What ever happened to weather.

Now, in July when it's always hot... it is extreme , dangerous, heat... and the actual air temperature isn't even reported... its the theoretical guesstimate called the FEELS like temperature. What a joke.

And tonight, when we are going to get some welcome rain (unusual for July), all they can talk about is the potential for flooding and severe thunderstorms. How about being grateful for the break in the heat? And the chance to stop watering the lawn for a few days.

I'm so tired of extreme everything. Just live and love life. Don't live in fear of the weather... embrace it and enjoy the wonder of it all.
