    Third day over 100 here.
    Have to do mowing, so trimmed today (string trimmer).
    Started at 6, knocked off at 9.
    Will do the same tomorrow, then drive mow on Saturday.
    I usually do it all in one day, but no way in this heat.

    I will take the cold.
    No matter how cold it is, you can always add another layer of clothes to bear up in it.
    But there is a natural limit to how many clothes you can take off in the heat - -

    Which reminds me of a very old poem -

    It seems as though man is a fool.
    When its hot, he wants it cool.
    When its cool, he wants it hot.
    Always wanting what is not.

    I prefer the seasons with temperatures between 50F and about 78F, no matter the conditions. I'm less fond of snow each time it arrives.

    zane71464, so you are in the Portsmouth area? I have family right across the river in South Shore and a WHOLE lot of my paternal grandmothers family buried in a grave yard just north of Portsmouth just off HWY 23. I almost bought a camp (actally a 3 bedroom house) on route 103 (I think that is the route number that runs along the Sciota River) right across the train tracks. A distant cousin died and I was second on the list to buy it from his widow. Sadly the first one bought it. I have many fond memories of fishing on the Sciota River as a kid, many!

    Heck, small world sometimes jj. Yep, I'm about 20 miles north of Porstmouth, and that's route 104 that runs along side of the Scioto River and State route 23 all the way to Columbus and beyond.
    And yep, lot of good fishing in the Scioto river and ALOT of good arrowhead hunting as well. I try to hit the bottoms along side of the river at least a few times a year (looking for arrowheads). Several years ago even done/helped with some farming in the river bottoms. Have you ever been down along Earl Thomas Conley park? (Riverside park. I think they actually call it.)

    I laid a digital thermometer on the dash of my truck today after lunch for about an hour and it went to 173.1 degrees F.

    My truck is red---not black.

    I do 90 yards a week in Florida all by myself. Hot as hell, gotta beat the rain and lightning everyday. Suks to be an old fart.

    Have not been to the park. We always came up to put out trot lines for cat fiush and then do some hand pole fishing on the Scioya. We would catch well in excess of 100 pouns a weekend. My father and my uncle got a $100 fine each back in the 1977 because they did not have their lines tagged with their names. They had to borrow money off me and my cousin tpo pay it or else to jail. Sad part was we were high school kids who had just made about $200 each housing tobbaco that week!!! LOL Dad never lived that down, it was a good laugh till the day he died. I have a friend who travels 104 way up till he branches off to head to Jackson Ohio region. Like he stated, 23 is faster but 104 is more scenic and a lot slower pace3d sorta like he is. I know great country along the Sciota and LOTS of history.

    Nah, but I'm careful to not leave any chocolate candy in the vehicle. :)

    Seriously, CD holders and such are quickly destroyed in such temps.
