It was sunny this morning. It got overcast for the afternoon and then it started raining late afternoon. Of course. We were going to grill burgers. 17C (63F).

Over 7 inches of rain this month and still it keeps coming.

I wish we could share it with the folks out west!
I hear you Aunt Bea. We have had showers off and on for the past couple of days. Then the sun comes out late in the afternoon.

A few days ago they were getting huge dust storms in Phoenix. Now they are getting flood waters. I am not wishing flood water for Calif. but I do want them to get a week of steady rain. Enough to replace the water in the lakes and rivers, and to soak the ground enough for the farmers.

A month ago I could have posted that it's raining, and then I could have just posted "ditto" for every day thereafter. If I could, I'd bottle it and send it to CA. I can't remember ever having such a rainy spring/summer before.

30C (86F) and feels like 37C (99F). I'm sure glad I have air conditioning.

It's a blast furnace, with mosquitos. 95F, with a heat index of 107. Too hot for a walk or the pool today!

It got into the upper 80s today in Oak Island, NC, and then a spectacular thunderstorm lowered the temperature to 66. The storm is gone but t's still pretty breezy out there.

After the storms that moved through yesterday, we have the quintessential summer day. It's about 72, virtually no humidity, and a soft breeze blowing through the woods. So why am I here at the computer? Danged internet addiction!

Off I go to do some gardening. I'll be back later, if I can raise my arms up above my waist! Old age isn't for cowards...
