I fell asleep early last night. Slept through rain and wind storm. Trees down all around me this morning. About the worst I suffered is a couple lawn chairs blew over and I was kicked off the internet most of the day. I went to a store. They were closed no power. Then Just as I was turning away, their power came on and they opened. No power for ~ 24 hours. Needless to say, they had emptied their freezers, meats, dairy and even their cheeses, and most cold foods and they had produce and canned goods. I bought a loaf bread and a watermelon is all.

Nice hot day, slightly humid, a good day for all of the local high school kids to graduate and party.

The heat and humidity are supposed to be with us for a few days.

We are truly blessed in CNY, no fire, no flood, no locust!

Can't complain too loud!

I'm freezing my shorts-clad knees in the sunroom - and enjoying every minute of it! Wish I could bottle and bag this up for use over the next 4-6 days. Heading for the mid-80s and more until later next week. phew!

Right now at Lake Geneva WI we have upper 70s with humidity typical Midwest summer morning. Later this afternoon as the atmosphere heats thunderstorms will pop. I hope they hold off long enough for the cousins reunion.

Strange. It's really cloudy, has rained periodically, and feels cooler than 80F. We were up to 88 earlier.

Looking forward to seeing the Supermoon tonight, if the clouds allow it!

Very hot and humid, nice breeze!

Do any of you notice an increase in the number of emails from pizza shops as the temperature goes up!

I've gotten three from Papa John's so far this morning!
