Tired of the brown grass, dead fairways, constant air conditioning, and just really wish it would rain and cool off a bit (keep it above 80 however).

I did not take my kid to play golf yesterday because is 108 on gauge at at my house in the flipping shade.

My son is 4 and could not have been wise to put him that heat.

I normally like the heat but counting the winter the average temp has been way over normal for well over a year now....

(STILL DO NOT WANT ANY SNOW -- HATE SNOW which is definitely not an issue right now)

LIke others, I'm having to water my plants more often. On a positive note, I'm able to leave the top down on my car.

I wouldn't mind sampling Kylee's hot jalapenos.

Higher electricity bills for the air conditioner and the water well. I water this small patch of clover because that’s all my bees have as a nectar source now. I haven’t got as much done around my acreage as I’ve wanted to this year. I’m going through a lot more groceries as my basement is filled with teenage boys playing xBox instead of playing outside. The heat puts them inside closer to their natural food source (my kitchen).

It kind of fits my crusty attitude lately so I kind of like it....

I have stopped eating vegetables unless needed as a vehicle for butter. Vegetable-ians are kinda scary.

It's dried my humor somewhat.

<<<<------ Not much, nothing that a chilled glass would not fix.

Haven't had to mow the lawn so much .. that's cool.

My jalapenos are so hot I can't eat them.

Un-huh. We may need an OTS with gardening tips. It's called watering.

Cashing crop insurance checks, chopping silage. Making zero money. It's so much easier when things are normal...
