    My hats off to you guys who live in areas where it is always hot and 100 degree temps are the norm. It got to 103 here on monday, I lasted about 4 hours. 100 on tuesday, i lasted 4 hours, both days high humidity. busted ass today worked 8.5 hours and just about caught up. Figure tomorrow 9 hours and i will be.
    Don't think i could handle a week + of those temps.

    I lasted today until noon, it was in the high nineties with high humidity. Said on radio it felt like 109. My azz was dragging big time I had sweated so bad by dinner and fortunately was finished for the day. Got the 4 Wensday yards done and that was it for the day.

    It got hot around here but I have always worked outside and am somewhat used to the heat and humidity.

    I called it a day @ 1pm, I fixed my water jug with ice this am and then left it on the kitchen counter. 5 hours with no water and I had enough, came home cooled off and went back to work close to home and now a thunderstorm ran me out. It has been hot with little humidity this week here thank goodness. I cant imagine 95 plus and high humidity.

  8. think about all the men and women overseas fighting for us and all the gear they have to wear, now it doesn't seem so hot here.

    Come on down here and get the full experience kimosavee. I would take 100 degree heat anyday as long as the humidity was low but down here we usually get mid to high nineties with very high humidity. Takes some stamina.
