Take care! Hope you do not end up with any severe weather!.

I feel bad for everyone on their motorcycles on there way to Sturgis bike rally.

Ugh, smoky air from the CA fires, and it's been unseasonably cool the past couple of days. Woke up to rain yesterday morning and it continued to drizzle throughout the day. It was awesome! Got so much yard work done while it was cool.

No fires for me this year! I'm like 8th on the list for call and that would be office work. They won't use me on the "front lines" until I am a year past my surgery.

Cheryl, you and yours aren't in the areas with the flooding and slides, are you? Hope not.

PF, you have a double whammy with heat and smoke. I guess you'll be hiding inside to read a lot?

Warm and sticky weather moved in overnight. We put the A/C on to dry the house out, but now we pushed it down to 75 to chill it before bed. Another day or so of A/C before we throw the windows up again.

We have been watching the flooding and mud slides on TV and was hoping that you finally got some rain. Now for Texas. I am glad that you are not in the mud slide zones. Do take care.

I do remember the last time you were in the line of volunteering. Cooking your heart out and feeding the troops. Lets hope this is a year of rest for you.

Hi CG, no we're not. It's in a neighboring county, though. This happens every year, it seems. The ground is so dry that when it does rain, it doesn't have a chance to sink in, so it's like water running off concrete until it picks up speed and soaks up everything in it's path.

Thank you too, Addie, for thinking of me. I don't know how to multi quote in one post. :-)
