Man! That is tough working out in that stuff I'm sure! The most I've worked out in here is like 95-100 deg at a lawn and garden place. It was brutal and had to take a lotta water drinking breaks and get in the shade when possible.
Hopefully it won't be too bad for u this year.

We get about 8 good months of mowing here as well (March into Oct.). It's only usually ugly 2 months out of the year. This year I was out in shorts in January with temps into the high 60's.

really after the first couple of seasons, you get used to it. i keep a 5 gallon jug on the trailer, and always visit it when i get to the yard, then after mowing, after trimming, after blowin everything off. so i usually fill it every 2-3 days.
