 First winter Ed dove with me, gathering logs, in Central Florida, he was wearing 2 wetsuits, and came up blue after only 2 hours. Took all night for him to get warmed up again.  ::)

It was 62 when I got into my car at 8:15. It's supposed to get into the high 70's today but a beautiful breeze is blowing through. This is Maine. The way life should be. If only it would stay for the next 6 months...Looking forward to cool September morns and eves.

We had 90's and high humidity for a week about a week ago. That's all of that I can take!

Here is the Forecast here in Mid-GA today.....

Friday, August 10, 2007...
Today Mostly sunny with a slight chance of showers and storms. Excessive heat warning with highs around 104.

Yeah we gave all the heat warnings and stuff too. My shop kiln is too hot. I got to cut a hole in the side and vent the heat out of it instead of recirculating it.

You got that right.  Temps in the 40s along the Gulf Coast, panhandle, and Big Bend areas will freeze you right to the bone.  It *is* hard to explain, but I know exactly what you mean.

I've had visits from some of our Northern members over the last few winters.  I don't get much static out of those folks about our "mild" winters, anymore. :)

I was wishing I'd a grabbed my Carhart Blizzard Coat outta the truck before Dee left  ;D ;D :) :)  After the sun went down if it wasn't for the fire in the Dodge wheel I'd a froze  ;D ;) :D 

It's pretty DanG warm here today at 85.  I've only seen it over a 100 once and that was in Imlay city 10 years ago.  The bank thermometer read 103.  The hottest I've ever seen it here at home was 97.  That was actual air temp without any hummugity figured in.  Stay  8) 8) fellas  :) :)

105 degrees was the high.  It was 92 at 10:00 p.m.  Simply awful.  Supposed to cool down to the high 90's next week.

Greenville, SC (my future home) hit an all-time record 105 Friday afternoon. Maybe I'll build the whole house underground, instead of just the basement....

It was very hot in Athens, Ga. on Saturday and Dodgy Loner would not answer his phone when we called for help in moving furniture. :( ;D ;D  Thats ok Dodgy, we got everything unloaded and were resting in the cool air by 4pm.

After a one-day respite, it's about to be even hotter in Dublin, GA.

Predicted actual for    Tuesday:         105 F
                                Wednesday:           107 F
                                Thursday:   103 F

Any volunteers to help me start a new sawing job on Wednesday?  It's not much,
just a bunch (40?) of short logs, loose bark logs, and miscellaneous left-behinds from
a clear cut.  Plenty of cat faces in the bunch too! Oh, did I mention they all are to be cut into 1X6s?

Neighbor found out I was on the prowl in north Missouri so he asked me to help him house tobacco.  Forecast was for a heat index of 117...it never made it that high but I still quit at noon.  He called me a pansy. ;D :D ;D :D

Still, right across the Missouri river in the foundry at Atchison Casting I would guess the heat index bumping 150 degrees or higher.  No wonder so many quit round this time of year.

I'm thinking that Wed. saw time may be from 6:30 AM, til about noon.

I stayed with it until 3:00 one day last week.  Heat index was 119, actual 103.
Took a long break, then tuned a piano.  I went back to stack lumber from 7-9 PM.

I couldn't get to sleep that night until my legs had wound down a couple of hours.

That was a little much.  TOO much!

Larry, you sound like a smart pansy to me. On second thought, you might be less than smart for even helping to house tobacco at all. ::)

dail_h, I am not Larry, but I do know they had and I assume still have a burley market in Weston Mo. I think some  burley tobacco farmers moved to that area way back and took their tobacco growing expertise with them.

Dail, Bob was right about our market in Weston.  Only two counties in Missouri and one county across the river in Kansas grow it.  We air cure our tobacco by hanging it on sticks from rails in very tall tobacco barns.  There might be three or more men handing the tobacco from the wagon, hand over hand until you get the rails filled at the top of the barn.  Hot nasty work. 

Neighbor had a crew hired, but there was couple of no-shows which is pretty typical on hot days or for a few days after they get paid. :(
