That is freaking hot! Where I live in Canada, summers are short. This year we've had a lot of days in the mid to high 80's. And humid. I'm not built for that type of weather!

I'm not joking when I say this. If it's in the high 80's here, someone has a jacket on and long pants...

not interested - just sayin - we are generally in wet heat here but not this year - i love the 70s-80s with low humidity , i can live in that all year long - just not some where it happens often enough , but i got it now - soaking it up and life is good , for now , could all change tomorrow , the weather here in MN changes day-to-day and hour-to-hour , you learn to enjoy it all .....or move -but thats not an option these days  , 

i love the green - not the mowing , i love the water , and we got lots of that , now to get my boat in that ...........yup , need some free time

I live in the Near North of Canada.

I live off the grid and heat with just a wood stove.

I froze my ass off this last winter. The winter was brutal and I ran low on wood. One morning I was out there chopping wood at -35c. However, the scenery was absolutely spectacular with the trees glazed with ice and everything twinkling in the sun, looked like Narnia. That day I made a vow to myself, no matter how hot and humid it got in the summer, there would be not one snivel or whine from me.

Yes, this time of year it is hot and humid, and I am sweating my bag off, no AC at my house. I love it! No complaints as only too soon, it will be below zero again.

Come on down to South Louisiana !!!!  it gets in the upper 90s to low 100s with high humidity !!! right now we have not seen a good rain... Im wondering if this is going to be a repeat of what we had about 15 years ago, when I bought this place, we would get high water in and around March, April and possibly May,  crawfish season !!  the water normally would come up a little over halfway in my back pasture , so I would set out my crawfish traps in a horseshoe pattern all the way to the pipe line and back.... on the normal years I would just fish the pipe line since the normal high for the water in that time of year was just about 100 to 150 feet into the wood line ( wood Line was about 100 yards from my back door)  a couple of years we got an El Nineo or was it El Nina ....  cant remember which one it was... One produces very wet weather for us and the other produces very dry weather....  well the couple of years it was dry , I could walk all the way to my back side of my property and then on to the next and up to the tram on the next property in sneakers !!!! most of the time I need hip boots !!!  this year is starting to look like one of them dry years we had back then....  I actually was able to cut some of the pipe line with the bush hog and go as far as about 100 yards into the woods past it to my neighbors deer stand and cut the weeds around his stand ...Looks like I get to hunt from it this coming season .....LOL!!!!
I did not chance going south down the pipe line to my tripod stand , the boys did on their 4 wheelers, but then they are way lighter than my tractor and bush hog .....
So for the last couple of days, son in Law and I have been putting off brewing beer due to the heat!! Well he has, and when we get to hot drinking beer we go into our fermenting room at the brew house, its around 68 to 70 *F   all the time ...
Son in Law has 2 5gal. kegs waiting to be tapped and one on tap right now , Im on my last one and 5gal. fermenting at the moment !! so I need to brew soon or im going to have to drink store bought !!!!
As for the heat down here, when I got back from cutting the pipeline yesterday, I was soaked from sweat !!!   and I was only driving the tractor !!!!!!

I lived in Edmonton AB for two years (moving from the warm climate of South East Ontario).  They told me before I left "don't worry, it's a dry cold".  The coldest day the first year was about 40 below zero and the neighbours said:  "this is the coldest it's been here in 20 years".  The following year it went to 56 below; then they told me "this is the coldest it's been here in 20 years".  OK, you guys live in denial.  I then moved south.

I've lived in Phoenix for 48 years,spent a year in Wyoming and a year in Iowa. Can't seem to find a reason to leave what I've always known and love.
The heat has never bothered me. Arizona has the most diversified climate zones of any other state. It's my home...

Looks like a guy could melt a cast iron frying pan left in the direct sun in Yuma.
