Hot Enough For You?

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?

ah, but we are not old, P---we're "prime". ;)

(truth be told, I still do not like a/c much)

The windows are wide open today.

After being oppressive for 3 days, it is actually nice today--82 degrees and perfect.

The grass, however, is nearly hopeless.

Now that sounds nice! Hoping to be able to open ours if this humidity lifts.

How hot is it? Hot enough that we are under "pre-evacuation notice". There is a huge fire six miles north of town and the wind is blowing south. We haven't been told to leave yet but they have told us to be packed and ready to go at a moment's notice. Got to go home and grab the cat and a few guitars and my "go bag". Then I'm coming back here to the shop where my computer is so I can keep up with the latest news. If you don't hear from me for a while it's because I had to leave.

We have the greatest firefighters and police so please don't worry about me. I know they will get us out of here before there is any danger. I guess I should take some food too because I won't be able to eat whatever they offer us at the college south of here, which is where they will probably tell us to go. But somehow that is the least of my worries right now.

Life is never boring when you live in the west I guess...

Wow . . . take care, Bartfull. Hope the fire is put out ASAP.

Makes me have to think about what I would take. It wouldn't hurt to actually have that kind of plan . . . you don't usually get a whole lot of time to think about it.

Pack well Barty!

My favorite neighbor,age 8, came over with her little fluffy dog. (Hub made a gate in the back fence). Our dogs were playing and we were hiding from the skeeters on my screened porch. We were remarking that it was odd that 90 felt nice.

    • So I'm new to all of this. I don't really have stomach issues other than occasional heartburn. Went to a gastro Dr and she took some blood samples. There's a test where the range is 0-19. I have no idea what it is called but mine was 62. She recommended an endoscopy and my anxiety has completely taken over. I'm terrified. I know nothing about this other than what came up when I googled celiac. What came up was a lot of scary this is what can happen to you results. I'm beyond afraid and do t know what to do. Reaching out for help. 
    • You have multiple problems, and may have several different diagnoses. I needed sinus surgery, and was referred to a teaching hospital University of Iowa. I had to jump through all of the surgeon's hoops by seeing specialists in other related departments. He told me, "Sometimes we think we are allergic to foods and we are not."  After being tested negative for those offensive foods, I figured out that I have histamine sensitivity to these foods. An appointment with the specialist in the Allergy and Immunology Dept confirmed it. I was told to eat a low histamine diet, and to avoid those foods that had been offensive, to keep a  food diary, and occasionally to challenge myself with a food I had not been able to eat. My father was diagnosed celiac from an intestinal biopsy. I had stopped eating wheat and oats, because they made me itch, etc. Other offensive foods to me are tomatoes, raspberries, strawberries, egg, banana, cantaloupe, mushroom, canned or not fresh fish. I have read to eat fresh food. Avoid bruised fruit. Even aged meat contains histamine. There are foods that contain histamine and foods that cause the release of histamine. No leftovers better. I don't eat dairy, because I have a reaction to yogurt. Any foods that are fermented contain histamine. Apples make me cough. It isn't fun eating this way, but until a solution is discovered, I must follow this low histamine diet. I am keeping a food diary. Vary your diet. Be positive. Be proactive. By the way, an oral histamine doesn't help. I don't know what does, but I take one capsule of Diamine oxidase (DAO) before eating, to tie up the histamine before it reaches my gut. You may want to read up on histamine sensitivity and a low histamine diet. Please ask for a referral to a large teaching hospital specialist. May I suggest you begin with Endocrinology Dept. They  will refer you to their other specialists concerning your symptoms. However, you will have your endocrinologist as your home specialist. He will coordinate your care. 
    • Thanks for the welcome. Endoscopy results came in the morning confirming Celiac, but they also found cells called Eosinophils which apparently has something to do with white blood cells. They want to do another scope in 8 weeks to see if they're still there.
    • Oh. Please get a referral to a large teaching hospital. The specialists there will give you answers.  Take care.
