I never dreamed I'd see the day when I'd consider 100 degrees Fahrenheit "cooler weather".

after the few days we had that were over 100 this summer, I was very happy to have things only be 90. I can't imagine what it's like to be in the 100's for weeks at a time...

The advantage of it being over 100 for months on end is that, believe it or not, you get used to it. It's not as if it's a fluke.

Plz, you are always welcome to package some of it (in a bottle???) and send it to TO. I am not having a good autumn ::stares at misery-inducing fingers:: what with rain and stuff (case in point: WTF am I doing up at 5:16 on a Saturday morning).

I have sympathy: cool and damp is my knee's worst enemy. We're thinking about New Mexico or Arizona as other states in which to live. (New Mexico gets cold, but it's a dry cold.)

New Mexico FTW! I loved living in Las Cruces. Which I have probably said every time New Mexico has come up. ^_^;

I was just going to say that I have flist living in Los Cruces (and I believe it's a darn sight more fun and tolerant than Arizona).

Steve's father lived in Las Cruces for years, but I don't know about it being more tolerant that Arizona (which I have been to and like). I mean the nearest real city is El Paso (shudder) I'd be more interested in Santa Fe or Taos.

Current temperature in Kuwait City is 82 degrees (it's 8:30 a.m.). I was walking from the DFAC thinking, "It's nice, cool and fresh this morning."

Seriously, you really do acclimate. 120 is never comfortable but it becomes bearable (and the season for 120 is behind me and I leave before it returns).

I discovered it's actually hotter in Kuwait than in Iraq. In the morning, it's 86 degrees or so in Kuwait while in Iraq it's only 45.

YEP

I remember stepping off the plane from Ali Al Salem to Iraq in August and being like "THANK GOD it's cooler here!"

Plus this August we were treated to OMG HUMIDITY. I've never had my glasses steam up before when I went outside.
