    We get a few hot days then it cools off.. But rarely 100+
    Nights generally really cool off.
    I never had a home AC until 4-5 years ago

    Not noon yet and 66*. Sweet!
    Was 100 couple days ago at 9am

      humidity is what gets me, I'm not a fan of much over 80* but I avoid humidity..... and given the rain storms just before this, humidity was in abundance.

          Willow Springs race track was bouncing near 100 degrees, I was fine. Just have to keep hydrated because the wind was unbelievable.

            Today it's currently 37 Deg C (98.6 F), forecast for tomorrow is also 37 C. Got a text yesterday from a friend in BC's Okanogan region, it was 44 Deg C (111.2 F), while up in Morthern Alberta where I grew up (Grande Prairie), it was 41 Deg C (105.8 F), which is about 20 Deg C higher than what would be considered the avg temp.....it's been a long week, and it's not over yet !!

              I heard the plains in Canada are getting it much, much worse. Prayers for them.

                Definitely not typical, and well above the seasonal averages, hopefully it doesn't drag on too long!! I woke up on the couch @ 2:00 AM last night SOAKED, went and pounded back a couple glasses of water, and sat down at my desktop PC, it was still 26 Deg C (78.8 F), which would be above what would be a normal daytime high around here. And when I got up @ 6:30, it was still 23 Deg C (73.4 F).
                Seems like a day here or there is tolerable, but when you string a good number of consecutive days together, the buildings get heat-soaked, andalong with the overnight highs, the interior temps get way out of hand. it's shortly after 6:00 PM here, and the temp inside my house ATM is 32.8 Deg C (91 F)

                Although the BC Okanagan is a much warmer climate than where I'm at, I still feel for them, with temps into the 40's (40 Deg C = 104 F)

                    The method I vaguely recall from Post Secondary Tech School:

                    Celsius to Fahrenheit: (Deg C x 9/5) + 32

                    Fahrenheit to Celsius: (Deg F-32) x 5/9

                    .....or you just download Josh Madison's Unit Converter

                    https://joshmadison.com/convert-for-windows/

                    **Or, if you have a Scientific Calculator with SOLVER mode, you can load the formulas up, after which you just plug in the known value, and it will do all the heavy lifting
