I'd like to install some kind of inferred laser sighting on my shop fan so when I'm walking around it stays on me the whole time. Can't take high heat & humidity but would rather work in that then in frigid temperatures. I'm spoiled @ work, all day everyday I got heating & air in my crane cab, always comfortable. 😆

Nope, not a drop, but it came so close that radar showed it was over me. Teresa's Dad, about 10 miles north got a decent rain though.  I'm not holding onto much hope of getting rain out of this system the way things have been going.  They still say we could get over an inch tonight & tomorrow, but I'll have to see & feel rain to believe it.

Sorry to hear that, Daniel. We got about half an inch, in an hour. Of course, it's so dry most of it ran off....

 

Hope you get a good soaking!

Yesterday afternoon, just as I left to start afternoon chores, I discovered my home's AC was shut down, with heat index of 101F!!!

 No thrown breaker, and at the outside unit, the magnetic relay was humming.  Had Teresa shut it down, then I pushed the relay manually.....she came on!   :dancingbanana:   Just a dirty contact, so all has been well since.  Man did that throw me a loop for a few minutes! 

  Today brought a sip of rain, maybe 1/10", but it's a drink for the crops.  More expected, and I pray we get it!

We not only have been getting a regular wetting but the dew is heavy every night. So that also helps.

I don't know about every one else but I would much rather spend a bit of time in the fall and winter cutting fire wood to heat the hose and work shop to work in than having to use heavy doses of bag balm to keep the creeping red ash, rash at bay in the summer.

 

We don't not only have AC in the house but the window set up doesn't allow a window unit either. I looked into the portable units that you have a hose you vent thru some thing to the out side but Kare said NO WAY am I putting a sheet of ply wood or plastic in place of the screens and have that unit sitting on the floor.

 

the Ac in my truck blew out in May. Afraid to take it in as the last time I had to buy a compresser and related stuff to the tune of $1200.00

Firewood warms you a few times through out the year.

 

I cut all mine last year in the summer, then split it in the fall.  I have such a large amount that I won't really need to cut any till next year, which probably will be the year after if I'm not home this winter It'll sit.

Sorry to hear no rain Daniel, wish I could've sent you some south last night. I had almost an inch from overnight in the feed bucket I left outside. Woke up this morning with a flooded laundry room in the basement, must have filled up window well and came through window.

It had rained a little more after Teresa told me 1/10" of rain, then it came another good shower.  2/10" in the gauge now.  I drove to all the corn fields, and all the corn looks refreshed!  :thumbs:   Still need much more, but it's a good start!  We're about 4" below normal rain here.
