Re: Heat Wave

It's in the 90s where I live for a lot of the summer. And then in the winter we get plenty of snow. I don't mind either, really, other than standing at the bustop in 10 degree cold is more than a little annoying.

It's about what you're used to your whole life. When it changes to something we're not acclimated to, we tend to get uncomfortable.

I think that's about it.

Re: Heat Wave

I lived in GA for most of my life and now live in the mountains of NW MD- very different summers.

Here, I don't have AC and most people I know don't either. My church didn't have it until a couple of years ago.

Here we have basically 2 seasons- winter and July

Although, like most of the NE we are in the 80's and 90's now.

Re: Heat Wave

Here in NYC it was about 103 today. I do have AC, though it barely manages against this kind of heat (I can always get a third unit ).

It does make one want to stay indoors.

Depends on if it's dry heat or humidity laden heat. Dry heat ain't too bad, but if it's hot with humidity...

Unfortunately, we get the latter down here.

Re: Heat Wave

Cleveland has been set ablaze in the last few days. Good thing I love the heat.

The main reason why people don't understand how weather affects people is because everywhere is different. A friend of mine back in Middle School was straight from Nigeria and in the late fall, he was freezing. Your used to one type of weather, another person might not be.

Re: Heat Wave

I grew up about half an hour north of Tampa... and we didn't have A/C. Now I live right on Lake Erie and yep... we have A/C. The neighborhood we live in has houses that are anywhere as new as 5 years old to some that are about 100 years old. In general, the ones built before 1960 have radiator heating and no central air. Tat's about half the houses.

We've had the a/c on for the last few days, but typically we run it less than 10 days a year.

Never trust kids when they ask "Hey dad, can I borrow the car???"

Woohoo for Lake Erie! I've always lived near Tina's(right off the lake) and I have simply loved going swimming!!

Edit: I don't think the school have radiator heating but I could be wrong about that.

Re: Heat Wave

I grew up in south Alabama (aka the surface of the sun - with humidity!), but moved to Michigan about 15 years ago. I am now one of those wimpy Northerners (I can't call myself a Yankee) who is hating the 90+ temperatures we've had lately. I'll gladly hide inside my air conditioned house and wait until winter - bring on the snow!

Seriouslly, I do dislike the extreme heat, but I can take it for a while. The weather here in Michigan has the widest variations of anywhere I've lived. Its hot now, but I wouldn't be surprised if we're having highs in the 70's next week.

My grandma grew up in New Hampshire and doesn't mind going in 50 or 60 degree water one bit. On the other hand, she hates really warm water like in Florida or something. Most other people are probably the exact opposite (I know I am).

In the north up here we are used to a really temperate climate, but we don't really get the "extremes." In Connecticut we almost never get more than 1 foot of snow at a time, and it hardly ever gets above 90 degrees. Down in the south you only get one extreme (the extremely hot), whereas further north you only ever get the opposite extreme (massive amounts of snow/freezing cold). If a person is used to one then the other is really hard.
