I survived the scorching summer of 1976 and the superstorm of 1993

I survived, without air-conditioning, the heat and drought in Britain in the summer of 1976, a feat worth remembering.

For 15 consecutive days from 23 June to 7 July, 1976, temperature reached 90°F (32.2°C) somewhere in England. On June 28, I vacated my room in college permanently.

(Heatwave details from the BBC Weather Centre and Wikipedia.)

In the same vein, I experienced the superstorm of 1993 that hit the east coast of North America.
