That's good to hear Blue.

Misleading headline is misleading, bad newspaper. "Oklahoma is so hot that street lamps are melting." No they're not. The long-strand translucent polymer bubble covers are melting, and that's because they're made using one of two forms. Either by lowheat forms then glue bonding, or by vacuum forming. The bulbs themselves I'll bet are low pressure sodium, both of which emit very little heat. Meh we used both types of forming back when I was working in medium and heavy industry, and when the plant hit 125-130f, all our stuff would go *bloop* the first time we did it, we yelled at management. And shitcanned it. The second time, we switched to a new forming processes.
