Uhmm, yeah, no. That's just ridiculously hot! 8O

Months of August and Sept here in the KC area will see heat indexes of 107-115 and it plain sucks! I remember being out with the scout troop camping where it cooled off at high to a low of 94F :help: Trying to sleep whilst drowning in your own sweat sucks.....

Straw hats, loose cotton clothes, chair in the shade, liquor on the rocks.

Just that simple :)

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

My home State is on fire! More than 100 fires burning along the east coast of Queensland.

This is something I have NEVER seen before in my 60+ years.

So far no loss of life that I am aware off. Only a couple of homes lost but lots of destruction of sheds, fences, vehicles and machinery etc.

Unlike the recent fires in California, these are burning in areas of relatively low population density.
