    I haven't seen one in a package car here in decades. I think the news said we were supposed to have had a heat index of 105 today.

    22 years without one. Around here a good heater is more important.

    The truck on the route next to mine has a fan so I requested one a couple of months ago. I was told "there is a freeze on all fans for package cars at the moment". Figures!

    I have these guys follow me around all day and applaud my effort since UPS will never give me the pat on the back I so deserve.

    I don't recall ever not having one in my pc. They are a lifesaver on a hot day. I always found it amazing that UPS had no problem spending money to keep their tech equipment in some climate controlled 70 degree room but didn't give a crap if their employees were suffering heat stroke. To hell with the numbers---take care of yourselves in the heat.

    No fans here.

    Did have a PCM on Tuesday when we had heat index of 105.


    "Stay hydrated, if you have a heat stroke you will be suspended. You are warned. Don't be calling in and say that you are dizzy and having signs of heat stroke. You have been told to drink water."
