That's hot

    Heat index in my neck of the woods (DC area) should hit 110 degrees today, possibly 115 tomorrow, with humidity hovering between 60-70 percent. I read somewhere that in parts of the Midwest the LOW overnight temperatures haven't been dipping below 90.

    What's it like where you are?

    Actually cooled off to the high 80s the last few days after about a month of 90-plus.

    I was at a Texas Rangers game two weeks ago where the temperature at first pitch was 105 ... at 7:05 p.m.

    At 11 last night in DC, the heat index was 95. At 11 at night. 95. The inventor of air conditioning is my favorite person ever.

    DuPont created freon, so direct your thank-you cards their way.

    I kind of think the "heat index" and the "wind chill factor" are bs.

    It's always humid when it's hot -- at least where I live -- and it's always windy when it's cold.

    So, 100 always feels the same and so does 10.

    Barely made it to 100º in DFW yesterday. That's 20 days in a row, which is unusual, but still pretty much par for the course for us — the average high for this date is 97º, so we've been lucky here. We haven't gotten nearly the humidity the Midwest has, which makes it dangerous.

    I thought this too until I moved to California. I can handle 100 degrees out here no problem. I go see family in Texas, and if it's 90 degrees I'm begging for mercy (or at least AC) after 15 minutes outside.

    You and Rush.

    Cleveland is forecasting its hottest day in 16 years. 97 degrees is the projected high (which would match the 1952 record), with the heat index projected between 105-115.

    Yeah, I've spent some time in Phoenix, so a dry heat is different.

    I guess it's when the local media hypes a heat index of 105, or whatever.

    They tell us it feels like 105. Well, no, because if it was 105, it would feel even hotter.

    To be honest I've never gotten beyond the "FUCK IT'S HOT" scale of heat index or the "JESUS CHRIST WHY WOULD ANYONE LIVE IN THIS" scale of wind chill.

    I agree, when it gets to a certain point, hot is just plain hot.
