we're used to it.
we hate it.
we have Air Conditioning. (those that can afford it anyway).

what we don't have are wonderful English green lawns and gardens.
we have lots of desert - Yuck! :o

25C no problem.

It's the humidity here near the Great Lakes that I can do without.

35C + high humidity is horrible. We get some vicious thunder strorms here in the summer. We've already had 2 of note. 1 spawned a tornado near Strathroy, Ontario.


Canada is a country of extremes though. It was 20C here today, and 8C yesterday. Parts of Manatoba had over 1' of snow 2 days ago...while we had 22C and sunny.

Manatoba is about a 20 hour drive from where I live in SW Ontario.

My lawn is damn near perfect this year: nice and lush and green...but I have to cut it every 4 days too.

Well,25 C is chilling cold where I live :) .Right now it's about 12:48 PM and the AC's is ON and the AC remote reads the temperature as 27 C and I am happy.

The maximum temperature that we topped this year is 44 C.So you will have to be in a cool swimming pool all the day. :) .

I am waiting for rains like a mad man.

Being in Michigan, I can understand. We've been drenched with rain lately (they say it's likely through the end of the MONTH) and it's been really humid. When you fell like you could walk on it, or cut it with a knife, you know it's bad.

P.S. I keep looking at that picture, Spaz...that wouldn't be the Canadian Armed Forces Official Drinking Uniform, would it? ;) Or is it just the lighting?

I know what horrible hot feels like in the summer. 96-98F (33-37C) is common for long spells but what really makes it horrible is we have 100% humidity.Makes you just want to lay down or passout but anything to cool down.If you really want a shitty day example that happened last year it was a record setting high and I got stuck in traffic for 4 hours between 12-4PM. I felt verry sick for a long time due to the heat of my bikes motor(1150CC 4 cyl) plus midday heat in the sun.Horrible to top it off that day I was pushed out of a guys way on my 1000lb full dresser. I layed under an overpass after that and just prayed to die. I cant imagine living in a country this happens year round.
edit: I mean the heat part not the crash.
