It is not over a 130 degrees F!
So stop your whining and show a little appreciation for the low-100’s.
Make yourself a nice ice coffee, sit down and read this sizzling article at http://www.wunderground.com/deadheat.
Maybe it will help you appreciate that Hemet is NOT THAT hot!

To put Hemet heat into perspective I looked up some real deserts. Eventually, I want to look up innovations used in these areas to restore forests.
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taklamakan_Desert – Taklamakan Desert. “The Taklamakan Desert, also known as Taklimakan and Teklimakan, is a desert in the southwest portion of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in northwest China…. The archeological treasures found in its sand-buried ruins point to Tocharian, early Hellenistic, Indian, and Buddhist influences. Its treasures and dangers have been vividly described by Aurel Stein, Sven Hedin, Albert von Le Coq, and Paul Pelliot. Mummies, some 4000 years old, have been found in the region. They show the wide range of peoples who have passed through.”
