How hot is it?
Posted at 4:23 PM
On the upside, no new snow is being reported, surely a comfort to us all.
But that's only 38 in European degrees.
Charles, come on up to MT on your World Tour 2003 -- we rarely get above 90 in the summer! And even when it does get hot, it's a DRY heat...
I came out of the office about 5:30 and got in the car and it was like an oven. Thankfully even old Lincoln Town Cars still have a lot of fancy gadgets. I have this button that switches from telling me how many more miles I can go before I run out of gas, how much gas is still on the tank (although they also have a graphic display for that??), two trip odometers, the average mpg that you car has gotten from day one, and an outdoor temp reading. I checked the reading. It said 110. Of course, the car had been sitting in direct sunlight, and I am not sure where the sensor is located, but with all that metal, you can bet it was close to some hot metal someplace. I do not think it was 110, but it was hot. It is hot. This is Texas and it is summer. It gets hot here and we expect it to get hot.
David, I have been to Montana in the summer, and it is nice there. I sat in my car for long periods just looking out at the beautiful landscape, while I waited for the flagman to let our side of traffic pass through the road construction area. It wasn't all that bad, really, the first time, but doing it every fifteen miles or so got to be a pain in the butt.
Tiger, you need to take a drive up the Alaska Highway. All the construction delays and beautiful scenery of Montana -- with $3-a-gallon gasoline thrown in for good measure.
Could be a lot worse. I'm just wondering what 125 degrees even feels like, considering we're still floundering in late winter weather around here:
