I hope that's sarcasm there.... I'll take a dry heat over humid heat any day... I spent my weekend out in that heat, sweat just standing there, although I didn't do much of that... Sat morning pulled the trans out of my T/A again... pump definitely went south, and the converter doesn't look any too healthy. Then I helped a friend move out of his shop, they already had the house done, so I got in on the dirty work... Sunday brought more outside work, putting away the stuf we loaded out of his shop the night before, then loading a bunch of appliances for scrap...

Yeah Fellro, that was sarcasm. It's funny how many people don't get that it's the humidity that makes it rough. Especially in the middle of farm country when all the corn (and weeds) are pollinating.

That's the lousy thing about intenet, can't always tell the way something is said... Just a little while ago, got the heat warning, 113 degree figure with the humidity... just freaking lovely, I have things outside I should do, in the beating sun of course... I have to give a plug on my truck though, running with a load, a/c on, and it still hardly shows warming up on the factory guage, gotta love those diesels...
