"But it's a dry heat."

 

 

When I moved to northern Wisconsin (where there was always a week or two every year where the high for the week was -5 or so,), "Yeah, it gets cold, but it's a dry cold."    Sorry, but -70 wind chill is still cold.

_70 is beyond cold. 

Just as +120 is more than hot. 

Phoenix is the only place I've been where you need oven mitts to open the car door...and to hold the steering wheel. And don't ever leave a tool out side.

In the area we are, we have the Salton Sea nearby. It's flipping humid too.

Heat, I can handle....humidity is a total 'nother story. I'd be in the cab, too.
