SurvivorGirl, here's the formula for conversion.

Yep, it was 90 and about 75% humidity here today, too. Ugh! It seems every year I have more and more trouble adjusting to the heat, especially the humidity. I finally convinced DH to turn the AC on. He claimed staying cool was all a frame of mind!

Looks like we're in for some more of the same here the next couple days. And to make matters worse there's only a slight chance of thunder showers. It's too early in the year for this!

It's laisez-faire, I don't even give a care.
Let's make Friday part of the weekend and give every new baby a chocolate eclair.

PABaker I have always said being warm is a state of mind it is so much easier to get warm when cold just throw on a sweater and so forth getting cool is alot harder.It also depends on the person as DH says you are either warm or cool natured meaning Im warm natured and dont take to heat very well if you are cold natured you get cold easily by the way it has nothing to do with how much fat you have you are one or the other.Period!

I don't like temps above 70, and it was 85 here today. The humidity wasn't too bad, though. Before long, we'll be having "air you wear".

I have terrible asthsma type allergies, much aggravated by all that time I spent in the greenhouse with 20,000 blooming petunias, etc, and lots of chemicals.
We also have 2 acres loaded with perennials, bulbs and blooming trees, surrounded on two sides with open fields and woodlands, so I either have the heat or the AC on all the time. The only time the windows are opened is on a sunny winter's day, when the skylights and greenhouse really heat up the house, and there's no pollen in the air.
We get by with a little help from our friends

It was 95 here today, but not much humidity, but hot and sunny with no clouds.

No Irish, my family are from Luxembourg, Germany and France. My dad also had this problem. I know it sounds awful but I would love to have a good sweat just once in my life. None of my children inherited this problem but it looks like one of my grandsons did.
