Six weeks of no rain. It's an official drought.
Two weeks of daytime highs around 100 degrees. Yesterday Kalamazoo set a new record for the day, 105 degrees.
The grass is brown.
The dogs and I are not taking our usual walks in the back three acres because 1) it's too hot 2) the deer flies are swarming and hungry for human blood.
There is fruit on the blackberry stems in the back three acres. How do I know if I don't walk out there? The birds leave the evidence on my car.
