    People hate the summer until the blizzards hit? I have never once had to scrape heat from my windshield or spun out on black heat.

    I think northern Europeans aren’t used to really hot weather. Temps above ~80 deg F (27 deg C) might be considered pretty hot. And there’s humidity to consider. This year in Colorado where I live it’s been pretty cool in July and August – mid 70’s deg F (~24 deg C) to mid 80’s deg F (~29 deg C) which is much cooler than last summer where we had mid 90 deg F (~35 deg C) temps and late June it reached an all time record of 102 deg F (~39 deg C). A majority here do not have AC.

    I hate it when it’s really hot and you’re melting in the humidity for people to say they prefer it to winter because “you don’t have to shovel sunshine” and other such phrases. Give me the winter any time over the blistering humidity!

    One of my favorite weather trivia items: The British Consulate in Houston pays tropical hardship bonus. (90° 90% is called “Houston weather” in Texas. “In Tucson, it can get to 110°F, but they don’t mind, it’s a dry heat. In Winnipeg, it can get -30, but they don’t mind, it’s a dry cold. In Vancouver, it rains a lot, but they don’t mind, it’s a dry rain.”

    I thought this strip was about Canada!? I never saw that many ice cubes at one time in England! Also, they don’t know “Ice Tea”. True story: Ordered Ice Tea at a restaurant outside of London, waiter brought bottle of Asti ( Asti Spumonti ). Never did get tea!

    In San Francisco bay area, a lot of homes don’t have a/c. We have hot weather for a few days and then the fog comes in. June and July can be downright chilly and windy. The best “summer” months are September/ October.

    Have you SEEN the forecast for this week? I live in Oakland, and anything higher than 74 is misery to me.
