Break From The Heat
It is about time that Mother Nature has given us a break! Last night was the first night in over a week and a half that we sat outside on the porch and enjoy the evening. It has been way to hot and humid to even do that after 11 consecutive days of 90 of better degree heat. Not only was the temperature hot but the HUMIDITY was anything but tolerable with heat index temperatures feeling more like 110 degrees on the skin. It was historic with 5 days at 100 degrees or better the last night we did that was back in 2007 but that was in August of that year. As you can see from this graphic it is very rare for us to have 3 days in a row of 100 degree heat and we did that in this latest heat wave. The good news is that we are now getting a break and that break from the heat will continue over the next several days with temperatures right where they show be in the mid-80's. The bad news still no drought buster type rain anytime soon as we stand at 4.71 inches below where we should be for precipitation for the year. So keep watering everyone but at least your staying cooler while doing it !
