When I looked at the weather forecast today, it said the high would be 95° F. (35° C.). I thought, “Wow! It’s going to be a lot cooler today!”
You know it’s been too hot for too long, when 95°F. sounds cool!
It’s probably cooler because last night it rained. Not just a little-bitty, very brief hardly-wetted-down-anything shower, which is all we’ve got for weeks and weeks, but an honest to goodness thunder storm that lasted for hours. Wooooowwwww…. there was actually 2 ½ inches of water in the rain gauge this morning!
The garden was actually wet without me having to water it!
The dirt in the flower gardens was actually damp!
The pond had more water in it, which was all stirred up from the rain!
There were actually still WET spots on the driveway and road at mid-morning!
There was even a puddle of water on a little table on the front porch!
Did you notice all the fallen, brown leaves in these pictures? That’s because of the drought, cause it certainly isn’t fall, and the weather certainly hasn’t been cool, let alone frosty!
Yes indeed, we sure could use some more of this change in weather.
More rain, and cooler temps please!
