Life on the tundra has its ups and downs. What some folks don’t think about is that while it gets cold enough in the winter that you can freeze your butt to the car seat, in the summer, like this week for instance, the heat index can get up to 110 degrees! That is a situation that causes us Northerners to melt like the Wicked Witch of the West.
Adding to my personal dilemma is that fact that I don’t have air conditioning in my house. But — and this makes perfect sense to me — I do have AC in my woodshop.
So this week — for health reasons — I will need to be spending a lot of time in my workshop. It simply can’t be avoided. There may be other important things on my docket, but 110 degrees is dangerous! A guy has got to take care of himself.
Yup, he sure does!
