he cut through a wall with the water and electric still turned on and was upset when sparks flew and water sprayed because it didnt "handle" those.... wow! some people need not be given access to tools... oh and even though it got shocked and soaked my sawzall (milwaukee) lives today still... its great wgen you want to turn a skoolie seat into a bench

yeah like the guys that destroyed my first bus!! by dirzzling gas onto the air cleaner lid on their Classic chevelle to get it started.. (this technique allows just a little gas to run down the bolt into the carb) the top came off the gas can gas went everywhere.... they started the car......

So I took a job this week. A buddy of mine is building a 14 stall barn. Brutal heat and the sun is unrelenting. Will be nice to have some bus money again.

Absolutely brutal here in South Texas too.

I keep telling myself "its that DRY heat" and cracking up. People think I'm nuts.

Yesterday was my first day. An hour in the sun and I was overheated and puked my guts out. Was tough, but today was better. Still, this heat is crazy.
I picked a horrible summer to start a constuction job for sure, but I need the money. I've also picked up a couple yards to mow.

Haha.. you may have missed the "C". Redd's talking Celsius. 40c is ~104 Fahrenheit.

I could go for an hour of 40 Fahrenheit right now, though!

This heat has worn me down as well. I had to stay in bed today, with no ac. I will do my best to trust and just take it easy and stay close to bed until i am refreshed again. Good luck to you brother!

I sat in an office all day building webpages....

Got home and worked on pulling gen head, was absolutely drenched with sweat! My t-shirt was easily 4 times heavier!

Was not a good day for being outside around here either.

Haha, i see the Celsius "C" now. I work in an un-airconditioned service department of a Ford dealership in THE VERY south eastern corner of Alabama. Or as i call it, "the butt hole of the south". Real feel should get up to 104 today and the next little bit. It's 99% humidity too so i feel like i'm breathing in water. Stay hydrated everyone!

Its a pretty good size barn. I'm thinking of building something like it with open sides to park the bus in when I'm done.

My bus has had very slow progress as well. Routinely 95* and up temps mixed with 90% and up Louisiana humidity makes it dangerous to work outside on the bus. My shop doesn't have air conditioning. It's a metal building, so frequent temperature during the day is easily above 105*
