    The position was earned, right? Maybe it'll inspire the welders on the floor to put in that extra effort.

    I know what you're saying though. I feel bad sending my guys up in the attics is the crazy South Florida summer heat but then I remember that I used to be the first one to volunteer for summer attic duty because I hated to have to listen to the other dudes bitch and complain. Lol

    Yes it was earned. And honestly I miss it so much. I truly love the welding field and being a welder was way more gratifying than being the boss in a lot of ways and had waaay less stress. Stay cool everyone.

    Yeah. My mom grew up in South Florida in the 50s and 60s and there was no central A/C. She said NOBODY wanted to live in Florida. It was a swamp!

    We're experiencing the heat wave with high humidity as well... Although here in Erie, PA, is still cooler than most of the rest of the state.

    Stay hydrated; Be cool and stay cool! :cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks Garth. Forecast a chilly 101 in Richmond, Virginia today. Bothered me less when I was younger. But been here awhile and used to it - somewhat. Think cool thoughts.

    These last few days have been unseasonably delightful here in East Podunk. It started when a couple days ago when I went to work and it was like a pleasant October morning - temperature in the upper 60s (pretty much unheard of for July), sunny and breezy - getting up to the upper 80s for the daytime high, but with relatively low humidity (another rarity) so it was actually pleasant to be outside. Pretty much the same yesterday and today.

    Almost reminds me of the summer days I spent as a kid in Michigan and Ohio. Like we swapped for the week or something. I hope you're enjoying our July weather, because I'm really liking yours.

    Yeah same here- Kind of wish it would heat up a bit actually - Tuesday morning I think I had 58 ~ morning drive in to work today was 60. Pretty insane for almost Aug.

    But I'm sure in no time at all we'll be back to 80 by 8 (a.m.), with highs in the mid-90 to low 100s, and more an enough humidity to keep the sweat from evaporating, even on the hottest days.
