For the past couple of weeks it seems it's been in the upper 90's or low 100's. How 's it been in your area. Oh, BTW I'm in south central KS.

I live in west central Wisconsin (about 100 miles east of Minneapolis and St. Paul). The temperatures have been in the 90s here, too, for what seems like forever (actually only a couple of weeks). We haven't had any significant rain in about two months and everything is burning up or is already gone.

Our summer has been either very hot and humid or rain, rain, rain. We had a very long snowy winter last winter. My husband, daughter and I went to Ag Progress Days this past Thursday and it was so hot and humid we left early. Stange year. Last time like this, we ended up with two major snow storms, one early fall and one early spring. Both dumped 4 feet of snow each. Plus smaller storms over the winter. I'm hoping we don't run into that again. Right now we are in a nice time. Running 70 to 75 degrees during the day and 60 at night. Nice break!!!!!

Well the picture I posted is now obsolete. We had a little storm blow through with winds around 50+ MPH and it really did a number on one of our trees. I guess I'll get the chainsaw out after church tomorrow and do a little tree trimming. Oh well more fire wood for next year. Just heard on the TV that the winds at McConnell AFB were 122 MPH. My place is 3 miles east of the AFB. I don't think our winds were that high.

Hi Jerry, I'm in North East Kansas, and share your pain. The crops are gone, The temps. are terrible, and the farmers spirits are all but broke. If we don't get a high moisture winter, I just don't know what will take place next spring! Sad thing is, out east their in just as bad shape from too much rain. Sure hope it turns around soon. This makes two, and in some cases three years in a row of this here. Hang in there! Don

Same here, we had a fairly mild summer till 2 weeks ago. Been at or near 100 since and while surrounding areas have gotten rain, we have not. I last mowed my lawn 3rd weekend of July. It's just brown and dying.Weatherman said relief coming this weekend but changed it tonight to more of the same.

In the 80s here in MI during the day & mid 50s to low 60s at night.

Hot and dry here in IL too, my yard looks about like yours. I'm praying for rain for all of us, and soon.

Very wet here. Temps in 90's and so is humidity. I HAVE to cut grass at least once per week. Would love to share some of this rain (and mosquitos) with you folks.
