Yes, today, setting at train tracks with a long slow train at Grand ave & Bethonyhome rd, in our Truck, there was a Phoenix, PD setting next to us, it is HOT so yest everyone's window are up and A/C's on.
My husband slide in one of his favorite CD's and tells me to use my ear plugs,,,,,,, OMG,,,, I know what he is going to do and I'm smilings.
Volume To 10 and here comes,,,,,,,,Yes my husband has spent some money on the truck sound system and the Police Noticed!  tinylaughing



I liked this one he played as we continued around today.


 You should have seen the face of the Mexican that got his Tuba Horn / Accordion Music drowned out  tinybiggrin  by,,,,,, the above song and below, my husband just won't let this guy get away.

As we in the UK recover from a so-called devastating heat -so the media tell us, so hot that it melted the
railway tracks in areas of the country, it's a good idea to keep cool with a drink.

Yes, that's what we we're told, metal train tracks melting because of one day of sunshine!
The rails must've been made of the same stuff from the Twin Towers! Back to the drink!

@BIAD 
If your train tracks are so Weak,,, maybe they need to import tracks from Phx, Az.
You can cook breakfast on our train tracks in the summer, Ham or Bacon, eggs and even buttered toast.
Or,,, baking cooks in your car.

I kid you-not, this is from the official Network Rail website of the UK.
It's embarrassing!!!


Quote:You may not realise it, but a summer heatwave can cause as many problems
for the rail network as a downpour

In case a British summer features abnormally high temperatures, we have to plan for
intense heat, which can cause rails to buckle. When Britain enjoys a summer heatwave,
rails in direct sunshine can be as much as 20°C hotter than air temperature.

Because rails are made from steel, they expand as they get hotter, and can start to curve
–known as ‘buckling’.

Most of the network can operate when track temperatures heat up to 46°C –roughly
equivalent to air temperature of around 30°C –but rails have been recorded at temperatures
as high as 51°C.

Keeping trains running in high temperatures
When our remote monitoring systems tell us that a section of track might be expanding too
much and could cause problems, we introduce local speed restrictions.
Slower trains exert lower forces on the track –this reduces the chance of buckling.

Rails sometimes buckle even with prevention in place, and this means we need to close the
line and repair the track before trains can run again. This can disrupt journeys because we
often have to wait until the rail temperature has dropped before we can carry out these
essential repairs.

How we prevent tracks from getting too hot
We work closely with specialist weather forecasters and local weather stations to make
necessary plans and take action so rails are less likely to buckle.

*Our teams check track stability each winter as part of ongoing maintenance,
and strengthen any weak parts before summer.

*We paint certain parts of the rail white so they absorb less heat – and expand
less. Typically, a rail painted white is 5°C to 10°C cooler than one left unpainted.

*As most track is made up of long pieces of rail that are stretched and welded
together, there is much less chance of buckling in very high temperatures because
there is reduced compression.

*When a track is made up from short rails bolted together, we leave small gaps
between each one so that expansion doesn’t cause a problem.

*We’re always improving how we measure and calculate rail temperatures.
One way we’re doing this is by installing probes that alert us when track
temperatures rise to give us chance to take action and stop a problem
before it happens.

In some parts of Britain’s rail network, tracks are laid on reinforced concrete
slabs rather than on sleepers and ballast (the bed of stones that supports the
sleepers). This helps to prevent rails from buckling...'

F*ckin' embarrassing.

@BIAD  OMG  minusculespooked,
You need to get in contact with Al Gore and report this Immediately!!!
He can manipulate this in his Global Warming/Climate Change Agenda,,,, then you all can be Taxed because somehow your Collective Farts has Destroyed your Environment and you need to pay to have your tracks replaced.

Spectacular - I think I've found a new drinking song!

Folks sometimes wonder why I have two rifles, 3 spears, 3 tomahawks, 9 swords, and a battle axe surrounding my chair in my man-cave corner of my living room. It's for occasions such as this video portrays, when I may be assaulted by vikings or pirates in search of my alcohol! I keep at least 24 chilled beers and a 2-liter bottle of spiced rum on hand at all times, and you just never know when they'll come to drink my beer and steal my rum at the point of a gun... and I intend to be prepared to repel boarders at any time of the day or night, even if I have to defeat them with the sheer weight of metal I can leave sticking in them!
