Ha, ya. I'm building a two story barn out back that becomes a sweet box when you three walls sheathed. I cut out for the two side windows and door, left the front wall unsheathed for some relief. That worked for a couple days until we got to rafters and sheathing the roof the last two days. Start at daylight do done by 1300. All a guy can take:headbang::headbang:

We've been working in anywhere from 90-100 with head indexes in the 100-110 range. For us Minnesotans that's hot. Especially trying to do concrete and block work. Today we spent the day swinging a sledge hammer at a brick wall to lay a new one tomorrow. Put it this way, by our 9:30 am break I can wring my shirt out.

Forecast here tomorrow is only a high of 91 and mostly cloudy, but a realfeel of 113! You could say we have a little humidity here...I keep the air conditioner on about 69-70 (cooler than I like, really, to keep down the humidity) and don't think I've ever seen the humidity in the house drop below 65%. I recall years ago meeting a man from a poor Caribbean island that had little to no air conditioning and he said he had never felt heat until he came here!

Yup been 90+ with heat index over 100 for about a week and been working 16-18hrs a day and averaging 6 days a week since beginning of July minus my 5 day trip to florida. Not complaining tho, money is good and fishing sucks this time of the year, another two weeks and hopefully I'll be hitting the water hard then the woods cone Sept 10th.

Interesting topic..yes it's been hot and dry in northeast Missouri this summer and I believe it has affected the bowfishing season as well. Seems all our hotspots are during the day instead of the nights, which doesn't seem to make sense. The only thing I can figure is during the day the fish are feeding but after a hot day, they are seeking cooler water at night and are going deeper. Anyone else find it's affected their areas?

Thanks garp. Really appreciate that you realize what lineman go through. Yeah that was some storm Monday night. We had cars pushed 10ft from the wind buy surprisingly didn't do as much damage as you would expect with that kind of wind. Had 40,000 people out at one point and now we are down to the last 2 or 3 single no light calls.
