With 21% humidity,  it's doable.  :nod: I've been in Tucson in 115 degree weather and barely broke a sweat. Dry heat. In Florida with high humidity, 90s are killer.

I’m in New Orleans with the Mrs. on her business trip. My first visit to the Big Easy.
Walk outside and it’s a sauna 🙁😅

Maybe November to February is better  :shrug:

New Orleans is great this time of year.  November to February it's damp there.

Hot weather must follow my wife

We went to Denver some years ago and it was their hottest period on record for that period.

According to weather forecasts with the HIGH dew points this week every day its felt like 104 PLUS
I’ve not done my walking tour like I would like. I rode the streetcars yesterday .

The MB Superdome is behind the hotel. That thing looks like the spaceship in the original “The Day The Earth Stood Still”. 

I’m looking for the robot Gort to walk out at any minute. 🤣

November is better.

If I were in charge no deep South locations would be chosen in summer OR change the convention to fall / winter time.

You have to be in peak condition to handle this humidity.  I don’t fight Mother Nature.

Used to stay at the Holiday Inn on Dauphine St. when in New Orlean, and after showering and going out to dinner, in about 2 block, I was soaking wet with sweat. The humidity there is killer..

What's funny. I was here at the end of June. The heat wasn't a problem for me on that occasion. But, the sun won  on yesterday.  :tongue2:

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
