Didn’t have the luxury of being cool today. We started on a metal roof this morning but were done by 11. Spent the afternoon setting LVL beams. But we are getting a little break from last week. Only been around 92 the last few days so that’s better than what it was by far. I’ve only spent a couple weeks of my life in Texas so it’s hard for me to compare but while hot is hot no matter where you are, the high humidity we have so often in the southeast is what makes it so miserable here. If it were to get 114 here with 80% humidity I wouldn’t be able to breathe.

You can have the heat, I love being outside spring, summer, and fall, you can always put more clothes on, never can take enough off.

I think Fence was addressing me.

I'm not saying it wasn't hot, or even 112F today where he was, but am saying those vehicle indicators have a history of being notoriously inaccurate.

PWS (Personal Weather Stations) are also known to inaccurate and that too is usually because of placement. It's why there is so much difference in what NWS and entities like WeatherUnderground reports. All of WeatherUnderground uses PWS inputs from people with home weather stations in their backyard.

What is the official record high temp for Florence Texas?

I know what the 20 yr old thermometer on the outside west facing post of my porch said..102 at around 5pm.
Too hot to fish.

Most of us work out in the real world not hovering 5.5 off the ground in the shade at an official temperature station.

Work, when did you start working outside, 70 ain't hot inside. :hide:

70 means the unit needs more coolant.

IDK. I was at Watson heading to lometa.
It got cooler as I went west. The nws monitoring station is in the middle of a pasture about 2 miles west of Florence.
Dang sure doesn't seem to be in the shade. Doesn't matter. The temperature can vary several degrees over just a couple hundred yards. Altitude, sun exposure, wind currents even vegetation and soil type can effect temperature.
So if you wanna spilt hairs all thermometers are useless except for what they are actually touching.
I'm sure you can find a link... ;-) because I mean if it's on the internet.................

And your welcome anytime to come and confirm anything this poster post. Perhaps you can produce a link on something you actually have experience in.

I was passing along information from the local TV weatherman answering a question from someone that was asking why the temp may be 104 and their car shows 117. Answer was the answer I posted. You can believe it or not does not make a crap to me whether you do or not.

Well, when I retired I talked it over with the Big Man upstairs and he sent word I could either sit around and butt in to the young whippersnappers' talk or move down to Goliad and wile away the hours on a park bench on courthouse square, spittin' tobacco juice and watching the passerby folks .. Now I would have greatly preferred the sittin-N-spittin tobacco juice job but I never did chew and wife didn't want to move to South Texas anyway, so here I am.

When it comes your turn, I highly recommend the Goliad gig...
