      Dick, I always suspected you live on another planet. This pretty much makes it official.

          Dick, I'm about 80 kilometres (50 miles)north of you in Surrey. Temperature on my patio right now is 29 Celsius. Double that and add 30 for Fahrenheit. Forecast for tomorrow is 33 C.[xx(]

            Well, while you guys are sweating, we're enjoying comfortable mid-80s daytime temps here in western Kentucky, with really low humidity. Heck, it got down to 59 degrees last night, which is a Godsend this time of year! It's been a lovely break from the usual early-August steam bath we normally experience, with air temps around 100 and heat indices around 105-110.

            I've been outside quite a bit today, and will be again tomorrow to mow the lawn, and I have a feeling I won't even sweat much, it's that comfortable.

                  Actually winters ain't bad either. Rarely freezes. No snow in Bellingham last year (although it generally does snow once or twice a winter and stays for a day or two). Don't tell anyone, however. We like the rumors that we all have webbed feet here .

                        About what it is here now and feels like autumn.
                        'Course, in your neck of the woods, it will probably be humid. Relative to what you're accustomed to, could be oppressive.

                        Around here, normal summers could be high 90's and 98% humidity. That's like living with a 289 block on your chest. Folks around the Gulf Coast have it even worse.

                        In our parts, April temps of 50 degrees require putting the top down.

                          Another myth. Certainly the air is not as dry as Arizona, but more like the California coast. Right now 57%. 30-50% is about normal for summer. Moist enough that you don't dry out like a cactus, but no where near like anything east of the Rockies.
