August weather

I'm wearing a hoodie standing next to a fire. Had sweat pants and hoodie on while mowing all day and still froze. I'm already talking about what needs what this season to plow snow. I hope winter dont come early

You must be thin blooded. Weather says ya'll are in the high 70's all week long, which is perfect weather. We would die for that down here. And early winter? Did you see my post hehe. We're usually in the 100's in June. Our summer is just getting started. 102 with 68% humidity day temps. here, talking about brutal. I'm drinking 2-3 gow per day. :0 Weather also shows ya'll getting some good rain? We're praying for rain here. Our lakes our 50+ feet below, bone dry, and our soil is drying and foundations starting to crack once again. I'd fall over if we had some high 70's / low 80's with good rain down here right now, that'd be our spring. :0

There was a news article from a Pittsburgh paper talking about the leaves turning this month in that area. One house I mow was covered with leaves this past Thursday. A few others had some here and there.

Usually the lawns that don't water are burnt crispy and get skipped this time of year. I even tried to burn out my back yard by cutting it right to the dirt. It was green in two days and grew like crazy

Sounds like some need to move to Texas.

Chorpus Christi, feels like 110 today.
