Hot as the Hinges of Hell here and bone dry. I can't remember the last time we had any rain. Glenn hasn't mowed in nearly a month and our yard and the fields are brown and crunchy. The trees are showing signs of drought as they drop brown leaves. It's too early for fall leaves to be littering the ground in our region.

At least, today, the humidity isn't oppressive and stifling. This nasty heat has been with us for over a week and we're told it will be hanging around for nearly another week. Yuck.

The pool is as warm as bath water and we're going to have to siphon off some water and add cold water from the hose to make it even close to refreshing. Harley won't even go swimming in the 2-acre pond because it's too warm. After being full to overflowing, the pond has dropped at least 3 feet. Kinda hot and dry here.

It's pouring rain, and the DirecTV satellite went out. Nice and cool though.

Beautiful day today, 92F but feels cooler - bright blue sky and no wind. Yay!

Wow Katie, that sounds like some evil heat. Hope you guys get relief soon.


We had a perfect day. Cool enough to open all the windows, warm enough to have the sunroof open in the car when I was running errands. You would not hear one complaint from me if this weather stuck around until Thanksgiving. Then it need to get cold and snowy for Christmas.

We're having an instant replay of yesterday....beautiful sunny day, 75 and breezy!

Saw on the news that something is going to hit both the east and west coasts!

I think you misunderstood There are hurricanes passing both coasts that are causing dangerous beach conditions, but neither is going to hit land.

I hope you aren't near any rivers. Rivers have a way of surprising folks by rising a lot faster than they are supposed to.
