    Problem: ITS HOOOTTTT out! 2-hours out building and I started to get dizzy from the heat, I worked outside all summer but this is killing me! Thanks Texas! I thought it was supposed to cool down in Sept?! [​IMG]

    First Day of fall is the 22nd, you're 2 weeks early. That's the problem! Work early in the morning, drink lots of water & whoever "They" are make em help. Then you can at least slap em up along side the head once & a while.[​IMG]

    Cool down in Sept.? Where? We're having 100+ temps this weekend. Hateful stuff it is! Good luck on your coop! My husband gets a crazed look in his eye if I even mention coop building! [​IMG]

    Dream away! Didn't mean to rain on your parade but if you go by what the stores are doing you'll be wearing galoshes, mittens & a parka tomorrow. I saw Christmas decorations in Costco the other day. Get somebody else to hold the nail when you start them and you may bleed a little less.[​IMG] Good luck with your build!

    When I lived in Texas, I considered 'fall' to run between Oct 1st and Christmas... Here's hoping you get some good building weather!
