Drove the car WTF

I am sad to say that I drove my little 2013 GTI to the office today!!
First time in 87 days and I just went to get lunch and it said 109F on temp cluster. Never buy Black on Black on Black!! Gets way to HOT!! White Versys much cooler!

Been in the upper 90s here for a few days.. I have no desire to ride. Coming in to work in the morning not too bad, but the evening commute just sucks.

90's pretty warm if in traffic but my commute is only 3.2mi. Starting today it's going to average 92 for the foreseeable future in West Ore. but I've yet to be beat by the heat here. I think it's been since December '13 that I had to take the bronco. I kept riding @ - 7F but when it warmed up to 12F and snowed I had to draw the line.

Broke 100 here in Salt Lake City yesterday, forecast of 102 for today, Thursday and Friday, and 100 on Saturday. Gotta stay hydrated, but I'll still be riding!

It's too hot here in the Salt Lake area for me to commute on the V from the south valley to the airport mid afternoon. I arrive too sweaty at work.

Next week the temps should be down in the 90's and I'll ride to work in that.

My 2014 Ford Focus ST is black on black on black.
Gets hot, but not stupidly hot because I've got 20% tint all around and a fitted windshield shade.
