I'm so glad that Irene missed you! If it goes like they say, it'll miss me also. I'm keeping my eyes on it though!

It is HOT! I think this is summer. I can't take the sun or too much heat due to medications and a skin infection I had a couple of years ago on my leg. So, to go out I have to cover up, slather any exposed skin with a heavy sunscreen and wear a hat...have I ever mentioned I HATE hats?

This could be a bad one...please take caution if you're in an area prone to flooding or if there are trees near your house. STAY SAFE

Take care, all! What wild weather!

We have had no rain for a couple weeks, and don't expect any for another week. Irene has sucked us dry. Upper 80s today, with a nice cool off tonight.
