Thunderstorm. I hope it lasts for awhile. I've got the windows open for some fresh air.

I am afraid not. Take a look at what is happening in Greenland and the Antarctica.

I don't know if others along the coast have noticed, but our high tides come in higher and farther in this year. A lot of homes along the coast on Cape Cod are in danger of going into the ocean. The land they are built on has been eroded due to storms coming in further.

The thunderstorm sounds lovely Zhizara, I love thunderstorms

105F today. It's almost a waste of time to post here. Still way up in the 100s here...again. Even the nights stay in the upper 80s, so we don't even begin the day with much of a cool down.

But, wonder of wonders, we had one tenth of an inch of rain a few minutes ago. Kind of a mouse fart in a hurricane because we're more than 13 inches behind in rainfall this year.

It's just breaking my heart to see the state the farmers' fields are in and how low our 2-acre pond is getting. If this keeps up, it'll be little more than a wading pool. However, Glenn said a little while ago that he hasn't seen any dead fish yet. That's good. It could still happen.

It was 97 today, humidity was 68% then we had a huge monster thunderstorm roll through with high winds. Knocked down trees all over our little town. We were without power for 5 hours ... we are the lucky ones as many are still without power. Looking forward to next week when it will be cooler, less humid and dryer .. I don't care for these thunderstorms here .. they are fierce.

94°F today...miserable hot for me. It's supposed to be hotter tomorrow. The Missoula Marathon is tomorrow, I'm glad I was otherwise occupied when it was time to sign up or I'd be crying.

I'd be able to believe more in global warming if during the decade I've lived here if it wasn't for the fact that we've had easily more record lows than this year's record high.

But it HAS been incredibly miserable. Most of us do not have central a/c. It's supposed to cool somewhat tonight and tomorrow, and we actually sat outside for awhile tonight.
