It's Just Too Hot


It's just too hot.  I don't like the heat, never have;  we are not used to 93-95 degree days here. It's been going on for over a week now.  I don't go outside unless I have to.  It's too much like winter, being caged up inside like this. 
I water the planter flowers in the morning and hope they don't fry before the sun dips below the horizon.  We water the grass knowing it's a waste of energy  because any moisture we try to put into the earth will just evaporate before it has a chance to do its job. Soon our lovely green Michigan woods will become dry and brittle.
Call me a wimp!  I don't care.  I never worry about what people think of me, anyway.  Just give me back my 70 degree days so I can garden again.

Jane,
Usually what your getting temp wise is normal for us. Yesterday through Sunday is is or was going to be 100 degrees. Our ground is like a rock, we water what we can everyday.

I hear we may have rain coming. I am hoping for a nice big thunderstorm so things will cool down a bit. Gotta love Michigan!

Looking forward to rain. I guess they changed the forcast for the next few days, as usual! It's funny because the weather station in my sidebar says it's sunny and 70 degrees right now, but it's only 65 and it's overcast. Even the computer widget can't get it right. That's Western Michigan for you.

I guess I shouldn't complain about our cool rainy summer. I feel for you, having grown up in MN I know what the heat can do to you.

We had a few days like that here in Santa Barbara but now we are back to our usual foggy until 3 pm and then a few hours of sun. Hope your weather cools down soon!!!
