    100 and clmbing

    9th day in row for 100 or above temps. I feel for the guys that work outside all day! Good thing it it is a dry heat. Serious!! Humidity has been in the 20-30% range past few days. Very low for us. Typically 80% or higher. At that level sweating doesn't do any good.

    OK, got to go inspect a crawl space. It will be 80% humidity or higher in there. At least it is a quick job and good pay. I can ride in an A/C there and back!
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Dry heat - yeah right. Out here we complain how muggy it is over 10% humidity.

    Seriously though, do be careful out there. The heat can get you straight away or it can distract you and cause an accident.

    As a way younger man, I worked summers in Texas doing roofing. Stunted my growth and gave me a bad temper.
    Don't believe everything you think!

    Me, either, Jesse. But then I haven't been around you that much. Perhaps I should call your wife!!

    Cold Here

    Two weeks ago it hit 91 here...a crazy temp for Maine. This week it has been chilly, some days not hitting 70 even. Still the other morning I got up and it was 43 degrees...no kidding, that is 11 degrees from the point where wet water gets hard. Now that is chilly! This weekend its the same thing. 70's during the day, forties at night....

    Oh th days are getting shorter, the nights cooler...you can just tell this stuff is just around the corner!!

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
