Ahh I can breathe again

Post  greatgranny on 7/5/2012, 10:02 pm

Just went outdoors. Was out about 2 hours ago and it was miserable. It is now down to 77 and the humidity has dropped considerably. Rain is predicted for tonight and tomorrow.

Ohhhh that is so wonderful! It's funny how it just makes you feel better when it cools down and there's is a chance of rain! I do hope you get it and it gives you a good soaking, but not a drowning amount, lol!

Sounds like the opposite of a chinook.
With a chinook, it can be 40 degrees below zero (and at 40 below, celcius and farenheit are the same).. and if a chinook hits it can warm to above freezing in the matter or hours.

I just told you that story to further cool you off. I feel so fortunate that it is not that hot here, my veggies are not a big, but I like it cooler. Smile

The chinook happens here in the winter also. We love it in Minnesota when we hear of a chinook coming in from South Dakota. We almost want to get out the shorts and flip flops. Laughing

Spoke too soon. Back up into the mid 90's and no rain. I was going to mow - 2 acres - but opted out to wait until it does rain. Why stress the poor grass. Anyway, back to hand watering after the sun moves a bit more. Can't believe how fast things dry up. I really soaked everything at about 6 last night. Dry as a bone now. Intense is the word of the day.

I've come to believe that temperature is relative. In January if the temp gets up to 32 here we think we are having a heatwave. Now we have just the opposite going on.

99° but humidity is down to 28% so it is breathable out there. My plants are grateful they are shading their own soil! I will water later this evening so that they get some more moisture. Same temps tomorrow then down to lower 80s for highs Sunday! But they took all chances of rain out of the forecast for the week.....darn...

Oh I am so sorry about the heat and no rain! That is just crazy how dry it is there! I hope things get better!

Wow, I didn't realize a chinook warms it that quickly!

That is the pits! I think I would just melt into a puddle with that much heat and humidity! Hope things get better soon for you!

Wow, chance of rain gone, that is terrible. I'm glad the humidity went down some for you though! Try and keep cool!

Another night like last night. It's just beautiful now. Great sleeping weather plus I'm sure the plants are loving the chance to cool off.

Yes, doing the happy dance. It is raining. I have prayed for this for a week. Note the temp here. It will have a chance to soak in and help the garden and the grass. Didn't cut it for 2 weeks so it wouldn't completely die out. smiles cheers
