Historic heat at Camp Roberts

It’s been hot this summer here in Paso Robles. Temperatures between 100 and 105 are starting to seem ordinary. But I bet Camp Roberts is hotter. I don’t actually know that. I guess I just assume it’s hotter because the first time I felt this kind of heat was at Camp Roberts during the Korean War. I was there 18 months, including two summers.
