Heat Wave

As someone who has lived in the deep south (Alabama, Mississippi and Florida) his whole life, I'm having trouble with news reports wherein people residing in the NE part of the United States sound like they are literally dying when a microphone is put in front of their mouth because it is 98-100 degrees with high humidity.

This is what we down here call a normal summer.

Can someone explain what I'm missing?

It's a lot like when those of us up here in the NE hear about folks down south freaking out when they get a snow flurry, and sell the local market out of canned goods and water. When it reaches 2+ feet is when you can start thinking about worrying.

Oh, ok. So just like we don't have snow clearing equipment (so can't get to the stores) You guys don't have air conditioning? That makes sense then.

*Confirmed with my gf (who is from Plum Island, Mass.) that indeed her parents do not have air conditioning. However, most businesses do. Does this mean people will be working overtime this week in the NE?

Re: Heat Wave

In the north, we're used to 70-85 degree summers. So when it gets to 95 degrees+, then it's much too hot.

My tourney record: 14-32 or 30.43% wins

IE, people always freak out when they encounter things they are not used to.

Now through May 28th, the Louisville region is in desperate need of platelets - call the Red Cross if you are interested in donating!

You mean you do - not everyone up north has it, at least nothing like people in the south have it.

Yes, most people I know have it though. Most businesses do too, I think.

Re: Heat Wave

In Florida and other lower states, its hot 80% of the year. You've become acclimated to the heat.

Here in Maryland, and other Atlantic states, its hot 3 months of the year, its freezing 3 months of the year, and the other 6 months is like spinning a wheel and seeing what you get. We can acclimate to nothing.

72 tournaments. 173 - 142 - 1 overall record. 6 tournament wins.

My goal, play every official 'scape unit in a tournament at least once. 149 down, 55 to go!

I do have an AC, but I can't hang out in my bedroom all day. Comfortable to sleep, not so much for the rest of the day. It's actually a good excuse to hide in the basement where it's cooler and it just so happens the game room is down there as well.

Re: Heat Wave

It's bitterly cold here from late November to March, random from April to May, hot (95 degrees, maybe) from June to middle September, and crisp and cool from late September to early November.

And yes, my family has AC.

Re: Heat Wave

It's hot in the summer down here, and cold in the winter. We get both extremes.
