Vancouver 34 is about as hot as it gets.

Uncle, who lives in LA, makes it a point to bring a heavy coat with him when he visits us in the summer, lol. When he came here in 1960 during a heat wave, he told us it was nice cool weather. Meanwhile, we were sweating............. Hottest recorded temperature in LA was 45C back in 2010.
maple ridge has hit 40-42 several years back or a 'feels like 40-42' cant remember exactly
