    This heat sucks

    Is anyone else going insane with the hot temps here in the east coast and dry as concrete dirt? I never though I would say this but we need a good solid week of rain. I am having problems getting repeating signals most of the time and the ground is like digging through rock. My plugs explode too I feel like we are in the Dustbowl grrr.

    The whole country needs it to rain for about 2 months straight to replace the ground water that has been lost to this drought we are in.
    But heat, bleh was 96 here in my part of Michigan yesterday, 94 today, good news is Fridays high is going to be 58 yay for the cold.
    Stupid haarp project broke everything.

    Yep we've been having intense heat the last week or two.I just got a new metal detector and its been really hard to figure out how to pinpoint since there are no clods so to speak. Hoping for rain for those who need it soon.

    Here in North Central Florida summer is usually hot, humid and buggy. This year is the worst of the 4 summers I've experienced here so far and the long time locals and native-born Floridians all agree with me.

    Most of June, July and August it rained EVERY DANG DAY for at least a few minutes. Sometimes we got several inches in an hour! When it wasn't raining, it was hot! 90-100+ degrees. I won't whine about the heat, I knew what I was getting into when I moved to Florida. With the heat, humidity and rain it makes for some vicious mosquitoes. I'm talking the type that LOVE 30% Deet. I can stand the heat, humidity and rain (though not lightning-I run for the indoors when that starts up). The bugs biting me I can't take. I've tried all kinds of stuff, and some of it works for a little bit, but mostly I've been chased indoors by the bugs.

    So yes, I'm ready for it to be cooler so I can metal detect. I've been clearing my land of underbrush so I can do a proper search, and because I want to be able to use and enjoy the property, not just harbor a fire danger.

    Seems like this is everywhere. I hope it all ends soon. Although I still detect in Winter, it is a lot harder to dig and sometimes to even pin point. Hopefully after this heat it won't be one week of fall weather then boom winter. I can't imagine how the guys in Arizona, Tex, ect do this.

    I'm glad their forcasts are almost always 10 Degrees Lower then reality
    lately


    Hasn't started raining yet
    still a dust bowl here

    naturally hard digging but

    the woodstocker's got it right by me

    No Rain, No Rain, No Rain, No Rain,

    Yep....it's been hot & muggy. Just one of those years. That's the nice thing about living near water.....you can always go detecting in the water. Lately I've been going and enduring a real pounding but at least it's a comfortable way to get outside even when it's really cooking out there.

    Hot and muggy makes the badger even more cranky. I scoped out a sweet place, a creek that went through an area known for having union soldiers camping. My daughter and I go there luckily I wore my knee high boots because although the water looked so appealing what was underneath was a big mans enemy--silt of iron and clay. That crap swallowed me up to the knees and it took my daughter yanking me out like a stuck car. Everything else here is just dust so its making it hard to do much.

    many of the schools are cancelling football and other sport practice.
    that is rare the schools care about the kids around here.
    it's all about brownie points for the coach and school after a win.

    I guess they made their quota
    on kids dropping dead, due to sports around here

    Hit 96 up here in Cow Hampshire. Last week we had a couple of nights in the 30's...crazy weather, but not unexpected in New England. Who was it that said, "if you don't like the weather, wait a minute, it will change". Supposed to get rain either Thursday or Friday. Want those cool nights back ASAP.
