Today will mark a new page in the record books as being the hottest summer in history for these parts.
1980 made history when it had sixty nine days over 100 degrees. Yesterday we tied the thirty one year old record and today we will surpass it topping out at 105.
Though the cool fronts are coming more frequently, the temperatures climb right back up only after a couple of days giving you a false hope of cooler weather. It is nice to at least have a day or two during the week to get out and get some chores done.
I watched the news last night and they were talking about a freeze warning already in some of the mid Northern states. I am not ready for weather like that yet. I need a fall that lasts for at least three months so the late gardens I planted can have a chance to grow and produce. I also have a million things that were put off during the summer due to the heat that need to be done before winter.
The wife turns 40 at the end of the month and she is not looking forward to it. I had planned to throw her this huge event, but being an event of any size would cost a considerable amount of money that we don't have, I am at a loss. Normally a birthday would not be a big deal, but being 40 is an achievement and a mile stone going from young to old, life to death, over the hill, from girl to granny...., you get the hint. (I bet that made some of y'all mad). Anyway, if you have an idea that will work on a chepo budget, please let me know.
Have a great day.
