Yesterday was in the 80s and humid. Haven't turned on the AC yet so last night as a fitful sleep. This morning the weather turned and now it's in the 60s and dry. I've had the windows open around the house we can cool down and sleep well tonight.

Where did summer go? Yeah, I know, it wasn't supposed to be summer yet, but tell that to the weather. It's 9C (48F). It must have rained pretty hard last night. Some of the dandelions, violets, and lamium were lying down this morning. The dandelions haven't bothered to open up their flowers today.

They had about ten tornadoes in Texas and Oklahoma last night. A school in OK was having their prom and it got interrupted. The kids had to spend it standing around in the hallway. I wish this season for these dang storms would hurry up and be over with.

What is your weather like right now?

Jeez, I'm freezing my butt off, after being lulled into a false summer this weekend. Its currently 48F here along the mighty Mississippi. At least the wind died down a bit and I got Beagle walked.

Could be worse, friends in ND have snow drifts!

Rain off and on with threat of thunder showers and it's muggy. 20C (68F), feels like 27C (81F). I shouldn't need the air conditioning when it's only 20C, but I do.

Right now our temperature is at 53F. We are expecting thunderstorms and rain later today and then sunshine with the temperature climbing up to the low 60's. We really need the rain.

We had a fire the other day right outside the building. Someone tossed out a lit cigarette and the dry grass along the highway caught fire. Everything is so dry and brittle. Perfect for brush fires. So every drop of rain that comes are way is welcome.
