thats not that hot.. we had 46C this year.. which is about 115F.. we had an average for a few days, for the entire country that was about 43C/110F.. and our country(australia) is as big as the USA..

we have 23C/73F tomorrow and the next day, and its the middle of winter.. people are walking around in singlets and shorts..
but you have to add the humidity and the high dew point we have ..ya can't go outside..ya can't breathe..i have my ac and two dehumidifiers running to make it comfy in here

i didnt mention the humidity.. its always really, really bad here.. horrid..

i grew up for a few years in the tropics, which is probably like Florida, and what you are having weather wise is what it was like everyday and night.. it never lets up.. even in winter its that hot and humid..

Here in Massachusetts we regularly experience and suffer through a wide separation of temperature extremes...

The hottest temperature ever recorded here is 107 degrees august 2nd 1975...

The coldest temperature ever recorded here is 35 degrees below zero january 1st 1981...

Thats a temperature swing diffrence of 142 degrees...

Which makes it virtually impossible for most people to get use to any kind of seasonal climate around here because as soon we start to adjust and adapt to whatever it happens to be outside it quickly changes again and again and again...

Although the changing seasons are actually usually nice to have because I wouldnt want to be hot all the time and i wouldnt want to be cold all the time either...

Which is worse?

The frozen hell of a vicious windswept blizzard!
