other California cities, it has great potential and will be filling it in the years to come. It is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the US (Far faster than Portland), has a fast growing green technology industry, many large urban infill projects, wealthy suburbs, a good population of the cultured class living in its core, diverse and excellent restaurants, and it is within 2 hours away from San Francisco!

BTW, I've been to Portland. Sorry to say, but I was not impressed. I think the Sacramento area has far greater diversity in cultures/cuisines/lifestyles/neighborhoods/climate/topography.

And the air is dry and everything is air-conditioned so who cares?

Yea it sounds like this guy was describing South FL here or Tampa area when it came to the Cletus types on the highways. Tampa is 10 yrs behind Portland in progressivism roughly. Even if both are the same amount of time away, NorCal in general is different from S FL.
