We got 100 now and who knows what it feels like.We are not going out! The door knob is to hot to touch. We not even think about pool.
The dogs rather hold it in an burst before they step out ( lucky us we got the Porch Potty)
I found a delievery food service (local restaurants) which we will try out.

100 degree temps are the norm for much of the summer here in Texas. Stay hydrated is always a good policy, use sun screen, wear a hat if you need, don't overdo things if you're feeling fatigued. I've got almost used to it over the last few years, though some afternoons it's insanely hot.

We really had not much hot days last 2 years in KY (very few)
The 3 years before in MI were nice (I do not well in heat) I love snow !
Before that we lived in NC which was hot and humid. I got sick a few times. The mosquitos were bad too.
Southern CA was OK. Arizona not so much in summer.

Now here in MD of course it has to be a heatwave ......
( I am counting myself so fortunate my power is back on ....there so many still without)
Even in air conditioned house I feel the effects and I do drink water.

Hope your power stays on and things cool off soon.

Right now in Surprise, Arizona it's about 112. It's dry heat so we don't really worry about Mosquitos. The hot sun does do some damage though if you're not used to it. We usually stay in the ac to keep cool though. It's in the 90's - 100's all the way through October here

I live in the deep South and can deal with the heat during the day...That's logical. However when I walk outside at 9pm and its still in the upper 80's with humidity making it feel like a sauna that's when I question my decision to live here!

It's 102 here, my station says 92. It's the humidity that really bothers me, in Sicily it's in the high 90s all summer long, but it's very dry so bearable if you stay shaded, plus we would go to the beach everyday. Whatta hell am I doing here!

I live in Florida and we are getting pleasant temps here. It's kinda weird seeing the northern regions getting higher temps than us.

I've been thinking the same thing! Kind of concerned for when August rolls around in our area.

Tried riding the motorcycle, but the winds around me are still very hot. I stay inside where there's AC.

Heh.. they've been the norm here even before I was born, dude. We've sort of gotten used to the heat that we find cold weathers odd and uncomfortable at times. I must say, though, summers here are pretty costly because of the air conditioner being on 24/7.

Drinking cold beer cools me down. When it's really hot, I drink loads of beer. It's the best way.

Well a heat wave up here is 90-95 degrees, so I love it! Was at the lake yesterday and I agree about the cold beer! :D

The suns a party-pooper. It makes my beer warm, thus not cooling me down enough.

But, if you drink it fast, when it's just come out of the fridge you still cool. Slightly.
