I think it was fairly nice today. I didn't go outside because I had a headache and was still feeling fragile from yesterday's two migraines. Those were probably courtesy of the thunder storms yesterday and the day before.

Hot as the hinges of hell here and expected to remain so most of the week. Lots and lots of humidity and nothing but triple digit temps. We'll be spending a LOT of time inside and in the pool. Checked the pool water this afternoon. It was 92F. Time to siphon some off and add fresh, cooler water. I won't say "cold" water...just cooler.

GG, that sure is a lot of dark orange and red on that radar...

taxy, I hope your migraines are long-gone and don't return. Feel-better hugs on their way.

Katie, try and stay cool whatever it takes! We just turned our A/C off after turning it on last Wednesday in the wee-hours when we got back from visiting the kids in OH. Apparently, we are in hell - the kitchen weather station is reporting an outside temperature of 66.6. It will be a short-lived cool spell, though, since the temps will be back into the 90s by Friday. Ugh.

Heat Index map. USA.

Up to date everytime you click on the link. Sure seems hotter where I am than what the map shows. Maybe not where you are.

As of late...119F in Arizona, USA...

Yikes!

Did you melt yet, Cheryl? Is it at least a "dry" heat? I had the pleasure(?) of experiencing 115 degrees in Phoenix one August. Dry or not, 115 is HOT!

Our temperatures don't get that high because we actually have humidity in the air. Today's high was a somewhat soppy 91. Phew. The weather guessers are telling us a cool front is moving in. I hope so. Weatherbug keeps moving our reporting station location further and further to the NW of us. Right now the temp 20 miles away is 71. Come ON breeze, blow that cool >this< way!

We had a severe thunderstorm with golf ball size hail the night before (it's nicer tonight), my wildflowers got beaten down and my poor baby pumpkin was pummeled, the larger pumpkin made it fine. I'm a bit upset, the wildflower spot was finally showing color and I was going to get a picture of it with my pathway I built and my concrete mushroom. Now that I am done digging and moving sod and dirt, we get this storm...
