    Just warm for Frosty but record setting for us here. It's shop time, Once again insulation and refrig. a/c there is the best thing I've done lately
    Over at mom's I can adjust the swamp cooler for maximum effect for where I'm working, so it'll be ok there unless humidity becomes just too high.

    I wonder how people in 1896 dealt with that type of heat?

    Perhaps some of those ye olde blocks of ice which they move
    around with those big tongs.

    People were tougher then; My elementary - primary - school had no air conditioning, being closed in the summer it wasn't needed.
    I live 1 1/2 blocks away from this school, I go there to vote, and each classroom now has a window replaced by a swamp cooler.

    Pussies.

    Does anybody know how the story really goes, how the story really goes, or do we all just hum along..?

    We hit 113º at the Scottsdale Airpark. Luckily we're far enough out of the heat island that it's only 95º at 2200.

    But fuck me backwards if it isn't gonna top 115 all this week. And we're not headed to Napa until July 5th!

    Bill, temps are one time I'm never sad that you've beaten us.

    I may or may not have mentioned this but a friend was at the Mayo clinic up there (new kidney) a couple months back and asked me if we ever had spring here.

    He's supposed to come back in August. Poor guy. He just thinks it's hot.

    He did seem to find a cab that would take him to a dispensary when he was here, which being a Texan, he'll never see one there.

    Texan in a cab? That's good news, because I have unilaterally decided that Texas snowbirds are the worst snowbird drivers we get.

    In order of shittiness:

    1. Texas
    2. Nevada
    3. Iowa
    4. Illinois
    5. Idaho

    I would say California and Colorado are tied for being the best (but they still suck). I can only attribute that to a fear of driving off a cliff and plunging to your death to pull any stupid shit. But Texans and their big ass Tahoes and F-245,000s, and shit with like 7 wheels, fuck them.

    It ended up being 115F today and about 4:15 PM or so, the triple transformer on the end of our road decided it didn't want to work anymore,
    and it was about 9:15-ish before they got the power back on, so dinner was fast food dine-in, and we went for ice cream for them after that,
    but a lot of the other time was spent just sitting around and sweating with the pets.

    95F now. AC got blasted for a while to beat back Hades and now we're back on the swamp cooler.

    Technically it did rain this afternoon though if i was the Flash, i could have ran around and caught all of it in a thimble.
    It rained so much the airport a couple miles away from us didn't register anything.

    Mama's sucking down fluids to compensate for the water loss but there's a vodka and something in my future.
