We experienced an extreme heat wave the week of the July 4th holiday. The heat index got over 105 degrees ten days in a row. Extreme temperature combined with the poor air quality that comes with living in a metropolitan area made going outside a hazard.
Normally I’d go to the lake to escape the heat, but it was too hot to be messing with any sort of smoke and gas fumes. This past weekend we had a series of thunderstorms that broke the heat wave. Now we have our normal 75 to 80 degree weather that is far more bearable. I’ll be heading to the lake just as soon as I replace the 2 cycle oil in my outboard engine.
