Thought I would try a new thread.
Today we hit 88* and a heat index of 99* Green Bay - Fox Valley area of Wisconsin
Just 150 miles to the southwest of me Praire-Du-Chien, WI. the temp Hit 98* and they had a heat index of 108*.
That is very uncomfortable.

I'm not sure what the high was, but I was waiting for it to cool down before going to my mom's place to mow. I gave up waiting, and went at 6:30, when it had "cooled down" to 92 degrees!!

I was just plain HOT here in Winthrop, MN. I think the heat index reached somewhere around 105. Just dead, sticky air. My Dad even called me asking if it was too hot to run his mower. I told him it was too hot for him to run the mower for sure.

Now I don't feel so bad at 6:30 we where down to 89*.
Did some welding on the mower height adjuster and said Screw This.
Got in the truck and took a ride to Lil Bros and drank some of his beer in a cool shop.:blush2:

It was over 90 here with much humidity. It is breeding season for my sheep and my old ram was running around like a mad ram. The young rams make him crazy trying to keep up. Yesterday was a particularly trying day for him. He was running back and forth, back and forth. His tongue was hanging out, and he was breathing hard. I had a water bucket I was taking over to the llamas and the Ram ran over to me, so I gave him the water. He drank and drank, then he just fell down. I thought he was finished. He was still breathing so I just left him while I finished chores. Pretty soon he was up and chasing the girls again. I asked him what he was doing, and I am sure he said he just couldn't help himself. I rememeber those days.

99 to 100 here, with heat index around 110+. I got most my chores finished by noon yesterday & gonna do the same today, except I had to feed late afternoon, and today I milk tonight. The cows look like wet noodles. Sprinklers & fans help, but they look like they're gonna melt.

I don't have any numbers to put to it, but it was MISERABLE here yesterday! Even worse in the mill! Not great today either, but better than yesterday.

It's been a hot and muggy summer here also in upstate NY. To hot to work in the garage during the day and at night the mosquitoes will eat you alive. I can't wait til fall so I can put some real time in on my projects without looking like a glazed donut. Next year I'm going to put a ceiling in the garage and install a window air conditioner.

Hot and miserable again here. Didn't take long to feel "droopy" if you had to be working in the direct sun for very long. I don't know which was worse... being in the sun, or retreating to the shade where the mosquitoes would eat you alive. Bug dope didn't do much good cause the sweat was just washing it off.

2 1/2hrs milking tonight. Even with 3 fans, the temp in the parlor, due to the cow's body heat was 100F. Figuring the humidity at least at 70%, then I had a heat index of around 138! I knew I was hot! The 2 milk cooler compressor pumps kept kicking off due to too high a pressure until I set a spray hose on wide fan to spray onto the condensers. Finally got the milk temps dropping. Now for a good cool shower for myself in a few minutes.
Dang does winter sound good right about now. Thing is, if we have as severe a winter as this summer, we're in for one horrendous big chill!
