Heat index was 106F this afternoon, been that way all week.  Still had several hours of work to do but could not stay in the death ray any longer.  Came inside for a bit to sit by a fan when I looked at my wife and said "it's raining" - she must have thought I was having heat stroke since there was no noise or anything but i could SMELL it.  Sure enough - .68" or rain and a good 25 degree temp drop.  Went back out and enjoyed working in the rain.  Now I just hope my boots dry out on the dryer tonight.

Oh my, none of it.  I do still wear the same style 'pith' helmet, and that apron has been replaced twice.
 
I do still have that customer and it was his logs that I was sawing last week.  LINK

Here is the first time that I sawed for that customer and where that 'HOT' picture was taken:  LINK

Only 3 shirts today and there will not be any more because the rest of today will be my Saturday off.   8)

We are forecast to be cooler next week, only in the high 80's-low 90's.  I can deal with that even though my Monday's sawing is no where close to shade.   I gots my umbrella.  ;D

Been baling what we call prairie hay the last couple weeks.  Native grass.  Really had to watch the radiator on the tractor, so much fine dust.  Great relief on Saturday, only about 90.  Seems cool compared to the 100's. Now if we could just get some rain.

We finished in the woods and started doing foundation stonework at the job, I rigged up a blue shade tarp, better than direct sun, more of an easy bake oven  :D. Our water hoses are black, you gotta watch that first blast!

Well sunshine doesn't make it harder to breathe. One of my neighbors is on the second day of burning brush too slowly and it is beginning to wear on me.

I mowed the lawn yesterday and finished dripping wet with sweat.  smiley_sweat_drop 
Last night I called my customer for today's sawing and he said; "too hot, lets wait another day".   smiley_sun 
No argument from me.

The weather that we had at the Pig Roast hasn't gotten here yet.  :-X

It hasn't gotten here either, mornings are nice but the heat graph shoots up at 8am. High heat warnings here again today. Time to go saw but I may knock off early.

I looked at the cloud yesterday afternoon in the NW, and someone must have gotten rain, we got a few sprinkles.  Surprise this morning, 70 degrees.  Thought I was going to have to find a sweat shirt.

Been away for a couple of weeks. Came home Saturday and AC was not working.  House was a humid oven.  Not a very comfortable weekend.  Being without AC in Georgia in August is a very poor option.  That is why AC was invented  :).

I know your misery, Danny.  I keep a small window unit to use in the bedroom and can use the attic fan for a hot, humid breeze.

The attic fan brought in the hot humid air and I had to turn it off in the middle of the 100% humidity night.  Trying to sleep and the sheets were sticking to my body.
