Huh, I learned something from this. I learned that you can type "define:word" (replace "word" with the word you seek) in the Google search and get a listing of websites that define that word. I also learned that this does not work in Yahoo search.cschmit said:Actually I find it funny how everyone keeps listing the Humidity in their postings when really it is the Dew Point that makes it feel so sticky and humid out.
I hear you, Eric. My buddy works in a factory up north cutting with plasma and welding with tungsten all day. That's hot work.EJB said:Right now its 94 with a dew point of 75.
Brutal, 94 aint horrible but the dew point is excessive.
It aint easy in a warehouse, under a tin roof with actual hard work.

Situational awareness...as a medically-retired airline pilot.
I think about an old friend...we go back a LONG WAY.
He's a Reservist... 40 years old and in Baghdad.
Yesterday, it was 112 degrees, witn a viz of 6 miles, so you KNOW the air quality is horrible.
Can you imagine...dressed to the "nines", with your finger on the trigger, no place for relief, crappy air, and scared to death?
He laughs and tells me that he was on the bike (No, not Motorcycle) a little while ago, and his situation is MUCH BETTER now.
Keep 'yo head DOWN.

I've been out west where at least your sweat evaporates to cool you a little bit. Down south, NOTHING evaporates on your body. Summer can be quite rough in south La.
