Please Turn Off The Sun
August 5, 2017 9:01am CST
From Tuesday we are under a heat wave, the worst I ever experienced. Our, usually mild, temperature reached 38 degrees Celsius (100.4 F) today with high humidity. To fight the heat, we went to the lake to have a light lunch on a public picnic table. The view is always pleasant and relaxing and the vicinity of the water makes the heat more bearable. The weather forecast announces thunderstorms starting late this night, the rain will be more than welcome. No plans for tomorrow, if the forecast is right, it will be a stormy Sunday. Have you plans for tomorrow?

@LadyDuck I saw a documentary about Neanderthals. The climate used to be as crazy as it is right now, then the glaciation took place. Some speculate about a new ice age. Well, it sounds good these days but then we'll complain about the chilly weather.
That is a very nice view, it would cool me off on a hot summer's day too. I wish that we could trade some of our weather, this morning was quite cool, I'm sure only in the 60's and no sun. It felt like a late September day in fact. I hope that it turns around, summer surely cannot be over just yet.

@LadyDuck Yeah I am migrating north soon to say the least if this is how it is going to be. Screw corporate America. about survival and not sure we can last many more summers like this. Plus our government is about useless at this point.
@crossbones27 Our big glaciers are melting. Last week a glacier gave back a couple who went out a winter of the year 1946 and they were never been found. There they were, under the snow and the ice, that is now melting due to the excessive heat.

Sorry you are having such a heat wave. Ours broke this week, but today you can tell that the humidity is back up. Hope that the rain brings some relief for you. Going to church tomorrow. Getting ready to finish up with my Sunday school lesson when I am done on here. Have a blessed day.

It's been very hot here all week with thunderstorms almost every day. Today is a little less hot. Tomorrow I'm having company so I'm hoping we don't get any thunderstorms. Your picture by the lake looks very relaxing while you enjoyed your picnic lunch
