OUCH, (the heat index) Around where I am (near Flint MI) they are talking heat index numbers that would make good voltmeter readings when checking shore power.. And when the electrician replaced my circuit breakers yesterday he commented the volt readings were not all that good (112) (We are in brown out).

I am on 50 amps and was to the point where the A/C's (one each leg) Fridge and ONE kitchen appliance and CLICK of darkness. Took 'em 24 hours to get me new breakers, Electrician had to wear gloves removing the old ones they were so hot (I could smell 'em they were that hot) and that's with just the 13.5 amp A/Cs on (And the fridge and converter which don't draw enough to matter.
Home is where I park it!

It was really hot in Anacortes yesterday - 79 F. Humidity wasn't too bad - around 50% - and we had a nice breeze.

WOW, Thanks everyone,

It is better here today. Only a heat index of 120 now. It looks like I'm planning a trip to Alaska for next summer. Gotta love those Alaska summer temps.

Here in Newark, DE the temp hit about 94 this afternoon. We are doing asbestos removal on a rooftop and the heat index is 125+. Crews are on 15 min work, 45 min rest cycles until sun down.

At the camp ground (in Woodlands RV Park) the temps in the trees topped out at around 89 with a pleasant low of 78 this morning. Love the trees.

Our overnight stay in Santa Nella in northern Kalifornia was really bad planning on my part as temps soared to 117. As our frozen Margaritas began melting, I had paranoid visions of our 4-door Norcold exploding into a huge ball of fire!!.

A few hours morning drive away it cooled way down to 65 along the Pacific coast by San Francisco.

That looks about normal.
