    An average summer day for me. LOL
    I went to the grocery store and there was a sign at the door. It said no food or drinks inside.
    ........So I went home.

    That's nuts!

    I'd expect that temperature in Vegas or Phoenix, not up there.

    I carry a hot glue gun in my toolbox at work. Yesterday I noticed the glue sticks had melted. Toasty here too.

    In the early '80's, I was passing through Phoenix in July on my GS. It was over 120. The airplanes could not take off because of the heat and thin air! Even driving at 70MPH, it was intolerable.

    But wherever you are, there's no point in complaining -- it's just going to get worse -- whether it's too much heat or too much water.

    It was on my list to head over to Tampa sometime this coming week for our churches annual brain fry, 1200 miles then camping for several days doesn't like much fun and when it's over another 1,000 miles to get into cooler weather. I'm staying put this summer, too much heat in the east, too dry in the west and with people still on edge over the Chinese Penguin AIDS I'll stay in the AC and sock away some cash from my "gig" jobs.
