I'll try & get some pics of the corn. I started to the other day, but I just hate to post them & have to look at the pics. I have not been looking at the corn every day, as it can get depressing. there are areas of decent corn, just not enough. From a 1/4 mile away, I can see the ground between the rows.....not good!

We have a chance all the way into Monday. And it is coming from the East. That is usually a sign of heavy rainfall around here. Don't need it Monday morning, have to haul sheet rock to the job.

Take it while you can get it Kenny! That's what they make plastic sheeting for!

It's 103 now, heading to a record tying 107. My day off, & got to town early to beat the heat. I'll be in the house all the rest of the day under AC. Well, just before dusk I may go pick some sweet corn before the raccoons do.

I looked outside about 45 minutes ago, I didn't look at the weather but I knew it was going to rain so I went outside to pick up a few things. It was not 5 minutes and I was done picking up, them it started to rain. It's not a heavy rain but it is still coming down!

My aunt has problems with water all the time. They built their house a few years ago and it is a nice house, and great surroundings. (What I would consider great surroundings, anyway) But when they drilled the well they did not find a good water vein. They went extra far down trying to find something but they didn't find much. They still have problems with it and it makes it very hard to do much of anything.

105 here at 3 pm, probably go up at least 2 more degrees! Watered stuff all morning, then spent some time in the shop building a new "two-ear" squirrel feeder (the old one was rotted out). By 3 this afternoon it was up to 95 in the shop with the air on, time for me, Chief & Dottie to come in.

We have hot water heat, so no "central" air, just two window units. This Summer the one in the bedroom (on the west) just can't keep up. It's been 80* (head high) in there at bedtime, 10 o'clock. It does cool quite a bit by morning though! I had to cut the Pecan tree that shaded that window a couple of years ago, so I put a shade cloth over the window with the air conditioner. It helps, but the new tree will be better in a few years. ~~ Lowell

105 & climbing here, but my sender is on the front porch, so it elevates the temp, but this is pretty much what the heat index is:DSC00114.JPG

its about 102* here, hopefully the last day of this heat. Something bad going to happen tonite as the temp for tomorrow is only to be 84. Probally a big storm with no rain again. On the good part we managed to grow several pints of peas, and i picked the first tomato on the 4th of july. I quess we can grow something without normal rain and just irigation.

We have some small rain cells just north of us now (maybe 10 miles), but probably won't amount to much! Topped out at 108* today, don't remember it ever being that hot around here in y 61 years! ~~ Lowell
