    yup... last year Hurricane Isaac hit the Keys a week after Tropical Heat wrapped up. Hopefully this year we'll get lucky again!

    I just rode 24 miles of MTB trails yesterday in northern Delaware (White Clay Creek), drank a little over a gallon of water in the process, and still felt dehydrated. The heat up here is WAY worse than Florida heat, cause there's no breeze to cool you off in the shade.

    Yes, it's a myth that the Keys are unbearably hot in the summer, immortalized by the 1948 movie Key Largo. Truth is the Lower Keys are cooler and less humid than many parts of the US, the weather fairly constant and predictable due to their small land mass far out in the Atlantic and Gulf. They actually have more of a breezy ocean climate, the air stagnating much less than places farther inland.

    I'd rather be in Key West in July & August (where we'll be next weekend) than in other places I've lived, like San Antonio or Houston during the same months. Where South Florida does have a heat issue is the strong sun, being closer to the equator than other parts of the US. You feel it most when getting into a closed car sitting in the sun, or if you stay out in the open without shade. But those things can be lessened with some tricks of the trade down here.

    BTW, temps for Key West next weekend for our trip will be right around 85 F. No rain expected, and no hurricanes. Compare that to other parts of the US right now.
