Just saw Tom Johnson's post on Facebook that the predicted temperature in Salem, Oregon on Sunday is 115 degrees! Blinking Blinking Brutal! I hope it cools off there next week - I expect that he has to start digging and shipping soon.

Lucy ~ It is 8:15 PM and it is 85° now. Also, very sticky. Sticking tongue out I had to come inside.

Are your relatives still with you?

Please take care! Group hug

It is not quite as hot here, but for Denmark it is plenty hot! Haven't had a drop of rain in weeks and this is the 3rd year of drought or drought-like conditions. Lots and lots of watering going on here. Sighing!
Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice!

It's beautiful! We had snow showers yesterday but it didn't stick on the ground. Nice and cold though. We have 30's at night.

It's good that we are getting rain and snow after such a prolonged period of drought. I just hope no one experiences flooding or mud sliding.

That snowy landscape is lovely, Evelyn.

We are getting rain, lots of lovely rain. Hurray! A freeze is predicted for next weekend. I have one
very confused iris which has put up a budstalk (extremely uncommon, but not unknown
for this time of year here.) I plan to put a sock over the bud to protect it - I really don't want it to freeze.
The rain has been spaced out nicely, a half inch or so a day and the yard is draining well - no standing
puddles. Smiling

I think that is the problem that Rob was having. With clay soil and inadequate drainage, he was getting a lot of rot.

….The Central Sierra Snow Laboratory set a new December record with just over 200 inches of snow through Tuesday morning. This is the most extreme December snowfall on record in California, topping a 185-inch December snowfall near Donner Pass in December 1889, according to weather historian Christopher Burt. ….
