Another Weather Report

There is practically no knitting progress.  Even with air conditioning, wool just looks too hot when outside temps are like this.  Today, however, we have cool.  The high is supposed to be “only” 98, with the possibility of scattered thundershowers.  Those will not necessarily be a blessing even if we are in a drought because thundershowers in this heat often mean very violent weather in this area of the country.  The other reason they might not be a blessing is because the precipitation is estimated at 0.1 to 0.25 inches.  Yes, for those of you who live in other places, the average person here, particularly those in agriculture, measure these tiny quantities on their own. (I think there’s something wrong with subject-verb-pronoun agreement in that sentence, but I’m too hot and dry to care.)

Normal conversation:

“How much rain d’get last night?”

“On that section north a town, I got a tenth, but that half south just got 3 hunerts.”

And I feel bad even complaining about the heat and drought when I see the damage done by the tornadoes and floods in other parts of the US.  God bless you all!
