    Not raining at the moment but the relative humidity where I live is 97%. That wood has got to be soaking up a bunch of moisture.

    One of those days where you can actually see the air.

    As the weatherman said on the news this morning, "it's the air you wear."

    I have had it. I quit. Too hot to do work in the sun. Unfortunately all the current work is now on the sunny side of the home, I am working on. I should have stayed in Block Island.. Also replacing trim on an extention ladder, with hornets buzzing around is nothing to get excited about.

    Went to brush dump on Saturday..had not been there in 3 or 4 weeks...found about 72 hours worth of maple 4-6 inch diameter cut to 16". Thank you goddess of the woods! Then found 8 rounds of sugar maple 36" diameter they were anywhere from 28 to 36 inches in length..Went home got the saw, the splitting maul, wedges, pulp hook and cantook. Got through 6 and was spent basically spilit into thirds....had to carry the pieces about 75 ft to throw in the truck. Went back sunday to get the other two. On Sunday the pooch jumped out of the truck and went right under it until i finished. The pool never felt so good. We were at 93 and 90 plus humidity.
