August not so bad. No heat island. The monsoons would blow through. It would cool off at night a bit. The real old homes had sleeping porches.
July - Hot. We would play in the cottonwood tree windbreaks between the fields, swim in the irrigation canals and wave at the crop dusters that were spraying us with DDT.
1962 or 1963, after-class August HS practice, we were hitting the 7-man sled in 100+° weather in full pads. Coach Pagel got dizzy and almost fell off the sled. Coach Ulichney came running over to see if he was OK. Pagel - I’m fine, but maybe we should give these guys a water break. I was ready to vote him Coach of The Year.
