It was a hard decision to make but I have decided that I can cope with a heat wave better than I can cope with 2 feet of snow which is what mother nature blessed us with in February.
2 Feb 2011 my nephew’s house in Northern Illinois. Click to make larger.
I was out as soon as the places opened to pay my cable and utility bill this morning. Even at 9 AM the humidity was so high that it was a chore just to breathe. Right at this minute our heat index is 106 to climb as high as 115 by 4 PM. And the “excessive” heat warning as been extended now until 7 PM Saturday.
I skipped the grocery store, but I will probably go there very early tomorrow morning (7AM) as tomorrow is supposed to be the hottest day this week. We haven’t had but a trace of rain this month and the grass is turning brown. My poor old tomato plants are struggling. I have been lucky enough to get 4 ripe tomatoes so far. I had a bacon and tomato sandwich for lunch. YUMM!!!
STAY COOL !!
