Its definitely not hot here in Georgia today. My forecast says its raining and 74 degrees Wind 6 mph. It rains here every day. Every afternoon. Everything has stayed soggy and flooded. When they say scattered thunderstorms, we always manage to get them. Not complaining, just like to have some sunny days too. The rain makes me sleepy, I just had to take a nap this afternoon. I am glad its not in the 90's, but if I could live on a farm, I would take any weather!

it is HOT here..But if you lived on a farm you would look for a place to plug an airconditioner.The farmers now have AC in their tractors.

It is SO hot here they are making fireworks outta sunbeams!! THEY COULD!! i do not live on a farm but have a nice little garden for my kids and I that yields enough for canning and great spaghetti sauces. We are watering 2 to 3 times daily here..our lakes and ponds seem to be drying up a great deal..Hoping that we would have a storm last nite after our fireworks display but..altho it certainly cooled off..NO SUCH LUCK HERE IN NH!! Hope all is going well for everyone!!

Hey, it is pretty hot here in south east Mo.
Dave, we just came back from vacation this week. We went up to South Haven Michigan for a couple of days. Sure was nice. Weather was perfect, highs in the 70's. no humidity.

We went up through Illinois from St. Louis to Joliet on I55. And when we came back, we took I57 down to Effingham and then I70 back to St.Louis.

I think that most of the area in Illinois that we passed through was really nice. Miles and miles of large corn farms. I guess a lot of those farms have been in the same families for generations.

Stopped in the Arcola area to see some Amish stuff. Rockoma in particular. A little disappointed there. To many touristy things, crafts and trinkets. I guess we expected something different.

Anyway, I would move to central Illinois in a heartbeat if I could get one of them big farms.

We live in MI. Hot is about 90-95F for us.

Whats is really hot is Alabama at 95F & humidity is so bad, I would take a shower at lunch, heck with food. Too darn hot to eat!
