How are we enjoying summer
« on: July 16, 2005, 04:04:11 PM »

I do a lot of sawing though. some for materials I need and some for customers.  about  100,000 feet in last year .  for the last six weeks i've probley only worked 8 full day's.   about the time my t shirt is 60 percent drenched i quit .  it's been in the 80's most of the time,  has it been unbeleivably hot this summer or am i just getting to old to deal with it  ..... cant wait till september   R L    >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

We've had too many days in the mid 90's and we are in upstate NY, much farther north than should be getting these temps. I'll gladly take 60's days and 30's nights. Those are my favorite temps. We had 93 again today and the humidity was in the upper 90's too. Seems like when it gets like this there is never a breeze either.

No logging this time of year, too much brush to see where we're goin. Saw early morning and again late afternoon work in the shop or snooze a little during the mid day heat ;D Been extremely dry here and hot. Corn in the area looks really bad...uneven heights and leaves all curled up trying to hide from the sun. Tassles are shooting now, but with no rain in site it might be a tough winter for the farmers and for me buying skidder fuel (hay)

80s. Dawg. I'd love to see that number on a consistent basis around here in the summer. Our yearly avg. humidity is in the 60s and of course combine a Texas summer with it and, well, 80s sounds nice.

Been HOT and dry here too.  We got an inch of rain over the fourth that areas around us didn't but it's about gone.  A cold front Monday MAY bring us rain but then back into the upper eighties and dry again.

It was 92 when we just came in for the day. Watered all of the new trees we've planted the last two years, they were real dry. The corn and beans are doing pretty good considering. At least today there's some wind blowing, last few days it's been almost still through the day.

I'm ready for fall harvest and hunting seasons. :)

Been hot and humid here, so decided to see what Spokane and San Francisco are like this week.  Wife and I are leaving wed for about 2 wks.  Got two brothers in Washington state and like San Francisco so much last year got to go back and see some of the stuff we missed.

I went out to the truck the other morning at 4:30 AM and the temp was 81 at that time. I have about a hours drive to my mill and we like to have it running by 6:15 AM try to do most of the sawing before 11:00 eat lunch then cut some more at a much slower pace till 3:00 load up and go  to the house. Fall can't get here soon enough for me.

Well, its been 85-95 with high humidity here the past few weeks.  And that doesn't mean we stop sawing so I drink lots of water and stick my head in the freezer when I get a chance 8)

Check out this map http://www.weather.com/maps/news/forecastsummary/index_large.html    The long blue line down through the Dakotas is a cold front due on the East coast by Tue PM.  Will be relief for a few days, anyway - Deep South, sorry your cold front will not be coming till..............?????

 :D :D Complainers complainers. All winter I heard you guys wishing for summer. :D :D I work in all kinds of weather, but try to avoid the rain if I can. I hate being wet all day, but sometimes it's from sweat. Nasty ::)

When it's 10 below in mid January you'll never hear me wish it was 90 degrees, 75 yes but never 90 ;)  I'd take snow and cold over this crap anyday

After three years of mostly below normal temperatures and an especially cool summer last year, we're having hot weather, too. We average abut 6 days of 90 or above each year.  We've had far more than that this summer with more on the way.

Nothing to compare with the weather in the '30's, though, when most of the summer records for Wisconsin were set.  A little before my time, but I've heard about it from my parents and my wife's parents. Day after day of temperatures above 100. My father-in-law said they often slept on the floor because it was a little cooler than in bed. That would make the weather we're having now look good.  Everything is relative, I guess.
