    The pole is in the sun --- I spent 15 mins
    fixing a broken clip on the rope.
    I came inside + my shirt was completely drenched !!!!!
    ....from just fixing a flag's rope.

    I hear you. Mid 90s the last 3 days and with the humidity, really stifling. +20 degrees above normal. Rain has been spotty all of June.

    Total at our house 3/10ths of an inch for all of June.

    Nothing growing but weeds. Grass almost totally browned out. I'm on a well, so I don't water anything but the veggie garden and the flower pots.

    I hear you Joe - I work down on Hudson Street and it was almost blazing @ 7am when I left for work.

    Forget about when you add in the hot pavement and tons of cars/cabs in NYC....wait until about 3pm - it will be an oven.

    Joe - buy yourself a few Under Armour shirts - they keep you cool and when you sweat dry very quickly - unlike a cotton shirt that just stays soaked and gets heavy.

    I think we're looking at 70, breeze coming in off the ocean.

    It's the same here in Iowa. Add all that corn and it makes the humidity even worse!
    Still, I think it's better than -20 degrees that we can get too!

    I also live and work in NYC - and I am not amused.

    I am actually looking forward to the 105 and above degree Vegas temps when I arrive in a couple of weeks because I love that gorgeous, humidity-free heat. In New York city the heat trapped between the skyscrapers, coupled with the exhaust from all of the vehicles, is brutal.

    100+ heat index in dry weather: awesome
    100+ heat index in humid weather: welcome to the suck

    Experiencing the latter today, hope to experience the former out in Vegas next month.

    Just finished an hour walk

    Sweated out a lot of impurities that somehow entered my body at Harrahs.
    Forgot to bring a bottle of water also.
    My daughter commutes into midtown ,after work may have to stop at a few places to re-hydrate between office and Port Auth.

    If you have to work outside in these temps, wicking fabrics are a necessity. Almost all sporting goods companies make them - don't have to buy UnderArmour (though sometimes their outlets have good prices.) My husband loves Nike dri-fit as his favorite shirts, though he has a few different brands. (for nicer occasions, he'll wear "fishing" shirts - Columbia, lots of other companies make in a long sleeve or short sleeve - vents in the back, lots of pockets, wicking, UPF sun protection.....)

    He left early this morning as he had to work on a roof (of a rental property) and wanted to be done before the heat & humidity of our day hit:rolleyes2: Welcome to summer in the South. And how is your solstice going? :drunk:
