    Temperatures in the high 100s are definitely nothing new in South Dakota. I was in Rapid City, South Dakota on July 6, 1973 when it hit 110 degrees. My truck had no air conditioning, but even so, I had to keep the windows up. At 60 mph, the hot wind was actually painful when it came in the window. Better to keep them closed, even at 110 degrees.
