It's a little warm around here these days. Yesterday the official temp was supposed to be 100 degrees. Well it made it... we went to buy groceries yesterday afternoon and our Blazer showed the temp outside at 107 when we left... by the time we got up the road a mile or so, it said 109. On the way back home, the thermometer outside the dentist's office said 108 and the one outside the vet's office said 110. At one point, the Blazer said 112. Whew! And this is only mid July. I surely do hope that this not an indicator of what it will be in August!
Although this is not the 17 year swarm of cicadas, they are surely singing for all their worth in our backyard this year. I took this picture on our front porch last year, but they are evidently muliplying plentifully this year also... grin
