I had a few minutes this morning to cross brace the transmission mount. I also welded down the new center cab mount tube - I still have to cut the big notch in the original. It was SO hot though, I don't know how you southern guys stand it. 29C with a humidex of 37!

Giant sweat glands, lots of ice water, don't get in a hurry.

Heat index of 41C today. I saw a dog chasing a cat ... and they were both walking!

Everything goes a bit slower in the south, doesn't it? That's been my experience at least

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

Work a little, rest a little, work a little, rest a lot! Older I get, the less I like the heat or the cold. Spring and fall are my time of the year.

Been in the mid 90ís here last couple of weeks. Thatís F, not C. I canít figure that C stuff out!

Looks good Bill.
Seems like it's hot everywhere.
The humidity has been high up here which used to be a rarity for us.
Makes it a little tough on old Torchies pumper.
Be sure to keep hydrated, Bill. If you don't. Your blood literally turns to sludge.
Stay cool everyone.

Thanks Torchie! Due to these meds he has me on, my doctor told me flat out - DRINK more liquids! I've been better at it lately. I appreciate the reminder!

Take care of yourself, Bill!

I don't have any heart issues that I know of, but I've accomplished "heat exhaustion" more times than I care to remember. Those many events have rendered me "heat sensitive" to the point where I'll get physically ill if I'm "warmed" a few degrees above normal. I can't imagine my condition coupled with a heart condition... the two combined would probably finish me!

Mine, too. I'm still looking for the place where it's 63į F all year 'round... 40% humidity, maximum. (Humidity is the killer. A "dry heat" is bearable and a "dry cold" is equally bearable, extremes excluded.)

Degrees Celsius x 1.8 + 32 = Degrees Fahrenheit. Does that help?

I knew there was a formula, just too much figurin' for me!

When you grow up under one system, use that system all your life, and then someone tries to change systems on you, it's hard on an old dog to learn new tricks! Our Congress tried to push us into using the metric system back in the late 70's early 80's, we fought back and they blinked. I sorta like metric bolts, measured in mm, they seem to be a closer tolerance than standard bolts. But those oddballs that metric nor standard wrenches fit drive me crazy!

I hear ya Bama.

If I'm not mistaken, Canada "officially" implemented the metric system in 1978. It was in the works for a number of years and took many more years to become fully integrated.

Anyhow, I was schooled before the metric system and I still think in miles and gallons. The only metric measure I can comprehend or relate to, is the temperature... because it's been posted and reported in Celsius for 41 years.

P.S. Twenty some years ago, I was collaborating with a cabinet maker and he wanted measurements in millimeters. I asked, why? He said millimeters are more accurate than a sixteenth. Hmmm... I understand a mm is smaller than a sixteenth, but I failed to understand the logic... you're either on the mark, or the next one over.
