How's everyone finding this heat?

 

I rarely do landscaping, mainly fencing, but it seems if ever I have to manually dig the earth out of the ground in 10's of tons it's 30+ degrees. Which is my current endeavour BTW

It is torture! Literally!

Well I've never been tortured but it can't be any worse than pulling your balls out in this weather can it?

I dunno if it's worse than pouring incessant rain. I've had to get soaked anyway with the sprinkler system on to soften the bone dry and solid earth anyway. 

 

Going home at the end of the day just absolutely shattered and slightly burnt is getting tedious.

Got heatstroke the other week. Wouldnt reccomend it. 

Me too. Ten hours In direct sunlight, I was sick, had a screaming headache and got the shakes. Not pleasant.

Not working in it, delayed all major works. 

 

Though the bank bank account is suffering, may have to brave by the end of next week.
