    How many of you are sick of this heat? Fortunately, the humidity is low but I hate this mid 80 to low 90 degree weather. For the last 25 years I overheat if it’s above 65. Over the years I’ve been to the doctor numerous times to see if I have a hormone issue. My blood work always comes back normal. Then the doctor has a good laugh and says, “well obviously, your ancestors came from the highlands of Europe”. Bring on the frost.

    I’ve been coming home from work then going on clean up detail for an hr or 2 every night lately. Glad I’m not doing it full time.
    Tornado went overhead last Friday and messed some things up.

    LOL, I'm from South Georgia. You boys don't know what hot is, I promise.

    @capper knows, he lives there now...

    Three of my grandparents come from the Mediterranean region. Bring on the heat.

    Suffered heat exhaustion once almost 30 years ago.

    I do not want to know what hot is.

    Would not mind at all wearing a sweat shirt all summer.

    I'd be happy if it never got above 50 degrees.

    I have a friend originally from Cape Town South Africa. Monday it was 85 when he sent me a text and said “5 more degrees and he will be comfortable”. Tuesday it was 91 and he said “finally comfortable today”.

    In the fall when we are steelhead fishing I’m wearing a light sweatshirt and he is bundled up like an Eskimo. He shows up wearing a heavy jacket, gloves, and a stocking cap.

    Basic, infantry, airborne and then Ranger school starting in June at Benning was the hottest I've even been. I was proud of the Yankees that sucked it up and made it through the process. It was tough on them.

    Then, when many of us went to Germany that winter and we were sleeping in the snow with no tents, they were laughing at me!!!

    A guy asked at work if I would prefer 20 below.
    I said no, but I would think about zero.

    Wife is up in the,air conditioned cottage selling holiday weekend firewood hand over fist over jet sled over truck load.

    Cut, dragged out and split half a cord last night. Four shirts and a gallon of water later I went on EBay and spent most of what I'd earned before she ever sees it. Who needs four magnum mongoose stingers? I do.

    Hydration is your friend. If you're not peeing every couple of hours, drink more water!!!!

    I don’t mind heat to a certain point, although it could stay in the upper 60’s, low 70’s if I could customize the weather!
    What I hate is HUMIDITY.
    I’d rather have a 90 degree day with low humidity, than a 70 degree day with humidity.
