End of July
The issue now is to keep everything from drying out. Yesterday, we tied the record for the most consecutive days with the temperature of 90 degrees. The record was eighteen days set back in 1901. Today we should break the record. The outlook for the next several days is for the temperature to exceed 100 degrees. Along with the heat, precipitation for the year is six and a half inches below normal.
Because of the hot temperatures, some exotic trees are starting to show up. Granted the trunk is metal and the leaves are made of plastic but it just might be a sign of things to come.
Many people are complaining about the heat. During these hot and dry times, it is important to remember, you don’t have to shovel hot, like we did the snow earlier in the year.
