Heat

It is a bit hot around here. The first type of heat is the type that the US and Coalition Forces are putting on the Taliban and al Qaeda overlords. Right now there have been a few casualties here in Afghanistan, but it is not widely reported that the Taliban has taken a lot of hits. Most of the heat is in a few provinces and the rest of the Afghanistan is cool and peaceful. All the locals know what the Taliban stands for-they were in power and ran the country like feudal fiefdom. The local populace will decide who will win by voting and not being intimated by the Taliban. The parliamentary election will be held on the 18th of September. Actually the Taliban is so stupid, if they were smart they would run for office or form a political front with candidates like other terrorist organizations has done in the past, but they hate the concept of democracy so much will not do so. Guess who is the real losers are? Yep, our adversaries from the 14th century-the Taliban.

The second type is the good old type is generated by the sun. Here is image of how hot it was a few weeks ago. Today it topped out at 119 degrees. In the morning it is cool at 80 degrees so running is nice.

Hi. I just came across your blog today and I wanted to thank you for your service. I'm a former Canadian Soldier and really appreciate what the Coalition Forces are doing there. Godspeed.

I can't believe how cold it feels in NH. Did you have problems acclimating?

I was in New Orleans earlier this week, and of course the heat and humidity were uncomfortable.

When a co worker complained about the temperature, I told her about the temperatures the members of our armed forces endure in both Iraq and Afghanistan. All of a sudden, 95 degrees seemed like a cold front. :)
