“Florida is so hot in the summer!  I just can’t bear the heat!”

You’re sure to hear that many times during our summers.  It’s why so many people drive and don’t walk or bicycle. They think they must drive.

Assuredly, some people have health issues, such as multiple sclerosis, that make them heat-intolerant.

For other people, it’s a matter of education and acclimation.  Construction and lawn maintenance workers acclimate.  Employees, in iron smelting factories, also do it, and to extremely hot temperatures while tending furnaces operating between 1,022° F and 2,282° F!  And you thought Florida summers are hot!
