Feeling the Heat

David Session deserves the post title here.

In Saudi Arabia, the temperature often reaches 50C in the summer. Given the information about the 8th of July 2003, we can calculate that the heat index hit -- I'm not kidding -- 64C or 148F.

That's just the heat index. For soldiers add armor, ammo, rifle ... it's beyond comprehension. These guys aren't exaggerating when they mention feeling 55C or 130F in Iraq during the summer.

By the way, I've been to the hottest place in Asia! (Read the first link to see where that is.)



When I was young spending the summer at an uncles farm North East of Tulsa, Ok. The heat was 125F for over 1 week with the humidity at 70 to 80%. It was considered to be dangerous to work outside, and the mail was even stopped delivery. It was back in the early 1980's or late 1970's.
