Bless you southern folks, lived there couldn't stand it. Here's my 2 cents on the south... Great manners / respect for those that earn it, food is the best beats our cooking hands down (at least for me my kids would disagree), not impressed with any of the land animals but the fishing is great, but I can't handle the heat!! Had to get out the kitchen.. Trying to convince the wife to move to Alaska as we speak. Personally I hate the summer could handle winter year round

In the 90s and humid here today. Spent a couple hours on the tractor running the finishing mower, finished paining the Jon boat, and went through three sets of clothes from being soaked with sweat. Will be this way until early October. I hate summer. Itís even too hot to fish!

103 and 36% humidity here today. I know 36% is nothing but if youíre used to 10% it sucks. I donít know how you guys do 50+

It's the dew point that counts. When it's over 90 degrees and the dew point is over 70, you know you're in the south. You sweat, it doesn't evaporate, it just feels sticky.

As a Kansan, I just feel fortunate that it didn't snow today! (Although it would've felt nice)

Ever notice how slow folks from the South move? Its steady movement, just slow. That is how one deals with the heat.
I spent some time in Arkansas. The folks there would come into the bar at night to tip back a few after being out in the heat all day. What I found interesting was the constant wiping of the arms from shoulder down to the hands. I asked my buddy who was from there what was that all about. He said that it was just the continuation of what those guys need to do all day out in the miserable environment which is much of Arkansas. The wiping is how they keep from dying from blood loss from mosquitoes. Just a habit, he said.

Cornstarch for sure or you'll end up with batwings.

At least with the cold you can always put more clothes on and work harder to stay comfortable. Above 90 degrees you run out of clothes to take off.

90 degrees with 96% humidity make me feel alive as much as -25 dergees with 15mph winds...

I can stand alot of heat and humidity, I just can't figure out how you guys trap around them "freakin snakes " down there. No way, not for me


Big Wet Drops and Lots of them are a Sure Sign of Rain!

This got me thinking, we learn from a real early age how to watch for snakes and to avoid places theyíre likely to hide. My son turns 6 this weekend and weíve been teaching him this over the summer. Never really thought about it being a learned behavior.

Something else thatís weird down here is the ticks. I spent 12 weeks in Virginia last spring, and the folks warned everyone about ticks. If you got one on you they suggested that you go to the medical staff to get on antibiotics! The folks from areas that donít have them were scared to death! I was like, guys, I literally pull a tick a week off me in the summertime, itís not a big deal. Of course I missed one a few years ago and got a case of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever as a result, but it all worked out after some meds.
