I was pregnant here in the Summer in 1973 & 1974. I gave birth rocking a great tan.

Oh man, in 1996 we had a lot of big monsoons and lost electricity for long periods of time (once 24 hours). Couldn't even leave my house to go to my parents because all the traffic lights were out also. I was calling up SRP, begging them to get my power (AC!) back on, like the crazy pregnant girl I was. My hub would laugh, knowing they were probably thinking "it's that crazy pregnant woman again!"

I am the same way. I lived in St. Louis for a while, and I managed to get first bite on my hands two years in A row with two pairs of gloves on. I am definitely one of those people who do better when it is at least 80 outside.

Same here. Yesterday I went to get coffee a few blocks away during work. It was around 90 and humid, felt great. I love sweating and heat. Much better than being cold and dry all day. Although by the time I got back my back was wet, stepping outside and feeling that warm blanket wrap around my back and arms...oh soo good.

You are brave to be out there hiking now. Maybe at 5am.

This was before it got so hot. Jim is still hiking, but leaves the house around 6AM. I load him up with water and a kiss goodbye in case I don't see him again. If he isn't hiking, he's running. He thinks sweating is good for you. I prefer my sweating to be done in a pool.

That's me, but I stay perpetually confused. I will go outside to walk around and get some fresh air, forget I have the light sweater on, and start sweltering.

My area of NC is around 85 today, which is a little cooler. We have been in the 90's and very humid.

At noon I was eating outside, having a footlong with chili sauce and jalapenos and steaming hot fries. It was 92 but we were in the shade and there was a wee breeze. It was great.
But on the way back to work I got stuck in construction. In the blazing sun. In a black Jeep. With no AC. I have to say it wasn't as great.
Still prefer it to being cold tho.

Me too. We are roasting in northern MO with temps close to 100 and dews over 70 every day but I still prefer it to winter. If I had an outdoor labor job I bet I'd be singing a different tune.

Humidity broke just enough to make last evening really pleasant on the deck. We even ate our supper outside. Luckily, the bugs seemed to have dissipated too.

we finally got a short thunderstorm after 8pm, but it didn't seem to help much at all. it was slightly cooler when i went out later, but this morning, even though we had another storm roll through between 2 and 3 this morning, it's back to humid.

we are expecting it to be 28C with a humidex of 33C (83/92F) which will probably feel cool compared to 33C with a humidex of 45C (92/113F) that we had yesterday!

We got hit with tornados yesterday. Weather at work was brutal, but luckily no damage at home, only one plant knocked over.

I have lots of clients up north without power till tomorrow at the earliest and some pretty serious clean up ahead

I absolutely hate the heat. Our high is 104 and the humidity is at 30%. What happened to the dry heat?

Yes it's been ridiculously hot here in central Pa... thank goodness the heat wave seems to have broken today.

I grew up in Pa and do NOT remember it being this hot.
