    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] ...well this has nothing to do with room temperature but I'll tell you anyway....

    I was playing tennis in this National Open in Austin, Texas one year and made it to the quarterfinals....I had played three prevoius macthes to get to that point and the temp had been 95-102 oustide and about 115 on court.......after a 3 hour macth(that I lost [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] ) I looked down at my shoes and thought I had some gum attached to it....but when I pulled, it turned out that the bottom of my shoes had melted....they had the consistancy of chewed gum.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] .....they were basket ball shoes(cause they never have size 15 tennis shoes) and aparently the were only intended for indoor use....I left about 1/8 of my shoes on the court!

    Eechh! I sure do know about humidity. I felt like I was swimming through the air two days ago! High humidity is great for plants, terrible for us! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Slyfi, I had that happen to me too! Except I was in high school and it was in the first round of CIF (statewide champs) and I WAS wearing tennis shoes. It wasn't as bad as yours, but I could definetly tell that there was a burning rubber smell. I toe-slide on my volleys, and it would leave a trail like a pencil eraser on the court! My partner and I went through a half-gallon Coleman of water in the 2 hour match. LOL, the opponents were from San Francisco and couldn't take the heat. We won that one but lost the next round.

    I do remember seeing heat waves coming up from the court and feeling that my legs were burning. Not fun.

    I like upper 60's. Most people think I'm nuts because I prefer temps ~5 degrees cooler than everybody else. Hey, you can always add a layer, but can only go so far in the other direction.

    I don't know about that "add a layer part." I can still be freezing with capilene and 3 layers on sitting in my 50 degree house. Fluffy slippers, beanie, and gloves to boot. That's how I got sick, and why my parents finally turned on the heat to 60. In southern california, you can pretty much get away with wearing almost nothing. Don't you guys watch tv? Think "Simple Life," lol.
