People in warm climates are lazy-cant blame them-too hot to do anything.bur lay around.
People in colder climates are go getters-gotta keep moving.An example is firewood-it heats you twice-once when cutting and splitting and again when burning.
Shovelling snow all winter keeps you in good shape too.And keeps you warm.
i cant stand heat of any kind anymore.The older I get the better I enjoy the cold.

Iíve noticed what Mike mentioned, if June is HOT then generally July and August arenít as bad. Or either by the time it rolls around youíre already used to it and donít pay attention to it.

Coming back from the grocery store the pickup said it's 98 here.

Ugh.

Funny I was the exact opposite. As a kid and young adult I LOVED the winter and the snow. But by the time I was 30 or so I hated it.

98 degrees is body temp, so if it's not at least 98 degrees out, it's not even hot.

I love the heat.

It is amazing how much work goes into preparing for winter. In the old days, you did it or you died. Cutting firewood was always one of my favorite chores. I really, genuinely enjoy it. But I don't think any climate has a monopoly on lazy people. Recently, we had a family of Guatemalan's putting a roof on a house we bought. I guess nobody ever told them they're lazy. The mother, the father, teenage daughter and son, and a little boy and girl keeping the yard clean. Hotter than heck, but watching them work was a thing of beauty. There's plenty of hard working people down South and plenty of lazies up North.

No thanks on the shoveling though. I wonder how many hours of my life I've spent shoveling snow. Riding my bike all winter provides the same heath benefits and I have to say, I do enjoy it much more. It's good you enjoy winter. Your fur is much better, that's for sure!

Heat and lack of rain will kill native grasses and trees. Hundreds of live oak trees don't have any leaves on them across my property. Wild persimmon trees have died, algerita bushes didn't bloom, and even prickly pear didn't bloom and some are actually dead.

It has been above 100 degrees for a number of days with some up around 110. Those temps with a south breeze feels like a blow torch when I am out in it. I have had trouble keeping my blood pressure up because of losing so much salt as I perspire heavy when out in it.

This picture was taken a couple of days ago.

Not so much the heat here as it is the humidity, today the humidity took a break and it's pleasant outside. Had a huge thunderstorm roll through late one afternoon last week so lawn is still green, mowed it earlier. Humidity and crap heat begin again next week though. June has always felt hotter to me than July or Aug. but like was said, maybe by then im just use to it?

The harder you work the hotter you get. Itís obvious who the ones are that donít work hard.

I always worked hard enough down South that the dingleberries washed out of the gully. Lol

I've lived in Nebraska and I've lived in Florida. I'm going to try Arkansas.
I'll definitely take cold over hot. It's bad when you peel your wet clothes off like a rabbit skin.

Not as long as the Dems run things!

Don't matter how cold/hot it is, they are welcomed and taken care of. eek


swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

You have to remember that 1 out of 3 Democratic Voters is just as dumb as the other two.

I heated my home solely with firewood for years... And I did it with hardwood, not wimpy northern conifers that fall apart in a stiff breeze.

I've worked in everything from -50įF to 150įF. It all sucks in one way or another.

Summer time trapping is getting up at 0600 to check the line and putting in sets before it reaches 90 by 1000. Only issue is the humidity is way up there that early so you still puddle around the set so Iím not sure of the pay off, lol. Gnats are bad early and in the shade, but it is a tad bit cooler. Gnats arenít bad in the sun and heat, but then your working in the direct sun. Pick your poison. I can tell you if I wasnít getting paid then my fat butt would be inside and Iíd reemerge in September when hunting season starts. Iíd hibernate all summer and come out when it cools off!
