---- so far. NOAA is forecasting 39*F for us tonite. Had a very light frost touch the beans about a week ago. Hooked the garden sprinkler up so I can turn it on in the early AM if needed.

We are near 90* by day and only down to 75* at night. Dew point is 75* so it is miserable. We are in a moderate drought with storms going to the north or south of us. I catch the airconditioner condensation to water the plants. Good Luck, Rick

hotter than Hades here with rain tonight and a cool down for the weekend.   We've been cutting the humidity with a knife since June 1st.   Hard for old, fat, outta shape people like me to breathe

Got a much needed rain last night, 1/2", and drizzle today, only+19C. by this afternoon, and down to +10C now. The black poplar leaves are starting to look tired and the crows are gathering with the extended families......I hate to say it, but fall is coming. The hummingbird chicks are at the feeders and by this time next month they'll be gone south. We still have hot weather left to come, but summer is definitely on the way out.

The heat and humidity is terrible here. Today is my first day off in two weeks and the heat and humidity will be sticking around over the weekend. It's no fun working on tractor projects in this crap, so I haven't been able to get much done on the PK project. At least I've managed to locate some more needed parts, so most of the leg work is done. I'm sure this weather will lift soon and I'll be getting back to it.

Wow frost already. I'm almost ready for it. Mid 90's high humidity & just a few quick showers to make it more miserable here in Kentucky. We need some good rain. Lots of rain north & south of us. I had to make a water run for the cistern on Tuesday. I didn't have to get water until October last year.

Been hot and humid since probably half way through June, past 3 days it's been raining steady...

Fall is certainly coming. Just means chicken (partridge/ruffed grouse) season!!!
