It would sometimes dip down to around -10F to -20F when I lived in Upper Michigan. The hottest I ever had it was working in a factory on a 100F day. I don’t know for sure exactly how hot it was inside, but I can tell you it was way hotter than it was outside.

It hit 120F in Pheonix, AZ when I was a kid. The coldest was around -25F here in South Dakota several winters ago.

-45C here in Canada.
Today it was about 25C and I was out walking for a couple hours in the heat. When I came home I fainted and hit my head on the wall. I guess the heat was too much, so maybe today goes at the top of my list.

-52 F here in Alaska, but it’s a dry cold, and you can always add clothing…+104 F in Florida, it’s really humid, and you can only take so many clothes off before the law gets involved…

Prob the same feeling u get walking out of the red heaters in the entry way of all the Fred Meyers in Fairbanks, when it’s below -25. It’s like 80 then way below zero in an instant. I haven’t felt below zero since I was a kid. I live in the maritime climate zone of Alaska now, it’s pretty much Seattle or Oregon weather

Med withdrawals are awefull Iv been there. Hope u found a good med my friend! Stay healthy!

-86F/-66C windchill while walking 2 miles to school. School had no procedure for weather that cold and so classes were still in session.

106F/41C temp, just a summer day. Middle of North America can get a bit extreme.

It’s been 120 F here a few times. When I was a kid, the temperature gage on the TV only went up to 120 F, so it may have been more, but it was more than enough for me. We had nothing but a regular fan to cool off with.

The coldest I’ve ever been was riding on the back of our motorcycle-a Honda Goldwing with only a light jacket on. We went to a (semi)nearby lake during the day, which was fine, but spend longer than planned and as the sun set it got cold. It may not have been as cold to anyone else, but being native Californian, anything under 59F is too cold.
An hour and a half later when we got home I was so frozen I couldn’t feel my legs.

110 degrees in Death Valley U.S.A. My friends mom and his uncle took us there. I would think that lots of Californians have heard of the place, I always thought it was pretty famous.
