I don't.  Not since I started riding my bicycle; I feel like if I can ride in the heat, I can drive in the heat.

NS is just trying to stir up trouble, as is his wont.

Do you drive like Ace Ventura with your head sticking out the window? Because if not, you're at least feeling the breeze when you ride a bike. I had my previous car for 15 years. I would have kept it for even longer but the AC died and I traded it in that very weekend. I can deal with lots of stuff but not having AC will never be one of them. Life's too shot to be that uncomfortable. Being in a hot humid environment with no relief makes me stabby (to loosely steal a quote from inkman, we've, or whomever I stole it from).

It's not normally this humid in Sabrevale Trailer Park, eh.

Another sticky one today, eh.

You’re welcome.

And I’m bot going to sit in a 100 degree car when the technology to cool it down is on the dashboard of every vehicle made.  That’s masochistic.

 

Then again, so is long distance bikes ng when there are perfectly serviceable air conditioned cars available for the trip.

It's all in getting acclimated to the heat.  It took a while but it doesn't bother near as much as it used to.  I will say this:  When I get to my house, that had better be cool.

I got home yesterday and saw the heat index was 109. I ride my bike to and from campus - I didn't even think about the temperature on the way. It's crazy how you can get used to it

Yep.

Plus if you ride regularly, you get some legs.... the rides don't bother you near as much.  I rode to the neighborhood association meeting last night.  Another guy rode, and he suggested we ride over to a bar and have a couple ginger ales.  Afterwards we were riding home and I just powered up the hills and had to wait for him.  He doesn't have the legs.

It's a great statement, because it gets the point across so succinctly. Hot and muggy weather irritates the hell out of me. I'm surprised there aren't more stabbings in places like Florida Mississippi, Louisiana, etc.

They’ve gone in NYC area in last 2-3 weeks based in ER stuff and local news... people get stupid and angry in the heat.

We had 111 yesterday, it was still 100 at 10 pm.

I think that when hell does eventually freeze over, it will start in Texas.

Yes you get hotter and colder in Dallasville than we do in Houston, although our humidity makes it unbearable

It rarely gets above 32 or below -5 here ( that’s 90 and 23 for you people who stubbornly refuse to adjust to the rest of the world.) and those are extremes, like they happen 4 or 5 times a year.

I'll take 85 all summer long and 25 all winter long. I do love my 60 degree fall days. And spring can be skipped entirely, just extend winter.

Cold front came through yesterday.  It's supposed to get up to only 98 today.

There is some flooding going on around SE PA in places I haven't seen it before. I too live on top of hill.
