Up to 128 degrees. Holy cow. I've experienced 119, and it felt like a hot blow dryer on your skin.

But it's a dry heat (nm)TJeanloz

That's like saying, "I got bit by a dog..."Kristin

But it was a short haired dog.
Even Yahoo agrees - 126 degrees FEELS like only 106 (nm)TJeanloz

Back in 1995 it got up to 128. This is where I grow up in and first started riding. Rides between April-October started before 7am.

My own personal experience tops out at 50C. Madras, India in mid-May. There is a tradition in Tamil Nadu of young married women returning to their parents' home in September so they won't be forced to give birth in May.

I was in St. Catherines, Ontario a few years back when they had a heat wave that peaked at around 105-110. It was so humid that the walls in the hallway of the hotel were dripping, and the card key operated locks wouldn't work because water was dripping into them.

To top it off, I was there for a week long rowing regatta, so I was outdoors for around 6 hours a day, and the racing was insanely intense. Tonnes of people passing out, getting heat stroke, etc. Our team van's trunk was full of 4L jugs of water, and at the end of every day, we had drank them all.
Kinda hot for here...Brooks
