    This is getting ridiculous. Our average rainfall for Aug is 4.3" and average highs are in the low to mid 90's. I'm sure the 30% chance of rain for next week will be gone by Monday.

    Somebody please send us a very rainy cold front soon.

    We're starting to see the leaves change in some parts of the city around here; much, much too early for my liking

    We are too here in Texas...from green to a nice dead brown color. Just got back from the TNLA show in Dallas and the drive from Houston to Dallas is depressing. Entire stands of all types of trees dead all along the route.

    Updated forecast. Mitch, you can have this heat if you want it. That 30% chance of rain will not happen.

    We usually average 4 days a year over 100*, we're on day 24 in a row now and something like day 40 for the year at this point.
