Re: [F@H] Summertime Temps...
After living in TX, and NM, and CA, and AZ (and TN) I am enjoying the milder clime here in CT. Yes, this last winter was almost brutal, we had a really wicked storm that tormented me personally (some of you may recall, I was walking under the interstate, a plow went by overhead, and about 200 pounds of wet slush slammed right down on me). What an ordeal it was, taking the bus to and from work was nothing short of a nightmare, but honestly, I'll take it compared to 6 months of unbearable heat and feeling sick, with no air conditioning. In AZ I lived in a metal trailer with no cooling whatsoever for 1 and a half summers, down in the Sonora, I will never forget how the poor live there so long as I live after that, they have my unwavering compassion.
It reached 90 here I think once or twice so far, but it has been pretty mild so far, and I have AC in my bedroom, thank the good Lord.
When I lived in TX, in Houston, I made a living crawling in attics, and let me tell you, an attic in Houston at 95% humidity at 100 degrees in the shade (in the attic it is much more) is so bad I think it would kill me were I to try to do that same thing now at my current age.
While at college in Waco my AC went out during the summer while in classes for about a week. That was one miserable week, I couldn't sleep or concentrate and my grades suffered.
The eastern half of TX is so humid and hot people in the NE USA just can't comprehend. And there's been a drought there.
