Default That's about enough!!

I think that's about all we can stand! I don't know if TS Debby is responsible for this or not, but if we ever get a summer thunderstorm out of this it's gonna rip off some roofs!!

Bumped 100 here today and humidity was out the top to boot.
I got everything done "OUTSIDE" that I was going to do between 05:00 and 10:00 when the temp went above 90.

I can do without this wx in June ! ,,,,, wonder what Aug. is going to be like ?

It's been a while since anybody has mowed their grass.

It seem the rotation of TS Debby pulled dry air from north-west of here and now it's being baked by the sun. We are not getting the gulf stream we usually get. I had to set up a little sprinkler system to help the air conditioner...it was overheating and shutting down. And the airplanes today were taking the entire runway to get off the ground.

It's hot in Colorado also. Got down to 40 last night, but will be 80 today. Still windy. The firefighters are having a rough time with this changing weather.
Wade, having flown for many years, I'm all too familiar with density altitude.

Hit 98 where I'm at.. I have seen 105 in the past and survived,, On a train car, A vintage train car, With Air conditioning that was NOT WORKING., The Train was pulled by a genuine STEAM engine.. An "Old Black Man" as freight engines were often called (Cause they were painted all black).

Never got to ride beingd the last main line steam passenger engine.

Depending on the TV station you ask, it's going up to 106 in places around here today.

When I parked my RV this time I noticed that the power box has 3 30 amp outlets and only 1 is in use.. No open sites near so I broke out the cheater box and cheated.. Alas, got caught so now I'm down to one 30 amp line..

Was nice while it lasted though

Strange thing though when the manager turned off the 2nd line,, All I lost was the secondary power converter that I noticed (ALso one A/C but I did not notice that,, Wife did when she got back)..

At least they are letting me stay here.
