Gosh It's Hot!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

OK guys, I've had enough of this weather already!!!!! It ain't even "mid-summer" yet!!!!:duh::ahhh:It's been hot here since the Memorial Day weekend.......give or take a few days in there. This past weekend, my retriever club had our regular hunt test..........it was miserably hot. I hate running dogs in that weather. :pant:However; since last week Thursday, we've been over 95* everyday since. Monday thru today at my house have been over 100*.........with little or no wind!!!!!! Tuesday hit 103.5 on my digital thermometer, yesterday, 106.7 and todays temp is what you see in my pix as of 12:40PM on Thursday!!!!:pant: It'll be at least what yesterday was. The round thermometer is on my East facing deck and it's not in the sun, but catching all the radiating and reflecting heat off my deck!!!!:stuned:I'll take -20* over this crap any day!!!!:thumbup2::2cents:

OK, at 3:50PM, here's the picture. Sorry for the crappy pic, but I didn't want to touch the thermometer and skew the reading. I took 4 pix, and this was the best. I think you can see 110 in the middle display!!!:pant::duh::banghead:This really sucks!!:2cents::smart:

Its been between 98 and 101 her in Iowa for alomost 2 weeks. The humidity has been a little merciful at 75%, but it is still miserable. I cant deal with -20* any better than I can 100*.

Between 0*F and 32*F I'm happy... T Shirt and jeans weather.Below 0*F its time to get out the winter clothes...Anything above 60*F is hot and its time for shorts and a tank top.100*F+ weather its time to go hide in the river or basement of the house. :whistle:

BRING ON THE HEAT! Been 100+ for weeks now. I love going to work at 5 or 6am or whenever and it being a perfect 80*, windows down...so nice, especially last week when i was being sent to a place 45 min away, I always left early and took the scenic route. Only bad thing is I work next to this cooling tower and its so hot by 10am that it's hard not to jump in, but I don't mind the scorching heat. I hate the cold, I would move to death valley in an instant. Actualllly I video taped that cooling tower.

Ethanol plant. Runs off two 200HP motors. Uh I think I got a pic of the whole contraption. I was standing behind that little shed in the video. That horizontal pipe is some 30" diameter. post-45-138698189715_thumb.jpg

Oh... Diesel here locally is 3.599 not bad for being in the sticks... :whistle:

What's up with Riggins having the best fuel prices? I filled up there on Wednesday and was shocked at how low it was. $3.80ish in Boise still.

We have 3 smaller versions of your one big cooling tower. I work at a titanium tetrichloride plant and we use them to cool our 3 chlorinators. Chlorinators are like big upright furnaces so to speak. They inject coke ( like fine coal) and titanium ore along with mass amounts of oxygen. Once the temps get up tp about 1800*F they start injecting liquid chlorine and titanium tetrichloride vapors begin forming towards the top of the chlorinator. The vapors are blown out the top through 30" offgas piping and sent to condensation and eventually purification to be converted into a liquid. This liquid is the base for all titanium metals, among other things. ISX, it is VERY tempting to jump in the bottom of those towers on a hot day! Ive thought many times of doing it myself!:evilgrin:

That would be neat to see. I don't know what this one cools, ferminter or something. They do have this one huge oven thing that has a maybe 4ft diameter fun that sucks air in (loud as all get out and will suck you against it if your not careful) and that air feeds this fire, you can see in it through this little peephole and all you see is a huge fireball. No clue what thats for haha.

OMG!!!! Were you a "breech" birth and the doctor smacked on the head a bit too hard; because he couldn't tell one end from the other????!!!!! The way I see it is this.........you can always add layers of clothes and burn more fuel to keep warm. You can only strip down so far before the police come and get your naked butt and haul you off to the fun house!!!

Boise hit 100°, but I only saw 99.8° at our place. Down to 95° now as a thunderstorm is moving in. It feels pretty humid, but I just checked and it's at 14%...

I agree!! However, I am not sure "fun house" is the correct term when you show up nekked...
