    I find dry heat to be very tolerable but this humid shit we get in the SEC kills me. I always hear people from Arizona complaining about heat but I would take their heat anyday of the week compared to this shit :cool:

    Keep in mind, the temps that are shown on the news for us, are in the shade. So......120* IN THE SHADE sucks ass. Ive taken temps of our cars, and shit outside, and seen 165* and more during the summer time, on a regular basis. Ive been to TX, and Fl during "Heat Waves", and thought it was pretty nice. Do you sweat? Yup, but its still cooler.

    Actually my ac doesnt work in the humidity b/c many ac's cant pull moisture out of the air. Dry heat all you need is shade.

    I guess it is preference b/c I have been in Arizona when it was 114 and I was not uncomfortable at all in the shade. Prolonged sun exposure was a bit much but still preferable to say SW Ga in august.

    I think its pertty interesting how different folks acclimate to different "hot" environments. Like I mentioned, I dont mind the humidity, and see many that dont mind the dry. I think the reason I prefer the humidity, is, as you obviously sweat, you know to drink more fluids. Out here, I find myself dry most all day, and am always in some state of dehydration because of it.
