We're Talking Crazy Heat

Summer has kicked into high gear here in Qatar. Just in the past week, the temperature has gone from "Wow, it's pretty warm out here" to "I walked outside and immediately burst into flame." It doesn't help that we're on the part of the project that requires a lot of trenching out in the sun. But even so, we don't have our air conditioning units hooked up yet, so inside is just as warm with no air circulation at all.
One of the buildings we're working on is right next to the clinic, and yesterday, the captain that works in mental health brought some fresh fruit out to us. Today, she brought smoothies. Apparently, she can spot a potential basket case a mile away and is doing her best to keep us cool and sane.
