So here we are in June…Feeling like it’s August and being told we can expect a light tropical weather year. If this keeps up you are going to see all of us wishing and hoping for some tropical moisture to keep from drying up and blowing away on the afternoon winds that come blowing in off the Gulf of Mexico. Sadly they don’t bring any rain with them. I broke down yesterday and turned on the sprinkler for a bit just there around our back yard where we spend a bit of time each day…

If it’s not hot where you are…enjoy it.
