Hope everyone is doing okay

Post by Reb Stew on June 27th 2012, 4:48 pm

Weather is about to get really hot. If you are out in this stuff drink plenty of water. 98 one day and calling for 102 the next. I don't remember the last time we seen it over 100 degrees here.

This is one time I'm glad to work inside. Feel sorry for the ones that have to work outside.

I've been setting in this frigid office with a heavy sweatshirt and just freezing. My feet feel like ice cubes. santa When I came in this morning the thermometer was barely reading 70 degrees. scratch Went down to the city pool at lunch to splash around and get warmed up in the sun. sunny Don't have AC in the car or the house and looking forward to getting warmed up. cheers The air quality and the ability to breathe bothers me a ton more than the heat, but breathing is overrated anyway. No Junkyard Jeff and I are planning on checking out the weekly cruise in up in Piqua tomorrow. Hopefully the advertised heat won't keep the car count down too much.

109 yesterday here. My son-in-law pointed out the humidity is so low it's a dry heat and not as bad. I had to remind him it's dry heat in an oven too but the turkey is just as cooked! Twisted Evil Razz

I was roofing (repair calls due to yesterday's high winds), so the bathroom remodel, at my house was interrupted. When I left the last roof, the Raytech gun was reading 152 degrees. Life is good!

I have been doing what I can in the garage but yesterday it was just too hot to thread a long bolt all the way to the head so I went to the hardware store and bought one,the way it was going it would have took a half hour with sweat pouring into my eyes so it was the best 75 cents I spent so far.

We went to Columbus to the hot rod deal over the weekend. They of course said it was the hotest GG's event no record. Out on that blacktop walking around most of the day was a bit warm ro say the least. The interesting part to me was that Saturday the cars that caught my eye were the ones that looked cool (that would be cool in temperature not style) The people in the flat black vehicles riding in aluminum bomber seats looked like they were dying a slow agonizing death. Plenty of Pepsi and Ice Cream to keep the core temperature down. Didn't see anybody pass out but some that looked pretty miserable. Looked for people from here but saw no one. Maybe some of the 1200 pictures later.
