If the local news station is correct, we're heading into day ten of temperatures at 100 or above.
The good news is that it isn't humid. The bad news is that it's not raining, at least on my little piece of heaven. We've had pop up thunderstorms for the past few days, which have dropped some rain, but not in my neighborhood. We had a sprinkle yesterday, but it didn't even make the rain gauge damp. Some parts of town have had awful winds and damage from fallen trees and power lines (and no power), but I've been lucky.
This, however, is my lawn:
My friend mentioned that her lawn is now the same color as the siding of her house (her house is brown). Considering that August is usually the hottest and driest month, and we're only in the beginning of July, I hate to imagine what it may look like by then.
