Just saw this on CNN.com. Food for thought in the coming weeks, especially for our brothers and sisters in the midwest.

Stay safe, stay hydrated.

Meh. It's summer it gets hot.

Not looking forward to walking from the train to the lakefront next week for a client.

For me it's the humidity. I like furnace hot, but I sweat through a shirt on the walk when it's humid.

Maybe I'll grab a divvy or an Uber.

It's nothing I haven't lived through. I lived through the 1995 heatwave in Milwaukee, and the one in 1998 when the air didn't move, and 13 years in Arkansas where it was like breathing underwater, going into 140 degree attics to run cable and internet lines. Here in Georgia it isn't so bad, but it'll probably get much worse.

Try wearing 30 pounds of gear plus armor in Alabama. I've lost ten pounds in a week

"Excessive Heat Warnings" have started popping up on the various weather services, I'm sure the local
news will be wall-to-wall with apocalypse stuff.

The neighbor has a black asphalt driveway, I might try the egg fry thing just for snicks.

The highest I've personally experienced was 109 in Arizona.  It actually got to 112 that day but
I didn't get outside until the temps started dropping in the evening.  It literally felt like an oven
and I actually enjoyed it.

It hit 106 with like 1500% humidity down in MIWG when we were there, that's a lot worse.

((*sigh*))

And so begins the parade of emails, both original and forwarded, telling us about how when it's hot you
should drink water and try to get cool.

And it will keep happening until people stop dying of heat-related issues to such a degree as they do now.

I spend a bit of time in Oklahoma each year. It is hot in the summer. Keep the AC on and if you need to, change your shirt. It has only been like this for a few hundred thousand years. .
