    I should start gardening "wild craft" plants and weeds. they can handle pretty much all the weather that gets thrown at them without any help. Odd that we choose to sustain ourselves on such unhardy plants isn't it?

    I honestly don't know how you people do it. I guess we are an adaptable species if nothing else.

    111 degrees is the upper limit of my tolerance, personally. One day, I think it was last week, I stepped outside about 4 p.m. and I knew instantly that it was 112. As long as I'm not outside trying to work, 111 feels good to me - sort of like standing a little too close to a large bonfire; the heat just sort of bakes you through, and I find it invigorating. One degree hotter and I tend to just want to turn around and go back inside.

    We are finally in the upper 80s + heat index- but it is not as hot as the last few Junes. And the first half of June was cool.

    The thing I liked about Phoenix was the heat was dry heat, no humidity.
    Here in Maryland it's been pretty nice but the humidity is back for the summer.
    Last year Maryland had measurable rain every 3 days.
    The old record from the 1800's of 40 some inches per year went up to 70+ inches.
    The topsoil was 80% saturated. It was awful.
    This year has been much better.
    Apparently the rain is falling elsewhere.

    Quit whatever it is your currently doing and get a job at a TV station as a Human Thermometer. If you're any good, the station would instantly increase viewers by 50%, and you could become syndicated and filthy, stinking rich.

    The hottest temperature I have ever experienced was 115 degrees in Phoenix. For about 15 seconds.
    The only way to stop democrats' insane drive to impeach Trump and all their other illicit shenanigan is to force them to pay for it all out of their own pockets when they lose.

    You'd have to hit 100% of the time, of course. Otherwise, anyone could do your job.

    I recall that some years back - I think it was in the mid- to late-'90s - we had temps at, near or above 120 every day for about a week. They had to close Sky Harbor because the runways were melting.

    I think the worst heat-humidity combo I ever experienced was when I was living in the L.A. suburbs in the late '80s, and it got up to 108 degrees. I'd been in worse humidity, like in Memphis and Orlando, but never with that kind of temperature. Air conditioners were going out all over the city, mine included, and people who had to be outside were walking around looking like some kind of disaster survivors. I checked my two cats into a luxury boarding facility in Garden Grove for the duration and wished I could have stayed there myself.
