    Dang this heat!!!

    We are working on around our 15th day of 90 or above temps. Many have been over 95. Today it's supposed to be around 98. The humidity is up so the feels like is over 100. For comparison average temps this time of year are around 84. This is late July weather for us. It's hot and I'm over it!!!


    It's so hot the squirrels are handling their nuts with potholders.

    It's so hot trees are whistling for dogs.

    It's so hot you learn that a seat belt makes a pretty good branding iron.

    Sweat shop is open for work, I have 5 fans blowing.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    this crap heat is torturing me.
    today its humid and around 90 so far.
    I was thrilled when the lumber yard called and asked if tomorrow will be ok cause I cant function today. My arms are too weak to lift a drill, and my hands are almost useless today.
    Heat is a killer for so many crapola neuro diseases.
    Retiring to Florida is out of the question now for me unless Im in remission for years first.
    I gotta go out there and set up party lights for Friday, and make some room for the cherry coming in tomorrow.
    (I thought Id be planing and jointing away today for the buffet unit)

    I'm sure you're getting the heat over your way too Dave.

    Honestly, I don't mind the heat. It's when the humidity gets jacked up that I hate. When your outside working and your soaking wet with sweat and it feels like a sauna, that stinks. It's 91 with a feels like of 99.

    Mid to high 90s here in northern Arkansas also. It's hot but bearable if one drinks plenty of water and uses common sense.
    We were in central Arkansas last week, temps were about the same but the humidity about 1000% higher. Come out of air conditioning and it would about knock me off my feet.
    But, it's summer and I remember last winter, ain't griping.
    But, I know I will gripe mightly Friday evening when I am in my full Rev. Rifleman outfit for the Red, White and Blue Festival.

    The humidity is higher then the heat index. This is DC's finest, darn place was built over swamp land.
    I had to drive to get a new gal of Lacquer retarder. Finishes are dring so fast in this heat I need to slow them down.
    Work tomorrow will be starting at 5 AM till 10 and head home till 4 and come back and work till 10PM till this heat lets up.
