At 12:55 pm, it is 97 degrees on my shaded porch and I am through carpenting for today. It's too damned hot out there. I went to the lumber yard and got the lumber for the roof joists and a 2X12 that will become my ridge board. The roof should be sufficiently strong. I got one joist nailed to the header before I had to come inside. I'll go outside later and unload the pickup. Those 2X6 boards cost too much to leave them outside in the weather before they are nailed down.

I'm done for the day. Unless it cools considerably. It is not worth heat exhaustion to continue, so I intend to siesta.

Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.
