Default The heat is HOT !

104 degrees on the wall in my shop today.

2 days ago when it was only 101, I took my IR thermometer out to a closed up car sitting in the sun.

-172 degrees on the light tan colored seat cushion


-184.5 degrees on the black steering wheel and airbag cover




You folks who leave your kids or pets in the car 'for just a sec', outa be subject to the same........

You folks who haul your critters around in the back of a pickup with black bed liners or bed lining are literally burning the pads off your dogs' feet.

If ya have an IR Thermometer, take it with you one day as you go about town. Black car vs white car surface temps - black top vs concrete - wood vs metal - you see a pickup with a dog in the back on a black bed liner / lining show the owner how hot it is for his dog. At the LEAST toss in an old carpet or piece of plywood.

No chance of my dog riding in the back. He sits up front with me in the AC!
Don't worry he doesn't sit in a hot truck waiting on me either. I leave the AC on for him or he comes inside with me.

This summer has been the lowest temps I have ever seen. All the rian and clouds have kept it unusually cooler than normal and wet for us. We have had 30+" of rain this year. I shouldn't say anything because it'll probably get hot as heck now.
