    Hide! We try to hide from the heat. All the shades are down, a.c. is on ect. We will venture back out when the temperature goes back down to reasonable number, like 90.

    Here in Canada it doen’t get quite as hot but a cool one and get the out side stuff done in the morning. The air conditioned cabs are for the afternoon. There is nothing better than getting up at sunrise in the summer time.

    Nothing is better than AC and a jug of cold water for keeping cool on a combine. We each carry our own jug and every person on our crew drinks an entire jug of water every day. Thank goodness for AC. I don’t know how the old guys did it. They were tough men for certain.

      Marcy – The heat must be getting to me . . . I was 3/4 through your post before I realized you said “bandanas” not “bananas”!!!

    I’m terribly susceptible to heat, so I have to really watch it. We do LOTS of fluids – Gatorade, water and a herbal tea that’s filled with electrolyte balancing ingredients. Also I try to keep the meals light for the crew – loaded with protein, fruits and vegetables.
    Then there’s always the cow tank and the shade tree by the pond to fish under. 🙂

    Try to stay in the a/c. Drink plenty of fluids. Start early with what has to be done outside the house and tractors. Take a shower if you need to cool down.

    Water, Cool Water & more water. I have ran combines when the AC failed in 100-106 degrees. The wheat must be cut when it’s ready. I would open the door for al little breeze on the upwind side of field.

    I prefer to vacation in Estes Park, Colorado – but if I can’t do that then work early and late and be in a cab w a/c or just inside working on the pile of papers!
