Around MKE it surpassed triple digits today and yesterday for the first time since 1995, and I don't know about you guys but I love it! It made for a great 4th of July yesterday. Its still supposed to be in the mid-90s tomorrow before things start to cool off on Saturday. So do you guys enjoy the heat? Or do you need me to repeat the question because you were too busy melting?
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

Chicago welcomes you. We've had triple digit temperatures and heat indices for the past week. I'm fine with the heat until I have go outside in a shirt and tie. Then I'm a bit grumpy.
Quoting ajd1992 (Reply 2): And here in the UK we're sat in 65F heat at 00:15 at night and consider that hot...
In my hometown of Atlanta that's sweater weather to many!
Quoting Airstud (Reply 1): However, we're better off here than those in the mid-Atlantic, who had to go through this without power - and forget air conditioning, the poor folks couldn't even just switch on a fan!!
Friends of mine just outside Chicago went without it for several days, too. They were less-than-pleased.

I'm not crazy about it, as it has resulted in shirtlessness by numerous unqualified specimens.

Up here in the Great White North as well. Sweltering for over a week, tomorrow in Ottawa heat index should be well into 00's (F), Toronto warning against as much as 115. Was in Winnipeg last week -- same.
But not related to global warming, of course. Just an aberration.
I was watching the White Sox game last night and the commentators remarked about the fireworks going off. I kept on thinking "I'm not sure those are fireworks." (To be fair, the area around the Cell has gotten much nicer and isn't a bad place to be after dark)
Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

I love the heat! Not in that I have a preference towards hot weather, but rather that I just hate the cold that much. This of course being a big problem considering I live in Canada...
To be honest, I could probably deal with this heat on a consistent basis. The only time it becomes a bother is when I've got my football helmet on. It gets pretty uncomfortable in there during practices and games.

All of these artificial numbers where people (news people) talk about how hot it is and throw numbers out that are including factors such as humidity really irk me. Tell us what the temperature is. Tell us what the relative humidity is. If you want to include a "feels like" sort of number, do it as a footnote (like windchill). Otherwise people come onto internet forums talking about how it's been over 100 for 10 days in a row (or whatever), when really it only broke 100 once! I know it feels worse and is more dangerous when it's more humid but this has to stop!

I was down in eastern Kansas on the weekend and boy was it hot. High 30s/40 celicius the whole time we were there. I had never experienced heat that like in my life (fortunately it was not humid). In Toronto we've been getting some low/mid 30 degree days this summer but it was nothing compared to the big 4-0!
Support the beer and soda can industry, recycle old airplanes!
It's not the heat, it's the damn humidity. Really, if you are East of the Rockies the humidity becomes a factor. The heat has been excessive. I can do without the tripple digits. Ideal summer weather are highs between 75 and 90 with humidity under 35 %. And lows at night below 65 F. This would cut down on the A/C bill. Of course one nice thing about summer, the girls are wearing less clothing. Especially working at the airport, the honey's like to bear all. There are even "prostitots' running around wearing skimpy Daisy Duke Shorts showing cheek and wearing stuff that features "Love Pink" and Juicy. That young teen meat that can get you beat. It's look but don't touch.

This summers weather makes me glad I left Atlanta, those temps are bad enough without the humidity much less with a lot of it. The prairies are a balmy mid 70s on a pretty consistent basis - I love it!

Quoting WestJet747 (Reply 8): Sounds about right. I don't know where you live connie, but with the humidex factored in it's been getting up into the mid-40's down here in Kitchener-Waterloo.
I live in Winnipeg. Unfortunately, right now I have to sleep in Pembroke. Dullest and most retarded place in the world. I only realised that after moving here. Hopefully within a few weeks back in the Peg.

Quoting BMI727 (Reply 7): Chicago...where it's never too hot for a murder.
We could certainly say the same about St. Louis! The weather doesn't change the fact that I don't want to go a mile north of my office downtown, that's for sure.

I'm headed north for Sox vs. Blue Jays on Saturday, unfortunately still supposed to pretty hot. Romero vs. Floyd could make for a long afternoon in the heat. For everyone's benefit, I will be wearing a jersey and NOT going shirtless.
One of these days I need to move to Alaska. That's the weather I like.

Makes me glad I left Chicago for Seattle - although we did have to put up with "Juneuary" last month.
Been in the low to mid 70's while Chicago bakes. I don't miss it.
Funny thing is they are talking "heat wave" here by Sunday and Monday, mid 80's. It's all relative I guess.

I was looking at the Ohare website last night and there looked like quite a few diversions due to thunderstorms. Doesn't it have to be pretty bad when you can't hold and wait for a thunderstorm to pass but have to divert? (I'm strictly an Fs pilot!)
Quoting DocLightning (Reply 13): he cooler things get, the more we start seeing shirtlessness confined to us studs.
