29C=84.2F.

That is a somewhat warm winter day in Florida

The LOW temperatures in my part of Florida rarely drop below 70F during the months of summer hell that is here.

I imagine you got air con everywhere though, or you'd all be dead. It'll be this hot here for a couple of weeks total in a year and that's it, and that's a fairly unusual heatwave, so nobody really bothers with air con here. It's just a couple of weeks of misery every so often. But as those weeks are right now I'm feeling kinda miserable...

Also, 'summer hell', quite. I think the cold is a hell of a lot more bearable than the heat, you can always put a coat on if it's cold, but if it's too hot there's nothing you can do. Florida would kill me off, air con or not.

I would agree about the cold being more bearable than the heat.

When I lived in Chicago I remember a night where the temps dropped to minus 28F (I think that is minus 33 C), and I went out barhopping with my friends.
Now what I didn't plan on was my car getting a flat tire on the way home that night.
Still, I survived.

29°C is low here in summer. The normal temperature is 34°C. And it is the heatwave when it is 38 or 40°C. We don't have as much AC as the Americans, but our house are built with thick walls, so we don't feel the heatwave.

That's why I prefer the South of Europe than the North: the sun. In the US, I would prefer Florida to Chicago.

Gods no. I'm off to Sweden in August for a reason. ;)

(I'm off to Venice in November apparently. Maybe in November it won't be so bad.)

An inside portable A/C is $279. It has a conduit that exhausts out the window and evaporates the water out the window. Take a couple minutes to set up and put away for winter. Even if its a few weeks a year, worth it so you can always have a cool room to be cool in.

I have one. Obviously in FL our A/Cs are on almost every day. In the winter months I only cool my bedroom, a lot cheaper energy than central A/C. In summer it has to be the central or the house will be 120º

Anyway if I was sweating my balls off in England I'd get one.

I got a giant Italian fan, I think it was about half the price of that thing. It's pretty good if it's about 25, but not much use for any hotter.

Maybe next year I'll buy the Real Deal.

Already had to buy two dehumidifiers as its so wet, keeps the mould down. ;)
