    Supposed to rain today, but I'm guessing it won't. Today is basically our only hope for ANY rain for the month of July.

    106 yesterday,that's 5 days in a row 100 or above.:mad: Rarely to see 100 more than 1 or 2 times all summer here,10 days this July alone.Hopefully that's done for a while.The 'cold' front arrived last night as expected.

    .54 of rain officially last night in my city,.75 in my rain gauge.Reports of 1/2 to almost 2 inches in other parts of northern & central Iowa. More rain expected towards the weekend,with much cooler temps. FINALLY!! 94 today (sure dont seem that warm outside,maybe I'm used to the crap already :p) low 80's Friday through Monday.

    This summer has sure been one for the record books. I have seen them hotter but not this dry.

    Well, as expected not a single drop yesterday. We are now officially in the "exceptional drought" category.

    Only 81 here right now,over 3 weeks since its been that cool.Area I'm in is the Severe category,some cities or rural parts of various counties can be slightly better or worse.
