A hundred and what?! Cool wave in the 90s!

Which would you rather have 100+ or 0-? Actually, none of the above. Can we choose that?

Have outside jobs been suspended for the next few days? How can you cool off when the air is running hotter than your body temperature?

This makes the second summer that we have gone without central air conditioning but these last few days and the upcoming ones are forcing a re-evaluation of priorities.

What issues are you having? DO you need help?

I would rather have the 100's, I'm cold by nature and I freeze if it drops below 70.

Most consecutive days, maximum temperature at least 100 degrees: June 23-30, 1952. Those people didn't have air conditioning back then and I bet most didn't have a fan either.

I would rather have 0-

I would rather be cold than extremely hot because it is easier to get warm than to cool off.

We just purchased a couple of window AC units last year since our AC unit died. Yesterday was the first time that we had to actually bring our dogs inside to keep them cool, since we've had them. We have them inside today earlier than yesterday since it is getting so hot.
