I never had to shovel six feet of liquid sunshine from my driveway :wink:
Went to Florida (Disney Land) in the mid-80's as a teen (13 or so). That was in March for spring break. Nearly died from the heat/humidity and I was getting used to it down there as I'd spend 1.5 years in northern Alabama and a couple months in Mississippi at this point.

As for humidity, not sure AC can keep up sufficiently for my wife. She has me turn the A/C on for humidity here when it's 70 outside (most definitely NOT requires AC weather). Bad asthma will do that for you I guess.

PS: No gators in the backyard, or deadly snakes. Coyotes are the worst I've had to worry about.

The summers in Florida really depend where you are. If by the coast with a sea breeze, they usually aren't too bad. If more inland, it can get pretty nasty. I had a friend in Gainesville (an inland area) that would bike to campus and he always brought three shirts with him; one to change into when he arrived at work all sweaty and one as a backup in case he got too sweaty just walking around campus.

I've lived in Florida more than a half-century and have been through numerous hurricanes. The most rain we ever had was 13" as the storm passed through and since everywhere around here is pretty much flat, the water just drains away into the rivers, estuaries and the ocean. It's not pleasant at times, but as I said, I never had to shovel rain.

I grew up in New Jersey, which can be just as hot as Florida gets in the summer. The difference is, it's New Jersey :?

It can get that hot in Chicago too, but just as our recent cold/snow was unusually bad, such summer heat waves are generally uncommon. Some years will be really bad, others mostly temperate. I think our average summer temp is around 80 or 81.

Saturday it's suppose to be 50. We can get uncommonly warm winter days too. If we weren't going to be awash in snow melt, that's warm enough to do things outside. I think I'm going to fire up the grill.

The weather continues bizarre here. It hit ninety today locally, which if not a record must be pretty damn close. Over the next week the temp is expected to drop down into the seventies for a high, which is about average. It's a shame, my pool was at eighty-five this afternoon and I'm loath to drag out the solar cover just for a week or so till it gets warm again.
