    Default Hot Enough For You?

    I was up at 4:30 AM, it was 67 degrees. At 9:00 AM it was 90. The forecast was for 117 today but this has been revised several times. The current forecast is for 109 today and 114 tomorrow, every "weather service" has a different forecast. Humidity is down in the 20s and I'm expecting heat lightening today or tomorrow :(

    114, on the way to 118.

    Hottest day of my life.
    I'm running the sprinklers (farm style, not with a hose) to keep my pet chicken's/turkeys and goats and sheep alive. They were panting at 8 am.

    Many here don't have air conditioning. We often don't need it. Didn't even break 100 last year. I didn't even pull the old window AC out of storage last year.
    Since last fall, we've had massive wildfires and smoke, with red skies and the worst air on the planet. Windstorms that's took power for days. A ice storm that took power for weeks for some.
    Now, the hottest days of my life.
    The year from Hell isn't over.
    What's next?
    Volcano or earthquake?

    Please, don't even mention volcanoes, I live 5 miles from one! Looks like it will hit 110 here and there is a fire nearby, probably The Dalles area

    It dropped to 97! Of course the wind is picking up. This is great firewood drying weather. I worry what this is doing to some of my crops. But what happens happens.

    The GF's garden has been brutalized, some plants are dead, she'll be getting-up at 4AM to water again. I shall be unloading a trailer of firewood, all the wood is bone dry.
