New Haven? Heh...My 5th grade class bussed to New Haven to see "How the West Was Won" when it came out. Apparently it wasn't showing at any theater in Springfield, Mass at the time. AFAIK, it's the only time I was there, although I do (did?) have relatives in some small town not far from Mass...don't remember which town.Weird up until like 10 days ago we really didn't have any hot spells. (New Haven CT)
In fact I only broke down and installed my AC this past Tuesday I think? Pretty sure its the first time in my adult-life I made it through June without it, at least for sleeping.
We turn on the A/C and stay inside.Yeah intense heat sucks. Hope you have A/C! I had trouble justifying it myself but ended up caving a few years back. Worth it. This month's hydro bill is going to hurt though... I'm on equal billing so won't really see it immediately though.
It's cooled off a bit today. 17C instead of 30+.
I don't know how people live in places that get up to 40. That's just insanity.
Great if you have that option, but imagine construction workers etc. I don't envy those guys at all. Especially if their work requires them to wear pants or other covering for health and safety reasons.
Oh man, I think that or roofing would be the worst jobs in that heat. Especially if you have a "by the book" boss that just allows a 15 minute break in the morning, half hour lunch and 15 minute afternoon break.
I always hated asphalt jobs...air temp around 100f, asphalt temp around 300f...plus the heat of the engine and hydraulics on the paver...and the stink of the asphaltic oil...
Meh...I worked outdoors for over 30 years, most of that operating heavy equipment, and mush of that in the seat of a crane...surrounded by glass and hot-as-fuck hydraulics. If it was 100f outside, it was probably 125 or more in the cab. Hydration is key.To be honest, it's anyone that has to work outdoors. Landscaping, construction, asphalt, farmers, etc...
Sounds kind of like a whole-house fan set up..FTS, I can't stand intense heat rather be inside in A/C. Keep the outdoor work for fall/spring or even winter. Hydration does not do anything about the constant sweating and feeling nasty. Really if it was not for sweating the heat would not be that bad. It's the sweating that makes it so miserable.
We're getting a break now from the heat wave. Still warm in my house though. I should have opened the windows before heading for my night shift. I'm at work now.

Actually one thing I want to eventually do is add an economizer to my hvac. Would be a great time to run it right now. Basically an intake with an insulated damper that bypasses the rest of the house returns, then an exhaust hatch that opens up in the ceiling. In that mode it would just run the blower to suck outside air in and exhaust hot air out.
That's my plan.Today feels like another scorcher already...hiding in the house
