I wish to remind the weatherman that we live in Kansas. 111F is not acceptable.
"Next Monday it will be 99F. But between you, me and the fence post, I am trying to be optimistic, it will actually be in the triple digits" quote the weatherman. He now admits to lying, but we love him for that.
I can manage about 2 hours each morning in the garden before it gets to be too much. The animals get watered and hosed off 4x a day. The grass is dead, my garden is struggling, it's just a mess. It's even too hot for the boys to play in the mud pool! Though I have been tempted while out in the garden.
The boys and I do our morning chores then hang out watching anime. Sometimes the humidity is so high that even with the air conditioner running, you still sweat in the house. And stepping outside is like getting smacked in the face with a wet cat.
I worry about the garden, it is just baking out there in the sun. I have lost most of my purple string beans from it. Even the corn has withered a bit. It's hotter than two tit mice in a wool glove at high noon in August.
They claim rain is coming tonight and tomorrow. But if it is anything like we had the other day, you watch the rain drop hit the pavement and within seconds it evaporates. Here's hoping for a frog strangler.
