I'm sure it was very hot in Minnesota, but 134° ? No, I don't think so. Do you even know how hot 134° really is? So many people would have dropped
dead from being outside, as Minnesotans are not acclimated to that sort of heat.
I've been in Iraq for 2 summers, and 120° was normal, higher if you were standing on asphalt or some other circumstance, and it is beyond
excruciating and brutal. Honestly, I'm not even sure I ever experienced up to 134°, even in Iraq. That's pretty high, and I'm not going to factor in
body-gear, or vehicle cabin temps. You really cannot imagine what over 130° is, so if it happened in Minnesota, it would have been a really big deal,
more so than what we are hearing. Just saying.
We're talking Death Valley and Sahara desert temp. territory here.
