    Northern Illinois is on about the 4th day of it...forecast to break tomorrow (low 80's) and headed up to WI to shoot. 30-40% chance of rain however. The positions are covered however. Targets might not get changed as much!

    As with the others that live here in Fl....if it is after 1100 in the summer before I can get to the range..might as well forget it. Heat big problem, sun-have history of skin cancer, + bugs, rain, lighting....sometimes hail...have to pass. Enough medical problems without having the possibility of heat stroke.

    Way too hot here to shoot, so I spent about 4 hours at a gun show. Didn't buy much, but it was nice & cool anyway.

    Cold front moving in from Canada, some storms, but the temp has dropped over 20 degrees. Better weather up here next week.

    I'll probably go shooting Friday. My range is in the shade, up against the mountain, and the cool breezes continue to come down the valley, regardless. Even if the temperature in the valley is high, up there in the shade, it's generally pretty nice.

    I'll take a cooler with a bunch of Dr.Pepper and a few hot dogs, the little gas grill, and my straw hat. May spend the entire day if Mrs. Flash doesn't push the "Honey-Do List" too badly.

    Sorry you others don't have access to a paradise like we have here in Pure Appaachia.

    Such is life my friend. Down here we have central air, so the daily highs and lows aren't that big of a deal until you have to work outside. The low last night was 80. The high today will be in the mid 90s, unless the clouds completely disappear. I went shooting last weekend (highs in the high 90s) so this weekend I'll be sitting in front of a fan, reloading to restock the ammo I shot at the range. Just another summer day in Texas.

    I use to hate hot weather because I hated being soaked in sweat. 9 years ago a woman driving a Ford Ranger changed all that. If it is cold or the A/C is too high, my arms, wrist, and knees ache from mild to, "THERE ISN'T ENOUGH TYLENOL IN THE WORLD!". It's near 90 now and I'm headed to the range. Hot days are one of the few times I don't hurt.

    I got back from Vietnam in 72 and was in nice and comfy in Imperial Beach, Ca till 76 when I got stationed in Kingsville,TX. HOT and humid never appealed to me then or now, but here I am in Gainesville, Fl. Medical problems for wife and I + great hospital and doctors will make you live in the places you never imagined.

    I try to shoot my handguns 2 or 3 times per week regardless of the weather but I "cheat". I go out the door of my air conditioned kitchen where I have a chair just inside the open garage door. I sit there and shoot a few hundred rounds at the targets against the bank beyond the garage door. When I get hot, tired or bored, I wander back into the house to cool off and get something to drink. When I shoot my rifles, I go out of the downstairs den door and shoot at targets on a different bank or ride the John Deere down to the field in the lower part of the yard where I have more targets at a greater distance.
