    Thumbs UpThumbs Up Was thinking the same thing when I seen that. Not to mention the difference in humidity. How in the hell people populated this state without A/C in the past amazes me. I mean you walk out at 6:30 in the morning and its 86 degrees with 98% humidity ...you could literally change you shirts because it is soaked by the time you service and load the equipment for the day.

    Here in Tulsa has been great with rain. Just 4 inches last 7/10, so grass and everything else is growing like crazy. Cool temps so not bad at all. So makes 2011 just a memory of all the hot days!

    You guys have totally different heat there and oceanic breeze flowing through my uncle lives in Ocala.

    Here highs may be low now but 6:30 you will be soaked in sweat from humidity up here on the mountains the heat is like hell

    Nothing like a breeze blowing over 90 degree water to cool things down.
