    120 degrees. It started cooling off as I drove for a while and dropped to 113 by the time I got home.

    The worst part is that I was getting in the car after spending 4 hours helping a buddy move.

    I remember living in Phoenix it was so hot that the planes couldn't leave Sky Harbor Airport. The air was hot. They had to call the engine reps and get the perimeters changed to adapt. That was some high dollar phone calls. Would love to be there now though.....That way Chris could do stuff to my 'Coma.

    In 01 in Pakastan it was like that in last year in Iraq we saw thoose temps, man that shit sucked when we had our gear on. The only good thing I must say is that is way dry heat compared to the humid shit we get in the South East!

    Ah yes.....I remember that well. There have been a few days in which the planes couldnt take off due to the heat. I have a bet with a buddy that this year we will have 2 days of shut downs.

    Meh....I find the humid areas much cooler than here. I mean, 90* is still 90*. Sure the humidity makes you sweat, but AC still cools ya off pretty quickly.
