I'm not going to my local lake with my boat today, as it's just too damned hot, and one can't swim in the lake.

Maybe it's a sign of age, but I simply cannot take the heat when it gets in the high 90's

I'm reminded of a day on Raritan Bay years back. High temp. No wind. This guy jumps off his daysailer to get wet and cool down. Then he discovers he can't get back in his boat.

I enjoy sailing, but I can't enjoy anything when it's this hot.

High 90's in NJ? :eek: Oh, no. That's where I'm headed tomorrow. Some summers here in Portland we never reach 90. I'm with you, I just can't tolerate those temperatures.

Surely, you are not in Sitka.

I moved from TX to NH to get away from the heat. Cannot even take the 70s if humidity is too high. Give me sweatshirt weather anytime! - 40-65 F is about perfect. Of course we are hitting the 90s currently. Who ever said summers were the best time of the year?

Hot and humid here. Lovin' it. Two and three showers a day. I smell like dryer sheets.

Nope. Back at work.

Here in Maryland this is the kind of day to head down cellar to sort drill bits.

The lake is waiting for me. I've got a fresh coat of paint sloppily applied to The Ensign's Gig, waiting to get dinged up.

But I've got a little bit of hay to bale first.

So, you got cows, or is this a poetic term for an intimate moment?

I started a thread on the subject of being older and less heat tolerant a month or so ago. It's always good to know that you're not the only one to be so affected.

One of the things you might like to try that I've recently discovered seems to work is fresh Mango.

Thanx for the tip

Neither. I've got a garden that can always use mulch, whether the sheep eat it first or not.

I'm at my buddy's house in Raleigh. It's hot here too so we called a hooker. After that we'll probably go swimming in his pool.

So, the hooker came with a pool?

Some weather, by the time you get dressed after a shower, you need another shower.

Don't like heat either. Scalding hot shower just before sleep really helps.

After a few weeks of heat, we'll get used to it.

Some medications increase one's sensivity to heat, too. So, it's a good idea to read that info sheet that comes with prescriptions - you know, the one that nobody ever bothers to read.:o

Weather in Halifax and New York has been perfect for several days now...friends flew down to see the Yankees, and we've been looking for them on the tv.

BTW, Happy 4th of July to everyone in the U.S.A.!!!
