meet mlah the vampire.
i feel totally like vlad the impaler. hey! mlah the impaler!
i work nights so i get to miss most of the heat. it actually gets down to around 75 or so at night. just before sunrise.
then that cursed ball o fire comes out to play. and your humble narrator resorts to skitting from shade tree to shade tree to move around base. exposing yourself to the sun for too long at a time means the sun wants to burn the flesh from your bones.
it is that hot.
there is something called a “wet bulb index”, which is like the reverse of the wind chill. it’s how hot it feels out.
so, although the temp says it’s a mere 120 or so, the wet bulb says 140.
it’s like turning a blow dryer on high and blowing it right in your face. but oh, it’s giant! the whole wind is like the blow dryer. not just the little stream of air.
so i work nights. and i stay inside.
i AM the impaler!
