Graybeard, I’ve seen first hand how spotty rain can be. It certainly could rain for you and still miss all the cut hayfields over the fence from you.... :nod:

Put ice in your hat while working outside doing work, letting ice melt down and keeping your head cool, preventing heat stroke. Keep a LARGE ice chest around of ice water, pouring ice cold water over you when over heating. Drink plenty of fluids, take breaks when necassary. It's doable, I prefer the winter but I am having to fence new unused pastures now because of the drought. Usually no snakes, scorpions and mosquitoes, except during an 80 degree Texas winter.

If your lucky what you do today you'll have to live with tomorrow. I guess if your planning to work till you drop dead, your going about it in the right way.

I am beginning to believe this global warming thing. That far north and that hot.

It's not unusual, we have cacti growing wild.. just prickly pears, not Saguaros.. I think our all time record high is 112F, that was set in the 50's

109 here yesterday. I took the wife out for dinner. Coming home at 8:45 it had cooled down to 100 according to the truck thermometer. Clear down to 97 by the time I parked it at the house.

Red worked outside in weather till he was 87. And he dam sure didn't need to . He was better heeled than you and grit put together. Some blood lines out there still produce men. Yours dont have enough man to speak here.

And I bet I can catch bigger fish out my front door than can in the bay tommorow. Good luck though.... ;-)

At least I've been successful at running a business. Unlike yourself.

Those ground hornets like to hit you in the back of the head after you've run over their nest mowing weeds.
