I remember as a kid growing up in Tomahawk with the summer heat and humidity. When the heat came on for those weeks or three it was unbearable. Even as kids who didn't know any better we were drawn to the lake down where the old boathouses were at the entrance to Bradley Park as well as the waters around the Bradley Park camping area. Swimming, fishing, anything to get away from the darn heat. And then two weeks later it would pass and it would be 'normally warm', some rain, a little wind, and clouds, and maybe a little chilly. Steady good weather never seemed to be the norm. But I loved it all...
Now I'm reading about the killer heat waves in the Midwest, including Wisconsin. It was the humidity that really killed me.
You're all in my thoughts during this heat cycle and I hope you're staying as cool as you can be. I pity the folks that have to be out in that heat really working...that can be downright dangerous.
Please take care of yourselves, keep hydrated as much as possible (beer is ok if taken moderately), keep in the shade, and keep your activity to a minimum.
I would be interested in how folks are doing during this heat period? I think some of the old timer contributors must be holing up somewhere. Catfish must be at the bottom floating to minimize movement and energy.
I worry when the heat gets this bad !!!
