COMBAT OUTPOST REILLY, Afghanistan – How hot is it here?
Hot enough that the air-conditioner-powering generators decided to take a vacation.
The generator for close to a dozen tents overheated midday Sunday, going down as the air temperature soared over 100 degrees. It went down again briefly today, but power was restored quickly.
To combat the overheating, Marines hung cammie netting this morning above each generator, giving the machines some shade from the hot sun, said Lance Cpl. Zach Warrilow, a mortarman here with Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 6th Marines. He’s to the left in the photograph above.
How hot is it in Afghanistan? Hotter then HELL! (Admit it, if you are old enough, you heard Johhny Carson’s voice ask this!)
My son is with Kilo, I just pray they are safe. Thanks for the updates, we don’t hear from him often.
Oh, and Happy Birthday tomorrow Lance Corporal Arnett.
My son is with the 3/3 Lima Company. I really appreciate all the information in this blog. My son turned 22 this week. Keep up the good work.
That there is what my Fearless calls “a poor attempt at shade” 😀
Thanks for keeping us in the loop Dan!
