"It was so hot..."
...that I decided to live indoors. Works for me.
I agree with the earlier remark that 90 temp with 80+ humidity that's routine in other places can be much worse. There was a summer day in St. Louis watching an afternoon ball game last year where I think I came really close to needing emergency medical attention, even though I was guzzling water constantly.
But one thing I have learned in the desert is not to leave any little miscellaneous gizmo & do-dad stuff in the car, including the glove box, if it will have to be parked outside for a while during the afternoon. Stuff that's part of the car is apparently made for it, but you'd be surprised what other stuff can melt that you'd never think of. And what a stinking mess it makes when it does. An MP3 music player. A couple of pens. A tape measure in a plastic case. A gooey mass of... whatever that other puddle was. And, I seriously do have a pair of oven mitts in the trunk, just so I can touch the controls enough get the A/C all nicely fired up after having to park it outside for a while.
But that said, it beats the Hell out of ice scrapers, and tire chains, and snow shovels, and all that crap I never, ever plan to see again.
