I'm at sea, it's very hot here, but the climate is different, although the Sun is burning, there is always fresh breeze from the sea. Back home it's humidity that can kill you, that's definitely true..

It is very rainy here in Holland. It is not a great summer. I feel more like autumn tomorrow will only be 17 degrees.
....I am going South for holidays....

Now that is a great use of Air Con smile.gif I actually had to buy a portable Air Con unit to supplement the Central Air in my condo! The electric bills are about 600 US per month which is BRUTAL.

I think it got about 100 here last month or so for awhile. In Florida though its not the temperature extremes that get you. If its hot, its extremely humid, making it feel worse. If its cold, its extremely dry, making it bite.

I know people who prefer 10 degrees in New York over 40 degrees in Florida.
