I think I've lost about 15 pounds

Working in the Alabama heat, wearing fire retardant coveralls over my normal work clothes.

Going through about three gallons of water a day.

Looks like we're right on track to finish the job by....Monday.


Well, shit.

Those fire retardant coveralls are torture devices. They're for stopping severe burns in a flash fire.

How do they work? The kill you with dehydration before you're ever exposed to a fire.

Good ones, and you 'could' have paid large dollars to lose that weight... LOL Had dinner at your old hang out last night.

Been there with the fire retardant coveralls. Used to lose several pounds of water a day in the heat.

One of the hidden statistics in heavy industry is the number of heat injuries caused by wearing long-sleeved coveralls in 100+ temperatures just to comply with directives from the fedgov.
