Re: Rain... again


We are at 90, with what the weather channel claims is 70% humidity,  
but it feels like a sauna outside. Sure wish I had a weather station  
that measures outside humidity! The next 3 days are going to be HELL,  
with predicted temps pushing 100... but at least we got .7 inch of  
rain. Must be grateful for any blessings.
