We have a 96 degree afternoon with nary a breeze.

50% chance of rain tomorrow...crossing fingers.

Take care Wasabi, stay safe.

kadesma, I heard on the radio that about 130 or so folks have died because of the heat out there.

My sympathies to all our California friends. Try to keep cool.

I also sympathize with those in California, and other areas that are having triple digit temps. It's been hot here too, but 90 is about the hottest we've had so far, though our humidity is ridiculous. We had thunderstorms today and lost power for about 20 minutes which was fine because it was daytime, though it got really hot without any fans or ac. I was right in the middle of canning jam when the power went out Managed to can it safely though, jars sealed just fine.

Thanks mudbug, I have been. Yes the biggest number of deaths being in my county area..These were elderly, homeless and infirm who bless them didn't want to or couldn't afford to run their A/c units..The people here have set up or opend up places for them to come to that are cool so this is helping some.
We've had the a/c going night and day through all of this, stepping out side was like having a heavy rug thrown over your head with no air left, it almost gagged you. Today is much better..

It sprinkled today. Too bad that it was not more, it would have been great for the Ralston Fire on my national forest. Today, was cooler than the past few days. I had to put on a sweatshirt this evening.

thank god sc, because the neighbor's wife was starting to get upset. (j/k)

it is crappy and drizzly out here today. same goes for tomorrow. i didn't get the grass seed down on the bare patches in time, or otherwise, it would be a nice, cool, refreshing rain.
