Go to accessories and letter map. Copy the degree sign and paste it into whatever. Or hit Alt+0176 °

I was there two weeks ago - that humidity and high temp makes it worse than Singers.

I hear that. I lived Morgan City, LA for 7 years before coming over here. I also did my military basic training a Ft. Polk, La in July & August. Humidity at 98-100% most of the time and the temps right up there as well.

They didn't call AIT (Advanced Infantry Training) 'Tigerland' for nothing. It was as close as you could come to the jungles of VN on the US mainland.
