Asphalt can get over 170F on the hottest days here. I'm surprised the dirt is so high.

I think I know what's going on here. You actually have it pointed at the Mooninite, Ignignokt.



And watch your stuff. He will confuse you with insults and then steal anything in sight.

The drought out west has lasted so many years that the soil is dried out. The energy that used to evaporate a bit of moisture from the soil now simply makes it hotter.

Happy to live right here in NH where it can get hot and humid in the summer, but we can always find some cool shade. My deck is on the south side of the house. As the sun arcs its way across the sky, my deck is constantly bathed in sunlight, and thusly gets pretty hot. Its always hotter than the ambient air temperature - by about 20 degrees. It can be 73 in the house, and 93 on the deck. If I step outside barefooted, it'll burn my feet. Interestingly, my Polly dog doesnt seem to mind the hot deck on her paws.

Its also interesting to me that I've been quite chilled lately. Oh no, seriously... I'm a chill dude, but I've been chilled a lot recently. Must be because of my age. My mitochondria isnt doing their job, obviously. Maybe I need to switch out my mitochondria for midichlorians?

For cooling down I like taking a piece of ice and rubbing it on the palm side of my wrist until it melts.

I raked hotmix in Phoenix one summer for a parking lot paving outfit. We'd start at dark AM and finish the day around 2 or 3 PM. Salt pills were essential. I swayed a little dizzy a couple times but I didn't fall out..I found shade and sat.

I was much younger. I don't think I'd much like doing it at 70 years old..

Heading back from high altitude New Mexico to the South Texas oven. Was off the grid for awhile then I heard on the radio the record breaking heat in California and Arizona. I know climate change is real by seeing the changes on South Texas beaches while surf fishing over the years . Not good IMO.

It's going to be very moderate in LA compared to the Pacific Northwest in the next couple days. Seattle's expecting three straight days of 100° heat, almost 30° above normal.

Heat like this isn't as much of a problem in a lot of the country where people have AC.

...until a blackout from everyone blasting their AC. Or for people who have to work outside. Or people who don't have homes with AC to blast.
