Was 68F this morning early and has reached 85F this afternoon. AC has been on a couple days for sure. ;) The air is changing now though, NW wind coming in. Be in the 70's tomorrow and less humid. It never rained in the woods, but my cloths was just as wet. :D Nice to change them cloths for the drive home. ;)

New Husqvarna 555 FX brush saw working good, but still runs through a tank in an hour. At least these have adjustable carb jets and idle screw. Might be adjusting it a little bit. ;)
Move'n on.

60 now but going uo to the high 80s. Humidity is supposed to be lower. Still moderate drought here but parts of the state have gone to normal. Not much more chance for rain until the weekend
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

If nothing else I'm always a good last resort or the guy to hold up as a bad example

Another cold weather spell forecast here. Not super cold, but down close to freezing. I've not advertised firewood for sale lately, but have 5 small loads lined up to deliver over the next week. Just word of mouth, "Anyone got dry firewood for sale?" "Yeah, call this guy..."  :D

I'm trying my best to keep it a hobby  ::)

70's and dry weather today, no muggies. Good cut'n weather, although I prefer 50F. :D

Adjusted the jets on the saw today, takes less gas now. No loss of power. Good thing, I'm cutting 30-35 foot tall fir down. Someone never showed them (mills) the criteria, 21 feet for softwood, max height.  :)

62 this morning. Had a shower that lasted a  hour. Heard some thunder  before it came, but no hard wind or really no hard rain either. I was inside eating supper when it came. Went back out after supper.

All we had yesterday morning and this morning was short duration showers, never even made the ground wet under the trees. 86F here right now, but not real humid. I'll be watering the garden tomorrow. I think the corn should be ready in 3 weeks after it flowers, right? I know it is almost 7 feet tall now. I'm not a big corn eater, so I don't plant much. Just enough for a taste, that's all it takes. ;)

Got to 83F today before the cloud cover moved in. Today we had the first hodge podge with new taters, string beans and carrots. Fried up some ground beef. Also a serving of cukes, which we have been eating for awhile form the garden. Also fresh strawberries from NS, which we have been enjoying for 3 weeks now with real ice cream on top. :)

Been a family of wild turkeys scratching in the garden. ::)

See'n 2 cobs per stalk forming on the corn, even as many as three. Must be the variety, usually only get one with this modern corn.

Move'n on.

Was 66F this morning and heavy fog. It is now 84F and lots muggy. By Wednesday it's going to get drier air from a cold front, but still 80 and dry and sunny into Friday. Said showers tonight and tomorrow, I wouldn't wait for it. :D

Was 72F here this morning and got to 82F this afternoon, but not as muggy. Showered in the night and some fog. Woods was wet, but ground under the trees was dry and tree stems was dry. Suppose to be showery tomorrow again and probably no sun. We have not had a rain, like pea sized, in months, just them grass wetting mists. A lot of gardens around are a loss. No one dares water from their well. I sure don't. Just creek water.

Well it's been real hot and muggy for over a week now. Since I threw my back out last Thursday it was pretty easy to just become a bum and let it heal up. Even sitting in a chair I was sweating and sleeping wasn't easy for a few nights. Today it was dang hot too, but better high of 87 or so but less humidity. In the afternoon/evening the breeze picked up and made it more tolerable, until the power went out. That lasted a few hours and I sat outside reading a lumber drying text. The wife whipped up a cold dinner. About 45 minutes ago a line of storms came through and dumped some pretty good rain which is just tapering off now. I suppose that's good because the ground is so hard and dry, if you peed on it, it would just bead up where it landed. ;D
 Hopefully a little cooler tomorrow, I am hoping to get back into working, gently.

Sunny and hot here, mid 30's celsius (high 90's for most of you). Second crop of hay coming off and corn looks almost ready. I went with my gf to the farmers market yesterday, the mask was DanG uncomfortable in the heat but it is what it is. She is scared of infecting her 92 year old father.
Lots of fruit and vegetables available but I felt prices are exorbitant. 8 bucks for a small basket of cherries? They are almost finished, peaches and apricots are just coming in.

I have 85 at almost 5:30 pm. Been cooling off in the mornings. I have the window open, but I refuse to close it.  ;D  I just grab a blanket and let that 60 air come into the bedroom.

Last couple of days have been like August weather, dry and cool and in the high 70's F. Northerly breeze, fall's a coming. ;D Only 80F on the porch when the sun hits there in late afternoon.  No rain, just the water wagon. Need some hurricane rains up here, not getting any of them. Only mow lawn here once a month so it don't turn to straw. Brother bush hogged the rough areas and there is nothing green there now.
Move'n on.

Speaking of rain, we might get some Tuesday from that hurricane. We could use it. Not many showers here.

I have been trying to plan my days the night before by looking at the forecast info from a few sources. The heat has been so high that I am looking for ways to get more done around the weather. 
 Todays weather seems to be opposite the forecast. The forecast was for chance of rain in the AM then likely light rain in the afternoon. I was awakened to rain early this morning and we have been getting light bands of rain working through for the last 6 hours, but now the radar indicates it is passing and will clear for the afternoon. I had hoped to get a log milled this morning before the rain came, now it looks like I might do it this afternoon. It's cool enough to wear pants again after several weeks straight in shorts.
 Temp is in the low 70's, light breeze and .10" of rain so far. I love the sound and taste of a cool summer rain, so I have been sort of dealing with it like a snowstorm, just sitting her and enjoying it with another cup of coffee waiting to get to work when it is done. :)
