The Heat Record Stands!

Just about a week ago, I posted with a complaint about our dangerously hot weather.

But, we did not break the 1980 record of 42 straight days of 100 degrees or more! Mainly because of a refreshing 1/2" of rain we received last Saturday. That day, the high temperature was about 89.

Small consolation. Today, it is going to be 107 degrees again. I am experiencing extraordinary water loss from my small pond -- meaning I have to put water in it twice daily, at the least. When the temperature does not get below 84 at night, you can see where the problem is.

It's just something to endure. Perhaps we will have to endure this weather beyond Labor day. Maybe by mid-September, we will see some cooling off, hopefully at night.
