Dang Dave, you guys are being punished. Problem to me is that heat trickles down to me in SW Colorado. And I know I don’t deserve this crazy heat. Stay safe my friend. Those are Big numbers.
 
Had that here for the last few days. New heat records all over Oregon all 3 days. 117 in Salem today. I'm about 5 miles west of that and about the time we hit 113 some cool marine air pushed in and the temps started dropping fast. Its normally in the 70's and low 80's this time of year. Glad its over with though. Dog thought I was being mean to her because I wouldn't take her for a walk.

I was in the 115 in Bellevue today.....the heat was bad enough but most places don’t have AC and people were melting......fast food places closed up shop at about 3pm and as a traveler I couldn’t find a place to eat cause those that were open were out of food or already booked.....ie my co worker waited 3 hours for take out, he ordered at 5:00 and at 8 was still waiting....I got turned away at 6:30......oh and the hotel food place is still closed for COVID crap....

here were some shelf’s in the local grocery store........I thought I might get a premade salad or yogurt or something like that......

after 3.5 hours of trying to find a place to eat for dinner I settled for a snickers, jerky and a Dr PepperZero.....oh and I felt lucky to get that....
 
I sure hope you have or can find a place with ac while the temps are that high. Do us a favor and don't decide to go out and work in it or at least not for very long at a time. Hopefully it gets back down to normal temps very quickly

Hey Gerald, I think I will stay inside... AC on,.,,. and maybe throw some water on the condensing coils periodically.... The garden doesn't grow in this heat.... Only thing that grows is ME getting tired of the heat....
 
Those temps are nothing to play with . I got overheated working on the damn football stadium years ago . You only get one shot . After that you feel the effect of it at lower temps .

I have a water nozzle that has a mist setting on it . When it gets in the 90's and the unit won't cycle I hang it on a piece of pipe next to the condensing unit . Just low pressure . Acts like a commercial cooling tower .

Those temps are what we've been living with for the last couple of months Dave, tho it's expected here. If you don't have AC and a pool you ain't ready for the Phoenix area, period. Stay inside with the AC on Dave, stay safe, and don't be climbing around on your truck bed! RAY

You're lucky, Dave. No A/C here. We usually get 2 weeks of what we call really hot weather here in Alberta--really hot here is anything over 85 F--so A/C is not the norm. Our normal summer temp is in the high 70's/low 80's (with an occasional snow flurry thrown in just 'cause), but with this stretch of hot weather, we've been hovering a couple of degrees shy of 100.
Add to that, we've got our 3 year old grandson, my step-daughter, and their cat staying with us for a while.
It's killing me!!!!

Man You guys are getting Hammered with heat !! It's only 92° here right now. Expecting 97° by 3 PM.
I can't even imagine what 115° feels like.
I keep my hot water at 118°, and I can only hold my hand under the spigot for a few seconds. 118° Air can't be much better!!!
