    ....I could feel alot of heat rising up from the grass while I was mowing but when I turned the mower around on the concrete pavement the heat went away and it felt cool even at 98 degrees. Heat index was around 110 today or more I think. I was mowing around 3:00 after getting off from my full time job in an air conditioned building. I don't know how you full-time guys do this in the heat all day long day after day of July and August temperatures.

    i work 50hrs in the a/c a week and still manage to get 31 yards done. do you drink pop at work if so stop drink ice tea or water. its a good idea to keep water with you when you are mowing. i just put a water cooler on my trailer this year and it is the best improvemnt i have made.

    It was so hot today that the thermometer had a funeral parlor fan flappin' in the wind.

    I know one thing. You Yankees ain't got to deal with bahai and let me tell you this.............dry bahai is the hardest thing in the south to cut.

    Supposed to be getting back into our summer time weather pattern today, temperatures are supposed to go back down to the low 90's and rain moving back in the forecast.

    Had me a belly full of this hot dry stuff.:blob2:

    It is so hot that the birds are using pot holders to pull the worms out of the ground, and the cows are giving evaporated milk!

    It was so hot that I'm glad I'm UP NORTH!!!!

    KY blue ain't hard to cut at all.
    There is plenty of beer here.
    There are lakes and woods to go to that are cooler.
    If you are complainin about the heat now, come back and complain about it in 5 months.

    I'll stay here with all the southern licence plates that come here to live in the summer. Heat Birds. Not as popular as snow birds but they drive just as bad.

    Have a cool day, and no offense my southern bro's.
