During this time of year high temps and high humidity sound nice to me. I guess on top of wanting to get back to work (and putting any new toys I get to work) I want the temps to be nice and warm again. I would take 95 and humid any day over the 20 degree day with below zero wind chill like today.

I've been starting to do some estimates and talking to some of last years customers. I'm getting the itch bad. I'll take hot weather over cold any day.

I don't mind cold weather but after a mid feburary heat wave (46-68 degrees for 5 days straight) I'm ready to get back to work. I'll be contacting my customers soon and start grabbing some early work. Might be going to the NY farm show to get out into the air a bit and fuel some of my energy!
