I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am burning up in the Texas heat! We have had 12 days straight of 100+ degree F. It was 108 yesterday!!! I do all my wood working in my garage. I don’t even want to go out there in this heat! I am afraid the wood will burst into flames!! Not to mention I go through too much beer trying to stay cool! How about the rest of y’all? How hot is it where you are?

Well Mike, we are in the 70’s. Starting the morning around 67 and maybe get to 77 or 78, some days, in the evening. A few weeks back we had a hot spell and got up to 90+.

I am refinishing my front porch/deck and am pressure washing so I am staying cool. Have a beer for me.

Interestingly enough, here is So.Cal we usually have 100+ days through most of the summer. I think this year we have only had a handful of days around 100 deg. Been a weird year for sure

Here is Iowa the heat has not been a big problem, but it just does not stop raining. This is the second abnormally wet summer and this is highly unusual.

I have not turned on my sprinkler system all of last year and so far this year and the lawn just keeps on growing. Man, does it ever just keep on growing and with all the rain it’s hard to get out and mow it.

Cozmo,
I’m in Texas as well, but if you think I’m goin’ ta tell ya where all my beer iz yer outa luck! ;-)

But seriously, I’‘ve been staying out of my garage shop as well because of the heat. I will literally have sweat dripping off my hands unless I am standing in front of the fans. So what did I do instead this weekend,...I went out and started staining my deck of ~800sq.ft. But at least the beer was good when I ran out of stain!

Since my shop is air conditioned and my house is not, I spend the 90+ days there. Get lots of stuff done. My wife accuses me of going out there for the AC. One of these days I’m going to actually do some woodwork.

We had a teriffic spring here in the Phoenix area but are sure paying for it now. It has been 108 to 112 here for weeks with no end in site until October. Going up to 115 by Friday. We have had a good monsoon so far with good rain fall but lots of humidity making it feel like 120. I have had the shop shut down since May and will not open it until it cools off hopefully in October. Save the electric bill for the house.

Sure glad we didn’t know any better when I was a kid hauling hay and shoveling grain in 100+ temps :-)) I couldn’t do it now, I know better!

It’s staying right around 100 give or take a few in GEORGIA, but the humidity is killer; a walk to the
mailbox=wet shirt. Come on FALL where are you.
