Default This heat is getting ridiculous

Check out this weeks forecast ! Probably nothing to Mike Stringer ,as I suspect Texas is like this all summer?
Fires are prevalent all over also , and no rain in site . Well lighting seems to be the cause of most of the fires anyways .
Luckily there’s a cold front coming in by the weekend

37° C? That's 98° F - that's a cool wave, Rick. Mike's not the only one - we had 105° a couple of weeks ago. That's about 41° C to you.

I remember 40 years ago in downtown Kelowna my car thermometer was bouncing back and forth between 44 and 45. We've hit 36 or 37 so far this summer which is still too hot for us.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

103-105 here all the last two weeks. Going to cool down to 96 this coming weekend. Those darn Arizonans just won't push their monsoons this way.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Story- A church member remarked that church attendance would increase if the church were air-conditioned. The minister said he knew of one place that wasn't air-conditioned and its attendance was holding up quite nicely.

My senior year in high school we had a heat wave in Birmingham that saw 102, 103, 103, and 105 plus 100% humidity over 4 consecutive days. A church sign board on the way to downtown from where I lived had the words "You think this is hot".

It's all relative; I worked in the Western Canada Steel smelter the Summer I finished High school. I was told the air temp. reached 240F after we did a pour.
About the maximum you can dial up in a sauna...but no humidity. We sweated like pigs!
