I hope everyone is holding up okay with this heat. I love my AC and I miss my pool. So much of the country is under some kind of strange weather problems. We are in the drought area of Wisconsin. Just about given up on my plants. Some thriving others struggling. I have barrels for rain water but even that is being rationed by now. Try and have a good summer everyone.

What a relief finally!!! Yay finally got all the air conditioners working right and finally cooled down my house, thanks to the boyfriend. My house temp reached 89 degrees inside. Temps outside hit over 100 degrees and boy my scars from my previous heart surgery didn't like the heat and sweat. Hope everyone can stay cool and comfy with this unbearable heat

harley,

Yup, it seems it is the same story across the country. I am my Dad's "landland" and he called me on the Fourth to say his air conditioning went out. Fortunately, I was able to gt a service person there and the fix was simple enough so that he had all the parts needed (but not cheap given it was a national holiday, lol).

Interesting about the heat affecting the scar tissue. It would be fascinating to hear more about it and from others as well! Is this a common phenomenon?

Sat out on the front porch this morning feeling the north wind blow. Finally relief within reach. Hope everyone has survived this. We have a music festival coming to our area in a couple of weeks. Country Thunder and in the past it has downpoured, created mud lakes, mud slides, fights, and overall mud slinging partying for 3 days. I am hoping for the same this year so our crops can at least get saturated and our creeks get refilled. So pray for rain or Country Thunder whichever comes first:)

tank,

Is that the festival in Twin Lakes, WI? I heard Dwight Yoakam and Toby Keith are performing. They also have Country Thunder in Arizona where my Dad used to live.

Yes same company sponsors. It used to start on a Thursday through Sunday but the last couple of years has only been 3 days. We can hear the music from our house, but not as well as years ago. A whole new subdivision with towmhomes has been built between us and the festival grounds.

tank,

I'm right there with ya! Woof, it is hot! Just moved my dad back from Arizona and it is just like being there - walls of heat. I moved him into a rental property I previously had my mother-in-law in and of course the A/C went out but got it fixed so no health concerns there.
