Hoooooo Boy, it might've been big boy hot - but filling your boot with the red stuff had to raise your temperature a bit too!
Glad to see that you got it taken care of quickly.

Yes, sand and more sand.

First the dozer cleared and leveled a spot for the sawmill,

Then the skidder started bringing logs.  :o

Yup, gotta do what you gotta do.

Don't slid them in the sand.  :-X

And it was Big Boy Hot today.  smiley_sun smiley_sweat_drop

If I look hot it's because I was.  And then I got careless.  It doesn't matter that you wear chaps bucking all of the logs to length, but it does matter when you see one more limb to trim off after you have removed them.   :-\

She said that it was 5 cm long but it looked more like 2" to me.

I make a quick drive to the "Doc-in-the-Box.

And got me 6 brand new stitches.

More dirty logs tomorrow.

I would be more concerned with the 103 than the sand.  I get hot stupid.

Thanks guys, forecast to be a bit cooler today. 

Chain brake was on and the saw "kicked back", still no excuse for carelessness.

Funny you should say that.  I didn't have a water hose so I washed my boot out in the hotel bath tub and dried it with the hair drier.  Had to do some serious cleaning it up so they wouldn't think that there had been a chainsaw massacre.  :o

Monday, I got too hot and saw the bear.  Heat index was 109.  It is dangerously hot here in Georgia.  Yesterday I had some things to do in town so I took it pretty easy. As you know MM, when you get that hot, bad things can happen like what happened to you.  Every time that I need to saw something quick with the chainsaw and do not use the chaps, that little voice in my right ear says, "UMMM, you better not." 

Looks like you will make a little less profit on this job :).

Morning work till you can't breathe heat index 115 today, and your clothes are drenched in sweat, shower, change clothes, eat, nap, start again at 3 till dusk, remove clothes  that are sopping wet from sweat, pray for wind, and it rains again so it will be steaming again in the morning.  Oh the joys of living in the south, the only good thing I know from dripping sweat all over is that it drowns the chiggers.

Take care of yourself MM, don't be afraid to take a break and sit in the truck with the AC on when its that hot. Missed you at the Pig Roast this year, (though it was kind of like you were there!) ;) ;D

I had never experienced anything like what you're talking about until I landed in Japan. The heat index was 112° and the air was so wet in Tokyo that you could see it like fog. Everything you touched felt sticky. Right now there's a typhoon to the south sending clouds, rain, wind and cooling. Daughter and family make it all worth while, but you all can have this wet heat.
