Re: weather

Donna, heard the other day that some place in Iowa had higher temps and heat 
index than we did.  We haven't hit 100 degrees yet, but the heat index has.  
Been blessed with afternoon short showers, so haven't had to water.  
You are right, it is uncomfortable.  We can stand it more, probably, since 
we've been more or less eased into it gradually...so are used to it.  And 
because we usually have finished our  major "gardening" in the past 3 months, and 
can now just spend time outside in the morning and evening enjoying it, and 
inside during the heat of the day.  We have three or so more months of all day 
gardening weather  to look forward to in the fall.    If it weren't for those 
"comfortable" 6 months, I don't think we could take the heat in the summer or the 
cold in the winter either.  This gives us some down time, and something to 
look forward to.
