69F. and overcast. I can live with this weather. I have been in the house all day. Not one of my better days but an feeling much better now. We are supposed to get rain tonight, tomorrow and Tuesday. I am glad I have nothing planned during those rainy days.

Tomorrow I have to go get my new EBT card. Spike lost my old one. That means I have to get my picture taken. I hate having my picture taken. I never take a good one. Going in the rain. Oh Joy!

Yes! Everyone here has either an evaporative cooling system or A/C.

This pretty much sums up the way I feel about extreme heat!

I've seen that twilight zone episode! Not a chance of cooling off here Aunt Bea, it's only going to get hotter. Next week will be up around 108. Then later in the summer it'll get to 110+. But if you go from an A/C house, to an A/C car, to an A/C store, it's survivable. LOL

Yes, the high desert. Northeastern Kern County, at the base of the southern Sierra Nevadas. I could sure go for the 70's now....

And still no rain where it is needed the most. Here's hoping every day. We have rain coming in the next couple of days. I wish I could send some your way.

Thanks, Addie. We'll take whatever we can get.

There was a small 3.6 earthquake today when I went out to get the mail and was chatting with the mail carrier - we were saying no wonder they call this area 'shake and bake'.

Lovely day here. It was 23C (73F) and felt like it. It was perfect for spending a few ours in Old Montreal with my sister.

It's raining buckets! The DirecTV is out, and it's thundering and lightning here along the mighty Mississippi. Obviously, Beagle is not interested in a walk.

Hot hot hot! It's cooled off to 94F and the heat index is only 99! My master gardener group cancelled our planned trip to the zoo tomorrow because it's supposed to be even hotter. I don't know how people survived without air conditioning. Can you imagine wearing long skirts and petticoats in this weather?!?

You're not kidding GG!! When we flew back home from your neck of the woods yesterday I felt like "I'd been rode hard and put away wet"! OMG...that heat and humidity is a killer! Getting off the plane here to the low 80's with no humidity was a homecoming gift to be sure. I hear you have jumped from winter to summer, and spring just didn't happen.

Down to 102F from 106F. The humidity is only 4% so that's a good thing. I can't take that high humidity.
