    There's a petition going around here in the state to get a repeal of DST on the ballot this fall.

    I like daylight savings time, up here it means it's still light out at 10 p.m. in June & July.

    every time I went to Phoenix it was square: degrees = relative humidity. 107 degrees, 107 percent.

    We had a cripple hide under an old broken down farm truck, we tried to get him out for 20 minutes with no avail so I crawled as far as I could under it with my little NAA mini revolver in .22lr and popped it

    9 birds 9 shells for me, batting 1000.

    1 chucker, 1 pheasant, 6 quail, and 1 accidental tweety bird. If I wasnt invited I would have never done it and I'll probably never do it again. It's like taking something natural and primal and turning it into a game.

    Yeah, when I went to Arizona, it was pretty dry. My mom went there as a kid, I think during summer. She said that the wind felt like sandpaper when she rode her bike.

    Out here in NE TX/SE OK, hot days can make it feel like you're gonna drown in the air. Honestly, I'd prefer the dry air of Arizona or West Texas.

    When we moved to Colorado, it never occurred to anyone to tell me that none of the humidity made it to that state. Not even a beer bottle sweats. After 2 mornings of waking with my tongue glued to the roof of my mouth, I bought a humidifier. We used to watch rain storms that the rain never made it to the ground. Called virga.

    I lived in Tucson and Flagstaff, never had a/c. Not even in my vehicles.
    In Tucson I did have a swamp cooler. It wasn't worth a darn if the humidity was over 15-20% but it was ok most of the time.

    Don't forget your safety gear. Bones don't mend so quickly anymore.

    I live in Lake Havasu City AZ and it is raining. We will be looking at off and on rain for possibly the next couple of weeks. Very unusual. Weeds will be growing like mad and the desert will be green. The severe rain went north of us as usual. At least it washed the solar panels. Summer here will be in the 120f range with humidity in the single digits.
    You do not want to ride an ATV or off road vehicle in mud around here. I got caught once in the Jeep and it took several hours with a pressure washer to get the dried mud off. You could build houses out of that stuff. I think the indigenous peoples did hundreds of years ago.

    I friend just phoned and asked me if I was going to ride my new ride today.

    I said:
    "Hell, no! it rained last night and I don't want to get it muddy! I'll probably put a coat of wax on it!" :)

    I went mudding once. It was great fun but I'll never do it again. It took 4 hours to get all of it out from the bottom of my K5 Blazer. And I clogged up the storm drain, so I had to clear that too.

    Chainsaws with 25-36 inch bars are cool until you have to use them for a couple hours imo
