    can we talk about the weather?

    Temp got to 111 degrees in Little Rock, Arkansas yesterday. We are in northern Arkansas and temp did get over 100 degrees. My daughter lives in LR but like almost everyone there she is staying inside with the A/C.
    As a former cattle farmer I feel terrible about what farmers and ranchers are going through in these conditions. What little hay is available is priced out of sight.
    And no end in this situation is seen by the forecasters.
    I have only mowed my yard once this year but will have to get up about 5 a.m. one day soon to do it. Grass isn't growing but the weeds are doing just fine.
    Y'all take care out there. Don't risk overworking in the heat. It can be deadly.

    Mowing the grass is something that I have not missed much. I would rather have it green though. I think I heard our weatherman say that we have only had two days this month under 90 degrees. We have had probably 7-10 days 100 or more.

    We went away for the weekend and the temps stayed in the high 70s and low 80s. We had 95+ temps where we were. We get back and it's back to the high 90 here again. I'm still watering a few flowers every couple of days, but have let everything else go to brown crumbly mess.

    I was commenting to my wife this morning that I was surprised we haven't seen more grass fires than we have. I'm going on 6 weeks since my last mow, I could probably walk around with a weed wacker and take care of what weeds have popped up though.

    Still pretty good here high today about 65 degrees. Thursday 20% chance of rain which usually means no rain.

    That's about how many days we have had under 100*.

    Well I just spent a week in Park City Utah where the temps never got above the mid 80's but I cam back to the hot humid monsoon weather been in the high 90's with the dew point in the 70% range every day sever thunder storms in the evening. This is the wet'est monsoon season we have had since I moved here. Where is that dry heat when you need it. You guys can keep the humidity.... yuck

    Temperatures are down to the high 20s and low 30s again (80s to our US cousins.) We've had a little rain, but the fruit and vegetable crops are in danger at present. It is 23 right now, about 73F.

    I used to have a beautiful plush green front lawn till that drought we had last year! I think we only cut the lawn one time. Didn't have to worry about the weeds as it was to hot and dry even for them!

    I didn't even try to keep my lawn alive by watering it and I refuse to do so this year. It will survive or die.
