When I have said that it’s hot here, I mean it is really hot!
All of the grass has burnt up in the yard just from the heat, in some places the grass is gone straight down to the dirt. There isn’t any rain forecast for at least another week here. We have burn bans as well as fireworks bans in our area and all around us.
We have lost over 800 acres of the Mark Twain National Forest due to forest fires. That’s 2 separate fires. One was started by pure freak accident. A man was bush hogging when he hit a rock, created a spark and there it went.
This isn’t the best of photos, however I snapped one of our thermometer. Our temps are expected to stay in the 3 digit range through the weeks forecast.
Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, please stay cool and check in on any neighbors to make sure everyone is doing well and staying hydrated.
