It's brutal here, in the summer !   

Arizona either makes you healthy, or it kills you ...  ;D

It's OK, it's a dry heat. (says nobody who has ever spent time in the desert with those kind of temperatures)  ::)

Try to stay cool out there.

Will do !

I rode motorcycles exclusively, for many years, in this heat.

Anything above 105 F, and I go into auto-hibernation mode.   ;)

Hrm ...

I'm wondering if they shut down the airports today.

If I remember correctly, flight tables only go to 120 F.  They don't know what will happen above that.

I'll cruise around the news feeds and see if I can dig up anything.

Is that the little tray that folds down from the seat in front? You don't want that melting on your knees.

LoL !  No !

When I took ground school, we had a book with tables in it, e.g. flight tables, showing how much lift you got, depending on air density, humidity, elevation, air temp, and so forth.

If I remember correctly, the calculations didn't go above 120 F.  Above that, it was anybody's guess what would happen.

This is what you want to avoid ...





Basically, cold, wet air at sea level gives the most lift.  Dry, hot air is the most dangerous.   ;)

LeL !

If you wanna SEE something funny, I'll have someone take my pic, the next time I'm using my 'Road Warrior' on an airplane.

Those damn snack trays are so small, I need to rest my laptop on my chest, and play it like an accordion.   :D

My Asus EeePC fits the snack tray okay, but it isn't very macho, you know ? 

Who says men aren't vain ?!?!?
