You know it's hot when ...

... you temp gauge reads 107 degrees! This was in the middle of Columbia, SC, on I-20 where the interstate is asphalt. It dropped to 104 on the concrete sections but that is still DAMN hot! This is a crazy summer.



Post your hottest temp readings. I think it will be interesting to share.

Obviously not in a BMW, but this is the picture I took last August in Dallas. Notice how fast I'm going. The car was not sitting in a hot parking lot, I'd been driving for about an hour.

How the hell do I change what that thing says? I can't find any "button" to show outside temp. Mine shows range. My * looking button is used to bring up my contacts for my phone.

The button on the end of the signal stick should change what it says

Last year (driving from Vegas to Bishop Cal) thru the Mohave Desert it was 126 Degree F we did fry an egg on the highway LOL

Today here in Ontario Canada it was 38 C (100 F) the hottest day since 1936 ... I heard Al Gore whisper in the light wind breeze "I told you so ... I told you so" LOL

We broke a record also today here in Montréal (35.2C). Considering we had to wear jackets well into June I don't think Al Gore can say "I told you so".

I'm almost cold during the day in the admin building at a nuclear power plant. But on vacation a few years ago I recorded 118 degrees in southern Oregon.

A hell of a week for me to be NJ instead of home in Washington.
I have rental and it posted 109 today.
Can't wait to get back to cloudy dreary Wa.
