    Default Hot, and Hotter, and HOTTER!

    Well, it went right on past Hot, D@mn Hot, to Incredibly we're all going to die HOT today. I don't know what the temperature actually was. The news said 102 but I don't think they went outside to check. Forecast for 103 tomorrow. I'll be working inside tomorrow.

    dry or humid?
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Last week it was humid and hot so dehydration would set in because I was sweating it out. Friday, Sat and today, it was dry with the wind blowing so the lack of humidity was causing dehydration from having the water evaporated out of my tissues. Either way it was miserable.

    OK Alan, its summer, mid July, and you are in Texas.

    You didn't expect this??

    And you have lived there for how many years?
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    Knowing the freight train is coming doesn't lessen the impact when it finally hits you.

    Actually, we expect higher temps than this but after it gets to scalding hot it all feels the same.

    And,

    Heat that I used to shrug off, is getting to be debilitating.

    I share your pain. (have I heard that somewhere before?)

    Heat that used to make me sweat now makes me sweat, choke, gasp, and claw for breath.

    I walk out the door and instantly think "There ain't enough air out here, someone replaced it with water!"

    Actually, Kyrat, I think they replaced it with Folger's crystals.
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    I traveled a lot when I worked. A lot of trips to Tampa and Dallas. A lot. The first thing I did when I checked into a hotel was turn the thermostat down. If you could hang beef in the room, it was just right.

    Damn that was very hot, I lived in a tropical country but it never reached that kind of temperature. That was very hot your can even fry eggs in the road. Thank God that even we don't have winter, we don't experience that heat. It is better to work indoors. Working outdoors will result in heat exhasution and maybe heat stroke.

    I hear they really like Spam in the South Pacific.
