    The first two weeks of July were killers for me and my neighbor here in central Indina. Working on installing my new deck it was just unbearable for us in the midafternoon hours in the sun and we would give it up about 13:00 and not start again until 17:00. Yesterday however we worked on it straight through from 08:30 until 21:00 only stopping to slurp down iced tea or other fluids. No heat cramps or exhaustion but lots of sore muscles. The older one gets the harder the heat hits.
