Gettin' Ugly

My attitude it getting as bad as the weather lately.  So far for this month of August there were 11 out of 13 days over 100 degrees, way over, the weather was supposed to cool down after Sunday.  Now looking at the 7 day forecasts all are over 100, with today being  109, cooler than yesterday's 110.  Keep waiting for the next 7 day forecast to see something less than 100 but no they just keep adding another one.  So far this summer there have been over 30 days of 100+.  Poor sheep even tho they have shade, and I fill water troughs twice a day with cold water they still walk around with their mouths open and panting.  




I am so ready to see snow on those mountains.

  1. I know, I know.
    This is too long a stretch for hot weather. It zaps all the strength I have. Between the heat and the smoke from the many fires around us, I can hardly go outside accept for very early in the morning.
    Take care. it's got to come to an end soon.
    Think about *Autumn*, with its chill in the air.

  3. I can't even imagine. We think here (upstate NY) that the 90s for ten days in a row is hellish. Given my discovery that taking one of my vacation days brings on the rain - I will dedicate most of my remaining VDs to you...

  4. Yeah, that sucks. We've managed to stay below 100 for two or three weeks now. It was rough for a while.

  6. Hang in there! It's GOT to change for you soon, right? We're still getting days in the 80s (which I know would be heaven for you) here in northern Minnesota but our night time temps have now dropped to the high 50s and low 60s which makes sleeping at night great.

    Hoping rain and cooler temperatures come your way soon!

  7. Thanks for sharing such a gorgeous photo in spite of your misery. I'm leaving town just as our next bout of triple digits hit - to go to Ft. Worth where it will probably be as hot or hotter, and MUCH more humid.... :-/
