Yeah, but we're talking about St. Louis in the summer by the airport.

And lord knows I found it hot enough there as it is!
Caught in the headlamp glare of your own blinding vanity/Mesmerised by the stare of your shallow personality
Gorging the junk food of flattery you drag your fat ego around/Everyone floored by the battering you give to whoever's around
Oh Narcissus you petulant child admiring yourself in the curve of my eyes/Oh Narcissus you angel beguiled unsated by self you do nothing but die

Honey, that was only June. You don't want be here in July or let alone in August.

When I moved into the new Casa Kolter on August 1, 2006. It was 101F before heat index and humidity. Reason why we call this the State of Misery ;)

You're from that super-warm city place! I'm surrounded by Ocean, it's always fairly chilly here. You'd likely hibernate year round, as opposed to just during the winter.

When I went running at 7AM, it was muggy as hell. I stepped outside and started sweating before I was done stretching! In fact, when I first met St. Louis atmosphere upon leaving the airport it was like walking from a nice happy climate straight into a wall of water. One of the first things I did upon getting back was tell my colonel, "You were absolutely right, sir. San Diegans are horribly spoiled for wonderful weather."

Last year we had twelve days in a row with a heat index of 112 or above. That's 99-102 degrees, plus humidity.

The run up and run down to that time was pretty awful too.

St. Louis just isn't habitable in August.

*hugs Canada*

Not that it doesn't get disgustingly hot in Toronto (or so I'm told XD )... but out where I am it's always nice. We get breezy weather, and we're only an hour outside Toronto.

It actually seemed pretty nice to me during most of the cookout. Like the Kolters said, it can and will get a lot worse around this part of the country.
