But its a dry heat - NOT!
I can relate, had a VERY BAD experience working a pipeline in Blythe last summer (only 109 but humidity was 87%). It is scary when you know something is seriously wrong w/your body (shaking, can't breathe, gonna pass-out) scared the #$%&^!! out of me. A good friend helped me into the A/C of the truck and with lots of sports drinks, water, putting an iced cloth around my neck, pits, .... cooled me back down to a safe level. Took two days to recover! I've learned DON'T MESS WITH HIGH TEMPS!
