I'm refinishing a cedar deck! I didn't know I could still take it like that. It's brutal as it is, let alone this heat. You're not supposed to apply the finish "in direct sunlight." WTF I waited until 4:30 and the sun was just going behind the trees. Sweat was pouring off my head onto the bare wood and I was worried it would spot :lol: I must have drank a gallon of water, I had a salt shaker in my truck and ate some salt a few times :lol:

It was hot here of course too but we're up on hill so it's a few degrees colder, no urban heat island effect, usually a little bit of breeze and I live in cinder block house that is painted a light color. It stays surprising cool inside. I have this weird situation of deciding whether or not to close the windows when it starts to heat up in the morning.

That's what I usually do. I don't open any windows - otherwise it would get even hotter inside - but I leave the porch door open so the cats can go in & out as they wish. By 2pm the house starts roasting, so I close the door & fire up the A/C. Stays pretty comfortable in here most of the morning.

Yesterday it hit about 90°. Spent most of it under that damn Trooper trying to get the damn splines to line up on the tranny. What a waste of a day. Got hot, sweaty, & covered in grease .... and all I accomplished was to make EVEN MORE work for myself by busting a couple stupid coolant lines ... :mad:

It could probably be done using the same type of system a gas or kerosene refrigerator uses. :idea:

How well it would work and how economical it would be I have no idea.

I don;t know what happened to it but I had this little refrigerator that might hold about a six pack designed to be mounted under the dash of a car. It was probably from the 50's or 60's. Brand new still in the box, you had to splice into the gas line. How is that for safe having a gas line running into the interior of the car?

We hit 98 degrees here yesterday. That was our high for the year (so far). A chilly 84 degrees here right now.

I can't imagine 107 degrees.

I've seen consistent temperatures like that in Arizona and Alabama. Arizona wasn't bad at all because there was 0 humidity but Alabama........... :shock: I don't know how they live with it. You'd walk out the door and it was like someone putting this giant weight on your chest.
