Yesterday was beautiful, it barely hit 80. Now we are looking at 4 straight days over 100! Don't feel bad for me though, I work inside with A/C and my house stays nice and cool. I do feel terrible for people who have to work outside or have no a/c.

Two of our outside thermometers, both in heavy shade, read 100F and it's not the heat of the day. It's been brutal today. I watered our container veggie garden twice today and both times they were showing signs of wilting. Some of the low ground cover is curling up and falling over. That's new today. Tomorrow's supposed to be hotter.
