Happy to see they got them some air conditioning.

A little but those big black fans are swamp coolers so it's gotta be stupid hot in there

Yeah, when I lived in Phoenix, my house had a swamp cooler (imagine a fan blowing air past a wet beach towel- no compressor, so cheaper than AC) and regular AC. In July and August the dew point and humidity were so high that the swamp cooler basically blew hot, humid air into the house and I had to turn it off and use the AC.

Last time I was in Phoenix I visited a warehouse stocking satellite TV equipment. The temperature must have been around 45°C (you do the math). That would be illegal in the UK. Everyone would have been sent home. But in the USA apparently it's OK to cook your workers.

45°C = 113°F

It was 112 today and about 20% humidity at the lowest. The foehn (hot wind) was making it worse, suddenly a small thunderstorm is looming and the temp has dropped to 102.

Yeah that was fun. I almost got killed by a flying lawn chair.

I saw that the dew point was in the 60's yesterday and today. That's high for here.

Oh you silly americans with your temperature scale. BTW how many hogheads to the rod does your car get on the highway?

inquimous 2 points ago +2 / -0

Well, a hogshead is 63 US gallons or 52.45 imperial gallons or 238.48 liters. A US land mile is 320 rods but a nautical mile is 368.25. You'll have to be more specific. However, I will tell you that the capacity of my tank is about 2.1 cords, and as the guage is massively off, usually I refill every 218,000 smooths to be on the safe side.

Swamp coolers. Unfortunately it's humid in Phoenix with the 'monsoons' going on now. Hats off to those Patriots working in uncomfortably warm conditions ensuring the audit is done right!
