1. It was only 88 here today with high humidity

and that made me want to do a non-stop ice bucket challenge.

2. I would love having 88 degree weather even with high humidity

My husband and I went to vote (early voting for primaries) and to pick up a few groceries. Breathing feels like sucking in warm steam. My lungs don't like it at all.

On the way home I was wheezing and then while laughing at "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" I coughed so much I thought I was going to pass out. I guess I need to go back to the doctor - my asthma and allergy medications are not helping with my breathing problems. I'm out of shape and need to exercise but I can't exercise if I can't breath!

5. Right now it is 87 degrees here in North Georgia,

according to my outdoor thermometer. The humidity is only 48%, which is quite good. I was able to walk my dog without breaking into a sweat. Try living in South Florida with your asthma and allergies, where I spent most of my life until moving here to Georgia, and the temperature is usually in the 80s and 90s and the humidity level is in the 90s to 100.

4. We've actually been pretty well off this summer

Normal Florida high temperatures and humidity. Not as wet as last year when it rained almost every day, but enough rain that the grass and plants haven't been too stressed until the high temperatures for the last several days.

I'm just less physically tolerant of extremes as I used to be. I grew up with no AC and unheated bedrooms and could handle the heat and cold. Now it triggers problems like wheezing and bad cold reactions. Getting old sucks.

6. i remember the no AC days

and frankly don't know how i survived! temps have been pretty moderate here in the Atlanta area... lower than average but not as cool and wet as last summer... it has been pretty easy on the AC bills so that's awesome...

7. Where I grew up we had rainstorms every afternoon

I grew up in Central Florida, right in the middle of the state. During the summer thunderstorms would form up along the west coast, move eastward and get to us mid-afternoon about 3-4 PM just in time to cool things off. It made life bearable!

The humidity didn't bother us because we were used to it. In fact, we'd complain about going places with AC because it was always too cold and dry. I seldom spent time in AC until I went to college.

Here in Tallahassee, the summers tend to be hotter and thunderstorms are not as predictable, never were even when I first moved here in 1972. Most of the time since I moved here I have lived with AC. I think it's ruined me, LOL!

10. Grew up in south Alabama...

we got rain sometimes but there were no guarantees... sometimes we'd go to bed and it would still be near 90F outside. we had a whole house attic fan that pulled in a breeze... but sometimes it didn't seem to help

12. Fortunately, here in SW Ala., we have some cloud cover today,

which increases the humidity but lowers the temps a bit.

I picked some of my peppers a bit ago, they were HOT to the touch.
The cherry tomatoes just cooked on the vine.

The summer of 2006 it hit 90 in May and stayed in the 90's till fall. Cooked the humidity out of the air.
As hot as it is this weekend, we have had low 90's and even dipped into high 80's most of the summer.

8. It's been kind of hot here in Fort Lauderdale...

and very humid. Not too much rain though. We'll see what that tropical disturbance brings us this week.

9. The advantage you have there on the coast is off shore breezes

That keep the air moving. Here, on most hot days unless there is a thunderstorm with downdrafts the air just sits and the sun bakes the land and you.

Some years here we've wished for a tropical storm to bring us rain. Tallahassee is usually much drier than it is downstate, though the last decade or so that has shifted some.

11. and here in NYC today -

I think it's about 10 degrees below normal. High of around 72. I haven't had to run the a/c for WEEKS. Not saying this to complain or to annoy anyone - it's just that this summer is weird, at least around here.

Edit: It IS crazy to have a heat advisory for the BEACH, but I recall going to the NJ shore (a/k/a beach everywhere else) once to "cool off" and it was hotter there than inland.
