    Yup - we were at an outdoor wedding in MA saturday and I looked like I'd been pushed in a pool. It was brutal. Nothing like sitting in the sun in a jacket and tie when it feels like 107.

When your out in the heat always be mindful that if your legs begin cramping and feel as if they are going to fold up underneath you, this is the beginning of heat exhaustion. Next stop: Heat Stroke. Your body can get overheated in a New York minute and you can get into trouble. Cut off time here in the am is about 10:00. You come inside soaking wet. Horrible. You are right too in that it takes a special person to work in a burn unit. I was nearly killed in an arson house fire back in 1990. Overall I was lucky in that I suffered 2nd and some light 3rd degree burns to the top of my hands, my ear, and a small area on my neck. I was held overnight in the Grady Burn Unit in Atlanta. The nurses and staff working the unit were great and helped me to rehab back to work much sooner than most would have expected. It takes special medical professionals to work in a burn unit and have to both do and see what they deal with day in and day out inside one of these units. Tell your son Thanks for the specialized care that he will be providing from an ole' retired Firefighter.
    Thanks for your service "ole retired firefighter". My son had his badging ceremony friday (firefighter & EMT). It was sobering to see the awards named after firefighters and EMTs killed in the line of duty - including EMTs shot while trying to save lives. I support my son and hope he can't see how concerned I am for him working in one of the most dangerous parts of the country.

    Love is blind! I, too, have been detecting in this 100 deg heat and it has forced me to buy a pair of Bluetooth earbuds for my Equinox- the headphones were filling up w sweat and had to keep draining and drying every 10 minutes. Now I can't imagine going back to headphones and you can have my earbuds out of my cold dead hands or I guess it would be my cold dead ears.

    devildog sounds like we in the area. I just turned 50 and I’m no spring chicken, that’s 60 years old New Orleans years. Good point on remembering to take breaks

    Take care my friend I’m going at 5am with Possum tomorrow.

    Here in Florida 95* and 90% humidity is a normal summer day. I look forward to the afternoon rain because it cools it down a bit and the AT-Pro is waterproof and so am I.

    You have a right to be proud of your son. Public Safety, whether Fire Services, Police, or EMS, are all unsung Hero's in my opinion. It takes a special person, male or female to serve their community and deal at times with low pay and dangerous duty. It has always been sickening to me personally when some of these professional athletes sign these multi million dollar contracts and these public servants who risk their lives almost daily will never make a third of what these athletes make. You have a right as a parent to be concerned, but the Good Lord will look after him as he begins his career and forward. Thanks for the kind words, I was proud to serve in my Dept. and community.

    I read the 63 as in 63 years old. But, being 64 myself, I both speak and understand the same language as devldog. LOL.
