Goodness Dawg, hope you guys don't get flooded out or drown!

Like taxy, it's been hot and humid here in OH. We will certainly leave extra $$ for our daughter to cover her extra in her electric bill.

Wow, Dawg...that sure is a lot of rain!

It's been so blasted hot here. Today was 109F, tomorrow's forecast is 112F. Not a drop of rain in sight. Tends to make a person grumpy.

Well, we are supposed to be getting something from the tropics. We'll see. The weathermen in these here parts are not too accurate.

We had storms earlier, but probably more tonight. I love falling asleep to the sound of rain and thunder.

64 glorious degrees. Unfortunately the sun is not over the mountain, yet. We are supposed to have temps in the 80-90F range.

We did get our storm last night with another one expected tonight. So sad, our neighbors tree, about 5 years old was laying on the ground this morning.

The temperatures have been so hot I know I'd better be a good girl so I don't end up in hell. Predicting a high of 68 on Thursday. Come ON Thursday!

In true western Kentucky weather, we began the day with choking humidity and high temps. It was about 80F when I looked at the thermometer at 7 a.m. Gonna warm up when the sun makes its appearance. By noon it was near 100F. Storm clouds began to form and, at about 7 p.m., we had a whizzer of a storm. Lots of high winds and torrential-like rain. Blew baskets off the porch eaves and toppled container plants.

After it was all said and done, we'd had some sort of serious storm. Lots of trees down in the region and damage. This is only the beginning of July. We don't usually see these types of weather events until August.

Me thinks Mother Nature is having a hissy fit!!

Glad we're not farmers. But...all of you out there should thank our farmers. They're having a devil of a time trying to feed us. I see it all around us because we live in the heartland of our country and it's not pretty right now.

It's 23h20 (11:20 P.M.) and it's 27C (79F) feels like 34C (93F). I am so glad we have air conditioning.
