Girding up for another hot one! It was already 80F at 7:30 this morning. Supposed to be, at the minimum, 108F today. The humidity is so high you can nearly cut the air with a machete. I expect the pool water to be in the mid-90F range. Bath water. I think I'll siphon some off so cold/cooler water can be added to make it more refreshing.

It's been like this for a couple of weeks and the weather predictions are for more of the same easily into next week. I don't handle the heat very well since I got sick and it's taking its toll. Well, it's taxing everyone.

Our high today has been 84F. Very comfortable. Even a nice breeze comes with it.

It's thundering as if we live under a bowling alley. The lightning would put the best lazer show to shame. And the rain is pouring down. We are nearly a foot below the annual water requirements, so every one of these inches of rain is preciousl So far this month we've had 2.10 inches of rain - most of it in the last two days. I'm loving this while Himself is whining "I'll have to cut the grass!" in the background. Suck it up, Shirley.

I'm in the "Yay! It's raining" camp and then reality sets in and I'm all "Dang, now I'll have to mow."

We had one heck of a thunderstorm last night with a downpour to match. Yesterday we had a respite from the unbearable hot, humid weather. So much for that. It is already 83F. and going to the low 90's. Showers in the early afternoon. Good. We need the rain.

Sunny and 90 today, sunny and 95 tomorrow, lather, rinse, repeat. That is the forecast through Thursday, with a remote chance for a thundershower. Normal August weather here.
