    Paris was 113 the other day, so I say 113.

    It was 117 once when I was at the river, but that was Heaven.

    So far this summer, we have had two days just over ninety degrees. Currently, it is sixty-five degrees with a heavy mist.

    I spent some time in Singapore. The weather is the same every day of the year, ninety-five degrees and ninety-five percent humidity with afternoon showers. You get up in the morning and take a shower. You get a towel and dry off, get a towel and dry off, get a towel and dry off, get a towel and dry off.

    Not nearly as hot as Phoenix.

    Amazing, God will get you for complaining if things are to hot or to cold. After all is said and done I’ll never complain about heat again.

    Hot enough to be unbearable, just barely cool enough to last forever.

    Actually, people have a lot of misconceptions about Hell, fed largely by two works, "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God," and Dante's "Inferno."

    Biblicly speaking, the word "hell" originates from the Jewish word "sheoul," a deep crevasse used as a garbage pit outside the city walls of Jerusalem. Sometimes, they'd burn garbage, there, hence references to "fire," including "lake of burning fire," "furnaces of fire," and unquenchable fire." where there will be gnashing of teeth."

    During winter, sheoul received no sunlight, so it got pretty cold, too, including freezing, hence references to the "frozen lack."

    Brimstone is sulfur. We all know that. But did you know brimstone is what accumulates around the brim of volcanic vents as the sulfuric acid laden gases condense sulfur in the cooler air around the brim? Brimstone. Hence reference to the "lake of burning sulfur."

    The Biblical Hell?

    Well, it gets a lot deeper than all of this: https://www.biblestudytools.com/dictionary/sheol/

    I see the heat as a mixed blessing - it may be a bit uncomfortable in itself, but it sure does wonders for old bones, injuries, and such. Spent more than 50 years in the Inland Empire area of California; Arizona is much more comfortable for me.

    Summer sucks for me because I have to wear a suit in this mess. Sometimes I'm out in the heat for 2 hours or more. Couple that with a collared shirt that holds sweat against the neck, and you have misery. It takes several hours for a tshirt and dress shirt to dry out, meaning I have to endure discomfort pretty much the rest of the day. However, when I'm dressed appropriately for the heat and sweating, I like it hot. I'd rather do yardwork in 100 degrees than 80. A good sweat, with proper attire, is cleansing.

    As far as Hell goes, I'm sure the required attire will be a coat made of polar bear hide and fur.

    I’m from coastal Carolinas, both Wilmington & Myrtle Beach and lived in some inland towns while in school a long time ago. Yes it gets hot there however, I have never felt heat like Houston has in my life! Left MB in middle of 2016 and we went north of Greenbay WI and I loved it. I figure since God has a sense of humor he decided to take us from the coldest place I’ve ever been to the hottest place. It may get this hot in Africa I don’t know never been but this heat to me is incredible.

    You got Houston mixed up with somewhere else, nothing dry about this heat you will get soaked in minutes the humidity is so high. Everything in Texas is bigger, including the mosquitoes
