i am in south Kentucky and the past weekend and coming week are all days will be above 90 degrees. it's very unusual for this time of the year. i 'm staying indoors and come out at 6pm to cut the grass and work in the garden. How is anyone else coping with this?
HA! Bunch of sissies you guys are! Try being outside today here in southeast Georgia! Triple digits in some spots! But wait till summer when it starts to get really hot!
We are in a bad drought here and the Okefenokee swamp peat has already been burning for a few weeks. Here in the country we are serenaded by the sound of many irrigation motors running all night long. The produce and tobacco farmers are pumping millions of gallons of water out of the ground trying to keep their crops alive and hoping it might rain before long.
So, you guys aren't getting the worst of it after all!
yeah Georgia,with all that concrete around the ever-expanding Atlanta must be driving the heat way up!
Kentucky isn't considered a southern state,and so the excessive heat is not the usual. I moved from Florida to escape the heat and storms..ha!
We've had a major year of excessive rains and storms and then suddenly the heat switch is turned on. We are experiencing a heat index of 112 so cutting the grass is very tough as is any outdoor activities.
This is going to be a year of EXCESSIVES I've afraid.
