#1: Fun in the Texas sun

Posted on 2006-07-22 20:59:03 by CrashTestDummy

I can't image 140 degrees in Iraq, and won't even pretend to get
into a pissing contest with the fellas serving over there, but here in
Texas we've just had 11 consecutive days in triple digits. Every
"high" for July so far has been 93 or higher, and it looks like that
trend will continue.

You have to go back to June 1st to find a day that wasn't in the
90s (it was 88-degrees). Our first 100-degree day was April 17th
(we've had thirteen total 100+ degree days so far this year).

At 107, it was the hottest day of the year this last Monday when I
was performing a yard spray at a big house in Trophy Club and sweating
like a pig. It was 102 yesterday while I trenched around a small house
in Wylie with a pick axe in the blazing sun. And sweated my ass off.

Today it's *only* supposed to be 93-94 degrees due to a "cold
front." But my thermometer already says 96.1 degrees (I'm not near the
airport where the official readings are taken). The overnight "lows"
have averaged 74 degrees for July, and 83 degrees for the last 11
days. I sure hope Idaho is a bit of a reprieve from this crap.

It's actually not bad outside today! And you can tell the difference
between 93 and 107!

It's 100 degrees here at my house in Milpitas, CA according to my
calibrated porch thermometer. I just sweated a gallon of water
mounting a new trailer tire and I still gotta go back out there and
put it on the trailer. Breaking the bead was a real PITA. I think
I'll wait and work by artificial light later this evening.

It's only about 5 degrees cooler in north Idaho and WA but it still
feels like riding in an open oven. Hotter tomorrow (103)! Youch.

You can't say crap online - remember that.

Yeah, it's funny but when the boy and I decided to work on the 50
yesterday that side of the house had become shaded so we just decided
to work out on the grass despite having an air conditioned shed right
in front of us. And it was still probably high 90s out.

Sometimes, just for fun, I'll go out to my stifling shed and close
the door and see just how long I can work before having to turn on the
A/C in there. I think my record is 2 minutes.

It's 93 inside here, we went to the pool but the water is like 85 so
it wasn't that refreshing. Beer is refreshing.

Typical SoCal weather. Yesterday, the heavily populated areas of Burbank and
Woodland Hills (L.A. suburbs) hit record highs of 108 and 119 respectively.
By contrast, the town of Adelanto located in the Mojave desert where I was
riding yesterday only got to 107. Go figure.
