Its even been relatively hot here in Michigan. We've had several 90+ degree days here and being surrounded on three sides by water, pretty darned humid. I feel for you folks down south and I'm not sure how you do it. Since having heart issues, I just can't take the heat at all anymore and I think if I lived where you do, I'd have to find a cooler place to be.

Wow, that lightening is very dangerous. I've been caught out in on my big tractor, with headphone on, and just singing along and WHAM! Just about peed my pants...

I do have a window air conditioner on my agenda for the garage. I have to insulate the attic above it first but figure that can wait until this fall when it cools down enough to be up there.

I know for a fact this winter I will not miss the snow and cold we were subjected to in South Dakota.

Yep! Baldwin county gets a little hotter than we do, by several degrees. AC would be nice, but the old barn would take too much to fix up for that. Lot's of air leaks etc. Thinking on adding a 20x30 building this fall. A roll up would be nice and the buildings aren't very much installed on a pad. It's nice to live on 70 acres and I can do anything I want...lol You could not pay me to live in a city. It would be sort of the Rambo, first blood where the colonel tells the idiot cop that, I didn't come here to rescue Rambo from you, I came here to rescue you from him"

How hot is South Dakota right now....lol

I would love 60's all week long.

Nice! Mine is just a little 300CC fuel injected 2 stroke

Typically around 68hp and wheelie on command in every gear. It will flat rip. Not for the faint of heart, but a perfect single track bike. Tons of low end torque right off idle, and almost impossible to stall. Absolutely love the bike.

Only have 3 acres here but it is really nice not to have a neighbor 10 feet away on either side, which we had back in South Dakota.

From what I've seen South Dakota has experienced 85*+ over the last few weeks with some humidity levels around 70% - good for them . . . but come Dec/Jan/Feb when it's below 0 with the wind blowing 30 mph+ I'll be thinking of all my friends and relatives while I'm siting on the deck in my t-shirt and shorts drinking a cold beverage.

I crack the garage door a couple inches and pull down the attic steps.

When I climb the steps and sit at the top there is a big breeze from the hot garage air moving into the attic to expel out the roof vents.

Lowers the garage temp about 15 degrees.

One of the red heads manical Chihuahua's will bite your fingers clean off! Little bastage. 'bout how I feel like this time of the year...lol



This retirement stuff is hard on an old soul...lol
Did you call that vette blessed? Auto correct perhaps? Lol....I have BLASTED 92 vette my wife keeps nagging me to get running and sell. I absolute hate working on the wiring on that thing. Maybe if my hands and arms were about half as meaty it would be easier but even then, there are things that just fit together like a puzzle. They only fit one way, they are absolute snug, no room for wiggle. At least with a puzzle, you don't have to remove 3 other pieces to put another one in. Unfortunately most of the work seems to occur out in the sun.

Our little fur ball would be so excited to see an intruder she would pee all over them!

One saving grace about my shop is that the garage door opens to the west, where most of the wind comes from. Deliberate selection when I built it. Still would love to get some AC in there though, it was registering 96 and 73% humidity inside the other day.

Oppressive heat is exactly why I haven't been in the garage, it is a metal building with insulation and a window unit, but still not able to get below 90!

Typical midwest weather here, time for the 90s and 80-90% humidity. This makes round 2, and just in time this weekend when I need to mow again. Hasn't killed me yet, don't expect that to change anytime soon. Grew up in this weather, and then spent 5 years in south FL where it's even worse. I'm pretty calloused against it.

93. Feels like 105 in Saint Louis. Typical for this time of year. It's in the lower 70s at 6:00 AM and stupid sticky.

I can't work on anything bare metal from June until the end of august in SC, I cover whatever I'm working on with sweat and it rusts

I'm a lot more "used to it" than my wife. As long as I have a lot of water, I can spend the entire day out in it, my clothes will look like I just jumped into a pool with them on. My wife will hide in the A/C all day.
