It's Not The Heat, It's the Humidity

So the saying goes and in many respects very true. The heat wave that has been coming across the US has arrived and all I can say is misery. 70+% humidity makes it like a sauna just to stand outside and that is in the shade. A hot wind and extremely dry conditions are adding to the misery. Where is a good tropical storm (rain only) when you need one?

I went out and changed out what little water was left in the bird baths and filled up. The birds were a'twitter waiting and quickly showed their appreciation. Looking at the forecast, Satuday will be a short morning out. Summer is definitely here and not ready to yield to the approaching fall.
