Thank GOD I slapped extra-dark limo-black tint on the back windows of my car, or I'd probably have gotten heat stroke due to lack of shade when my fuel pump fried near as we can figure. talesin drove out and picked me up, sitting at the PS today.
And as a side-note on the water-stuff, I rented a hotel room while waiting for batty for somewhere to put my stuff, and got some sleep. When I tried to take a shower, spending more than five minutes on each of them I gave up trying to decider which unmarked knob was theoretical 'cold' and just took a shower. Both were the same temperature, and both were at least 20 degrees colder than the surrounding air I think.
