Sunny and clear at the moment, somewhere in the mid 70's. I should get out of the house and enjoy it!
Wow Carole, I'd be nervous about fires as well. Hope you get some rain soon, get out there and do your rain dance!

Almost exactly as carolelaine just described. We've only gotten .02 of an inch of rain so far this month with none in sight for the next few days. Burn bans have been in effect for weeks. Even so, there have been several wild fires - one 200-acre one sparked by a tractor engine as a farmer was combining his corn, another 1,000-acre one (don't know how it started), two more immense ones yesterday. One of those was caused by a spark from a welder a farmer was using to fix some equipment in a barn.

Sure could use some of that rain the folks north of us are getting too much of.

At first I was going to say that it was hot here with summer returning but after reading the last couple posts I guess I will just say "warm"

Hope you all get the rain and or cool weather you need. Maybe a little rain dance?

So hot yesterday, the 105 caused a 3 hour power outage and it stayed humid and in the 80's all night. Today lots of white billowy clouds, muggy and HOT 106 expected..Hard to catch your breath if you venture outside...

Cold snap here. Better get my jacket out. Temps are down a bit. Now only in the 90s and humid. Still no rain. Last measurable rain was July 20th and none is predicted for the next several days. Although, we're told Labor Day weekend will be in the upper 80s and low 90s temperature wise. I'll take it. Just wish the humidity would go down proportionately.
