Yooooooo... @Dor123... 122 degrees?? Was that the actual "feels like" temperature, or was that heat index?
That's crazy! Absolutely crazy, if that's actual air temperature

@Dor123, that's... I can honestly say, although I'm only 28 years old, I'm not sure if I would be able to
physically survive that kind of temperature. That's only 12 degrees away from the hottest temperature ever
recorded here in the U.S: 134 degrees.

My paint booth at work has no temp control, the heat is either on or off. when is really humid you still need the heat on to lower the humidity in the booth (humidity causes paint to do BAD THINGS!) . I've been in there ,in my Tyvek suit, spraying at between 115-130 degrees on multiple occasions. I come out of there looking like a drowned rat cause I'm soaked with sweat! When I come out into the 90 degree shop it feels like air conditioning !

@Dor123, see what I mean?? Even Wide-lite 1000's paint booth wasn't as hot as the weather over there where you live.
122 degrees is so far the hottest temperature I've ever heard of, especially here recently.

@Wide-lite 1000, I couldn't imagine how hot that paint booth would be if it were 122 degrees outside here in Ohio.
We're getting relief here in Dayton Ohio now with the weak thunderstorms that just developed. I was on my way towards
going to the bike garage to try out the smoked visor I finally installed onto my helmet. Went to the gas station to
fill up my car to prepare to head to the garage in Middletown... by the time I was at the gas station, I already canceled
plans to go to the garage. A storm base cloud was in front of me waiting for me to take the highway. haha... nope.
Not going anywhere today.

@ suzukir122 : I can't wait for it to cool down even a little, the temp in the shop was 94 degrees today !

@ dor123 : My brother used to live in the desert in southwestern Arizona, I visited him there once and even with the low humidity is was OPPRESSIVE ! Even the wind was HOT ! I couldn't imagine 122 degrees with the sun beating down on me. NO THANK YOU !

Lighting hit the power pole in front of my house two weeks ago while I was on the can... twice, boy that was exciting. I had to replace the mainboard on my tv because a Chinese power relay flashed over and fried the tv through the USB port it was attached to. Apparently one of the outdoor elsewhere in the house GFCI's got blasted too, gotta fix that soon. My neighbor's internet line got toasted as well.

It was in the upper 90's here both Thu & Fri, plus 9% humidity on Fri...so pretty desert-like .lol. I think down in the city (Denver), it got to 100, & 101 those days.

We had a nice little thunderstorm (not severe) come through my area tonight, had pretty frequent lightning, but looked like most of it stayed in the clouds. Still cool to watch.

Heard some thunder (only two times) and it started drizzling pretty fast but then it stopped as soon as it started. The temperature was 84 degrees and humidity was 38%. Probably the only severe weather (and probably rain) I will face in the summer lol.

Saturday night we got a storm. About 9PM it started thundering after dinner, but far away, so I went out on the back porch to have a look. Just some lightning in distance and a very slight sprinking of rain. I stayed about there about 10 minutes, then suddenly the flashes got much closer. It lit up the whole area like daylight and very loud thunder started, so I went back inside, too dangerous. A few minutes later it started pouring down rain with more flashes - could see them in the house with blinds closed. But it only lasted about 20 minutes and then it was gone.

Today it rained this evening quite a bit but not a lot of thunder in it.

We've had a few severe thunderstorm warnings around here for the past few days. Typical summertime pattern with these isolated cells going severe for about 30 minutes or so. Lightning struck right around the house the other day and I was worried that it ran into one of my lights outside, but it didn't. There is a front coming in this week that is supposed to cool things off a bit and give us a decent amount of rainfall.

I just had a severe thunderstorm roll threw a few minutes ago. We had a tornado warning as well. There was lightning all over the place. The lights flickered a lot but never went out. I will have to check the paintball field for damage as it's in a area known direct lightning strikes.

Last night was going for walk, in evening. There were some dark clouds forming, but no thunder. But when I was further away, suddenly the thunder started cracking, so I turned around and got home quickly. It started popping more frequently, but no rain until later on. Not a very long rain, but steady.
