Today is to be like yesterday, working outside is supposed to be fun. Oh well off to work. Have about 100 medium size trees to trim, at least they can all be reached from the ground with 3 or 4 6 ft. extensions. Water is on the menu. New records since the '50s.

RE: Weather

If I interpret the weather report you posted, it is hot as h@ll and humid to boot. You have about 100 trees to trim in this weather. Wow.... Oh, yes water should be on the menu. I hope you found some shade and took care of yourself.

RE: Weather

Cooler today, only 84 hope to get a lot done.

RE: Weather

It has been sunny and in the low eighties, and the early rain is such a blessing, generally it still would be dry and the well would be low and that makes a lot of gardening impossible. This month we had lots of early rain and the soil is soft, ideal for getting things cleaned up, some planting done before the winter rains begin, I am a happy camper! Making up for lost time.

RE: Weather

Don, glad it will be cooler today, 84 is still hot in my book when working outside, so take care.
Lilo, I'm with you about being grateful for the early rains. It sure helps a lot, especially since we have had a number of days of hot weather.
