Red HOT

I felt sorry for the birds during this heat and drought so converted my "working" wagon to a "bird bath". In this photo the ambient air is 107.5 in the shade. Wondering why the Grackles didn't get into the water, I checked the temperature ... 103. I must remember to move it into the shade today.

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor report, 91 percent of the Lone Star State is suffering from either extreme or exceptional drought conditions. Last month was the driest June on record, and the October to June period, the driest continuous nine months on record. We've just experienced the hottest July on record, 51 days with triple digit termperatures - 34 of those consecutively. The economic repercussions of these conditions are being felt across the agriculture industry the decimated corn crop and culling of cattle being prime examples.
