    Right? But it's a "DRY" heat! [​IMG] It really is different with 10% humidity, but when it's 118? I'm not a fan of rocks, cactus and 110 deg. The heat is horrible! 80's about right for me too. But, there's mountains. Albuquerque, Prescott, Peyson. The cold gets me. I LOVED Michigan! Loved the people, the lifestyle, I couldn't take another ice storm. Shoveling out my horse trailer. Carrying boiling water, heating water for the critters. How cold does it get and for how long how much snow where you are?

    I wish I could be ok with the cold and the snow again. Living in So Ca with the gangsters and crack heads is awful. I saw the pics of your coops/runs. How hard is it to raise chickens in your zone?

    I would much rather brave the ice then the gangs. It really doesnt matter where you live as much as how much you are willing to put into a coop. so very important to have electric in the coop and close to a water source and it just takes you having warm boots. I fell and broke my hip couple winters ago. slipped off the deck and bounced on the walk. 2 steps. I had a ramp put in so if i fall any more i am not going to land hard. I dread the winters mostly because I am not spending any time out there. every thing else can be worked out with careful planning and money to do it right.

    if you truly want to kill a tree you can buy copper nails at a hardware store and pound then into the tree it should kill it pound the nails in a circle around the tree.
