I'm with SuperV... when the weather man says the heat index is 105 I would agree its getting a little warm.
Sounds liek our weather for past couple years. Parts will get rain with the thunder and lightening storms.We stay in a draught and just get the flash and noise, no rain.We had thunder storms roll thru yesterday afternoon. Heavy rains and high winds within 5 miles of the house. We got thunder and sprinkles for a few minutes.
99.1 °F today, and it ain't even August yet!I'm with SuperV... when the weather man says the heat index is 105 I would agree its getting a little warm.
It was when I worked with my uncle, doing custom haying, that I figured out that water doesn't necessarily work for dehydration for me, that I needed something with electrolytes, if I was out in the heat of the day, which is one of the necessities when haying. I am always looking for shade on a hot and sunny day. I can appreciate what a difference the cover made for your dad on that day.I saw these pics the other day. The afternoon dad and I raked & baled this field the actual temp was 102. I was told the heat index was 112+. I went to town that morning and bought a canopy for the old ford so dad was in the shade all afternoon. It was hot that day. I sweated out water as fast as I drank it.
