    Yeah, I've never understood all the people who cry about the heat in the midwest. In about 6 weeks the weather will begin to go to hell.

    It gets about as bad here as it does in the south... but for a shorter amount of time. I might not complain about the heat, but I can sure complain about the weather, which goes from gagging humidity in the summer, to wind chills well below zero. During the winter in the south, anything below 40 is considered "pretty damn cold".

    I would rather have cold and snow than this. At least you can go outside in the cold.

    Re: 100 plus heat index...well it could be worse

    Am I the only one who enjoys the variety offered by the climate here? I like the change of seasons. There's always something to look forward to. Of course the extremes (at both ends of the scale) kinda suck, but I'll take the occasional 10 or 90 F days in exchange for the rest of the year. Between working and sleeping, I'm in climate control a minimum of 2/3 of the time anyway.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    Me too. You can always put more layers on, but there's only so many you can take off.

    The only thing I like about the really hot part of summer are thunderstorms, but you can have thunderstorms with much more comfortable weather than this.

    Re: 100 plus heat index...well it could be worse

    You know what I like about days like today?

    You don't have any stupid smart (donkeys) saying "Global warming, my (donkey)."

    Is it just me or do other people hate this line as much as me?

    Check this link out. Apparently 1998 is no longer the hottest year on record:

    Now what's Al Gore going to do for a living? His movie is inaccurate.
