    They aren’t plummeting in Indiana today. Average May temp for my area of Indiana is:
    High of 71 F and low of 51 F.

    High yesterday was 89 F and forecast high today is 88 F.

    It’s going to be a hot sweaty Indianapolis 500 this year because temps there during the race with all those people, cars, asphalt, and aluminum bleachers, run considerably higher than the ambient. The wet ball will be up there also so the medics at the track will no doubt be treating some heat injuries. Be a good day to have seats under cover there.

    Hung a brand-new 6′ x 10′ US flag and a 3′ x 5′ Gadsden (Don’t Tread On Me) flag on my 30′ pole yesterday for the Memorial Day Holiday. That flag and two Gadsden flags cost me over $100.00. Solar powered accent lights turned to their Red, White, and Blue cycle.

      On May 26, 1911 it was 100 degrees at Washington, Indiana. Every station in Indiana was well over 90 degrees that day.

        You do know that 1911 was the first year the Indianapolis 500 was run. Back then it was truly “The Brick Yard” because the track was paved in brick. The winning car, one of four with a 6 cylinder engine in the field (all the others were running 4 cylinder engines, averaged 74.602 mph and it took 6:42:08 to do the 500 miles. Tires were a big factor in that race. The winners strategy was to run at an average 75 mph to conserve the rubber and it worked.
