"The weather service says weekend highs are predicted for the low to mid-90s. Humidity will be high, making it feel even more uncomfortable. The heat index is forecast to push near 100."

Weekend heat stress warning for Middle Tennessee | theleafchronicle.com | The Leaf Chronicle

Lots of visitors in Middle TN this weekend because of Bonnaroo and the Country Music Awards Festival.

Of course you have to be careful not to over-do it, but to have warnings posted all over is very strange to me. I guess the visitors don't know anything about warm weather. I wonder what part of the country most people going to these events are from. If you are from Florida, this is nothing to even think twice about. However, if you are from Michigan, it could certainly pose a problem, especially if you are drinking beer, etc. I would rather have it hot and humid than 9 degrees and shivering. But, I know many would differ on that!

I was out watering animals in shorts yesterday afternoon and sweating enough to soak a shirt. The humidity these last few weeks has been horrible. Suppose I should've known by watching the weather. Everyday has had some percentage of rain chances since our big flood. It wants to rain, just won't. Hope it goes away!

According to weather.com, the heat index in Murfreesboro is 106-107 currently. Actual temperature is 96. Average for this time of year is more like 85. It's miserable outside.

Already heard on the local radio there have been a number of heat-related health issues at Bonnaroo.

For the last week I've been starting work at daybreak and knocking off around 1-3. Today started at light and quit at 9...tooooooo hot.

It was pretty warm up here too, but the mountains tempered it a bit. Hope ya'll are staying hydrated in middle TN. I walked outside this morning (at 7:30) to a wall of heat and moisture. It felt like August!!! Ugh!
