Subject: RE: BS: 117 Degrees!!!?!?!?!....
I grew up in the southwest desert of Arizona. As a kid we regularly had summer temperatures over 120 F. Once, I remember the high for the day in my home town was 132 F. But now I live in Alaska where the temp today will be in the 70s and all you need to do to cool down the house is open a few windows or turn on the fan. I'm flying out to Dutch Harbor in the Aleutian Islands today where the temp will be in the low 50s and so I will have to bring a jacket and rain coat. Summers in Alaska are great.
