Wind Chill vs. Heat Index

When I was a little girl growing up in Albany, N.Y. each winter day before leaving for school I listened to the weather and the wind chill index. This figure made me decide on how many sweaters or socks were added to the mix before leaving to walk to school.

Now as a senior I live in the south. Leaving air conditioned buildings is like venturing into a sauna. It is even difficult to breathe most days. Today in the building where I work at we received this overhead page, “Due to the extreme heat index please limit outside activities to 15 minutes and ensure adequate hydration.”

Isn’t it funny how life changes?
