I will be in Helsinki starting Saturday. My solution to +110 F temperatures here in LV. Finns have punched above their weight in modern geodesy e.g. Heiskanen, Kukkamaki and Hirvonen. I believe they led the way on motorized leveling and continue world-class work in gravity and GIA monitoring and modeling. My mother’s side of the family were from Finland.

Anchorage is only about 1 degree north of Helsinki's latitude and our temperatures are normally about the same as what you posted. The Finns hit above their weight in a lot of categories besides geodesy. Just ask the Russians.

84° F. here today...TOO frick'ing HOT for my liking, but I don't complain (much) until we hit high 80s/90s (when I complain a LOT).

I don't see any reason to live so close to hell that the Temps reach [well] over a 100°.
