Image via WikipediaPortland has experienced three days of temperatures over 100 degrees. It's been quite a long time since we've seen this much heat in our summer here. Wednesday the high temperature hit 106 degrees, which is just one degree short of the city's all-time high or 107.
Needless to say it is difficult to do much vintage watch restoration work given the levels of perspiration these temperatures result in.
Also, given the importance of lighting, I am fortunate to have an extremely good location for my bench in a corner of a room with big windows facing west and north. It's not quite so fortunate from a temperature standpoint though as the sunlight is unbearable by the afternoon these days.
It is expected to cool off, a little, for the weekend. I hope so. There's plenty of work to do.
