The temperatures topped out today at 111 degrees F.

That's hot. Not near our record highs yet. But hot enough that if you touch the metal parts of your car after it's been parked in the parking lot you can burn yourself.

Days like this are the reason why almost every car in town has a custom fit carpet covering the dashboard, a padded steering wheel cover, and a sun screen for the windshield to protect the interior of the car while it is parked.

Seat covers are also a necessity. Especially if you wear shorts. There is nothing more painful that sitting down on a plastic or leather seat when the interior of your car is over 110 degrees inside.

You can usually spot the people in the grocery store that don't have good seat covers, they are walking around and the back of their thighs are bright red.
