If you were wondering whether the color of materials can make much difference in how the Texas sun feels, check this out!
At our MI-BOX Dallas Mobile Storage dealership, we had an unusually cool and wet spring this year, but now we are back to days and days of 100F-ish temperatures, and our youngest son and I finally did an experiment that I’ve been meaning to do for years.
We hung a white shirt and a black shirt for a few minutes on our fence facing the sun and then used a laser thermometer to measure the temperatures. At the time, the official temperature was 104F/40c.
The white shirt measured 115F/46c.
The black shirt was 130F/54c.
I’m wearing white in the summer!
