    Sorry, you mean where? I gotta kinda confusing with this post in particular, you mean over there? Right? I can imagine you guys have a lot humidity living so close to a big quantity of water! That's why I dislike cities located near the sea. How was the winter there? Super cold? Colder than last year, right?

    You might not have, but you'd be surprised to hear in some places temperatures can be that high and a bit more in the middle of the dessert. I honestly don't mind whether you believe it or not. I don't have any reason to lie, nor do I gain a thing by doing that. I live right next to the Mexican city of juarez (el paso) and is basically surrounded by a dessert. A lot people die crossing that border on their way to the US, because they have to cross that dessert.

    You could wear a covering sleeve on your left hand and try some aloe vera while driving,it keeps you hydrated and protects you from a tan.Get some cotton shorts fast trellum..:P :P
    I live in the south of Texas to be exact, and no, I'm not joking at all when I tell you it does get hot. A lot people die trying to cross this border, because of the desert. Thanks for the tips, so far I haven't got skin cancer so I think I'm doing good, I'm just glad our weather is more on the dry side, if it was humid then it'd be just exhausting.

    It can be, July is the worst. They say that August is the worst month of the summer but I heartily disagree. I would prefer the dry heat too but then I would have to give up the glorious color show in the Fall in New England.

    Connecticut is right on Long Island Sound which is fed by the Atlantic ocean. Plus we get weather from three directions - the Midwest, the South and Canada. Winter was awful last year, the worst that we have had in a long time. Mainly the heaviest of snow heads north of us so we get hit but not as blasted. When I swim I have a nice pool of water in a small hidden quarry - there are lots of ponds, rivers, streams and lakes around here which makes for good fishing and recreation in th summer.

    Its a shame how many do die and they probably haven' even accounted for all of them. All they want is a better shot at life and end up losing theirs in the process.
