Yesterday...lime and 20-10-10...was so humid that the fertilizer that was dribbled on the first bags was alreadt a wet spot in about 10 minutes...

Have a feeling the seed would have refused to get out of a bag if I was trying to plant....temps are miserable

I was always told not to spread fertilizer when it's going to get over 75 degrees out because it will burn the plants. Makes sense to me, does that sound about right?

Burning can be a problem, but a bigger concern is nitrogen volatilization if urea is used as a nitrogen souce. When urea is spread in high temperatures without incorporation or rainfall, the N will volatilize into the air when combined with dew.

What Whitemarsh said. You Lost the Nitrogen or a good part of it the Phos. and Potash will stay put.
What are you planting now? If getting ready for wheat. Sow it at the appropriate time and frtilize later with straight N. or more 20-10-10.
