You suck it up and deal with it and drink lots of water.

I work in a shop and mostly work in interiors, it's not easy to stay clean while you're sweating your ass off.

House is a/c and nice and cool . Work not so much . I didn't realize how miserable it is if you were way south. I guess this would be like their winter. Now sun and nice temps in dec or Jan I'm ok with that.

This heat sucks! With it being in the 90s outside it is in the 120-130+ range at work. I can't wait for the snow again!

Its been above 95* here in NC for the past 2ish weeks, today, tomorrow and Saturday are supposed to be 101-105. You get used to it.

I'm planning to shoot a 3-gun match Saturday, outside in the sun, no shade in the 105* heat, just keep putting on the sun block, and drinking water, and its not all that bad.

Tpyically the way to deal with it is post on GL4x4 on a regular basis how you love your new home, and Michigan sucks.

I took a few pictures of our driveway and back yard last winter in January.
Whenever I think it is hot, I look at those pictures, snow plow piles and drifts so deep no view of the front door or backyard fence.
That cools me down.
