It's 79F right now and it's supposed to reach 95 today. I'll need to water the vegetable garden this afternoon. Tropical Storm Arthur may brush us Friday. There are already hurricane watches for the North Carolina coast.

btw, I follow the National Hurricane Center for news and updates on tropical storms and hurricanes, although our local weather forecasters are pretty good.

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.

A rare day here in nc, 84 degrees with a breeze in July! Sitting on my deck under the umbrella just enjoying the weather before the friends show up for dinner. Not often we can enjoy the outdoors in the summer during the day without sweating!

We have had the most beautiful 4th of July weather that Pittsburgh has had in years. Sunny and warm, breezy, low humidity, temps in high 70's to low 80s. We have not had our air condition running at all and we're very comfortable. Next week the temps are rising, and the clouds and rain are moving in.

102F here now, and the humidity is up at 17%. That's high for here. It looked like we might get some thunderstorms here last night, but as usual, it passed us by. *sigh*

17% humidity is high for where you live! Wow. Ours is at 69% and that's common here.

I know Taxy....LOL, that's so low compared to so many of you. I visited Missouri in August one year and literally thought I was going to melt into a puddle.
