Well it sure would have created some interesting conversations around the supper tables in town.

Sunny, but humid.
Tornado watches out in West Texas that stretches up through Oklahoma and into Kansas. Pretty much tornado alley. Hope they don't move this way, if they do, I'll get some more storm pics
Warm and sunny today but there was a horrendous (well, by our standards) storm overnight on Friday. I got up on Saturday morning to find the kitchen ceiling on the floor in a pool of water! This weekend was a bank holiday weekend (ie UK national holiday - don't ask!) so most of Saturday was spent on the telephone trying to get someone to come and do a temporary repair and quote for the repairs. It's still school holidays here so most of the roofing contractors in the telephone directory were away on holiday. I eventually found someone who told me his wife had insisted he came. He helped me clear up the mess as well, bless his little cotton socks!

Awful heat and humidity, some schools are even telling parents not to send the kids because they no air conditioning.

Meanwhile Addie, 60 miles away the low of the night wasn't even that cool! We recorded 65.8 overnight. Hit a high of 87, now we're down to a balmy 83.5. Yup, got the AC on...and I'm still crabby.

It feels like an attic outside, very hot & humid. It has not even cooled down at night! Area schools letting out early & after school activities are being canceled. Kids & the elderly are getting sick from the heat.
