CG, it's not too terribly humid, around 8-10%. I can handle the high temps OK - or at least tolerate it - but if I go into an area where the humidity is high...ugh, that just kills me. Guess it's all what yer used to.

Princess - I'm sorry about your flowers. I was reading about that hailstorm this morning on the weather sites. Wow - did some pretty major damage in some areas!

It was pretty bad, my yard looks like a tossed salad was thrown there. I'll try to get pics tomorrow, have to work tonight. Right now it's just raining and a little hail. Need the moisture, but severe thunderstorm warnings I can do without.

I love summer thunderstorms. I wish we had them here.

Ours come with golf ball sized hail and tornadoes...you are welcome to those.

Well, I'm weird in that I love severe weather. Growing up, I used to enjoy all sheltered up during typhoons.

What is your weather like right now?

It was cool enough to take Beagle for a long walk, 83°F. Then I went out to weed the front garden, and it started to sprinkle. No problem, says I, and kept weeding. Then it started to rain. Now it's 79°, and the rain has stopped, so I guess I should go back out and weed some more.

Drat, PF. So sorry about your wildflower garden and your baby pumpkin.

I like storms, too, but it sucks when they cause damage to plants you've worked hard to cultivate and other property you've worked hard to pay for. Children don't have to worry about that, of course.

Poor Baby Bumpkin, PF. I like gentle storms - I know, it's an oxymoron, but then I can be a moron at times.

It was sunny and 80 while I was running errands today and I left the car windows open, including the "window" in the roof! After all of the 90+ and near 90 days, 80 degrees seems...balmy. Yikes!

I saw some pictures of that. The hail was piled so high it looked like snow. I think it was Pine Bluffs where every single house in town was damaged and the National Guard was called out to help. We get hail like that in the Puget Sound sometimes, but nothing like that!

Yes, Pine Bluffs got the worst of it. Several businesses are gathering up supplies to take there. They need garbage bags (can do), food and clothing. Some will need furniture due to rain damage, will send what I can.
