• I remember the summer of 1980 being a particularly bad summer, heat-wise. But not so much drought-wise. This is absolutely the worst I have seen it. We need some relief, and we need it NOW!

    The dashboard on my car is actually "peeling" up, coming unglued, or whatever they use to attach it. Now I will have to go to a body shop to get it repaired. I really think it is because of the intense and prolonged heat. I've never seen a dash do that before. We have had wild animals on our land that we have never seen around here before, looking for water, I suppose.

    Strange, strange year. I dont' want another like it EVER.
