I'll pray, but the long-range forecast is for above-average heat extending through October in the midwest.

The heat is the same here...I feel like I'm living underground. It's too hot to quilt because I can't stand having the iron on. It's always hot this time of year but we usually get some showers in the afternoon to cool thing off but no showers for days. I watered my plants on the porches this morning and hope I'll make it rain.

Is that like washing your car which guarantees rain?

I was thinking the same thing, MNnancy! Great minds or are we just two halves of the same nut? LOL!

The LQS has a window A/C unit and fans and it was still pretty unbearable last night. When I left work, I just opened the sunroof and all of the windows for my 30 minute drive to the LQS since I knew the A/C would be miserable and I'll tell you, it was getting difficult to breathe by the time I got there! The air was just so "heavy"! I was really thankful to get home last night.

Thought you all might be interested in this graph from NOAA.  Through July, the average temperature for the Contiguous  U.S. has been the hottest on record since 1895.  Take a look:  http://www1.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/data/cmb/images/us/2012/jul/YTD_allyears_Jul2012.png

(Note, you can click on the graph to enlarge so it is more readable.) 

Most of you probably do not need a graph to tell you that...LOL!

...and then August rolled in bringing cooler temps and much lower humidity.  Life is glorious in Minnesota!

We are just warming up here!  July was still on the cool side for us, but we have been in the 90's for most of August.  Not as hot as the mid-west, but warm enough to rippen the tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers and getting the corn to grow super-fast.

We didn't get any tomatoes...the plants just burnt up.  Very few cucumbers and the corn fields here look just pitiful.   Not much in the gardens at all.

Not much for veggies here either.  We had plenty of rain, but July was very hot and humid, and they say the flowers won't pollinate in those extremes.
