There is even a shortage of HAY here in South Dakota. A lot of ranchers are selling their herds because there is nothing to feed them.

Speaking of cattle, have you ever noticed how the young calves run and bounce around with their tails straight out, and they seem so happy? That's because they are born in the spring when the weather is nice. Then comes summer and this unbearable heat, not to mention the hailstorms. And of course in winter there is the terrible snow with winds so strong it blows the snow up their noses and often they suffocate.

That is why grown cattle no longer scamper around. They just stand there like, well like cows, thinking, "This is NOT what was promised!"

Supposed to get up to 110 for the next couple of days here. We don't have the humidity some of you folks get, but at 110, even dry is uncomfortable.

No, it's North Dakota that has that rule - South can have whatever it wants to. Besides, the rules have all changed :P

Well change them back!! :lol:

Actually, during the (last) drought years I remember a day in 2007 when it got up to 116! That was the year when my precious little town almost burned to the ground. :(

Flat out sweating, Shroom. We lost power for a while and the house got hot. Thankfully it's back on now and cooling down :)

Was just thinking how growing up we didn't have air conditioning and did just fine.....

OK, if they can change the rules on how hot it gets, they can change the rules about "glowing". So in a spirit of fairness, I now pronounce it legal for all of us ladies to sweat our tails off!!

Same here, Patti. Growing up in Boston.

No AC. Never heard of it.

We were lucky to have fans. :lol: which only "pushed" the hot air around.

Rode the subway at an early age and went to the beach to "cool off". Or ...the firemen opened the hydrants.

"hot town, summer in the city......."

I know that you know that song.

Big fat storms rolled through here, dumped buckets in one hour, rolled out and left it cooler. Whew! Our landscaping on the house was finally getting done and I was WORRIED about those guys!

I live around Chattanooga, TN and although recently we have finally been getting consistent rain, it is still mid nineties and humid! To me it is worse to breathe that steamy air than dry air. Suffocation! Ahhh!

Good news is, the onion grass in the back yard is already boiled and ready to eat ;)

Just got a down poor . . . not near enough to solve our drought issues . . . but you should have seen us all run to the windows like we've never seen rain before.

What IS this wet stuff falling from the sky?
