August In Fla Sucks, Change My Mind


The only easy day was yesterday

Try August in South Louisiana...I thought Hog Town was hot until I spent an August at LSU.

Humidity is off the charts with little to no breeze.

Now Fall is awesome.

SWFL is the absolute worst in the summer. I love love love the heat but competing in golf tournaments in Ft Myers in August was one of the most miserable experiences. Worse than any 2 a day football I went through in the Midwest. Walking 18 holes carrying my bag I drank a 20 oz bottle of water every hole and never peed. Literally could wring my shirt out after a round like I had jumped in a pool.

Lifelong FL resident in NE FL.

Used to work as a roofer for two summers and for a power utility subcontractor for one summer (yes, those creosote poles are awful.) I had no issues back then (got close to "bear caught" a few times) but I would melt if I had to work outdoors for 10 hrs a day now.

Since graduating, I've proudly held an office job which is a low humidity 74 degrees during July-Sept.

Still, I will gladly trade heat and humidity for snow and ice anyday.

You know, when I was on campus at an elite Florida engineering college, hot humid summers were the best time of the year. Never thought about complaining.
