Dry as Bones

It's dry as bones around here, as dry as it's been since the 80's according to the radio.  We're struggling to keep everything watered, but there are so many areas.  I can't image what the electric bill (for the well pump) will be.  There's no rain in sight and temperatures are predicted to soar.

Thursday 108
Friday 108
Saturday 106

No one will be pushing up daisies in my garden, there won't be a daisy left!

At least I'll be cool driving to and from work.   No?
Oh yeah, I forgot- no airconditioning in the car!
A friend asked me what I will do.  Get hot, what else?  Oh well, it's only an hour drive!
My husband offered to drive me the next couple of days but I'll choose hot.  That's four hours a day in traffic and using (yipes) Diesel Fuel $$$

Please send rain.  
About two or three full days of a light, gentle rain.
Oh, and while you're at it, send a pool too, for when the rain stops.
And a snowcone machine- Oh how I love snow cones, especially those Italian ices.

If only I could send you all the rain we have just had in the last two hours, after an horrendous thunderstorm here!!!!! Treacle and I were just going to hide under the covers it was so bad, it was as black as night and the rain! Susie x

Even though I live in the desert, anything over 105 is just too hot--even with low humidity (and I imagine your humidity is higher than ours). I hope your temps cool down soon!

Where do you live that it stormed so badly?

The humidity surprisingly has not been bad the past couple of weeks in St. Louis. It's kind of shocking really. Actually, the humidity has not been too bad all year at this point. Seems really strange too. We're used to having it be very humid nearly every day in past years as soon as May hits.

South Carolina is the same way.
Be safe...I feel for ya with the long drive/no air. =(
I've had to water the garden a lot, and my cucumber plants are still looking brown, wilty and sad!

Our house is creaking and cracking- is will do that during the season changes but it's much too dry now. Today, as hot as it was, it felt more like when I was in Vegas. You can feel the heat laying on you but it's not that suffocating heat that we tend to get here (STL) with high humidity, even when the temps are 80-90s.

NOW I get it! I was wondering why the hell those bones were all neatly arranged in the garden. I figured some sort of tiny, little pagans were carrying on some sort of ritual in the dark of the night, sacrificing aphids to the tomato gods or something.

But it was just my wife...

I'm going to have to start watching her a bit more closely it seems.
