On a sailboat off the coast of Florida on the S/V Candide, living the good life
103 and a heat index of 110 are the results today. The tarps have definitely helped the plants, as well as the occasional misting with a spray bottle I've been giving the plants every few hours. I know the dry air is sucking the moisture right out of the pots, though. I've had to water twice so far today.
It's 1630, the temp was forecasted at 101 for the high. According to the Forecastfox widget, it's currently 105 actual, feels like 106, wind S10mph. The radar is showing green stuff in CO and NM that is trying to sneak into parts of the OK and TX panhandles. Of course, that might be smoke instead of rain...
Hey I know Effingham, home of the big cross right? Used to pass it on the way to and from siu all the time.
But yea, I've got a severe thunderstorm warning here, but it looks like it's just going to miss me. Hopefully the other cluster won't. I went out when it was 98, and after 10 minutes I was kicking myself for even bothering to shower.
