If it’s hot enough to make me take note, then damn, it’s HOT! After all, I grew up in the South, and a typical summer day from June through mid-September was pretty much like Kansas City was today — hot and humid, temps around 100 degrees, heat index around 110. Reminds me of the good old days, when I was a poor college student without an air conditioner…

Don’t you just hate it when it is so hot your face feels like it could melt off. At least, that is what hot is like in Iraq. If I didn’t have AC I woulda quit a long time ago.

The suffocating feeling you get when the air is so hot and thick is what others me. And that strange blast-furnace moment that occurs when you open the door and step outside.
When my sweetie spent four months in Qatar doing his duty, I’d check his weather forecasts every day and compare it to mine. Ouch. He said that after that experience, he’d never complain about being hot again.

That’s exactly right. I see that at home it is 95 and I think “Wow, 20 degrees cooler than here.”
That is insane. However, we don’t have the humidity as much as in Iowa but we do have some as there is a river not too far away. No matter what, I hate the heat.
