[Debate] The general chat thread

#19
In 2011 we had the actual temperature at 120F (48C) and humidex... heat index brought it up as high as 125/51. So yes, humidity makes all the difference.
Right now though the southwest is extremely hot... Phoenix is undergoing the same conditions... locally as hot as 130/54. That must be.. fun.. to say the least Tongue

As for winter, it doesn't exist here. We just call it a cool (and occasionally cold) spring. But I've seen low temperatures here drop to as low as 10F/-12C with wind-chill down to 0/-17 but that's not cold compared to places further north.

120F? That's... unsafe. Even Florida doesn't see temps that hot very often.

I've honestly NEVER seen 120F in either Florida or Louisiana. Must be pretty uncomfortable, even without humidity.

Heck yeah. I don't think I'd be able to really handle anything above around 105 or so.

The highest I'd seen when I lived in Tennessee was about 101... and I think that was the hottest I've lived in my life.

I've been in 106 before. I took a 20 minute walk and came back soaked. It's definitely not pleasant.

Ouch. Must suck to feel like you were just swimming and turns out you were just having a walk in the park Tongue.

Yeah, that's not fun. I couldn't really handle more than 20 minutes. Even that was a stretch. Tongue

So, do you like hot weather or cold weather better?

With the humidex (the "feels like" temperature) I've had the unfortunate experience of 50 degrees (122 fahrenheit)...

That's halfway to boiling point on the celsius scale...

It was about 38*C without the humidex. That was a horrible day... the electric grid was strained that day. No blackouts in my area that day, but some areas did lose power.

If it's so hot that there is a power outage, I'd say there is a serious issue. Tongue

Yeah, especially because then you normally lose A/C if you don't have a generator.

Most A/C systems cannot really handle that kind of heat anyway.

In Outback Australia 45+ degrees C is not uncommon in the summer. Even in Melbourne summer heatwaves can hit 43

Oh wow, that's pretty insane. Not sure I could handle that. Tongue

On a side note, I'm headed out of town tomorrow morning, and will be back late in the week. I won't have internet access, but moderator_1 will be watching over the community in the four days I'm out. Big Grin
