Imagine my surprise when I encountered this scene! Click to enlarge.

Hot Weekend!

It was particularly hot this weekend. While preparing to depart for a wedding that I was to photograph, Mr. Nitro's exterior temperature probe displayed this frightening image.

Please excuse the quality of the image. Sweat was pouring from my face, and the sun blazing through Mr. Nitro's windshield made it difficult to see what the camera was seeing!

It was actually a mere 109°, but the temperature probe reacted to the heat collected in the cloistered space where it is housed.
