    I've been out in the sun alllll day today, and now I don't feel very well. I can't really explain it, just feel lousy. [​IMG] It was 89 today, felt like 91 with humidity. I think I will take a shower, then start guzzling drinks. [​IMG]

    yes...drink...very important to rehydrate yourself.

    I've done that to myself and gotten sunpoisoning and spewed all over beef a roo in my younger years--went to go watch a boyfriend play a bunch of soccer games and had nothing to drink and sat in the sun for hours. so then i get to the restaurant and guzzle some water. uh...projectile and i DID NOT make it to the bathroom. and I almost hit a kid. ha ha. it was the worst.

    rehydrate and rest...hope you start feeling better.

    DRINK Lots of water.

    I went out at 3 to do chores.. gather eggs.. (got 11 today) and before I got back in I was sweating so bad I could hardly cool down.

    I jumped in the pool and that helped a little. It's still 105 out there and all my chickens have their wings spread and are panting. Can't wait till October.

    Thanks all, I am drinking and drinking here. The shower helped a little. The heat sure gets you when you aren't paying attention to it.

    Maplesky-yuck! What a disaster! LOL [​IMG]

    Mahonri-I've been to AZ one time during the summer, and I'll never do it again. [​IMG] It is just too disgustingly hot there. No offense....hope your chickens stay cool. And you too! I'll hop into my pool if I can ever get it clean. That's part of what I did outside today.

    Preppy-I've never been to Ohio, but you are pretty far north, so I'm assuming your winters are pretty bad. Do you get humidity in the summer? [​IMG]

    I'm in GA, by the way.
