This summer, we're averaging about 3 degrees higher than that for both.
The key to coping is to try to do everything that involves going outside closer to the 75-degree part of the day (morning) than the 95-degree part of the day (4-5pm). Then you spend the rest of the time in air conditioning.
I live in Houston and I would say we have had a pretty average summer so far. I am not sure if it has gotten to 100 here this summer; although we have had a fair share of upper 90s days. I consider mid-to-upper 90s and humid par for the course in the summer. I moved here in late 1979 and the first full summer spent here we had two or three weeks of 105-107 every day. I thought people were crazy to live down here. But you get used to it to a certain degree. If you're going to live in Houston you really have no other choice.
