Since the last time it rained 59 days ago, the humidity hasn't been to bad here and if you can find some shade the heat is tolerable (for a while if you don't do anything). I'm assuming this is what it is like to live in Arizona. Repaired some electric fence this morning between 7 and 8 (cooler than doing yesteday afternoon). The wind was still and pleny of heat remained from yesterday. Raised a cloud of dust in the pasture just driving thru it that just hung in the air.
I've got 20 acres I haven't cut once. It's all gone to seed, and I'm going to bushog now and cut in Sept. We get rain at least every other day. My area there are literally thousands of crop acres which won't be planted. Low quality hay will be plentiful.
Pumpkins (I just have 2 plants) are growing like Kudzu.
Cold is a relative thing. I guess that if you live upnort, then you have the right to complain but it never really gets cold here. Not for very long, anyway. It's the heat that gets to me. We need some rain around here or it is gonna get bad real soon.
Dude, I'm serious about the truck washing thing. And if it works, I'll drive down to, where is it? Caldwell? Or that other "C" town I'm always confusing it with, and try it at your place. Maybe we can get a convoy headed down there. Buncha clean trucks can't be wrong. You know how tornadoes find trailer parks? Rain finds clean trucks.
If it won't rain during hurricanes I doubt any of those other things would be successful either. The only thing I haven't tried is to get rid of the 4x4 truck. After bothering neighbors to come pull me out of mud puddles for several years, it stopped raining about the time I bought it. Haven't had much use for it since.
Come to think of it... I cleaned the gutters and it has not rained since. They were full of crap from a huge Youpon Holly we have growing in the middle of the front deck, taller than the house and sheds like a sumbich. Overflows the gutters and makes a huge mess. I cleaned them out the last time it rained.
They should be about full of leaves again, though, so it's all good! :shock: :roll:
104f yesterday! I'm stuck inside with the airconditoner going.. Gemonee I hope the electricity doesn't go out! :shock: Right now I'd have to go stay in the frozen foods dep at HEB :lol2: Did anyone see the Married With Children where they did that?
