How Hot You Got?

First off, if JD is lurking this should be irresistible... Driving home the outside temp went to 102 F (top down!) but that didn't happen because I did not get a picture, so I'll have go with an even 100.



What have you got?

Last June, Alliance Airport, Fort Worth, TX.



I'm sure the Arizona boys will post some even higher temps.

You'll have to take my word for since I didn't photo it but Sunday my temp was 114. Forgot to use the windshield shade. Tallahassee Fl. That black upholstery was super hot.

Good thing you didn't measure Humidity :-)

I had a softball tournament in 115 degrees in Austin a few years back...
But only 108 on the gauge.

Here you go. One from an Arizona boy.



Sorry my car is not setup to show the temp. If it was on that day it would have shown as in my other cars about 130 as the asphalt on the freeway just radiates heat and the temp sensor would pick that up.

Next winter when all of you are gloating about how warm and snow-free it is where you live, I'll be thinking of this thread. It's supposed to get up to 78° F here today .
