It's not that cool here, but we haven't been out of the mid 80's in a while. Which is cool for NC this time of year.

Our average high in August is 87 degrees. We have had only one day in August where it got to 87. I stopped using the A/C in my house. My electric bill is 1/3 of a typical summer. For me it has been a great summer. I always work when it hits 100, so this year has been great. Low humidity also.

You got keep your mouth closed or you will get grass stains on your teeth. I always try to, but I swallow a few bugs each year. Normally on the rider. You know you are in trouble when they hit the back of your throat before you know it.

I hear you. I rarely want to eat when it's 102 and I'm sweating. I want nothing but ice cold water.

You know I get it worse than you, if only slightly, lol. This weather is the usual here, which makes me crazy to keep mowing! lol I guess I will eventually move to a location where they have the most rainfall and snowfall in the winter, if I decide to move.

If you plan to be in this business for a while, I'd move to Hawaii.

Year round' growing season. Enough said.
