Its going to be close to 100 here in South Jersey today .. Just wondering .. how hot is too hot for you guys to mow ?

I don't mind 95 when sitting on a rider .. but pushing a mower around the yard ?? Even 85 is too hot for this guy .. :eek:

Early am is a must for that kinda work .. so what if the neighbors get woken up at 7am on Sunday :D

I don't mind the heat much myself but I've read that it's better for the grass to do it in the evening after the heat.

Its been in the mid to high 90's so far this week, and I have been working out side very early to beat the heat.

I have mowed in 100 degree heat, but that is too hot! I prefer the 80s myself. Though it all depends on the humidity.

I got up real early this morning around 8 and finished weed eating and it was 93 and it just drained me. I guess 85 is the most comfortable in the summer but the only time its that cool is when it rains. SO i guess I will suck it up and deal with it.

Yep... in Florida, they get what they call "double century" days... 100*F and 100% humidity. When the temperature is above your body temperature and your sweat won't evaporate, your body has no way to cool itself.

Very dangerous conditions to be out working in. You still see people out jogging in that weather, despite warnings all over the radio and TV.

Here lately I perspire pretty heavily in the heat, partially due to some medication and partially due to being just a bit overweight. I'm not hot, but I do sweat! If I had my choice, being outside or being inside in the a/c and outside, I'd rather stay outside. It feels good to come in, but makes it worse going back out in the heat.
