Mid 90's here in E. Tn which means heat + humidity = miserable

I have also been working outside most of this last week which means that I look like a lobster, I'm so sun burnt I think I'm starting to glow in the dark!!!

Here in South Florida its already in the mid ninties. This is a slight bit above average . If it goes into the low 70s here its a cold wave. Sometime I get into my car after its parked outside a while, and its 111. You have to leave door open a while, then get in. If you have leather seats you could burn your legs sometimes if wearing shorts. 

         Then again if it were not for Air Conditioning and a Mouse named Mickey there would not be a Florida.

You have it easy!  Here in Arizona, temps inside a vehicle can reach as high as 175 degrees.  I've actually seen a windshield blown out from the heat inside the car.  Oh and I'm a survivor of the hottest day in modern record in the Phoenix area.  It was 122 degrees.  Balmy weather don't ya think?  lol

Here is one for everyone.  About 10 years ago we had a food poisening outbreak in a very good seafood rest in West Palm Beach.. About 60 guest were infected after eating on a  Saturday night. No employees were affected?

     .They all ate different things from the menu  Our health dept could not figure it out.. Some of us did.. On every guest table there was a shaker of dry housemade  MOJO spice.  Every night at closing the A/C unit was turned to a higher setting. Moisture therefore condensed inside the shaker getting the spice slightly wet and ideal for mold growth.

     The staff sat at a counter in another section of the place with no mojo on tables when they took their breaks and ate. This was cause of violent poisonings with many people in hospital for up to a week ,in particular seniors and kids.

     The place closed and then reopened but was never the same .It finally filed a chapter 11. Just shows you no matter how careful, you can never be to careful. We  had another  one, also years ago at the famous Breakerss Hotel in Palm Beach  which they managed to confine to a small spot in newspapers. Gravlox, which was not done correctly was the culprit,. People were spread out on the lawn, and were affected almost right away, a lot of ambulances

Triple digits today.

Replacing roof from hail storm.

Thank goodness our clay is drying out. Cutting the lawn is less bumpy. You can now push the whole mower down in and out of the cracks.

One more big hail and rain and my foundation should be sufficiently settled in my neighbors yard to eliminate my tax.

Only got to 99⁰ today. 

Hit the pool right after Doctor’s appointment and didn’t put on any sunblock…OOPPPPPS.  That wasn’t the best idea.

I think we are on our 16th straight triple digit day. I am very fortunate to be the only pool on the block with shade trees. Although not real cool .The others pools are just right for sous vide. My son is coming home with some college buddies for lunch tomorrow. American Ice Company just left, they dumped a 300 lbs. block into the pool. I might have to take a dip before bed. At 11:30 pm last night it was 97 degrees.
