    Are any of you're area's in an extreme heat, humidity situation ? Through next Wednesday, our area landscapers, LCO'S and or their employees ,will be toiling with brutal temps and humidities in the danger zone. If you're in areas experiencing heat, humidity condition's in the red zone,you, and or you're employees drink water and work safe!

    In the 90's for the next week yet and brutal humidity.
    We went from being 3.5" down on precipitation to now being 4" above average as well, all in a matter of about a 2 month period.
    The grass and the weeds are in a major competition..........:dizzy:

    It is going to be hot here. It is good to mix half Gaterade and half water it balances your electrolites, keeps you from getting too many cramps, and allowes your brain to process sugars, and vitamin b12. Basically it will lessen the chance of a heat stroke ( some of the handy knowlege I have learned being a firefighter/paramedic down here). Work safe everyone

    107 today. Humidity is low where I am. When I came in from the heat was soaked. Between Rapid City and Sturgis they have a fire burning, last time I checked it was at about 2000 acres. Structures lost.
