Currently 105.8 degrees F. 11% Humidity. Slight breeze with some gusts. Typical late-July day in Las Vegas... they're expecting some monsoonal activity this weekend from the remnants of Hurricane Dolly.

Sattie, I wish I could send you some of our rain. We've just broken a 28 year record for the month of July. I keep emptying plant pots of water, but they are starting to rot anyway. I think I'll start looking online for a "How To Build An Ark" kit.

You guys can have some of our rain - My Mother's tomato plants are rotting :( I was soooo looking forward to some homegrown tomatoes this summer! Now we'll only get the dinky cherry tomatoes.

Don't feel badly. My garden is looking like crap, things are rotting. Today was the first day in probably a month we didn't have rain. But, more forecasted for tomorrow. The Canadian Open (gold) is a few blocks from me. They keep getting rained out.
