RevGalBlogPals Friday Five –
Many areas of the United States are having a heat wave. Global warming,
anyone? Look on the bright side of melting glaciers and
enviro-destruction by taking a crack at the Friday Five:

1. What’s the high temperature today where you are? – 86 F, partly cloudy.

2. Favorite way(s) to beat the heat. – AC and then more AC (which we don’t have here at home!  Swamp coolers just don’t cut it when the humidity index heads up the chart.)

3. "It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity." Evaluate this statement. – I’d take heat, dry but with a breeze.  Having lived in Illinois and Arizona, I do think the humidity is worse.  Of course we never had AC in IL, but always in AZ.

4. Discuss one or more of the following: sauna, hot tub, sweat lodge, warm-stone massage. – Do not like any of them.  I prefer a cool dip in the pool, a cool breeze off the ocean, a cool drink at the coffee shop or a cool melon (or a cool million, I’m not picky.)

5. Hottest you’ve ever been in your life – Twice beyond bearable – 1. 122°F on June 26, 1990, Phoenix, Arizona. 2. The vigil at World Youth Day in Rome: very, very hot – very, very humid, 1.2 million people and their sleeping bags crammed together!  It was amazing and horrible all at once. 

Non-temperature related bonus: In your opinion… who’s hot? – Stephen Colbert is on FIRE!
