: Just a reminder for everyone about the heat wave we are experiencing. Today, with the use of an infrared thermometer, I measured the temperature in a few vehicles in our parking lot.
: Surface temperature (hood) of one vehicle registered about 175 degrees (color--black)
: Interior temperature of several vehicles with windows closed averaged about 155 degrees. With such a high temperature it is fairly obvious the concern for leaving anyone (people or animals)
: inside such a vehicle for any length of time. Serious injury, possibly death could result in a very short period of time.
: Be sure to pass this on to your family and friends.
