Two weeks ago I was working at 2 in the morning and it was 80f I was shivering . That is not a joke . My house temp is 84 and I do not use the a/c in my truck . I like dig heat and heat digs me digging on the heat DIG .

before my heart problem developed heat never bothered me. it was nothing to finish work at 3:30 and head out to the hay field and work till dusk even in mid august!
now i cannot tolerate the heat for more than 15 minutes and must carry water with me at all times.


getting old does not bother me but it sucks that i cant do many of the things i did before.

Hit 105 here today. That's about as hot as it ever gets. Humidity is very low though, so quite tolerable especially with this smoke reducing the sun.

Around here (northern Nevada), it can get 115 or so but the humidity is usually in the single digits when it's really hot.

The hottest I've ever worked in was a power plant control house about 30 miles from Vegas. Several days were 122. Some days I'd drive by a sign that read temperature and it'd be 95 or 97 and the sun wasn't even up yet. You knew you were in for a long day..........

Today it is 36F (2C) and the mountains behind me have gotten a lot whiter over the weekend... Maybe that will help with the forest fires in the area...

It's supposed to warm up again this week. I took advantage of the nice weekend with a six mile raft trip down the Delaware with my daughter.

The sweat doesn't evaporate when the humidity is in the 90%.

Is that supposed to be a shot at me?

Because I don’t know a country singer?

I take it as a compliment, thanks.


I’m a drummer. I like technical music that involves talented musicians. I don’t know any country musicians. Country music is all about vocals. Now I appreciate the talent it takes to write a song that hits you in the feels, but it’s not my thing and that’s what country music is all about. Maybe a little bit of good guitar playing, but mostly it’s lyrics and story telling and it is not known for instrumental talent.

Got me curious, we lost a lot of snow over the last week so I just measured the snow banks at the end of my driveway are down to 8' high. Its 34F and more melting today! Snow in the yard has dropped quite a bit too. I can see
a little grass next to my truck.

It's been cool here the past few days. Lows in the 50's and highs in the 70's. I'd take this all year long if I could bottle it.

We had 2 or 3 cold snaps where it got down into the 40's for a couple nights. Otherwise 80's for the highs.

Spring break will be winding down, the freeloader spring training mobs will be evacuating for the northern latitudes soon, and we'll get our roads, restaurants, hospitals and normal sense of life restored within a week or two.

LMAO! Just messing with you bro!

You can think about song writing an all the musical stuff and vocals you want, but to me she's just hot as hell with a great set on her.

When it comes to females I'm a very simple guy.

Not known for instrumental talent...you need to check out some older country guitarists brother. Chet Atkins, Roy Clark, Glen Campbell, Jerry Reid, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Mark Knopfler, BB King, Brad Paisley, just to name a few...

As for weather here, I was in shorts just a week or so ago and now I'm back wearing a jacket again.

And this freaking constant daily rain makes me feel like I'm visiting relatives in Scotland or the UK.

Oh I know, your always just messing with me. Lol

Many of those guys you mentioned are blues guitarists. Love Stevie Ray. And I have heard of most of those country guitarists as well.

Most of the music I listen to is rich with the rhythm section, drum and bass.

Now try to find a single country drummer that stands out! That is the main reason I never got into country, too busy studying drummers.

SRV, BB, and Mark are country if you look into it.

I've never paid much attention to drummers.
