It has been smokin’ hot the last two days…finally. The locals have been calling this month Junuary as it has been much cooler than normal.
Yesterday working in the yard I was amazed to see how dry it is already, even after cloudy and drizzly days all last week. The forest floor is VERY crunchy. I expect the fire chief will be putting us into morning shift any day now, where no power equipment can be used after 12PM. I still have two fallen trees to buck up for firewood, so I better get to them in the next day or two or they will sit there until October.
The weather is not the only hot thing. The ongoing gong show we call the USA has been getting hotter too. Watching MSNBC the other day Kelly and I both had the exact same thought. Do you?
