    First off, no I do not live in hell. It's just ungodly. Second, before all you non-Americans scream, 117 degrees Fahrenheit is about 48 degrees Celsius.

    That being said, do you guys like hot weather? How do you deal with it? Do you go to the beach, get some ice cream, pray that the sun stops being awful?

    Me? I hate the heat. I need advice.

    Eww, 48 degrees does not sounds nice x_x I get hot really easily, so hot weather is something I always try to avoid by being indoors. If I can't sit in an air conditioned room, I'll lie down and die lol.

    I stay indoors almost 24/7 but the times that I do go out, it's miserable and humid as hell.

    Sounds like my weather in Summer. Living in Northern California, we get pretty harsh temperatures (every day in July is typically over 110°F). Fortunately, we live a 20 minute drive from the lake and about an hour drive from the mountains. Plenty of places to escape death.
    As for suggestions, I'd say join Team Aqua to help awaken Kyogre. Flooding the land should do the trick!

    What part of Northern California do you live in that it's over 110 degrees everyday in July? Yikes! Back when I was living in the Bay Area, I never experienced that. It was usually just over the 100 degree mark.

    Shasta County, which is above Sacramento. You'd think being more up North we'd get cooler weather, huh?

    > 117 degrees

    That is disgusting and I would melt faster than an ice cream in a volcano. How did you live through that X_X

    The best advice I can give is stay hydrated, take cold showers, and have fans blasting full power throughout the day.

    My step sis said it was around that (45) where she lives.
    It only went up to about 35 here.
    I actually don't mind hot weather as much as I mind cold. I'd suggest getting a stand fan you can put next to you.

    It’s been triple digits since the beginning of July up here in the Sacramento Valley. Trust me, I’ll take the California heat over what a lot of America is experiencing. You ain’t felt nothing hot until you’ve been to Georgia and Florida in July/August.

    The humidity is what kills. It was fairly mild in Missouri where I grew up, but the worst part is that it makes your clothes stick to your skin, you sweat like a pig and it is maybe one degree cooler if you stand in the shade.

    I’ll take dry heat over humidity any day.
    I like to stay cool by keeping myself hydrated and often soak in the swimming pool in my parent’s backyard. An evening swim feels fantastic before a shower before I head off to bed.

    Where I live, temperature easily goes over 35 degree Celsius so I am used to it but I still hate hot weather. But there are few things that can be enjoyed in hot weather like water parks, mangoes, cola and ice cream. But I just wish it does not go above 30 celsuis cause at that temp, I even sweat when sitting under fan.

    I hate hot weather. And I live in the south so it’s always hot and muggy.

    Where I'm from it rarely goes above 25 degrees, and I can barely handle that. 48 would kill me.x_x

    ugh noo
    I hate heat & don't deal well other than waiting to get somewhere with AC ): It's easier to warm up than it is to cool down. Here where I live it gets especially humid, which makes the summers absolutely unbearable sometimes. Not really even the temperature...it's just the humidity which can really make it hard to want to go outside.
