Summer heat and misery discussion thread

Where are y0u located in Florida?

Hmmm. In Memphis, Tennessee it is 89 right now with 63% humidity. Heat index is 99. It's supposed to get up to 92 today with scattered thunderstorms tonight. Usually it's hotter and more humid here. We normally get the heat from the plains and the humidity from the Gulf of Mexico.
East central Florida, a few miles from the coast, so the heat where I live isn't quite as bad because the sea breeze is there, but where I work is more interior so it just bakes.
And those summer thunderstorms help, too. This time of year here it rains almost every afternoon-evening to some degree.

I feel you. I used to do attic insulation for my father's construction company. We had a standing rule that if it was going go be 100 degrees out, we wouldn't insulate the attics. We had a run of 11 days over 100 degrees that summer. The day we implemented the policy, on the news that night, a guy in a competing company died from heat stroke doing exactly what I did. I have measured attic temps of 125 before. Roof temps were much worse. I did roof work for almost 20 years. On the upside, it made me more heat tolerant so that I can fursuit for a very long time, although age is taking its toll on that.

when you work outside, and you have to wear protective cloths due to the companie policies and have to carry some eavy boxes along the way, it's worse than being in the melon field.

Anyone else having more problems with fleas this year than previous? Normally they're not this aggro but I think they tend to survive better in hot weather. Maybe it's just me. Being a fleabag.

Warm weather can accelerate their egg development, though a heated house in the winter can also do the same.
