now that the dog days of summer are upon us, with temps approaching 90 or above every day, humidity and dewpoints way too high, combined with an old body and poor air conditioning, its time to pace oneself with the woodworking.
Even though I only put in 2.5 hours today, mostly in AC, but outdoors, indoors, putting moldings up around new AC, I realized hey, I brought tools, compressor, up and down stairs, and if Im not under any pressure, theres no reason to push in this heat.
Noone should push in this heat, especially if you are overweight, have diabetes or high blood pressure, or any disorder aggrevated by heat.
Its not worth it.
this stuff creeps up on you, you think youre hydrating fine, then boom!, so everyone please pace yourself.
Don't be fooled because you feel ok today, and drank 3 bottled waters.
I know a lot of us have no or limited AC in our shops.
