As you're all aware we've had a really hot and dry summer here in Texas. Tomorrow we'll tie the record set in 1925 for 100 degree or better days for the summer.

The heat will continue throughout this week.

Most of the state in in "Exceptional" drought conditions.

In central Illinois, it's nowhere near as bad as in Texas. Today we got .91 of rain, that's the most we've had since early July.:blush2:

Wishing it would rain for you guys hasn't done it. I do have an idea... If you hold a tractor show, maybe it will rain... Seems to work up here almost every time. The more effort you put into it, the harder it seems to rain.

Hope you see relief soon.

Hang in there. Relief is on it's way. I can't imagine that kind of consistent heat.
Some leaves are starting to turn colours up here.
And the darn bears are getting hungry too. Heard one growl at me through the bush yesterday.
It's been dry here too, and the natural berry crop is all dried up. The bears need that to fatten
up for the winter.
The Ministry of Natural resources is predicting a 300% increase in bear/human insidences this fall.
Not sure how they arrive at that #, but it'll be interesting.

I for one, am ready for some relief. I'm tired of doing fabricating work in our shop in this heat.
