Thing's are normal down here in Florida. Outside for about a half hour and feel like you're gonna pass out and you have swamp ass.

LOL! Moved my daughter to Miami Beach for her new job – then – moved her back three years later. Drove a sizeable truck down there in – late-JUNE! Oly chit the heat/humidity = swamp ass, pits, head, etc. plus moving furniture up a flight of stairs. And driving a large truck around there was a hoot. Took off a few sizeable tree limbs…and 15 bucks for a frozen margarita in a Dixie cup…no thanks hey.

Areas of the PNW are having a record, or near-record breaking cool and wet Spring. Would be happy to trade half of it away for some of your sunshine.

Yep, middle of June and i don't think it's broke 75 yet. Frost last night and supposed to be up to 68 this afternoon. It's gonna feel like a heat wave. It is really green though and the grass is about 4 feet tall from all the rain.

I remember many June's like that in Oregon.... Waiting and Waiting and Waiting for some nice spring weather ( never happens) and after the last 8 or 9 months of cold, rain and grey skies and you think June will finally bring some blue skies and warmth.... Not until the end of June usually if I remember my 57 years there.....

UPDATE: It's now after lunch, it's sunny and 75 with 40% humidity... oh, the humanity. Back to the gravel piles

Hit 100 right after noon today. Humidity is 51% which is low for us in North Florida.
We call it air you can wear around here. The worst part is it is yellow and horse fly season around here just to add to the already bad mosquito's from the rain last week. Florida is a real paradise sometimes !

Several 100 degree days. In the last 3, I clocked 100 on Saturday, 99 yesterday and it's 100 now. Time to crawl into the red neck pool for a bit.

Not far from you in Apalachicola, lived a man named Gorrie who is credited with being the father of refrigeration. I grew up in south Florida and didn’t have a/c until I was about 29 years old. Now I am spoiled and can’t be without it. I wonder how overpopulated Florida would be without a/c.

Love Apalachicola!
Fished out of there a lot.
I do know about John Gorrie inventing A/C to treat the yellow fever patients.
I graduated from Leon high school in Tallahassee in 1981 and it didn’t have A/C then.

So I woke up Sunday morning at a cool 42 degrees! Barely got into the 50’s all day! Been cool since! No heat here! I’d gladly take some away to help cool down!
