We have a work weekend at the lease, spreading a few yards of stone, putting some drainage on roads fecked up by the logging company and moving a box blind.  This is going to suuuuuuuuuuuck in the heat.

I have not left the house for more than 30 minutes since monday.
Really 3 times total is less than an hour.
Florida if it ain't raining it is hotter than hades.

It has been a pretty mellow summer so far. On the few weeks it has been hot I hide in the pool.

I would die working outside in the heat.

We got spoiled by the last 3-4 summers not being as hat as normal. This year, yeah, it's making up. Low 90's but humid as all get out. Then it will rain for 15 minutes and kick off even more humidity.

Never cools down at night, either. I get up around 5 AM and it's still 75 dF.

Maybe this week had a breeze but the two prior weeks were hellish........

 

I work outside four days a week for ten hours.........

 

Talk to Frank teacher about the heat outside by us..........

 

It Sucks............

 I'm now the caretaker of 5 acres out here that was once home to a construction company. It's mostly overgrown, and littered throughout with construction detritus. Good times!

My wife refuses to get up early, and then is pissed that I don’t want to work in the heat.

Heat index is over 100 today. She goes out and works in the yard, then gets overheated and doesn’t feel well

Stupid
