    We are the same this week in michigan. If you think your hot walking around in it in shorts and a t-shirt the you should work with me for a day in this heat. Im a heavy equipment/machinery welder( a lot of hydraulic press fabrication) an average of 30,000 lbs per weldment and some even reach almost 60,000lbs. we work in a wearhouse, I have to wear jeans, steel toe boots, t-shirt, welding jacket, leather gloves, resperaror, saftyglasses, welding helmet and then carry my welding lead and air chipper up the ladder and weld with 3/32 dual shield ( very hot stuff) wire that we run at 30v. On top of that we are running a stress releaving furnis in the shop that is about 2 1/2 cars long and 15feet high. It runs for 24 hours reaching between 1100 & 1500°f .

    The company name is " John Crowly" located in jackson michigan. They started in 1908 and have been going strong. the website is a little outdated but you will get the idea.

    I love the job but it gets to you sometimes ( like this week for example)

    Same in iowa, we have a second amendment rally this Saturday (Searsboro 9-5) if anyone's in the area. 1500 people at the range in this heat is going to be interesting.

    As HVAC service tech this weather has been great for the bank account. Every other part of my life this weather sucks.
