    98 degrees, heat index of 106-114. Isolated T-storms tonight.

    So, what's the weather where you are?

    Yesterday it was 93* heat index of 101 or so. It was soooo hot and humid. Today is better, not as humid or hot. Supposed to be 91* and stormy this weekend. I had my kids go out 6 or 7 times yesterday while I was at work to check on the chickens. I also had them spray them with a spray bottle of water to help. Most of the chickens really seem to like it.

    Well, it has gone down two degrees since noon, to 97 degrees, humidity through the roof. I wish it would rain!

    Well, since I'm just a stone's throw away, you (the OP) can probably guess. Walk out the back door, and the heat and humidity land on you like a blanket right out of the dryer, that's not quite dry! I keep trying to get things done outside, but keep running back in for a drink or to cool off. Maybe I'll drag the kids away from the Wii and throw them in the pool (joking!)

    Right now, down-pouring and Thunderstorm. I might lose power. I lose it here at the drop of a hat....

    Hot and very dry. We were promised a fifty per cent chance of rain today, but it never happened, even though I put the sprinklers out on the garden. Sigh.... maybe tomorrow.
