The Gates of Hell

BudLiteGood morning, y’all. We hold out hope for cooling rains over the weekend. Even with the threat of lost power due to lightning strikes and/or high wind, we could still use a cool off from a rain storm. The asphalt is not melting yet but the heat is building up in all things constructed of metal.

Grabbing hold of the door handle on the maintenance shed was like grabbing hold of the hinges of the gates of Hell.

It would seem like an old-timer such as myself would remember that extreme temperatures require protective measures.

Like touching your tongue to a frozen water spigot can bring disastrous results, so can touching metal that has been out in this sun.

Lesson learned.
