Anyone getting cooler weather yet?
So far it's the middle of September and we haven't had a HINT of cooler weather.
I feel like I live in Miami, Florida.
I'm also tired of the DROUGHT and all the hideous red areas on the drought monitor.
So for fun I changed the colors to GREEN. Ah, that's better! :0)
I'm also tired of the burnt plants (which I will move to shade...long story).
I changed them into art. I still feel no better about almost dead plants. But at least Andy Warhol would be proud.
What's much harder to photoshop is the current heat wave.
The important thing to notice are those little numbers down in the lower left hand corner.
94.1 and 74.7.
When you average them together you get...
84.4 degrees Fahrenheit
Photoshop version of the current heat wave numbers.
It's a bird. It's plane. It's super drought! Ugh!
DROUGHT....IT'S NOT JUST FOR BREAKFAST ANYMORE!
Again, that 84.4 is not very interesting until you look at the TOP TEN HOTTEST chart below:
Now we're cooking...literally. If you hone in on that bright red column, you can see the current record for the last 123 years of Septembers is 83.4!
Hopefully, the endless highs of 95s and lows of 75s won't be endless.
But for right now it simply means that I water my poor garden for an hour every day just to keep it alive!!! Ugh!
84.4 as of September 12th.
And maybe someday it will actually rain again.
the always hopeful gardener.
