Except for today (we had cooler temperatures today but it is going back up tomorrow) it has been VERY hot and dry here.
When the kids come over to go swimming I watch them very carefully and run back and forth along the pool edge when they are in the pool with their friends. I jump in and swim when I get too hot and then I go right back to running back and forth.
Yesterday mom told dad that if the kids come over to not let me out with them because she was worried that I would get overheated and also about my paws on the hot concrete. That was terrible! I had to run back and forth in the dining room while they were swimming so that I could see them.
I hope they never do that again! I need to be outside with the kids!
We understand. It was 116F here today...everything is dying or dead. No pool but maybe thats good as water brings the sneaky snakes in here.
Stay cool and safe
We are having the same here. We are currently in stage 2 drought. We might be in stage 3 soon.
Still no measurable rain here. This is a disaster for the farmers! This area grows a lot of corn and soybeans. We are actually in better shape than Southern Illinois, their crops are all withered.
The chances of rain turn out to be storms with just thunder and high winds. We need lots of rain. No chances all week.
