Heat and Humidity

Weekends are my time to get work done on projects around the home and on my bicycles. My workshop is a 1940s-era cinder block garage with no heat, no a/c, and no running water. It does have electricity and, in the winter, a small space heater.

That doesn't mean I stop working in adverse conditions. Our temperature here today was nearly 100, with oppressive humidity. I worked all afternoon on projects, taking breaks and drinking lots of water.

I finished off with a ride on the 1954 Schwinn World Traveler. I stayed in the cooler areas and near the shade, which made the ride actually pretty tolerable. It wasn't bad at all on the bike.
