Don't come looking for me! LoL

I am not lost. Nor have I forgotten you!
The heat index here today was 107. Some places in Iowa was up to 121. YIKES!
It is just TOO HOT to be out. Nothing good could com eof being out, or digging in this weather. Dead plants, or dead me.
So, when this heatwave breaks, I will be out digging away.
Just don't think that I have forgotten you! I haven't :-)

Staying under the A/C until further notice.

We had thunderstorms roll through last night and it dropped 20 degrees. So we are now in a cold front today....86 degrees. And the thunderstorms went all the way around us, so still no real rain in over a month.

Hi Tina, hang in there. When is the heat supposed to break? We are down to 80-85 today. Much nicer than the 98 deg we had yesterday.

Stay cool

Down here in the south, we don't get a break til late Sept. The trick is to get out there early in the morning. I'm often in my garden by 6:30 or 7 a.m. and work till about 1 or 2 p.m. When you get out early, you acclimate to the temp as it rises. Our actual temps are over 100 during July and August, with a heat index that can be 115. My yard is full sun, so it's HOT and no where to hide.

Dusty, I do have the AC going full blast, and boy is it a shock when I come in from outside, especially since my clothes are drenched. That cold air and these wet clothes can sure cool you down fast. Come on over!

I have a friend in CA who gets hotter than I do. She works under a sprinkler all day to combat the heat. Have y'all tried that? I'm thinking I might. My clothes get drenched anyway.

Did you cool down Tina? It's not as hot here now... it's the humidity that won't let up! August is going to be horrid!

NancyAnn, My Aunt lives where it gets hot hot.. the last time I was at her house... years ago mind you, she had a hose wrapping around the top of her deck.. like a soaker hose but I think the holes were smaller... anyhow... she left that on during the day and the misting was sure nice in that heat!

Maureen, I love the picture you have with your name on it... very beautiful!!

Heat and more heat here also! Is everyone staying cool? At least for the moment, the humidity is down so it makes the heat a lil more tolerable! I'm working on a wedding for tomm.. and it's going to be outdoors! Oh my!!

Tina, did you ever get any tornadoes? Luckily we get very very few here.

Stay cool everyone and have a great weekend!!

Tina,

Hope you have gotten everything worked out with all your traders. Now that it is September , almost October, the heat shouldn' be bothering you too much.
