124 degrees of hot in Calexico

Leo is back in the co-pilot's seat and we are back on the road!  We ended up spending alot more time out of the truck than any of us like.  As Tony says, "sailors belong on ships and ships belong at sea".  I guess that applies to us too.  
We had a quick run up to Memphis and down to Calexico, CA and then got stopped by the holiday weekend.  That is over and we are sitting in West Virginia having dropped at a Con-Way terminal here and waiting to pick up a load going to Colorado.  I can only hope that we stay up in the cooler weather for a bit.  
It was 124 degrees of hottness in Calexico.  We took a picture of the dash indicator, but I still haven't figured out how to get photos on to the blog.  I have managed to take pictures and get them into the laptop.  I can even edit them in the iphoto program, but I can't seem to get them out of it and onto this blog.  I know it is just a matter of working and learning, but my patience is worn thin with it right now.  I did get to spend some time at the photo center in Walgreens and printed umpteen copies of cute pictures of our delightful grandchildren, Zander and Sirena.  Those will be going out in the mail to family soon.  It is hard to write the note when we are bouncing down the road.
Right now, we are pushing 11 hour days each.  Con-Way terminal runs are always on a tight schedule and there really is just barely enough room to get them in on time.  I need to think through how to explain how our time tables work - it is pretty intense sometimes.
So, I'll put on my thinking cap while I'm driving across I-64 heading to Colorado. . .
