is hanging on with a vengeance this year and doesn’t want to let go. Our predicted high for today is 100F actual degrees. This is the kind of day where I don’t like to go outside, and I probably won’t. Tomorrow is more of the same but by Monday the high is to be in the low 70s. The nice things about living in Illinois are the bitter cold snowy winters and the high heat and humidity. If you don’t like the weather one day, stick around because it is sure to change soon.
The Canadian geese which are thick here because of the Illinois River have started making a showing in my back yard. As the days go on the numbers will increase until there are dozens of them. They hang around until late October.They are pretty to look at but they are actually rather mean when you try to get close to them.
These pictures were taken yesterday morning. You can see how brown our grass is here. The total combined rainfall for July and August is less than 1 & 1/2 inches. Click on pics to make larger.
September is here. My favorite month of the year. I love Illinois for the changing seasons. I don’t like Illinois for the heat and the snow. But hey, I have lived here most of my life and I doubt that will change any time soon.
I hope you all have lots of plans for the Labor Day weekend. It is just another Monday holiday for me which I don’t like as it messes with my mind as Tuesday becomes Monday.
Whatever you do, stay safe and be happy!!
