I hope it rains all day for y'all. And, I hope it rains tomorrow.

Hot again today, supposed to be 100, still predicting thunder storms. Hope they wait until after our ice cream social. This next couple of weeks is always our worst time for fires. Keep your fingers crossed that the thunder storms don't come.

We had a real thunderstorm last night. Lightning, wind, rain--I think the last one we had was in June. Now I have to mow the yard for the first time in weeks. I sure hope Oklahoma gets some rain soon.

The ice cream social was a success, the temp was 100 in the sun, but under my mother's big maple it was much cooler. We even had a little breeze. No thunderstorms last night and none predicted. We did have a dust storm, but nothing like Pheonix. The dust came up over Nevada and filled the Boise Valley, but it has cleared out today.

Happy to hear the ice cream social was a success. No rain here today, so far. The weather was just beautiful. Temps in the low 90s, low humidity, for a change.

It is hotter than the dickens here in the Tri-Cities, WA. Supposed to reach 103°F here today and it is well on its way. Had to get out in the garden early this morning to beat the heat.

That is hot! It was in the low 90s here today. No rain yet, but it looks like we may get some soon.

Hot, hot, hot. With a threat of thundershowers everyday. Usually we get them in the afternoon through the night. Doesn't cool it down much just makes it more humid.

Yep! I'm about sick to death of the thunderstorm threat. This is NOT the New Jersey weather I remember. We'd be lucky to get this hot in the dead of summer let alone with Fall supposing to be right around the corner. I think this is the first year I am actually looking forward to cooler weather and wearing my hoodies. Bring on the leaves! Bring on the hot tea! Bring on the EVERYTHING cool EXCEPT SNOW!!

Here in Phoenix, AZ the newscaster said the temp will reach 113 today. My poor garden beds, they will be wilting by the end of the day. I watered them early this morning before I left for work at 6:00am. Hopefully I will not loose anything. This is supposed to be our monsoon season, ha.... not a cloud in the sky. All in the hands of the All Mighty.

It is hot here again today, maybe not quite the 106 of yesterday, but over 100. What is worse is smoke, we now have fires all around, in Eastern Oregon, and here in Idaho just to our north and east. The smell of smoke has awakened me from a deep sleep for two nights in a row. The Oregon smoke is blowing in and settling in the SW Idaho valleys. We have had wind all summer, until now, so the smoke is just hanging around. From the reports from all of you, we are not alone in having hot, dry weather.

Kennie Lyn, I heard about the fires on the news. How sad. Be safe. Keep us posted. We had rain again today.

Thanks Marly, this is our fire season. In the irrigated valleys it isn't a problem, but the rest of us are just paranoid about fire. But it will be over in a month of so. The big forest fires usually burn until it snows. The firefighters just try to keep them headed away from civilization. A neighbor who had been raised in tornado country said she would take tornados over fires any day, I think I would just as soon have the fires. I guess it is all in what you are used to.
It is hot again today, and still smokey.

Hi Kennie Lyn: I know what your friend means. Here in Louisiana, we have to be on guard from June 1, to the very end of November, for hurricanes. At least we have time to get out and go to higher grounds. There's always something threatening where ever one is. It is all still scary. I'll be praying for y'all.
Well, we got more rain today. As I type, I hear more thunder. The temperature has been in the high 70s and low 80s. The cooler weather is nice.

Ladies, I miss spoke....it was 116 in my neighborhood yesterday. I am afraid to check the temp today. Yesterday, I lost the last of my tomatoes and squash plants, just too darn hot. I even put up shade for them to no avail. Ladies, try to stay cool and safe.

Best always

Kim

Well, it's official--July was the hottest month ever on record, surpassing July of 1936. And the drought has affected more of the country than ever before. Say what you will about climate change, but it's come to the United States.

No rain today. Joan, we loss all of our tomato plants because on constant rain. They all drowned. I hope you are able to save your tomato plants.

Well, it was suppose to rain, and I was praying it was going to. But it turned out to be a pretty nice day. So I had to rake, rake, rake, and rake some more! Still not done.

The rain stayed away from SW Louisiana, again. I mowed the back yard, picked up branches, etc... Beautiful day, and temps were in the high 70s. Nice!

It is hot here again, not quite 100, but close. Yesterday we had a thunder storm pass by in the morning, I only heard one clap of thunder, but a fire started about 3 miles north along the ridge from us. The local fire fighters, with help from a BLM cat put it out before dark. Our firefighters are stretched pretty thin. It has been a long summer. Marly, do you often have that much rain in summer?

Not usually, Kennie Lyn. This has been a rainy summer for us. A couple of years ago, the grass in the yard was burnt because of no rain. With all this rain, the grass now is thick and green. This time of year, I like to keep the grass mowed because of Hurricane season. If we get a hurricane coming in with all the rain it brings, it'll be days before I get to mow.
Today, the temps are in the 80s. And- the sun is out. I'll be in the yard playing.

Marly, We get very little rain in the summer months. And if we do it is with a thunder storm, usually not much rain. An inch of rain in a 24 hour period would wash us all away. Weather is so interesting. Our country is so big and with many different weather patterns. I always enjoy reading about everyones weather.
It is supposed to be in the mid 90's today, and dry, and it is smokey again, because we haven't had much wind.
