View From Purcell, Oklahoma: Return of the Redneck Slip n Slide

Return of the Redneck Slip n Slide

Since we were on day 18 of 100+ heat (we have now made it 21 straight days and many more to come), the children demanded that the Redneck Slip 'n Slide be reopened.

Turn out was smaller than previous years. I think 105 to 110 degrees and 50-80% humidity even stops the kids from playing in the water. I didn't slide this time, but I was so wet from sweating I looked like I did.

LOVE IT!!  The Redneck Slip and Slide sounds like a perfect way to stay cool in this heat!  Here in good ole Texas we are above 100 too.  It's just plain HOT!

Total fun!  Do you add a bit of dishwashing soap to really slick it up?  My son wishes our yard was longerrrrrr

It looks like the red neck slip n slide worked pretty well.   You have to do what you have to do to beat the heat.

Wouldn't it be neat to be a kid again and know what we know now?

THanks for the comments everyone.

Yes, we added dishwashing soap. Although the youngest thanks he has to be slathered in it from head to toe!

Growing up on a lot that was slanted down like that one, this was one of my favorite activities. (The redneck slip n' slide was the best!)

Kids don't complain much if they are having fun even if the weather is 100° +.  Today, in my neck of the woods, it is 90°.
