I saw on the news today where the EPA is being investigated for covering up a study that found global warming no worse than 50 years ago. I don't expect much to come out of it, it's easier to control the people and separate them from their money by blaming them for global warming.

I'm no Obama fan, but in all fairness, and in my disgust with ALL politicians, this did not start with Obama. It's been a long time coming.

A few days ago, New Orleans (my neck of the woods) reached it's hottest day in the history of the city. 104 degrees farenheit (the actual temp, not the heat index). The water in our pool is even in the 90s!!! My AC never shuts off. I'll have an anxiety attack next time my electric bill comes. Bring on the rain...but let it know when to stop.

Rain!
We did get a bit of rain today here in Carencro, just enough to make mud with the dirt on the windshield, but it cooled things off while it lasted. I suppose tomorrow it will feel like a sauna!

So are you suggesting that ppl who voted for Obama are not educated?

No, what the person meant was that those of us who DIDN'T vote for Obama are MORE educated than those who did.

I assume you do not listen to talk radio, i.e, Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity?

Let's not turn this into a political debate, shall we?!?

This heat is giving me enough of a headache!

It hit record highs again yesterday, we had thunder and lighting at night but no rain Chance of rain today again, I'm praying it is so!

Okay by me! Hubby reported that it was 87 outside our house. I did notice it was cooler this morning when I stepped outside with the garbage.

However, it's still too hot to think about knitting on my sweater, which I'd like to get done before fall, but I do have a lace shawl in progress which is coming along nicely.

I'm working on a cotton/acryllic cardi. The yarn's not so hot, so it helps me stay on it.

Well, though I can empathize with all of you - I can't sympathize lol! It has been a truly miserable June in New England. There were only I beleive 2 days in June that it did NOT rain. Temps have been hovering in the 60's for the most part! I literally had to light the woodstove a couple of nights to get the dampness out of the house! Been tempted to put on a turtleneck a few times too...but limited myself to throwing on a fleece sweatshirt Right about now I'd kill for a little heat and humidity! (And I don't think I'm alone in those sentiments!)
