    Some years ago, or perhaps I should say decades ago, I went to a family reunion in Texas. My Mom and my youngest brother and sister drove down from Oregon to her fathers place near Sacramento and from there we took grand dad's Winnebago south to hit I 40. While crossing the desert near Lake Havasu the local radio station broad cast the current temperature, 128 degrees. Even in the coach with both ac units running full tilt, it was way too hot.

    Wow!! That's hot. Don't envy you at all.

    Mark Twain in his book Roughing It (I think) talked about soldiers who had served in an army fort in that area, died and didn't make it to heaven. They had grown so used to the heat that they asked for blankets to keep them warm.

    Meanwhile, we'll be roasting in the low 70's tomorrow and 60's the rest of the week.;)

    Since they tend to use Celsius in Greece that equates to 168.08 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Some decades back I worked Palo Verde NGS for a couple of years. Summer was tough as you had to keep a welding glove handy to open your car in the parking lot ! Not unusual to have car windows explode from the heat . And I always kept a motel blanket in the trunk to throw on the car seat before sitting !

    Not sure about that. These weather pages give the option of Farenheit or Celsius. I just checked out the weather page:

    My melting point is anything above 80 deg. I don't know if I could ever live in AZ.

    I agree. I top out around 70 and tend to puddle up after that.

    I cursed myself.
    It is in the upper 80s but big boomers are coming so it should cool down.
    I like to know why I wait till the hottest days to pick vegies.

    Many years ago in Montana my pregnant wife wanted some fresh strawberries and she told me about a local farm that was open to picking. It was hot but I went. When I got home I found out that it was over 100 degrees. I've never picked them since. ;)
