I started at 4:30 this morning.
Did the watering, some detail on the gutter work, and a second coat on the little porch roof.

It's 10:15 and already 110 out there. Humidity started at 20% this morning.

I think I'm done for today.

Fark, it's gross out there!

That's what I said today. It was 102 and about 75% humidity. I started to work and said to hell with it and headed inside where it's a steady, cool 72 and that's where I stayed all day.

Frank, looks like this might wander over to your place. Lots of wind and lightening here. No rain so far.

Yup, it got here. It started while I was mowing this afternoon. There was lots of thunder and lightening but not a lot of rain or wind. There was enough to get me to quit mowing though. Any excuse is good enough. It continued to rumble and flash but the real show started about 9 o'clock. It was pretty wild and the rain came down in buckets. I guess that I'm going to have to finish mowing tomorrow after it dries out.

The guy is supposed to start rebuilding my dam tomorrow morning. We'll see. It's going to be pretty wet out there.

And just like that, someone turned the season switch to fall. It's been a hot summer up here. One thing I noticed is that as soon as the sun goes down, it gets cold. Like fall jacket and pants cold. I even turned on the fireplace for a bit today. It was down to 63 in the house.

We're going to get a little taste of fall tomorrow nite with a low forecast of 31*F. I plan to get up about 4AM and monitor the temp so I can turn the sprinkler on the veggie garden.

It's been nasty here for the past 3 days. Laura skirted to our east but we didn't see much rain or wind out of her. What we did get was incredible humidity. The temps have been running around 100F but the humidity has been as high as as 85%, giving a heat index around 115F. The air has been so thick that you can almost bite and chew it. It gets hard to breathe.

The wind needs to turn around and blow this stuff out of here. That's not supposed to happen until the middle of next week. After two days of hiding out in the house in the a/c, I was bored and went outside for about four hours. I was drenched, soaked in sweat. I'll tell you this, whoever invented the shower deserves the Nobel Prize. I spent 30 minutes in there and it was wonderful.

The guy pretty much finished rebuilding my dam yesterday. He got it all seeded and mulched just in time for the rain to start. It's been pouring off and on since yesterday afternoon and it's still at it. It's supposed to keep at it for the next three days. Ironically, I don't want the rain at this exact moment. I have a bunch of tree limbs and branches that I want to put on the bottom of the lake and can't get in there because it is starting to fill back up and it's too wet for the tractor. Ah!, the best laid schemes of mice and men. The cooler weather is nice though.

Now you'll have to excuse me. I have to put a slicker suit on and go take the trash out.

Major thunder storm now. We're in fall season. Last week it was still hot enough for shorts. About mid week, the temperature dropped and it's now pants and jacket weather. And single digit temps when the sun goes down.

I'm planning on pulling the boat out soon and switching gears to fall hunting season for the next 6 weeks or however long fall lasts until "gasp" snow hits.(usually late October early November)

The rain finally quit yesterday for a few days. It's only in the low 90s but after all the rain, the humidity is horrendous.

I tried to get an early (for me( start this morning but the tractor which started perfectly on Friday when I checked was deader that a Dodo. I finally got it started and mowed my way down in to the lake bottom. It was wet, soft and muddy down there. I decided to swap out tractors and use the little one to run stumps branches and other stuff down in there. If I get it stuck at least I can use the bigger tractor to pull it out. Well, that was the plan. I get the little tractor running no problem and swing out of the barn. Pheeeew. The left rear tire came off the rim. I nurse it up to the barn and jack it up. I'll mess with it later. Right now I'm using the Gator to run stuff down in to the lake bottom. I'll work at it as long as I can and then quit until tomorrow.
