Just a bit hot here...

Speaking of which, have you seen the ad for air conditioning (we don’t have any) which shows the guy frying his eggs and bacon on his serving plate and making toast on the windowsill...feels like that in this house even though it’s only...um...just checked...90 degrees outside. 97 for a high yesterday. It’s our hot week of the summer.

Anyway, it’s what makes me glad that the seasons do change here. For the time being, though....Happy Summer Solstice and Strawberry Moon back to your folks!

We’re pretty much right on schedule with about 7.5 inches precipitation so far this year (historical average by end of June--7.6). Of course, we only get around 16.5 inches a year, so at least our hot isn’t as humid as for most folks in the US.

By this time last year, we had already gone over our yearly average and ended up with our 3rd wettest year on record at 25.25 inches.

Everyone in KC complained about the month long stretch of rain between April and May. Now they can't stop whining since we haven't had rain in almost a month and it's in the upper 90's and even 100's some times. I would commit some serious crimes if it meant we could get back to the rain.

Aren't thunderstorms wonderful? One swept through this afternoon and the temps dropped from 90 to 60 in just an hour or so. Nice cool sleep tonight.

I heard on the news a couple of weeks ago that Texas had enough rain in April to cover the entire state to a depth of 8 inches. I'd believe it.
