How hot did it get today???
Just reading that brought back giggles - in a previous life a couple of us promoted the company into drilling a wildcat down in S Texas. It came in at 50 million a day natural and one of the big wigs came down from the main office for a photo op. Now, imagine this - that reservoir was at 500 F so in the travel to the surface it didn't cool down much. You could see the heat waves coming off the tree very clearly. It came time for the picture taking and this character leans his hand up on the tree.
Have you ever heard the phrase 'don't take me long to check out a fire?' He had blisters an inch across.
I felt sorry for him as he was a good guy but he had just been in that ivory tower a little too long.
Looks like St.Louis is finally getting some rain! We are going up there in October
and it would be nice if it wasn't all burnt!!!
I have Krispy Kreme lemon filled and Bavarian creme donuts, the weather be damned!
