It is so Hot!!!

Post by zelph » Tue Jul 19, 2011 10:20 pm

The weather was dreadfully hot while camping. It was so hot I made my oatmeal breakfast with cold water :mrgreen:

The last 2 days have topped the 100 degree mark here in Illinois. Had to come home early from my family camp-out :roll:

It is so hot...........Smokey the Bear took his hat off. :lol:

How hot has it been in your neck of the woods?

It's been so hot here that...No it hasn't! :evil: ..The weather has barely reached 70 on very few days and I don't think it's broken 80 yet this year.I don't think the high country is even going to melt off this year for hiking... :roll:

95 in the shade :evil: and the heat index feels like 110. I can't even enjoy riding the motorcycle except on the way to work when the temps are in the low 70's :roll: It is supposed to be 98 tomorrow. I'm surte glad I don't live in the desert. :)

I was wrong..the wife read in the paper that Seattle officially has had 78 minutes over 80 degrees this year..10 miles north of us they haven't even hit 80 yet;so we may be in the same boat as up north.I've been spending a lot of time in the shop..so it really doesn't matter...

It is a choice of two evils. The compressor locked up on my commuter car so the bike offers total breeze as opposed to a baked interior with no wing vents. I think I would welcome riding in a downpour right now :o :lol:
