21 days...

of 100 degree plus weather where I live. It's not a record yet. Only the fifth longest recorded stretch.

But it probably explains the monster migraine that kept me from blogging today. :)

Back Monday!

Now we know for sure that global warming is a hoax!

(To be realistic though, the problem with solving a matter of science as a political issue is that when the temperature is over 100, almost everyone worries about global warming, but if we have a cold spell in May, almost everyone says its bunk.

Neither is a sound basis for long term policy.

Very cranky hot person here. I'm so sick of the heat.

I hear you, KC. I hear you.

I keep telling myself, "This is our winter. This is our winter. This is..."

But we had snow this past winter, so the mantra's not helping much. :)

Well, where I live we once had two weeks straight of 20 below zero weather. We also had a winter when it snowed Veterans day and there was snow on the ground without break until the end of April. That's winter.

That long winter a house I passed on my way to nursing school sported a snow sculpture of a picnic table, grill, food, people sitting and standing around the picnic table, all carefully colored with food coloring, green watermelon rind, red watermelon, and so on. Amazing. How I wish I had taken a picture of it.

How did you get that screenshot? I couldn't figure out how to do it. Below is what a copy paste of the weather here produced. It left out the headings, but it is the equivalent 7 day forecast for here. It did get to 100 one day last week, but it always cools off at least some at night.

As my father would have said, You pays your money and you takes your choice. Less money, to live here, but less work to be found, also.

By the way, sorry about the migraine. I hope it is over by the time you read this. Have you tried Imitrex? Maxalt? Topamax or Inderal for prevention?

You can use a screenshot program, such as PicPick (what I use). After the program is running, you just hit whatever button a screenshot is set to (I use Print screen), and it will take a snapshot of the screen. You can crop and then save the picture. Just using regular copy and paste doesn't work a lot of the time.

Hope it helps.

Well, the heatwave broke here, with three consecutive nights of 2"+ rain. The garden is mudfield. Hopefully, I can cut the grass tomorrow before the next cycle. It still beats shoveling snow, and it is beautiful outside.
