    That's terrible, I'd have to mount an A/C unit in the floor so I could pass out on it!

    Only 75 at the moment in Maine. I should go for a bicycle ride later and enjoy the evening.

    Ouch. It's like 85 and cloudy here. OK has had a very mild summer so far, and after a winter that seemed to last forever.

    A buddy of mine is running in this next week: AdventureCORPS Presents the Badwater Ultramarathon Official Website

    One hundred and thirty five miles, run in what might be 130 degree heat. Yes, he's insane.

    Having spent some considerable time in temps of 120 and above, I feel your pain. Meanwhile, in Bogota today it's 63 and mostly sunny. Tomorrow, it will be 63 and partly cloudy. Next week, it will be 63 and partly sunny. Next month, it will be 63 and....

    It's not even 65F here, in Portland (as of noon).

    117 degrees is rough. That's the hottest I have ever experienced. Nicely, I was just passing through. Can't imagine living in such a place, just because of the temps. When bubbling on the setting for "London Broil" the beauty of a place wouldn't be enough, for me.

    I'm gonna have to start inventing my backpack AC unit,a self contained unit that blasts a cool curtain of air around an individual during times when they have to go outside when the asphalt starts bubbling like a prehistoric tar pit

    Rocky,

    Everybody has bad weather. Didn't you know that? For you desert dwellers it's heat. For us Mid-Westerns it's -20 degrees with a wind chill taking it down another 10 or 20 degrees. Brrrrrrr!

    Quit your complaining, crack open a cold beverage, and go jump in a pool!

    Hey! 117 degrees. So, can you really cook an egg on the roof of your car?

    "Humidity". Thats our enemy. We see triple-digits quite frequently over the summer, and its like auto-sweat soon as you walk out the door. Ironically, I've never personally owned a vehicle with working A/C. I'm up in WVA for now, its about 70-ish going by how it feels,...PERFECT! We're leaving for home tomorrow afternoon. I'll definitely miss the summer climate up here when we get back.

    Tucson is not quite as hot, I work outside, an it is not unusual for me to work on a roof (HVAC) for the better part of the day.

    I won't argue the point, that temps above 110 are not fun to work in, but it is better than 32 degrees; when I am miserable.
    Don't tread on me or mine.

    Wellll.... some of the time. Not so much at the moment.

    The traditional definition of the AZ "monsoon" season is 3 consecutive days with a dew point of 55F or higher. As of today - perhaps even yesterday, depending on where you are in the Phx area, the season is upon us.

    What it means is that for about the next 10 weeks we will get highly localized, intense cloudbursts lasting from maybe 2 to 20 minutes. With pretty flat terrain, no real storm sewer system and soil like concrete, streets can fill up wth runoff pretty quickly. Not a good time of year to pitch a tent in a wash out in the desert!

    For a "newcomer" - only my 8th summer out here - 110 is hot, but 115 or over is just freakin' oppressive!
