Hearing from lots of folks around the country about the heat. 103 degrees in Indiana, 107 degrees in Colorado and Utah, 104 degrees in the Midwest, and then add in massive wildfires in Colorado, Utah and other places, etc, etc. etc.
I remember those hot days growing up in Missouri. Sweaty, lying on top of the sheets with my face by the window hoping and praying for any kind of breeze to come in with a damp washcloth on the face to try and stay cool. It was a wonderful day when the attic fan was installed – guaranteed breeze! As soon as I headed off to school the folks got central air.
This morning it was 55 degrees when I left the house and I think it is 60 out there right now with a very light rain. I am still wearing long sleeve shirts and packing around my gortex jacket – June feels just like October/November out here.
I sure wish we could split the difference with those of you suffering from the heat and I am pretty sure you wouldn’t mind sharing. Send about 20 or 25 degrees our way if you can! My tomatoes would be very grateful.
Don’t forget to keep an eye on your pets.
