    ...with a heat index of 107. I've got seven tractors to move and nine waterers to refill plus the show bird hutch and several brooders needing their water refilled and some fresh bedding.

    It's topped out between 98 to 102 degrees every day for more than ten days now. Even for Florida this is getting old...

    At least we're not choking on smoke today, but that may not last if the wind shifts again.

    I wait until the very last second before dark to go out and do the evening chicken chores. Still come in dripping wet with sweat. [​IMG]
