Skywatch Friday - Blessed with Blue Skies

Blue skies are fine but we would rather have some rain.  Our high today was 103°F, down from yesterday's 113°.  You might think that when the temperature exceeds 100 there is not much difference in the way it feels.  I believe that 113 is the hottest day that I have had the privilege of experiencing first hand and it definitely felt hotter than 103.  Those of you in cooler climes who are struggling with temperatures greater than 90° should just suck it up and count your blessings.  And to those who live in desert regions where the temperatures routinely exceed 120°F, you guys are tough.

Way too hot for me. Good thing I live in the northwest. Your beautiful tree reminds me of some of the old growth we have left in our forests. - Margy
