OT: How hot is it where you live?

In Columbia,SC,USA we just hit a all time record of 108 degrees Fahrenheit!
With our customary 90-95% humidity we have a heat index of 120 degrees. What
about where you are?

Right now in NY? 55F. It's that damn Canada that causes it. If Mexico were up there instead of Canada, it would be warm now. :-)

fairly cool summer here. we hit about 105 today, not at all like a hot summer day. really hot is over 115 and we've only had 4 of those instead of weeks at a time. with 20% or less humidity, it's like your 85. nights are cold! had to use a sheet last night! bbbrrrr.

Low 80's with no humidity, a typical Colorado Springs day (:>

It's unusually cool for August in the Mojave...only 101 currently. But we're supposed to get back to more normal temps through next week...

We have had spells where it hit the 90's for a few days and then retreated, thankfully. Today is mid-70's here in Bremerton, WA on the beautiful Kitsap Peninsula. Along with PaPa, I very strongly dis-like anything higher than 70's- I hated living in middle Tenn. back almost 20 years ago; could not wait to get back to the West Coast!

I did a music video with the Coors over in Trona - if you've ever seen the video for the song "Breathless", I'm one of the bikers in it...
Us bikers (well, me anyway...) spent the whole day hanging out and walking around in full (black) leathers...was probably in the triple digits, and bright sunshine. The Corrs sisters spent the whole day walking around in...er..."limited" attire. It wasn't until much afterward that I heard that they all ended up in the local hospital that night being treated for dehydration and exhaustion.
...meanwhile, us bikers headed to the bar for a cold one. None the worse for it all.

send me a copy? or come riding, already. it's amazing how much acclimation counts and that it can last. when i was young i lived in the low desert type country overseas. it took me a couple of months to adapt and i've never been bothered by heat since. new englanders would be dropping dead in 90+ degrees and i would be outside playing, 30 years later when i moved back desrtward, i was still acclimated. weird, huh? i would love to scratch build that trackless borax steam train at furnace creek. can you imagine operating a steam engine going 5 mph in 125 degree heat? must have been some tough guys.

: : In Columbia,SC,USA we just hit a all time record of 108 degrees Fahrenheit! : Yeah, not too unusual for Dallas in August. : : With our customary 90-95% humidity we have a heat index of 120 degrees. What : about where you are? : In Austin, I am not sure we have cracked 100 yet this year. Friday it was 96 or so. Dewpoint in the lower 70's. Fairly typical for late June/early July weather.

Yup. I noticed how out of it I'd become when I moved back after spending a year living at sea level in Kingsville, TX. Had no problem with the gulf coast heat, but when I got back to the high desert I could feel how non-acclimated to the altitude I had become. Since I don't ski anymore, I don't think I've ever really re-acclimated to the elevation.
I never got a copy of the video myself, but if you find a run of the original cut, you'll spot my red and black '98 Glide in the opening parade shots - then, in the shot where everyone is walking out from under the wings of the DC-3, I'm on the right end of the line, wearing my rag, glasses, vest, and chaps. Some of the locals have actually recognized me...or my bike, anyway.
...I'm also one of the prisoners on the chain gang in the opening of "Happy, Texas".

Do you want the temperature taken inside or outside of the fires?
Western Montana has broken jjust about every record this summer.
Most days over 100* = 11
Most days over 90*
= 41 (With more to come this week!)
Hardly any rain to speak of since back in early June.
On the 6th of July we hit 108* here! Walking across the lawn was like crushing glass...........
And now we have the fires! With everything tinder dry, this is going to be a rough year. Right now we have 11 sizeable fires burning....... with one just to the East of me now at around 18,000 acres burned.
Gonna move to Vegas where it's cooler!!
