This has been one of the more miserable summers we have had in quite some time. High temps (over 90) and high dew points (over 73 degrees) with little to no wind makes it tough. We havent even seen to catch those little breaks where we cool off into the lower 80s for a couple days. Last Friday was absolutely miserable. Had to change clothes COMPLETELY 3 times as I was soaked through from sweat. I can only handle wearing sweat soaked clothes for so long. My wife was helping that day and she said that she didnt recall ever seeing her forearms sweat before LOL!

Pawnee mentioned 1980. This summer does not even come close to how hot it was then. There were lots of nights the temperature was well over 100° Fahrenheit at 1 AM. There were no crops raised that year. Even the prairie hay only made about 50% of normal. I don't recall getting any measurable rain after June 1st. I think it finally rained a little in late September. I don't recall anyone mentioning the world ending. The old timers then talked about how much worse it was in the "dirty thirties".

I believe it was 30 some odd days of 100 plus temperatures here. From what I've heard, Mt. Saint Helens had a lot to do with those temps.

I get your point, so lets be honest, high heat is worse than very cold.

Both can kill, but there is very little one can do in the high heat while one can do all sorts of stuff in the very cold and still be very comfortable.

Water is the source of life. If you live in area with high heat and very dry you live in one of the worst areas that you can live in the lower 48.

Actually wearing light color very loose garments will keep you cooler than no clothes at all. Wide brim hats provide shade as well. Loose fitting clothes also keep you warmer in winter as well. When it is hot the loose light color clothing reflects the sun and hte air trapped next to your body say 99 degrees is probably cooler then the 100 or so outside. In winter the air traps the 99 degree heat which is warmer than whatever the cooler temps are.

72 degrees with fluffy clouds and no humidity is about right for summer highs. Anything above 80 is too hot for me.

Our low temperatures for the last 10 days or so have been above 80. I don't mind the high daytime temps, but I really don't like that it never gets cool at night.
