8/10. I was in Minneapolis as a 16 year old for a soccer tournament in July/Aug., 19years ago. Sadly the only thing I can remember from the trip was, "Wow, this heat is HORRIBLE!" We stayed in the dorms on campus at the U and there wasn't any air conditioning. Myself and my teamates were up all night running to the bathroom to soak our towels to put over our heads! Horrible!!! I hear the winter is even worse!!! But I also hear that Minneapolis is a wonderful city, I would love to visit it again.

That was either 1988 or 1989. 1988 was the hottest summer I have ever experienced here, 1989 was only a half step behind. There was one day in 1989 where is was 106f (41c) and so much heat was radiating from the pavement downtown that the flags were blowing straight up. I think that was the hottest day in the last 20 years. Those were the summers that prompted everyone to get air conditioning. Normally it is not that bad.
