It's been crazy in the house. Once the sun hits the western side of the house and has no trees blocking its rays, our house heats up to 80 in no time. I think by 5 am it gets back to 70.

Sure, the absolute temperature in a tropical summer is still significantly higher than the mid-west summer, but I think the MUCH higher UV radiation due to a 33% thinner ozone layer here is an overwhelming factor in how hot it feels.

Even my dad had a similar observation last year when he came over to visit me last July.
Funny the misconceptions people have about us upper prairie dwellers. Though BtB, you're more of a forest dweller. Still, these upper latitudes are NOT blanketed with show 10 months a year. Take glwanabe for example. I know the heat and humidity his area can get miserably oppressive for significant stretches of time. However, I would put my hotest, most humid day up against his hottest, most humid day anytime.

Looks like there's a cold front coming through tonight. Perhaps tomorrow we can finally get a daytime high back in the 70's.
