Surprised two of them come from Wisconsin, we seem to have more sayings for how cold it is up here.

My favorite part...it's not actually that dry of a heat in the worst part of the summer.  The humidity goes up in the monsoon season, and the heat doesn't really go anywhere.  Even the last few days, I think the humidity has been somewhere like 20-30% depending on the day, which feels like more when it's 110 or so.


Yep, my thermometer/barometer has been around 30 or 40 each day now for the past few days... Paradise Valley... in the next few weeks it'll hit around 100 and be 110 degrees out.
STILL not as bad as the east coast, though... That place is a freaking sauna 27/7

Holy Shiat. You drive a forklift. So do I. Your handle is Bourbonman, which implies you enjoy bourbon, as do I. We use the 'cold as a witchs tit' analogy similarly. Are we twins?

"Bear Caught", a saying used in the south, for heat exhaustion. "Bear" is the sun. Indian or something, I forgot.
