    97 today, heat index of 111 -- so I spent an hour or so at lunch grilling burgers and all-beef dogs for the office picnic over an 8-burner propane grill.
    after the first batch, I decided 4o burgers at a time was too many burgers once the grease started bubbling out.
    scorched some hair off, but not too bad.

    pouring like a mad fiend at the moment.
    yesterday it got up to 98 with a RF of 111. at 11 PM, the RF finally dropped below 100.
    today topped out at 84 at 11AM - then the clouds rolled in and the temps started slowly creeping down.
    at 7PM it was 77 - when the rain started, currently it's 71.

    Y'all should post where you are from with the temperature so I'll know how sorry to feel for you.

    We're on the road this week, beating the heat by playing in the Buffalo National River and waiting for the cool front to come through.

    79° here. Beautiful day. Got home from work, and spent 3 hours burning the brush pile.

    American south west, SoCal in my case, the I.E., east of Lost Angels.
    To loosely paraphrase the weather guy; "High pressure from the four corners area has moved west, combining with moisture during the evenings coming north from the Gulf of California has created a tropical heating effect...."

    My BK62 just arrived! Excited to get out in the backyard and make a fire tonight and test her out. Been a while since I got a new Becker. This one is unlike any others with the wood, leather and nekkid blade...

    see?
    this is what happens when you talk about a new knife and don't include pictures -- you kill snark!
