Jumping in an oven!

This weekend we went to the vault for Moa meet, it was awesome. It wasn't really hot out but it was on turf and geeez! It felt like 120 degrees down there. Has anyone else jumped in the middle of a turf field, and did it feel blazing hot?

We set up the pole vault on a raised runway on the astroturf at the Seattle International, but it was around 70 degrees and gorgeous :D
