The thunderstorms are really scary for kids/dogs/cats/hookers, cause lightning is EVERYWHERE, because being that high, it doesnt stay wet after a rain and the snow is most powder, till it starts melting-KEWL

I haven't been to the beach in nearly a decade! Not fair! Recent surgery on my shoulder is kinda stopping me from doing anything really fun this summer. On the upside I will have this awesome scar! Ha ha ha! When asked, I shall say something cool like a knife fight! ha ha!

Hookers?! They are year round rain or shine! Ha ha ha! It snowed pretty good a year ago here (the snow stayed on the ground for almost a week... its been nearly 20 years since that has happened). It was awesome! Had my TJ at the time and I was VERY pleased to how well she handled in the snow. The little Hybrids had nothing on me that week!

X2!!!

Well, I have a Spiderweb SW1 JK-2D 1-Piece, that goes over the front and back of my JK 2-Dr. I also have a Dirty Dog 2-Piece, that I use the front bikini piece with sometimes.

Since our Texas Weather has been getting in the High 90's lately, I made myself a Mod Saturday. I took my Dirty Dog Bikini Piece, added a few more Grommets to key places, and cut off the three Velcro Loops up front (Replaced those with Grommets...).

I then installed the Dirty Dog Bikini up front, and covered that with the SpiderWeb Full Piece. Most of the holes in the front, on both tops, matched up, so I only needed one Bungee per-two-holes on both tops.

Now, I've got double coverage up front, giving me extra UV protection and extra Shade, but still leaving me with enough see-through and air flow with the mesh screens, and also coverage for the back section of my Jeep. When it cools off a bit here in the Fall, I can remove the SpiderWeb 1-Piece, and just run with the Dirty Dog up front.

Even with us hitting 99 a few times already, I haven't had to use the A/C at all. Our Humidity so far this year, has been the worst since we moved here in '05. We've had a LOT of Rain this year, and with that, we've had Humidity between 95-100%. Now, we don't usually hit the 3-Digits until July, but when we do, it'll stay with us until late August and September. Last year, we had Record Highs, along with Record Number of Days at 100+ Degrees (59 Days I believe it was...), AND..... we had Record Consecutive Days of 100+ Degrees (36 Days in a row, I believe...). Even with the heat we had last year, My SpiderWeb Shade kept me Cool without having to use the A/C.

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

Go to North central Florida 100 degrees with 100% humitity and no wind. Thats ruff. Mostly no wind. Atleast when its that hot there seems to be no wind.

Well, I'll say that because of the heat-I keep the top on ,but

When it's 115° in the Nevada desert-the humidity is usually 5%--NO SWEAT, but

Sometimes the wind can be 30/40 mph and the TUMBLEWEED are dangerous, yea, believe it or not-they have NEEDLE prongs that can really hurt, but

Then it snows, so it's OK

Yes..... I totally agree! I even got rained on Saturday in the 95 degree weather with the heat index of 105!!! Ugh the rain was not on my radar but my JEEP dried out pretty quick

Its been hot as blue blazes here in Oklahoma. have had the top off now since may. It's ok as long as you dont have any redlights or stop signs ha ha. Got to love excessive heat warnings already. luckily major storm system came through and cooled us off to a breezy 89. nice..good luck with the dry heat we have the fantastic humidity!!

Why would you like humidity? High levels of humidity means that you can't sweat to cool yourself off. You'll still sweat but the sweat wont get absorbed. making 95 with 100% seem like 105 with 20%

105 is a fairly normal summer day here. Its not surprising for it to be 115 or more in the middle of the day
