It's warm and very smoky outside today, from the ongoing wildfire in eastern North Carolina. They say a tropical storm is needed to put out the fire, because it's burning peat several feet deep.

I have abandoned yesterday's bikini for long underwear, as my sunny skies have UP and GONE, and it looks like June Gloom is making one last appearance... seriously, it's a 20 degree difference from Sunday morning.... you would never know I was partially raised in Idaho by the way I turn blue when it gets below 65 degrees.....

It has been a glorious day, sunny warm, the garden has been basking but not baking in it, but suddenly a wind has come up, brought a very angry sky and I think its going to pour...round about when I go outside to do the horses I'm imagining!

Well, it's raining... We're in the middle of prepping a BBQ for Fox News (I think they're going to broadcast the show from in front of the exchange)....400 people, and it's raining. No tents. They have no plan in place for foul weather. So, it's raining and we don't really see an end in sight.

oooh, WEATHER! I love a storm.... but that's probably because we don't get many of them in Southern Cali

but, Vera.... what a conundrum! It sounds like they are to blame.... a major production studio plans an outdoor event and doesn't have a plan for weather??? No wonder studios are losing $$.... I saw so much waste working in the industry (on ALL levels) that I left. Not even the money could keep me...
