*I just got this month's bill and it's up another 51%.
*Black-eyed peas,a few cantaloupe,and a few tomato have survived in gardens.The rest has been turned under.
*Clear Creek has shut off.Turtles and fish are trapped in pools of stagnating water of increasing temperature.
*No swimming for us.
*A lot of young trees didn't make it.Others are dropping leaves as if it were fall.
* You couldn't dig a hole even if your life depended upon it.
*I'm seeing people in parked cars,idling,with the AC on while I shop.When I leave the store,they're still in there.No telling how long those engines run.
*Oregon has wheat-field wildfires.That's a new one!
*Rattlesnakes in Arizona are taking refuge inside urban pool noodles.
*The heat dome is forecast to move by this coming Wednesday and we'll be looking at 97-degrees,a welcome development.
Happy happy joy joy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
