Just curious what temperature you guys or gals consider hot. I work at a silicon metal plant and Im a furnace operator. Up on the deck where I work its typically 250-300 degrees F. Does anybody else work in a hot area?

NO. Outside I start feeling it anytime the temp is above say mid 90s. I was a heat casualty in the Army before and I just can't stand the heat too much anymore. But I have been deployed to places where the average temp of a day was well over 100f. The one place (rain forest) satyed around 110 of a day. Likewise, I have been sent to very cold places. One place I was at got down to around -70f of a night. I actually hated that place a little bit less than the heat though.

I know what you mean. I would rather be cold than hot. Its easier to get yourself warm than it is to make yourself cold.

We have water cooled pipes that run inside the furnace some of which are flexible hoses. If one of those bust we have to shut the furnace down and get in the furnace to replace the hoses or hoses. Its easily over 300 degrees in the furnace. And thats with the doors open and fans blowing.

Wow, maybe my job with all it's mandatory overtime isn't so bad afterall. How often do you get a break? A person can't take that kind of heat very long

I work about 20-30 minutes out of an hour then I usually get 30-40 minutes of break time. Sometimes less sometimes more, just depends on the furnace conditions. Well its not really considered a break. Im still working, but I sit in a control room and monitor electrical paramiters on 2 computer monitors.

I work outside in where it is frequently 95-105 and it feels pretty hot. I was in Iraq for 2005 and the hottest I remember it getting up to was 144 in the sun and it was 132 in the shade that day. My dad once asked me during a call home what the heat felt like, I told me it felt like you were in a hot oven while blasting yourself with a heat gun. It caused a good chuckle. Now thanks to that time I spent in Iraq, I cant stand the cold for crap. Gets into the lowest 60's on down and Im like, wheres the dang heat at!
