    It's just now starting to get comfortable outside. Currently 91 degrees and sunny, with a "feels like" of 101. Humidity is a little low, but I guess I'll manage. Got some welding projects to get knocked out this afternoon, so it's almost perfect weather for that. A little warmer would be nice, but it isn't raining...so it's a good compromise.

    Yup. I don't even have AC in my truck...pulled it out to unclutter the engine compartment and lighten up my tare weight a bit.

    Now I know the real reason that bulldog is gold. It's the heat stroke discoloring his skin..

    Go west young man.

    16% humidity and 12 mph wind, a wet shirt will cool you more than you want.

    I was outside Quebec late last week, it got down to a balmy 59° overnight. The next morning, at 5:30 a.m. I was coming thru Buffalo and it was already 80°. I live in FL, so I am use to warm weather, but 105+...I cope by staying in the A/C as much as possible.

    Shouldn't be a problem in most trucks. APU, AC.... no problem. Even idling, can run AC. No problem?
    I'm driving at night. In a motel during day. No big deal. Looking for an apartment for second home while at work.
    In dry heat. All you have to do is get soaking wet. Makes the world a whole different place.
