I've seen news clips about the flooding there, YT. Please stay safe!

Sunny and humid. Temp is about 80F, but the "feels like" is 90ish. The humidity is almost 80%, so it's pretty sticky. Forecast is for pop-up storms all afternoon. Typical for this area for this time of the year.

YT, did you get flooding in your town? No floods here in SW England.

The sun is out right now which is amazing since I haven't seen it in two weeks.... can't deal with this English weather!

Had over 6 inches of rain yesterday and are expecting lots more tonight. I think I had better call Noah and see if he has the boat ready.

jeepers, that is a lot of rain.

We still are in borderline drought conditions. Had 3/10th inch of rain yesterday, maybe some more today. But we are fairly confident that we will get a second cutting of hay next week, when this cloudy weather passes.

Hot and muggy here.

Hot and muggy here, too, beth. Sure could use some rain as well. All we've had the last week or so are the "hope" of typical late-afternoon summer pop-up storms. None have materialized, though.

Finally a day of full sunshine here in Bristol! Not one cloud in the sky (yet) and it's about 76' in our garden!

It's about 86F here with very high humidity. Supposed to hit 100F today. Got almost that high yesterday. Haven't had rain in weeks and folks have stopped cutting their grass. It just breaks off under our feet. Would love to have some rain come through and break this heat. I can't imagine what kind of rain dance the farmers are doing. Although, it's great weather for haying. Looks as though the farmers have taken advantage of the dryness to cut and bail their hay. The fields are dotted with huge round bails.
