Keep a bottle of good tequila in the freezer. Might not make one smarter, but you feel like it.

My hub and I are seriously considering moving north.  And near to large bodies of water.  It’s the 3rd or 4th major drought since I’ve lived here.  Our ancestors would have migrated under these conditions.  It’s natural.

Well, finally ... an explanation for why we Canadians are smarter than you Americans. 

Where I am, it’s a lovely 24C (76F).

(And are you ever going to go metric?)

Pretty sure it’s got to be adjusted according to index though.

I can assure you that, for example, 113° at Ft. Irwin, CA can be a lot more comfortable than 85° in Ft. Benning, GA.

Thats the temp, the heat index is higher, as Central Texas does have humidity, unlike far West Texas. Right now its 24%.  Its a brutal heat wave.  But you are right, desert hot is better than coastal hot.

Ill be in Ontario and Quebec in less than a month. Cant wait to get cooler and smarter.

By the way, “Andrews Law” is in honor of our former admin, who said that the South’s heat and humidity is what made us meaner.

That’s great about your trip - I hope we have some nice weather for you.

Thanks for filling me in about the thread title; I wondered what that was about.

Colorado Springs has had a rough go of it.  You have to go pretty far north to beat the heat these days.

Yes, we’re thinking Oregon.  Of course, we can get cooler just heading up into the mountains, but I wouldn’t want to live through the long winters of the mountain towns.

We’ve been traveling a lot this summer, and it really is interesting to find pockets of milder weather in unexpected places.  NE Utah actually has some nice cool mountains, surrounded by desert, for example.  We usually camp when we do road trips, so we look for the oases.  Great Basin National Park in Nevada is another such place.

At the moment, (10:00PM local time) it’s 78, humidity is 95%, it rained earlier today.  Forecast for the next 15 days is upper 80’s and hitting 90 a couple of days.  Humidity will be about the same as today, rain chance is a steady 60% every day.  It’s central Florida in the summer time.  I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.

From my front porch, Tuesday the 17th.

We are hovering just under a hundred but I’m actually very comfortable. We prepped the house mid spring in anticipation.

I love heavy skies and rain and green.  That’s why I think I’d love Oregon.  People in my sunny state keep saying, “Won’t you miss the sun?”  I never did when I lived on the N California coast.  As a matter of fact, I spent the bright summers looking forward to winter.  Everyone is wired differently.
