We've had a few little rains but still drier than a popcorn fart. At least the temps have slacked off. Last week the high was 43 one day. Most days have been in the 60s and overcast with a threat of rain but nothing materializes. 

All but a select few cows will be gone next week. Not even sure if ill make any hay this year.

I thought it was hot and humid in the woods yesterday but I am really glad I am not out there today. It's 95 and 60% humidity. I know that's not like the highs they are getting in the northwest, but geez this is miserable. I ain't getting nothing done.

About 85 here got hot after sun came out. Had a deer tick halfway into me. First deer tick Ive seen too, Ive seen probably 100 wood ticks so far and in fact just picked one off me typing this sentence. Looks I got all of the deer tick out. I locked it in a capsule and dated it, if I get symptoms.

Weather forecast was for cold and showers today. Woke up to light snow, barely enough to settle on the ground, but "real" snow, the light fluffy sort, not the sleet / hail we often get. 



 

Other parts of the country are taking a bit more of beating with roads closed, ferries and flights cancelled etc. But just a bit cool here.  :)

Oh yea, hot here too. Well into the 90's. But not too hot to dig rocks.   ;D
No pavement around my place to give it that heat rising affect. That DanG pavement makes it hard to breath for me.
I have to water the peppers in the wind tunnel before the heat hits it.
Work slow, lots of water. Rocks are being carried off up into the bog. In the shade for the ride there and just driving the tractor is not too much like hard work.

Started at 630 70 degrees already lasted till 1030 its 85 now and rising quickly. We have a heat warning. If it gets too bad I might head to the coast to catch the cool ocean breeze. Advantages to Nova Scotia, never more than 40 min drive from ocean, endless beaches, most empty.

Holy hot! I dont even have air conditioner up here yet. When you can smell the dead softwood needles cooking on the ground and the heat radiating off you know its HOT HOT. 
Tomorrow same thing. Keeps this up I might work through the night hours with leds lol

OH man, you ain't kiddin'. Problem is, the nights hours aren't much cooler here. I just checked the graph and it was 78 at midnight last night. Got all the way down to 76 just before day break and the humidity was 96% at dawn. I couldn't even sleep past 3am (gotta get a fan). So I had planned to sleep in today (7am?). Instead I was up at 3:30 and on the road by 6:30. I don't think I am doing too much more today except clean, sharpen and put away tools. The Mule is covered in brush and leaves so I might hose it off. I can handle that, I think.

Im not too far inland so after the sun sets and we got a breeze off the ocean we cool off quick, I take it youre further inland. We get 55-65 degree nights in summer typically

It's been in the 70's at nights here to, like at 3:00 am. ::) Suppose be a high around 70F on Thursday and cooler Friday. Mid 70's tomorrow. Heat waves come to an end in 3 days up here, generally. Normal years. ;D

One more day of the heat here. They predict 94* this afternoon. I've been working outside the past three days in the morning but not today. I've had enough. My wife and I are going out for breakfast and then taking it easy for the rest of the day.

70's here, we had 1/4" rain this morning. I was marking out more thinning, got 26 acres laid out. That was enough tramping in wild raisin bushes for one day. :D

My 50 acre goal. Another 15 or so to go but its harder with the heat.

I'll probably cut around 100 acres. I cut 84 acres last year from mid June to end of October, and 15 cords of firewood besides. I must have cut 25 acres in June already.
