Oh, you are the lucky one with those temperatures. We've cooled some, mostly because of cloudiness. We've gotten a few sprinkles, but no real rain to speak of. Still, it's much better than it's been

The big excitement here is that the baby lizards have appeared. I didn't know how big they'd be when I first saw them - most are between 2-4". I think they're mostly anoles, but whatever they are, they're darned cute. There are some baby swallows out and about now, too. I need to remember to take my camera to work tomorrow and get some pics - a bunch are perching on top of the mast on the boat I'm working on.

Good evening Tony. Send some of those cooler temps here, we are slowing roasting in these parts. Too hot, too humid for us. When you get a humidex/heat ratio of 113, you know its time to find a cooler place to hide out. Thank goodness for central AC.

Take care and have a great weekend.

Good Morning, Tony!

Seems we're in for an even more intensely hot and humid one today, as our temps are expected to rise to 100F with heat indices near or at 109F in some places! Ouch! Hope that tomorrow's dip in the cooling jet stream (that seems to have been vacationing mostly along Canadian border) will safely return here bringing us relief! Unfortunately, strong severe weather could be accompanying tomorrow's cold front, so warnings are alread issued! What a challenging summer!

Hubby and I plan on remaining inside our air-conditioned home most of the day through tomorrow and rush out at dusk for convenient take-out meals. It's been way too hot, these past few days, to do any full grocery shopping (interiors of parked cars are reaching well over 120F plus degrees) and we don't have the desire to heat up our kitchen stove or microwave right now. We look forward to Sunday when cooler drier air finally arrives, lasts throughout much of the week and allows us to comfortably resume outside chores.

Ironically, we've been notified by our City that local Department of Public Works workers plan on doing overnight repairs to our street's water pipes all next week. Naturally, this requires that our water be turned off between the hours of 9:00 pm and 5:00 am throughout! Yup, welcome to "Little House on the Prairie", where for one full week our bathroom becomes an overnight outhouse ... hope you get the gist and not the drift of this pending saga. Argh! LOL!!!

Hi Tony!

I have to agree with GardenGrrl on your posted story. Glad to learn that your once very down-in-the luck friend/colleague managed to overcome his sorrows, turn his life around and come out on top in the end! We need far more happier endings these days!

I assume your youngest daughter must be enjoying the fact that she now has the downstairs remodeled bathroom mostly to herself? LOL! That's quite a gift to any teen!

If your current temps and dewpoints are accurate right now, I'd gladly swap places with you or any Canadian experiencing cool (74.1F) dry air (59.6F)! We remain contained in an on-going sweatshop down here, where temps and heat indices could reach near or above (100F plus) along with rises to already oppressive dewpoints! Saturday afternoon, a big dip in the jet stream should bring us a most welcomed cold front but also the potential for very severe weather to develop while it pushes on through. Hope that all storm warned areas in and around the Northeast remain safe from further damage, as many regions have already been hard hit as a result of recent severe flooding and storms.

What don't kill us, just makes us stronger, Tony! Your former coworker was able to tough it out, and ride the storm, and we can all be inspired by that! Glad he's doing better!

Hope you're able to dodge the raindrops if you're out!
