It's cooler here than it was yesterday. Yesterday it was at least 90 at one point, but very muggy for being sunny. They called for severe thunderstorms last night and it got windy with the front moving in and clouded over. Today it is still windy and cloudy, no thunderstorm. It's supposed to be sunny. Not sure if it's ever going to rain or not, so have no idea what the day will hold in store for me.
I already weeded (somewhat). Lots of crabgrass coming up in my flower gardens already. Which I guess means it's been dry.

I never wish for warmer weather...the drifts could be 15 feet deep and the windchill -50 and I will still never wish for Summer to come along. This heat is wiping me out.

Hot, mid 80's, cold front moving through so we are getting a nice breeze and the humidity is dropping. It is very dry here. We need some rain and sun to bring on the sweet corn. None to be had, not even pirate corn!

Every time the heat wipes me out I think of shoveling all that snow every winter.

Ninety-six & climbing. Heat index today is supposed to reach 106.

Going outside to do regular chores is like embarking on the Bataan Death March.

I hate snow so much that I will put up a few months of hot, in exchange for 9 months of mild weather.

Growing up in Maine, I got my fill of shoving snow. Right after I moved out my parents bought a snow blower, LOL!

I'm with you, Princess. With a 4 wheel drive, a snowmobile, good pair of boots and a community without sidewalks and shoveling ordinances; snow and some warm clothes sure beats sweltering heat. Heat and humidity is great for bugs, snakes, mildew and unfortunately some pretty nice veggies.

I move so much snow I've got THREE snowblowers! They all have a specific purpose. And FIVE snow shovels, so I have one to get out each door!
And I'm always snowblowing and shoveling uphill! Both ways!
