WHAT HAPPENED TO SPRING

As this posts, I'll be heading to the farm...
 

2nd Man wisely chose the air conditioning of the apartment (plus he has work to do).  My goal is to mow (not really a goal so much as a necessity) and then I'd really like to get the peach tree in the raised bed and in the midst of all that, we have someone coming by.

But we're under this:


Our whole area is under a heat advisory, the first of the season and one of the earliest we've had.  It's the dreaded combo we know all too well in these parts, "high temperature and high humidity". 

It creates that feels like of 157 degrees.  OK, so maybe not exactly that hot but it's usually pretty steamy.  I'll stay well hydrated and do what I need to do and get back to the a/c as soon as possible.

  1. It's overcast here and having a very ( I do me very) light mist but no sun and it's 73 deg. at the moment. Maybe we will see some sun later on in the day.
    Stay cool and stay safe. Home you get things accomplished that you want to do; just don't over do.
    Enjoy your day and have a relaxing and wonderful evening

    1. Thank you, I did as much as I could but that was it. Just enough to get worn out but not to be sore, ha.

  4. 90’s are in the forecast for at least the next 10 days – ugh! With the high humidity, you feel like you need a machete to cut through the jungle of this heavy, hot air.
    We sure had a short Spring. I have lived here in SE Texas my entire life and we have never had a heat advisory for early May.
    Take care outside at the Farm today! Stay cool – but you’re always Cool anyway!

    1. Yep, I don't think those elsewhere understand how early this is for us and our heavy humidity is just so oppressively hot. Sigh. Going to stay cool, in both ways HA!!

  6. I'm in S. CO and we topped out at 90° today and now, coming onto 5 p.m., it is starting to cool down a bit! We are in the 80s for the next 4 days!

    1. I'm not 100% opposed to heat but yeah as long as we have a/c and such it's not so bad. We just run from a/c house to a/c car to a/c store back to a/c car, LOL. Stay cool!!
