Inquiring Minds

Have you ever seen an oak tree weep? I walked down to the barn a little while ago and ours seemed to be weeping. It got up around 105 here today and with the humidity it had a "feels like" factor of about a thousand degrees. I made the mistake of letting the seat belt buckle get on bare skin as I got in the truck and now I have "Ford" branded on my belly.
We flew into Phoenix, Arizona a few years ago when we went to Sedona. It was early May and already quite warm there. I chatted briefly about the weather with Lloyd at the National Rental car place. I told him it got hot in Alabama too but the humidity made it feel differently. Lloyd snorted and said "you should come back when the temp is 120." Now I would not argue that 120 isn't hot, but I wonder how ol' Lloyd would have fared today here in Alabama. I'm not trying to start up a regional feud, it's just an opinion.
Is there anyone out there that can tell me if one would be more miserable in Arizona with the temp at say 120 or in Alabama with a temp of 106 with about 80% humidity?
Inquiring minds just need to know.

  1. I'll take 120 with low humidity any day, over 95 with high humidity. Here in the Arizona desert, we're in the middle of our high humidity season, so we know what it's like in other parts of the country. We moved here from western New York 18 years ago and dread going back in the summer to visit family. We'd like them to come here, but not in July or August.
