I see you have borrowed my "Hot" definition, but at least we are in agreement.
I discovered how I really felt about what "hot" is after a vacation to Myrtle Beach, SC.
"Hot weather" only lasts 1-3 days here, so it's really hard to learn what's hot and what's not.

I have no idea what I'd consider extreme heat.
I've only felt that in artificial environments.
But I do know a heat index of 115 F is not extreme; possibly irritating, I'd agree with that.

Good thing you're moving back to Florida.

Toronto gets plenty of days with highs lower than "Comfortable" in Summer... In fact we get more days lower than comfortable than even in your "Warm" category in a normal/cooler summer. Keene NH is probably similar.

It gets that dry in eastern Kansas?!?...

I've never seen humidity lower than 22% when it's 90 F or above.
Usually we have 40% or higher humidity in 90+ F weather.
