A beautiful, sunny 78 here along the river. I need to stop dinking around and get outside!

Supposed to get up to 84 today and I have to go out...I'm going to put the A/C in the living room window today. I can't handle this.

It just gets worse for me as I get older. Most likely because of the several incidents of heat stroke when I was a kid.

That is no good Fiona!

How does heat stroke feel? As I have a very hard time in Summer, some days I feel ever so bad...just wondering if I have had heat stroke?

I really can't describe it beyond collapsing in the heat and waking up in the hospital with IV fluids running. It happened 4 times when I was under 12 years old. Have never been able to handle the heat since, but it seems that I can't handle anything more than 75F (~24C) these days.

As crazy as it sounds you start shivering with hyperthermia and have a high fever. An oxymoron. You also become dehydrated really fast.

A crisp 55*F with a 5 - 10 MPH breeze.
I had the onset of heat stroke back in 1962. Symptoms were weakness and dizziness (similar to carbon dioxide poisoning). Salt tablets and water pulled me back from the brink of loosing consciousness.
