    Hey everyone just thought we needed to start the summer thread. Put away the long sleve shirts and dig out the shorts. We all complained about the cold and snow in the winter thread so come on in and bitch about it being hot

    Why can't we ever get a fire in the spring time. Or when it is a nice 65 degrees. No we have to get them when it is 85. Even if it is just a car fire.

    Ok I am done whining.

    You bet it's hot. I worked on a blacktop parking lot at the funeral home all day yesterday.
    We talked about grass fires in the springtime thread. There have been a few in the area in the last week. At the same time, some locations had 2+ inches too. Speaking of rain, we need some in Pearl City. I'm getting tired of watering my garden.

    As I said in the meeting last week, it's as dry as a popcorn fart around here. MAYBE storms this week. Need it to rain like a cow ****ing on a flat rock. Man, I love living in the country!!!

    Figured a Southerner better get in on this, too, but Jay pretty well covered everything. We still don't need any rain, farmers are just getting started planting beans. I'm replacing about 150 water meters in pits and having to bail water out of half of them. PC, bring your buckets down here and I'll fill them up for free.

    I wish we could BUY a good storm. I'm really getting tired of this 97F with 137% humidity. And it doesn't look like it's going to cool off anytime soon.

    Just like you northners, hoging all the rain

    You can keep all the storms just send us a nice shower.
    Getting tired of watching the lightning in the north and still haven't gotten enough rain to wet the sidewalk.

    Sounds like the north has been hit hard by these recent storms. Hope no one has been injures or killed. Take care and be safe.

    CRACCCCCK!! KA-BOOM!!!!

    We had one HUMDINGER of a storm blow through here this afternoon. The sky was a really ugly green, but I didn't hear of any tornado sightings. The storm was tracking east, north of Calgary when it took a "sharp right turn" according to the weather guys, which caused all hell to break loose. Thunder, lightening, pouring rain, hail from pea to marble size DT, pea to grape to golf ball size in some areas, some flooding. Hit right at rush hour of course.

    Just talked to my dad in Jasper (small tourist town in the Heart of the Canadian Rockies - about 4 1/2 - 5 hrs northwest of Calgary), asked if they got hit too. Well did they ever!! First time EVER they've been booted off the golf course, and a lightening strike started a forest fire on Pyramid Bench. Think they got it out though, Dad said he saw the helo dropping H20 on it.

    This picture is my sister and 2 of my nieces with Pyramid Mountain in the background.

    Sheri, I can see why you people put up witht he winters in Canada. It's to look forward to summer. The picture is absolutly gorgeous.
    I didn't think I'd be saying this anytime soon, but we really could use a rain. Haven't seen much in a couple of weeks, although a few spots had 1 - 2 inches last week. Not us though. I'll do my part to cool it off. I should get the A/C running again in my house in the next day or two. That'll make the weather cool off for sure. Might not even have to turn it on after I get it going.
    80, it looks funny down here to see one field of corn 7 ft. tall and tassling and right next to it is a field of corn that's 8 inches tall. Almost looks like some of the beans are taller than the corn.
    Cap, send us the rain. It does look like we're in for a stormy night tonight. Hope it doesn't get too rough but as hot and humid as it is, anything might happen.

    Jack... Be careful what you wish for. I bad mouthed the greedy northeners yesterday and received 3" last night. Big storms in the area again tonight but have not been out to check the gage yet. They gave an alert for an unconfirmed funnel cloud in West Quincy and luckily that was the only sighting reported. Still sounded like Quincy area had lots of wind damage. Lots of reports of trees and wired down.

    You are talking about rain, right?

    Finally got a peaceful night last night. The weathermen say it's over for a little while. Let's hope so.

    Come on corn, GROW!!!

    I might keep asking for more. It rained 3 miles North of here yesterday afternoon and 2 miles South, but only a few drops at home. I cut grass all afternoon. Last night we got .4. No storms, no wind, just a nice shower. We could probably use that much more but I think its over for now. We've been right in the middle of everything again. Just hope that keeps up. Let you people up north keep all the bad weather. That's something we don't mind letting Chicago have.
