    Heat wave

    We saw our highest temperature of the year 109 F at 4500'.

    Ain't quite as hot as Phoenix, 119

    Friday, I was working in southern Utah, it was a comfy 115

    Vegas is 2 hrs away, they hit a record with 117

    Stay out of the heat, have lots of refreshing, frosty beverages...

    110+ in the Mohave Desert was enough for me last year. No thanks.

    For some reason, NC hasn't gotten too hot this year and June is pretty much over. I don't think we've even reached 95 degrees yet. Hope it stays like this for two more months!

    Not quite 117, but we'll be hovering around 110 in my parts for the next few days.

    After 109 it doesn't really matter that much. It's just too hot. Last Summer it got up to 126 one day I happened to be riding around on the bike. Didn't really feel much different than 110.

    100 degrees is uncomfortable.........32 degrees is MISERABLE. I'll take the heat over the cold every time.
    thephanatik and zacii like this.

    I disagree. I can always put more clothes on, but I ain't a nudist. Below 50 for me is tolerable, above 90 is not. I hate heat, especially humid heat. At least you're dry in AZ. Out in the east, 80% humidity adds about 10 degrees to the mind. We had 103 highs this past thursday with a heat index of 117. I can't wait for October.

    Exact opposite for me. I haven't even owned a winter coat since I was 12. And I'm useless in the summer. And I think I coined the phrase "I'm sweating like its 40 degrees out"

    I am really sorry I am trying to start a thread and I am in distress as I learned this morning that 19 fire fighters died yesterday and as the tears run down my face I can't seem to put in proper place so bare with me. These were young men and women and many I knew so if you could say a prayer for the families and if you have a flag maybe drop it to half mast. The way they died is terrible as it was last ditch when you pull the fire shelter and you pray the fire passes you by but when it does not the 200 plus heat cooks your lungs. These were my extended family and there was nothing I could do to protect them so please wish them Gods speed as they gave all. Thank you and I hope I am not to far out of place.

    The extended forecast for Accuweather says that much of July should be about ~80F for a daytime high, which is well below normal.

    But it's a dry heat.....so it isn't that really hot!

    People used to tell me that all the time when I lived in SW OK. 105-115 with a 20-30 MPH wind was like living in a blast furnace. At the time I was doing aircraft maintenance. The heat rising from the tarmac was 15+ degrees hotter. Was nothing to go up inside a closed up airplane and the temp gauges would be pegged out at 180 degrees.

    I don't buy into the "dry heat" as much as most folks, but there is a substantial difference. Even in the shade with a breeze, a humid 100 is hot. However a dry 100, in the shade, with a breeze ain't that bad to me.
