Just started raining lightly, about an hour ago.

It's 72F now, we haven't had rain for a few weeks. Supposed to be mid to upper 90s in the upcoming week.

It rained hard for about 15 minutes, lots of wind and thunder, that was several hours ago. Cooled it off nicely outside, 61F right now.

Did any of it reach the fires? Even 15 minutes can be a help.

So much for the rain helping. All it did was to spark more fires from the 100 strikes of lightening.

I just looked out the window. the wind is blowing and the willow tree has all its branches now growing sideways. It is overcast. Not a day for taking a nice walk.

97F, with a heat index in the 100's. Heat advisory, many schools around here got out early today. The one I was at lost its A/C, so we sweated it out all day, then they fixed it. More of the same expected for the rest of the week, and still no rain anticipated.

I don't mind heat if I have A/C or a nice cool body of water to hang in. Unfortunately, one can only take so much clothing off and still maintain some semblance of dignity! (and avoid being arrested...)
