    Try New orleans 96 100% humidity
    Are you there now? I went to school at Tulane some years ago... running in that city during the summer was hell! Even if I got up before the sun came out, the humidity was still unbearable. I would sweat so much I'd feel dizzy.

      Try New orleans 96 100% humidity

       

      Ya, it is totally the humidity that gets you. I track the dew point mostly these days, means more than the temp does.

       

      Or as a friend of mine says: it is not the heat so much as the stupidity.

        That reminds me of this old joke:

         

        Ole and Sven die in a snowmobiling accident, drunker than skunks, and go to Hell.

        The Devil observes that they are really enjoying themselves. He says to them 'Doesn't the heat and smoke bother you? Ole replies, 'Vell, ya know, ve're from nordern Minnesooota, da land of snow an ice, an ve're yust happy fer a chance ta varm up a little bit, ya know.'

        The devil decides that these two aren't miserable enough and turns up the heat even more.

        When he returns to the room of the two guys from Minnesota , the devil finds them in light jackets and hats, grilling Walleye and drinking beer.

        The devil is astonished and exclaims, 'Everyone down here is in abject misery, and you two seem to be enjoying yourselves?'

        Sven replies, 'Vell, ya know, ve don't git too much varm veather up dere at da Falls, so ve've yust got ta haff a fish fry vhen da veather's dis nice.'

        The devil is absolutely furious. He can hardly see straight Finally he comes up with the answer.

        The two guys love the heat because they have been cold all their lives. The devil decides to turn all the heat off in Hell. The next morning, the temperature is 60 below zero, icicles are hanging everywhere, and people are shivering so bad that they are unable to wail, moan or gnash their teeth.

        The devil smiles and heads for the room with Ole and Sven. He gets there and finds them back in their parkas, bomber hats, and mittens. They are jumping up and down, cheering, yelling and screaming like mad men.

        The devil is dumbfounded, 'I don't understand, when I turn up the heat you're happy. Now its freezing cold and you're still happy. What is wrong with you two?'

        They both look at the devil in surprise and say 'Vell, don't ya know, if hell iss froze over, dat must mean da Vikings von da Super Bow!'

          Zombie thread, but a very appropriately-timed resurrection.  Just nuts down here in Texas lately.  It is, at least, dry, but 100+ is dangerous with any level of humidity.

           

          Going to hold off on my tempo run until about 7:30, when it's supposed to "cool down" to 95.

            Right now it is 95F in my room and 32% humidity.  Outside it was 103' last I checked.  Glad today is my rest day, YUCK

              Felt like I went for a run in a sauna tonight. With the humidity felt like almost 100 F. Crazy for this late in the summer. Did 4 miles, and then gave up and headed home for a cold beer....

                    Janie, today I quit my job. And then I told my boss to go f*** himself, and then I blackmailed him for almost sixty thousand dollars. Pass the asparagus.
