I thought about quitting at noon, but kept on till 5:30. I was working in the shadows today.. I got on the roof and burnt.. LITERALLY burnt the palm of my hand. I have came to the conclusion that roofers are the toughest men alive. I worked out in the sun for ~10 min then decided to go back to the shade. I had a glass full of ice water right before I was working in the sun, I stopped to move stuff and got the glass.. the water was then warm :eek: ALL the ice (full glass) was gone

It only got into the low 80's here but I was in the shop with the fans on so I would not have noticed if it had been hotter. Don't think I could deal with temps close to or over 100, especially with the humidity we have.

Had to quit at 1:30. Felt like I had put in 16 hours.
