Currently 103 F in Minnesota. I am used to working outside and all, but I'll take -25 F over this anyday. Oh - oh, gotta go. Wife just showed up and she claims she's melting. :big:

Actual air temperature a few minutes ago was 103 degrees F. When you factor in the humidity, the "feels like" temperature is at 112 here now.
This is 6 days in a row, and tomorrow the news folks are saying more records are going to be broken.

I am ready for cooler weather!

This is the weeked the NHRA fellows show up at our local track, the wife and I deciced to go yesterday to watch( her idea, not mine ). It was hotter than a titainium clutch can after a 4 second pass. I don't know what the actual temp was but it was hot. Lots of sunblock and bottled water kept us from melting though. The track temp was 132 F at 4:00 in the afternoon. Other than the temps, no track records this year I'm afraid. Dave

Just reached 100 Degrees F here.



I did NOT buy that thermometer, it was on the garage when I bought the house.
Looks like that garage needs some repainting.
Oh well, far too hot to worry about that today. ;)

A storm just came through here that dropped the temperature to 75F.

That storm triggered a microburst that hit about 15 miles north of us where my
sister lives. I can't get a hold of them and all three highways leading to there are blocked
with downed trees and power lines.

I started this thread as kind of a joke.
Now I'm reading at least 30 heat related deaths have been confirmed so far.
And it's only July......

It hit mid 70's today. over the next 10 days, according to weather.com, our highest should be about 77. we are also looking at humidity in the 80%+ range, so that's making it feel hotter than it is, I suppose. We're anticipated to get more rain starting the 16th.

I can't stand heat. Even this mid-70's is too much for me... give me anything in the 50-mid60's range and I'm happy, preferably even raining a bit.

I do not envy those of you stuck in the worst of the heat wave hitting the majority of the US. The temps i mention for here are very mild, our records are in the 90's for July, and we've not come anywhere near that this year.

Waaaay too hot to work in the garage. The boss gave us the option of having Thurs, and Fri. off for the holiday weekend.(as well as the 4th). Ended up closing, no one wanted to work. Upper 90's and high humidity in northern OH. Today(Sundy) is supposed to hit ONLY 87. Hot again by the end of the week though.
