It is unless your older can't move too well your house heats up to at least 10 degrees hotter and you have no way to cool it off...No air conditioning here sometimes it's well over a hundred in my place.

Roger, a bucket of ice in front of a fan helps. Anyone thinking over 100 is "nice weather" must be from Arizona or somewhere else with crazy high temps. Stay safe everyone, especially check on elderly family/neighbors, it can be dangerous. Stay hydrated everyone.
