Texas, sorta between Austin and San Antonio. some small chance of rain this weekend, maybe, or so they say. I need to go out and look at the sky, do my own prognostications.

We've had 40+ days of temps over 100 so far this summer, at least, and no rain in sight. I think they're shooting for 104 again today.

No, wish I did. I live in Northern Missouri and it is hot here too - 93 today.

Wish we could bottle it up to use come February.

It is so hot in Texas -

The Baptist are now sprinkling,
The Methodist are handing out handi wipes,
and the Presbyterians are give rain checks.

Yes show the weather map last night with Texas all in red. We were going into a drought when all of a sudden it started raining for 3 days. We are still low on rain in northern Illinois. I hate watering. I'm lucky to have native plants in the front yard - they don't need to be watered. Hope August is better. I'm still waiting for my tomatoes to ripen.

Newbie here, already have a rant...lol! Mother nature is not my friend right now...

Yesterday after shopping (and seeking refuge in the freezer aisle) the temp readout in my car read 107. Ok, i am a native Texan, but that is the first time I ever saw that. I am officially NOT giving up on my beautiful yard and my community garden plot!

Nothing has really thrived much in my backyard but the sunflowers, rudebekia and coneflower...thank goodness I planted those! But i am determined to see this thru and nuzzle my little green friends until this heat wave ends.

The canna and elephant ears are looking soooo sad. I have an automatic sprinkler system, but with this drought and heat my schedule just wasn't enough to keep up with their demands.

Things are looking singed and scorched for the first time since we have moved into this home about 6 years ago. I am feeling frustrated, but I know I am not alone here. We are the only ones with green grass for about 10 houses either way, because we have not been scalping the grass mowing weekly like others around. Do not understand why you would mow on a schedule instead of looking at the grass and mowing when needed.... emoticon
