    your rooster is panting too hard to crow, and one of your hens dies in the coop (after laying her egg, bless her). [​IMG] And today is only the beginning, check out this forecast http://www.wral.com/weather/ [​IMG]

    When you go outside in bare feet and the DIRT is burning your feet!! (That actually happened today. usually it's just the sidewalk, but... I probably could've fried an egg on the sidewalk! Gotta try that sometime.)

    As soon as you step outside, you are covered in sweat.

    When you wake up in the morning and all your windows are covered in condensation you can't see through. eta I'm sorry about your poor hen.

    Me too. Home Depot was out of AC units so I got a $20 fan instead. [​IMG]

    I think we in Michigan are spoiled with mild summers. I can't deal with anything above 85 degrees! I want that cold summer when we never got above 75 back!

    although I have to say
    some of the species out there are thriving
    must be lack of competition or something
    it is like man vs. wild getting out to the shed
