Nearly 8 pm and still at 101.
I just came in from watering pots; watered myself too.

Y'all take care out there, no matter what's happening in your part of the world.

I am NOT, NOT! going to gloat about our current temperatures. Or complain about the rain. Our turn will come in time. But oh my, how awful for you! I think our little corner of the PNW is the only place in the country that isn't frying! You take good care of yourself in this horrible weather! (I'd suggest hopping a plane for the NW corners, but by the time you got here, it would probably be hot here too! Rolling my eyes. )
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Ethan just dowsed me with the water hose a few times when we were watering.
I think I might survive the night.

Thanks woof, you can gloat.

Don't think it was really invited.
But now that it's here, we are just going to have to make do.
I've been outside already, and it's now pushing 94. Just before daylight I checked and it was 88, so it didn't cool down much.

More of the same forecast for the week with the possibility of showers on Thursday.
I hope it's more than a possibility.
