Surely sleeping under the stars when it's 10 degrees out would cool you off :)



I love winter!!

Oh, here, too!
106 today in the shade with 70+ % humidity. Don't know what the heat factor was. Been like this for several days. Played in the sprinkler with my horse several times today... makes us both feel better. :) But the goats act like water (even rain) is acid so no joy for them... poor goatios. :(

And the high here today was 65 - and it rained. Both of these are incredibly unusual. I'm not complaining though!

Yup, it's HOT in NC Arkansas. Crooked Creek is dry as a bone and the Buffalo National River is just a trickle. We barely hit 95 the last few summers here in the Ozarks. Guess we're paying for it now!

hot here too. only got up to 95 yesterday and that felt good!The last week has been miserable. Heat indices over 105 no breeze and humidity of 80% plus. ICK At least we have had rain (although that makes the humididty worse) Breaking records since the 1940's.I knew we would pay for that cool spring.

I log the daily temps in my calendar book(s)... and I show about 2 wks of 100+ last July here in Stone County. We thought we were gonna get lucky this summer... last month was in mid/upper 80s and we had a rain about every week. Then come the first of Aug... WHAM! Well, the good stuff couldn't last forever, could it? We did get two good cuts of hay this year. Much better hay year than last year!

40 F here this morning. Soon it will look like this again:




Just looking at these makes me shiver! Maybe it'll help you poor souls suffering in the heat. Then you can post pictures of warm things for us northerners in January and February!

Our forecast this week is just a word and a number:

sunny, 100

REALLY hard for the local weatherfolks to stretch that into a whole segment.

My house's a/c is running constantly in the afternoons, even with the thermostat set up to 76. WARNING: Big bill ahead! I am thankful to have the a/c, though. I'm fine when awake in hot temps, but I cannot sleep in it at all.
