    Think it got around 103. Looking at 105 tomorrow and 107 Sat but still mid to high 90s next week though. No rain in sight besides the 20% here and there but we never get that. I am going on 2 weeks not mowing my weeklys. Will end up being 3 weeks when they do get mowed if we get any of this small chance rain. Probably will be skipping almost everyone even biweeklys this weekend and end up probably getting all crammed into one week.

    This is probably one of the worse summers I have seen so far. Usually 2 weeks is max for our weekly stuff and usually never skip biweekly. But was the best spring. So I guess it evens out in someway.

    We only hit 100 here in Cincy. I'm glad I finished the shingles on my covered patio job on Wednesday. I saw a lot of poor bstards up on roofs yesterday, though.

    It's about 15-20 degrees hotter on average than the norm. There is also nowhere near the average rainfall for this team of year.

    Quit bein a smarmy know-it-all.
