Houston is under a extreme heat advisory, so it is time for yet another armored shirt; this one is from KNOX Clothing: UK Brand (made in China).

Yes, we are talking about the same thing. :)

The first time I noticed it was getting off a plane in Brisbane. We had flown from Melbourne, and in those days one exited the plane direct into open air. It felt like getting hit in the face with a warm, damp cloth. :grin:

I am just back from Burnet Texas, I had to give up. I was in an "older" type of resort, and the room temperature was 85F/30C with the window air-conditioning set to minimum temperature. It is so hot that any kind of activity becomes a burden.

I had booked an astronomy presentation, and even then, could not properly see the Milky Way because of the humidity in the air. The setup was ideal, since the moon was 1%.

Now we have to contend with Beryl...

My location is now in the tail of Beryl, and let's say it was quite the experience, again!

We had the Derecho in May, 6 days without power, and we also lost power this time; fortunately, it came back a few minutes ago, partially.

The whirlwind was like mini tornadoes and a lot of foliage and trees have again been uprooted. Lots of cleaning will be required.

Fortunately, this time we still had a semblance of phone network, so we could monitor the Beryl path. The gusting is the most impressive as you go from complete calm to a sudden force gale.

Losing the Internet is really like losing your lifeline to communications.

I have wet tested the KNOX Armored shirt under a tropical deluge this morning, and I can confirm if you could be totally drenched by the rain continuously, then riding in the searing heat would be no problem....

At speed, the droplets of rain seriously ping you through the mesh fabric.

It was an interesting experience.
