Yesterday about mid-morning, I was sitting in the rocker on the back porch with a cup of coffee. The temperature had already passed the mid-eighties. The ceiling fans on the porch were the only thing making it doable.
Later in the day, as Sherry was driving in from work, I looked over at the weather station on the credenza and saw the temperature was 97° on the front porch. Stepping out the front door to welcome Sherry home, the heat and humidity just slapped me in the face…
Just now I pulled up the forecast for today on the wunderground.com and this was what I saw:
Partly cloudy. High of 91F with a heat index of 102F. Winds from the South at 5 to 15 mph.
Sooooo… Before it gets too hot out there, I need to get out and mow the bit of yard I didn’t get mowed over the weekend. And, from what I am seeing on the forecast, there is a 20% chance of rain for the next two days… Keep your fingers crossed… It’s been 2 ½ weeks since we saw any rain and we can use some.
