At least you were able to tolerate the heat! This summer has held nothing shy of 95 degrees for us here, and I just have a 40' X 60' metal shop to cast in! It's like a big metal oven. If the heat index is 105 outside ... it feels like 125 inside my shop!
I did do some smelting of wheel weights a few weeks ago under a big oak tree out back, but I still had a big fan behind me keeping me cool.
I'm afraid it will be Fall before I am able to do any casting if this heat keeps up.
