The other day I bought 2 disposable lighters, and I left 1 on the dash of the pickup, when I went to leave about 11:00 PM. it had exploded, sending shards of plastic all over the cab.
Be careful in this heat, and PLEASE, if you have any older family or friends, check in on them in the heat.

Here in Manhattan the temp and humidity are in the mid 90s. Add to that the pollution and the masses of (in)humanity - What a mess.

Lucky there was not static or spark in that cab when she blew.
You would have come back to find shards or your truck all over the yard...

Hola: Sounds like you guys need a break from the hot weather. You could try here in central Mexico. Contrary to popular opinion, Mexico is not all hot & dry desert. We live here in eastern Jalisco, where the elevation is 7000´ and the terrain is forested mountains/high plateau, and where I need to wear my fleece pullover in the evening. In the winter, it gets down into the twenties at night, and snows a bit occasionally.

Anyway, we get a thundershower or a gentle rain once a day to keep the high temps under 70 degrees here now, and down to about 50 degrees at night.

Actually, quite a few Texans escape the summer heat in the well travelled, but beautiful artsy town of San Miguel de Allende, about four hours west of here . There is quite an established ´Gringo infrastructure´ there, making it easier for Gringos. I am the only Gringo in this town, which I like. Kind of that ´big fish in a small pond complex´I guess :-)
