    122 Degrees in my car - in TENNESSEE!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     andrewellis of Lexington, Tennessee, went to pick up some friends yesterday and when he got in the car an hour later, the thermometer read 122 degrees. The actual outside temperature was in the 100s all day, he said. While his car has air conditioning, some of his friends aren’t so lucky. 'I have a couple of friends whose car air conditioning isn't working and they don’t have the money to fix it. We ended up picking up those people, driving them home and then picking them up at 8 p.m. and taking them back to their cars,' he said.

    I went to get into my car yesterday and noticed that the heat was more than I had ever felt in a car before.  I rolled down the windows and started the car when I noticed that the in car temperature was 122!  I drove for 10 min to get home and felt sick but the temperature in the car fell to 110.


    It's some kinda hot right now!  :-)
