And the weather is outrageously warm this week. Check out the temperature below for Tuesday:
.......we got up to 82 degrees this week; "normal" should be around 45 or so. It's 73 now on Wednesday, Dec. 12th! And still no rains..........the drought situation is getting severe now. God willing, we might get "showers" tomorrow, and some "substantial" measurement of rain this Saturday. DH is working in the yard raking tons of leaves and pine straw and also vacuuming them up with the riding mower, but dust just flies up from the least movement. We also live down a long gravel driveway from the highway to the house, so we have a good standing reason for not washing the cars too often! It only takes ONE trip in or out to get covered again with dust!
