    It just will not stop raining here! UGH! I’m sick of it! [​IMG] This is where my chicks will spend this 4th – keeping dry on the patio. Does anyone put straw or shavings in their runs? I put shavings, but with all of this rain it's such a huge mess.

    I can't even remember when it rained last, it has been so long ago. Everything is so dry, we don't even have weeds. We got up and mowed the lawn before sunup. It is probably going to be 120 today. If the summer rains don't show up, we are really in for it. I hate Pheonix.

    Hot and dry here as well! We hit 110 yesterday, and we are suppose to get to about 113 today. and 115+ by thursday. No rain in site, in fact we havent had ANY rain since Feb 3rd and then it was only .14 in. In fact we have had less than about 1 inch of rain in the last 2 yrs total. The only saving grace is that our humidity is so low (about 6%) that it does cool down really nice in the over night to about 65 or so. But i guess it is the price we have to pay to NOT have to own a snow shovel. [​IMG]

    Sorry guys! Guess I shouldn’t complain. On the up side, everything here is lush and green. My yard needs mowing, but I’d need pirogue to get to my tractor! And thank goodness we don’t have to shovel snow either![​IMG]

    We have been lucky. A small shower everyday but just enough to keep everything watered except it brings the humidity really high 98%. Parts of Arkansas has been getting floods but we have just enough.
