Kenny , I'm never going to complain how hot it is in the shade here in Pa after seeing your temperatures !!!!


And I'm not in Texas. Not sure if my thermometers would go that high.:rolling:

I just broke 1900 posts. Wow! That's almost 500 a month.

There is a tropical disturbance out in the gulf so I bought me a new rain gauge today just in case we finally get some rain. Judging from what we've had in the last 10 months this should work.

Ronnie, one of those may be just the ticket for here. Had lots of rain around, but none to speak of on my little plot.

Dad got 3 tenths in early am, but I got zip 2 miles from him. Freaking miserably hot/humid, and time to spend 3 hours in my sauna...I mean milk parlor. I am off tomorrow though!

I went to unlock my back gate this morning and found a crack in the ground so wide that I was able to pull the pipe out of the ground for the latches. This is a 2" piece of pipe about 12" long. One gate post would move about 6" back and forth due to the crack. We need some rain!!!!

Kenny that is dry!! We just had a thunder storm here and at least an inch of rain in about an hour. It has been an average summer here so far for rain but spring was extremely wet and cold. I hope you guys get some relief soon. I wouldn't want you to loose your Ford down one of those cracks!:bounce:

Here's some pics of the mini-earthquake. The pipe leaning against the fence is the one I pulled out of the crack with my hand, only twisting slightly.

WOW, that IS DRY! I'm not so dry as just so hot it's dragging me down. Supposed to break a heat record Tuesday here.

Thanks for posting the picture of the "Texas Rain Gauge", tinner. I needed a good laugh!!!

If I put one out, here, it would probably get filled up just from the humidity!

Just watched the weather & said 107 in Tulsa at that moment, but I know what you mean, as my front porch is always hotter on the thermometer than what the weatherman says. 103 here on my porch.

There are two things that I've always liked about hot weather:
First .. it brings out the halter tops and short shorts.
Second .. it's weather that you don't have to shovel ( I hate shoveling weather ).

Ray, the halter tops & short shorts aren't always a blessing. You know what I mean I'm sure. For some women it should be illegal to wear them. I would google pics, but this is a family oriented forum! LOL (please, nobody get any ideas)
As to shoveling snow......I'd love to right about now!
