Weather...grrrr

This is definitely turning out to be an oddball year weather-wise. Here, we had about one week of spring temps before it got beastly hot. Now, what has happened to autumn? The average temp in October should be in the 60s; but it's only 40 something every day for a high.

The farmers are really feeling the pain. Lots of fields still have beans, which means they haven't started on the corn yet. Add in day after day of rain, and it will have to be after the temps stay below freezing before they can finish harvesting.

One bright spot: Saturday is forecast to be in the 50s and I have the day off so will be trying to get everything done outside.

This definitely has to be one of the worst years in many years - weather-wise. Well, politically-wise, too, but that's a different kettle of rotten fish. We have unbelievably high temperatures and are going to get torrents of rain, followed by a plunging of the temps. Makes you just want to crawl under the covers and stay there until it's normal.
