    Don't count on it Norton. It was a muggy humid 94°F yesterday and as I type this at 6:50am it is currently 77°F. It never went lower than that overnight.

    Maybe we'll shoot you some cool air in September.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    It was at 98f here at 10 this morning. I have no ideal what it got up to as I hibernated in the house today. But they are saying it will be bad again tomorrow but is suppose to get quiet cooler beginning Monday. Calling for low 80's which would be a big relief. Hopefully it will start the cool down time now. It is close to that time now. We should hang in the 70's to low 80's till Sept., then the temps will drop like a rock. :toast:

    Yes, The prairies and Alberta do get cooler nights than here in southwestern Ontario. We are, however, further south than anywhere else in Canada. Only a 1 hour drive due west to Port huron, MI and 90 minutesd drive due southwest to Detroit.

    Man it's been a while since I've seen heat that high here in Canada and you folk get it regularly. We hit a high of 88 today but yesterday we hit 95. Which isn't too bad in my room with my A/C but the rest of my place can go way over 110-120F as I live in the upper part of a house. You can see the roof angles on my ceiling. The attic only spans 40 or 50 % of my place. :(

    Not sure where you live but where I am we can have heatwaves well into August and in mid September of 2005 we had one that lasted 3 days with temps over 86F. But generally in September it definitely starts to cool off.

    Dry heat is way better than humid heat for sure. where I am, 86 can feel like 106 - sweat does not evaporate like it should making the human body's cooling system less effective.

    :rockout:

    All said and done about this summer (and I love the heat) I can't wait for fall because I only like the heat outside and nowhere near my rigs!!! :)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I live in the valley of 2 mountain ranges in VA. So when the cooler air hits it stays. And it can get cold. :rockout:







    They where calling for it to hit 100f today with a heat index of 113f.


    But there are people out there that have it worse I am sure.

    Yes, tree canopies with forests all araound can keep a town/village real cool.

    when I lived in Montreal we had a heatwave one time and the low temp over night was only supposed to hit 77F (25C) so me and my buddy decided to cycle into the Laurentian Mountains for a camping trip. We left around midnight. By 1 am in the morning we had to take a break at a Harvey's restaurant in St. Jerome because the temperature was only
    56F/13C! We could see our damn breath for crying out loud and we were only wearing shorts! This was in July!!! :eek: :laugh:

    That's how it gets here. Warm to hot during the day and cold at night. Only exception is during the heatwaves. It will got down in the lower 70's at night. We useley cut the a/c off at nights.

    Yes, when I used to race road bicylcles (tour de France style) I remember doing long endurance training rides (150--200kms) and on the way back to the city as the sun was setting when ever the team rode by a forest, you could feel the cold air rolling out of it onto the raod. It was such a relief after baking for 4-5 hours during a long ride. :)

    I'm confused as to why I'm not making the Milestones list, at least! I passed 11,000 then 12,000 yesterday! No milestones for the little people anymore? :confused:

    Edit: OK, so they haven't updated the points that my BOINC manager says I have but, I still should have had one for 11, 000, no?

    The higher you go Arjai, the more spaced out they get. My last milestone was in April :(
