To quote Matthew Broderick in Biloxi Blues

It’s hot.

It’s damn hot.

This is Africa hot.

Tarzan couldn’t take this kind of hot.

I don’t think I can stay here if it’s going to be this hot.

It’s only 91 — it just feels hotter. Two birds flying overhead just exploded. The paint has melted off my car, forming a black matte puddle, boiling and bubbling. Squirrels are lying in the middle of the road, panting. The Pacific ocean has evaporated. My mind is going. Going. Gone.

    At least you don’t have humidity to make it feel worse! Nothing like 91 degree weather with what feels like 115% humidity, making it feel like 105 degrees.

    True! But… Californians are wimps. We call a little rain with thunder and lightning a “storm.” When it’s 60 degrees out, we call it “freezing.” And when it’s 91 with very little humidity, we call it “Africa hot.”

    Imagine if it snowed there besides in the mountains…what a mess that would be!

    Lacy Tree: He was in Mississippi. Mississippi has some of the worst humidity in the U.S. It only gets worse down in Florida. Cali has dry heat Google Mississippi Humidity index. SMH!!! That is why he said, “It’s only 91-it just feels hotter.” He was in Biloxi Mississippi.
