110, ouch! It was 98 and windy here, but I spent the day in Barstool, where it was 108 and muggy.

I have that problem too. The one time I took a leap of faith and made a change (moving from CA to PA), it ended up being the biggest mistake of my life. Now, I'm having difficulty moving back (afraid that I won't be able to find a job). Ugh!
By all means, roam to the East Coast, but don't move here. It sucks here. Terrible. I mean, if you think the dry heat of Southern California is bad, wait till it's 95 degrees and 100% humidity. It's the humidity that kills you, every time. It gets so humid here in the summertime that you're sweaty again 10 seconds after stepping out of the shower. Disgusting.
And the winters--if it snows, it's pretty for 10 minutes and then all the traffic turns the snow into this disgusting slush. Then they put salt on the sidewalk to get rid of the ice, and the salt gets all over your shoes and clothes. And if you have to stand outside for more than 10 minutes your hands start to hurt like your fingers are gonna fall off.
Yeah, it makes it impossible to breathe properly when it's that humid. And, god damn, yes, the fucking sweating! I'm actually going to buzz my hair, because I'm sick of the sweat plastering it to my face.
I can dig the snow, I love it, yes, even freezing.
Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.
