    It hit 100° today and it's going to be even hotter tomorrow and Saturday. Ugh. Needless to say, everything is parched.

    Did you get any more rain up your way, estreya?

    •  Revise that. (2+ / 0-)

      It hit 102° and it's still 100° at 6pm.

        ... when the night temperatures offer not even a hint of relief ...

        Here, i can smell autumn in the air.  Thankfully, it stormed last night, and there are, as i'm typing this, still pockets of heavy rain sharing a sunny sky.  This simultaneous mix of rain and sun is very characteristic of early autumn here, and i couldn't be more happy to see it.

        Heavy winds have blown all the petals off the roses, but ask me if i care?  I'm just so happy to have "real" water at last.  I checked the path to see if any trees came down, and so far, it's all good ...

        I admit, i have mixed feelings about the shifting of the season, mostly because i didn't get done what i hoped to achieve out there this year.  I'll do what i'm able in the time that remains, and with any luck (knock wood), there's always next year ... :)

        As for Project Runway, i can't guarantee i'll get to it tonight, but i shall try ... :)
