This was our weather forecast at lunchtime today, well actually this is for Oklahoma City.
We are always a couple of degrees warmer out in the west, so that would be a minimum of 102F (38.8C) everyday if it was specifically for us. The Hubster told me at noon it is supposed to get to 108F (42.2C) here tomorrow, so we plan on staying indoors. We have been around these temp's daily now for about 2 weeks and it's getting old in a hurry.
This is our state drought map as of today, we have been in the 'exceptional' area all year so far. In fact we are beginning to feel like we are becoming more of a desert area, certainly I am bearing that in mind when I select new plants. I'm about to turn one of my beds that really tends to bake into a cactus bed, after having alot of success with one I planted last year.
You know it's bad when we all run out in the street to stand in any rain we rarely get here. That's just what we and the neighbours did last weekend when we got 10 minutes of rain. At the time I thought how crazy my friends in rainy old England would think we were.
We'd love it if someone could turn the air conditioning on over Okieland please.
