Getting hot...Hot...HOT!!!

Today's high was 119 with a heat index of 123 and climbing!!! I have a brand new appreciation for the military peeps (not that my appreciation ever waned) who have to do their job in this heat.

The only time I have to face it is walking back and forth to chow and the tent. They are in it all day with full battle rattle and in their poorly air-conditioned HUMVs. Definitely keep them in your prayers for heat related illnesses.

Hard to believe, but you are probably missing the heat & humidity of LA.

Wow!! That is way too hot and hard to comprehend being in military garb in that. You are right, our soldiers go through a lot.

ML...not sure if I would go that far yet =)

LMC...and that is just the heat...it's not counting all the idiots they have to deal with that I'm sure makes things even worse.
