    Extremely hot summer! High 83 today & terrible humidity and it going to get worse. That heat index hits 100+ & I'll be working half days just to survive. :dizzy:

    I grew up on the Florida east coast, so don't forget those afternoon seabreeze thunderstorms. Just one more reason to get your work done early ;)

    Yes, I luv the summer rains here. Temp will dramatically drop after a good rain. We kinda have a monsoon rainy season here, Storms on a daily basis. 20% chance last Wed. 5 drops of rain hit my windshield lol. The humidity here is torture. 71% currently as I type. High today is suppose to be 90! Temp tonight 63 degrees.

    True the temp drops after monsoon rains, but by then lawns are so wet you can't mow anyway!

    I would predict all this rain will result in an increase in business ,but that already came true. I love the traditional Florida summers with the afternoon showers.

    Yes an increase in business but most can't handle what they have now with this rain. Grass and shrubs growing fast and can't keep up.
