It has been late July hot and muggy here in the Hoosier state the last couple of days and today is promising to be the hottest day of the year….
It was over 70 degrees when I got up at 5:30 and is still about the same although the humidity is going up. Stepping outside feels like walking into a warm shower and thanks to the neighbor’s hog farm, it is pretty gamey as well. This might have something to do with the high humidity….
That should hit us right around 9 AM. There are thunderstorms on and off in the forecast all day and it is supposed to be near 80 at midnight.
This is the kind of hot and humid weather my old VoAg teacher would say makes the corn grow so fast you can hear it growing if you listen carefully. It is tough on the livestock so we are making sure all of their water is topped off. On the bright side, the heat is supposed to break overnight and next week looks just amazing, lower humidity and temperatures with a few days of highs only in the upper 70s.
People are freaking out over the heat but it is always hot like this at least one month in July, it is summer after all. I also know that we are turning the corner and heading back to the fall and then winter, and the same people will bitch because it is cold. In Northeast Indiana. Like it is every year.
How are things in your neck of the woods?
