It's not the heat, it's the humanity... ::)

In the sun w/ midwest humidity I'm done at 90.  In the shade I'm fine til 99.

100 and I'm sittin and sippin indoors.

But then again I don't make my living at hard labor.  I don't know how the ancestors made it in full wool dress and biting flies with no screens to keep 'em out.  Of course they didn't live much past 40.  Wait a minute...I'M FORTY!!!!

Good to be alive today...fer sure
I used to think I could fix DanG near anything...now I know I can...or I think I can...or maybe I can?

You know, the last time I made remarks about the weather - Jeff made my picture start snowing...

I am a little afraid if I mention where we live, it doesn't ever get really hot - but since they are visiting - I don't think he will mind...

So, how did I end up here anyway?

I hiked across death valley on a day of full sun and a temp around 95-100 degrees.
There was almost no humidity and I could barley sweat it was so dry.
But the heat really wasn't bad at all, so I can honestly say I don't know when it's "just too DanG hot".

I want to hear about this trek across Death Valley.   

Isn't that the place that stopped the folks from making it to Calyforn-i-oh?

And here was Furby, scampering across one morning in his blue suede tennis shoes, basketball shorts, oversized muscle shirt and backwards baseball cap. :D

When is it too hot for what? Working in the forest? Going sailing?

Never too hot to work in my woods. Hope it stays cool enough for Jon on Thursday when he's over working. Sunday was a hot one here. I wasn't sittin' on a porch. I was bombing around on my bulldozer pushing stumps out of my future front yard and skidding maples an white pine. Hubby had a fan on him in the backhoe as he pulled stumps. I don't get no fan in the dozer. Hmmm.

And, yes, except when I had to get out to help cut branches off trees, I was in my usuall "its nearly 100 degrees out and 90% humidity" attire. And, no, I don't have pictures and never will have pictures - so don't ask.

Hubby wanted to borrow my handkerchief hanging out my back pocket to plug the exhaust on the wheeler (technical difficulties) and I wouldn't let him have it.

"Can I have that rag?"
"What rag?"
"That one in your pocket."
"That's not a rag, that's my hankie. What do you want it for?"
"To plug the exhaust. What do you want it for?"
"To wipe the sweat off me all day."

We decided to use something other than my handkerchief. I realize soot on my face is not uncommon, but I try not to do it on purpose.

Never too hot to go sailing either.

But it was definitely too hot to cook inside on my stove. It is too hot to cook food indoors at about 80 degrees.

When i was a kid i worked a couple of summers on my neighbors truck farm tending melons and sweet potatoes. He was a old black man named John Neil he spent most of his life behind a mule. He had the most beautiful and clear field hollar i have ever heard, he could talk to you from 400 yds away and sound like he was standing right next to you. (I cant do) Any way that first day i went over there in jeans, tee shirt,boots and a cap. We started planting slips at day lite and by noon i thought i would die. He let me off early and after supper he came over and we all went to tg&y to get me some work clothes. cotton kaki pants, a straw cowboy hat that was over sized so you could put a cloth in front to keep the sweat out of your eyes and these thin thin cotton long sleeve shirts. The shirts made all the differance keep the sleeves rolled down and buttoned because when you get hot the blood goes to your extremeties to cool, the shirt would get wet from sweat and when it evaporated it would cool the shirt and keep you cool well cooler than without it. But they were so thin that they dont hold the heat to you. It had to look funny to see a old black man and a white kid hoeing a melon patch in hundred degree weather in long sleeves but it was the best way to do it. I would sweat so much that in the evenings when i got home and dried i would have a film of salt on me. Being the only kid left at home i still had to tend to the garden and animals before i could clean up and eat. Might sound like im fussing but i kinda miss it and i know i miss John.
95 is to hot for the first hour and then i get sorta use to it
55 is my favorite temp.
humity is a soggy mess

An old family friend and my Grandpa's best friend always wore cotton flannel even making hay in the summer.  He'd buy new shirts in the fall and were them all winter.  When summer came the shirts had been worn and washed so that they were a bit thread bare.  This allowed for evaporation and ventilation but also held some moisture for cooling.  He swore by it and he grew up living and working in Northern Michigan lumber camps and learned this from the crews he worked with.  His mother was a cook and he came up through the ranks and was teamster.  After the lumber boom was over he worked as a manager on a couple large farms around here and always kept a team of horses.  He loved his team so much that he couldn't stand the thought of someone else possibly mistreating them and as part of his will the horses were to be sent for slaughter as soon as possible after his death.  They were

It was brutal on the week-end trying to put up the 1st row of logs.The winds were sucking up the polution from S. Ontario & the Ohio Valley, the humidity & the polution MADE US DIZZY on Sat. afternoon. Hit a high of 40c on the floor of the cabin. We had to go down to the lake for 4 swims in the afternoon. The lake water temperture went from 22C in the morn to 25 in the afternoon. Sure hope it cools off for this week-ends work. I have a back-hoe coming to put up the walls of the cabin.

My grandad always wore long johns.  He had a summer set that had short sleeves.  But, he used to always wear long sleeve shirts.  They were normally cotton, like a dress shirt.  He also always wore a felt hat.  And, he was a carpenter, so he was outside in most types of weather.

It is already 21C, about 73F, here at 10:30 in the morning which is real nice. However, The Weather Network says 38 for this afternoon. That is about 108F. HOLY KEERAP, how hot is that :o Supposed to stay in the 30's all week, I'm not used to this.

Wow guess I am statistically weird ::) :D
I figure anything over 75F is too hot, for working or playing.  When I want it hotter I just fire up the Sauna and sit in 175F and cook for a bit ;D

Out my way we can pick the temp we want. if  I  go down the hill it's 20 degrees hotter and up the hill it's 20 degrees cooler.  I put off going down the hill if it is already near 90 at my house,  and I'll go up the hill and take care of business.  I like 70 degrees in the late afternoon and mid 40's in the early morning. I have been in the desert in the mid 120's, and even though it is dry it is unbareably hot, but still better than any big city at 100 degrees.
