    Ok so I’m in NorCal and it’s like 105 degrees and I’m basically dead in my truck with 280 stops every day. When it’s like 115 down by you guys what the heck do y’all do? I just know when I’m complaining I always start thinking of you guys because it must be terrible... if anything just know I’m thinking of ya Lol

    I’ve been told by folks who’ve lived in AZ that it’s a dry heat. Would probably be more tolerable than the high-humidity, suffocating summer heat we typically have where I am. Maybe CA is similar.

    Don’t take it personally. Every advance in safety standards and working conditions over the last 100 or so years probably started with an old guy saying “Kids these days!”

    People are become much more effected by the heat than in the past. I think this has to do with the fact that most people spend almost all of their time in temperature controlled environments.
