Not! I just looked at my local Weather Underground display and it's 95.6°, humidity @ 54%, and a heat index of 104°. Shocked

Ok, I know you guys out there in AZ and other arid climes are probably LYAO at us, but here in the South the humidity just kills you. It's just a matter of 15 minutes before you're soaking wet right down to the skivvies. It makes you really want to be somewhere's else.

I'll trade ya the -19°F temperature with wind chill of -40°F we had this past winter!Razz

We're getting a cold front tonight / tomorrow and forecast to maybe hit 70°F for high temps the next few days. Shocked

We had an overnight low of 43°F when I was up throwing sticks for my most recent pork butt cook on 6/29.

Growing up along the South Texas Gulf Coast, I thought I knew about humidity and heat index - but we almost always had a stiff breeze (higher average annual wind speed than Chicago).

Then worked a while in Southeast Texas bayou country. Not nearly as breezy.

Then I worked in Southeast Louisiana. That really taught me about atmosphere you can almost swim through.

Yeah, I've been to Houston and it would about take your breath away. I guess given the choice I'll take this muck vs. the deep Winter. At least the ladies are scantily clad in these temps. Cool Shocked Laughing



Well the temp and heat index just jumped. Holy crap I'm going to go crawl into the deep freezer.

There's supposed to be a cold front coming through tomorrow that's going to drop the temps to the low 80's, with low humidity, for a couple of days. Sounds good to me!

Except for the extra-large 'Ladies' that need to put some damn clothes back on Shocked Laughing . If you're 400 pounds, I don't want to see you in a bikini top and shorty-shorts that say 'Baby Doll' on them Laughing Laughing

Hilarious! But she's missing a tramp stamp . . .

When I was in my final semester of my senior year in high school in Corpus Christi, the administration banned girls from wearing halter tops and ultra-short shorts any more because "It's too distracting to the classroom environment."

it was a great ride while it lasted.

I took tennis for my PE requirement. In inclement weather, we played volleyball on the side of the gym opposite from where the girl's gymnastics team was practicing.

Very distracting!
