    My guys & gals are now putting in only about 30 hours a week now, because of the heat & humidity ---- it's oppresive right now, so we're backing off. We may also begin working Monday thru Thursdays soon -- giving them a 3-day weekend until the temps cool down. Anybody else in the same boat?:usflag:

    That's why I work my tail off in the Spring. I know everything's going dormant in July. It may be really hot, but that just means I need to take a long weekend & go to the lake!

    I hear ya!

    After my second app I am done until my late summer/fall app.

    All I have been doing is treating a few trees and shrubs, killing moles and doing a ton of quoting.

    I am glad I am not forced to work in this freak'n heat. Going to feel like over 100 deg tomorrow.

    Stayn in the house!

    OH is hot enough for me!

    Over 100 today with serious humidity!

    You guys are probably a little more used to it....remember in about 4 months we will probably be below freezing!

    Come up here and work then and we will see who wears the panties!
