The new tar paved was melting on our foot soles- air temperature measured 118 degrees- then put into play the ground radiation, the flacks and equipment we wear, etc... and you have yourself an oven.

May God bless our soldiers for the sacrifice and discomfort they are enduring on our behalf. May we be worthy of their gift.

I know it wasn’t near as hot, but it reminds me of racing across the asphalt parking lots barefoot, from the car to the stores in the summer. I never did wear shoes in the summer.

Me too. I remember finally getting across the parking lot onto the cool, green grass, and letting my on-fire feet cool-off. Hoo-wee!

Are you sure you’re not talking about Phoenix? Heck, it’s like that 100 days a year out here.

If it is 130 degrees in the street, that is really hot. We landed in Incirlik, Turkey on a similar hot day on a military flight, a C-141. It was so cold in the plane that my nose was blue. When they opened the aircraft and the heat poured in, it sent me into shock. I was sick for a couple days. But we did love living in Turkey!
