    Man I done heard enough horror stories, I don't work outside when the heat index is 104+.

    That stuff can knock you on your tail without warning, and when it does you have a serious problem, even more so if you're by yourself but either way, unless someone acts fast... And if someone is there and reacts instantly, it is still possible by the time it's all said and done, the doctor tells you in all seriousness that you can never go out in the heat again...

    That stuff can hurt you like a heart attack or a stroke, it usually only lasts a few days, I might work in the pm or the am but I will not work through the worst of it, no way, no how.

    After 24yrs it's hard to say what's the worst. Let's just say I've worked through ALL of it.:hammerhead:
