# Thread: How hot is it at night...

1. ## How hot is it at night...

where you guys live?

I keep reading about everyone using silk or fleece blankets for overquilts, and not needing underquilts. Just reading it makes me freeze. On average at night it's like 9*C(I don't know Fahrenheit, and I don't know how to convert it either) And I wouldn't dream of not using a sleeping bag.

So give me some numbers.

Summer lows in the mountains north of Atlanta where I live are typically in the 60s. There are nights where it never gets below 70. Its the reason I started hammocking in the first place, nothing like the comfort and coolness of a hammock on a sultry evening.

Getting out my metric converter - OK, right now, 16C would be a cool night, recent nights have been around 21-22C.

3. Summer lows here in phoenix Az stay around 32-37c degrees

4. ick!!! you guys need ice-water filled underquilts.err under-bladders
You should be making DIY heat sinks not insulation!
I'd have to hang my ENO mostly underwater and sleep with a snorkel.

thats rediculous. You must get alot of people spontaneously combusting down there in temps that high at night.

For a Google search just type the following:

9 C to F

9 degrees Celsius = 48.2 degrees Fahrenheit

You can do all kinds of conversions using Google. Want to convert grams to ounces, simple, centimeters to inches, again simple. Google is really fantastic.

6. Asking us in Alberta what the night time temps are is a daunting question. In Edmonton, this last month, we have had lows in the 70's(20s C), right down to lows in the 40's(teens c). If you head into the Rockies, the answer can be lows in the 60's to lows in the 30's. If one is close to glaciers, the lows can be in the 20's(-teens C). Just to support the old addage: If you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes.

I thought you wore googles when you snorkle, and you can't snorkle in Canada.
