Right. I was going to clarify that but figured most would read the article. How do they measure "heat index" anyway?

It's like the opposite of "wind chill" -- it's based on the actual temperature and the relative humidity which inhibits perspiration, making it feel hotter than it actually is..

Heat index, not actual heat. Actual temperature was 115. Hot, but not the hottest around.

I was like holy fuck! Until your post. Ive been in 128+ actual temp. Sucks balls.

I can't image it's very safe to stay outside for long periods right now, especially children and older people that are more susceptible.

Thermal mass. In the southwest US you'll find a lot of adobe houses because they stay cooler in the summer.

How much is that in dog degrees?

That is a 12 on the Dog Degree Index. If it is 90 degrees out it will feel like 12 dogs are lying on top of you.

Nuts to that. It was 103 yesterday, and it's supposed to get up to 104 today where I'm located. Not a fan. Love my central air though.
