HAZY, HOT and HUMID. That sums up our weather. But I'm NOT going to complain! We ended up getting about 0.75 inches of much needed rain last night. We had no major damage from the winds that have plagued so many other areas. We have power and air conditioning in this awful weather. So, I am grateful.
We still, however, could use some more rain. This rain brings us to approximately an inch of rain for the entire month of June. We average about 4.5 inches for the month so you can see how dry it has been. Hopefully the weather pattern has shifted a bit and the storm tracks will normalize a bit.
Three tomato plants were blown over but only one sustained any real damage and that's only a few broken branches, nothing major. The peppers looked pretty windblown last evening but seem to have righted themselves today. Of course, now the weeds that were already out there seem to have exploded- as has the lawn.
Work today wasn't too bad and now I've got 4 days off. Let's see what I can get accomplished.
UPDATE: I talked to my mother who managed to get hold of my sister in the D.C. area. They are without power but are all well. They have trees down in the neighborhood and have been informed that it could be a week or more before they have power again. But at least they and my nephew and niece are all fine.
I'm sending cooling thoughts for all out east without power in this heat.
