I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific. – Lily Tomlin


I’m not sure what the offical high is going to be today, but it’s HOT up in here!!! It’s even to hot to get in the swimming pool. I took my trash out this morning around 8:15am. The neighbors were harvesting some corn for their cows so I went over to say hello. I was only outside for a few minutes, but by the time I got back to the house, I was sweating! And it was 8 o’clock in the morning!!! They had to move their calves to the barn so they could try to keep them as cool as possible and they did that at 5 in the morning because it was just to darn hot to do it any other time.

I added a weather sticker to the blog. It updates every ten minutes or so. Check it out. You can visit their weather page at http://www.wunderground.com. Just type in your zip, search, and there’s your weather.

Again, I’m worried about the kids on the bus. Not only my kids, but all the kids. The local tv station is now predicting a high of 101 degrees on Thursday. That’s without a heat index. I thought I lived in the “heartland” not the “desert Southwest”. We’ve only been able to get half of our yard mowed and now I think that it might have been a bad idea to mow what we did get mowed. If we don’t get some rain soon, the grass will get really burnt.
