in my 18 months at Hood (Granted, 9 months technically were deployed in Afghan) I have never, ever seen it this hot. days where its "98F, feels like 105F, 60% Humidity) are atrocious. Granted, being from Florida, I can stand humidity, but this heat, lordy lou. Plus, going into a motorpool that's all concrete probably tacks on 10 degrees, and another 10 when the tanks are on... Its cool though, trying Gin and Tonic tonight. Wedge of lime, I can see this as a hot weather drink. Never liked gin, Never liked tonic water. But the mixture? something clicks. Coming from an American Bourbon drinker, this fancy stuff with a fancy dude on the bottle (Beefeater) is pretty good coming from across the Atlantic. Props to London. PS. We still won the Revolutionary War, and the war of 1812, and back to back world war champs.
