Perhaps you should have a Note To Self: For next birthday, buy wife new bucket.

I'm pleased that you didn't say, "Note to Self: For next birthday, get a new wife!" :shock:

Leave your guitar in the car and it will look like a Ukulele in no time.

Last week there was a short break in the everlasting heatwave and we had some heavy rain for a few minutes . I wondered how many were caught with the Velux windows wide open and soaking wet beds .

It's fairly cool this morning (62 F), but the skies are smokey due to all the CA wildfires around me. I think I'd prefer it hot and smoke-free!

Yeah, it's too bad about the fires. I hope that you stay safe.

Yeah - there is drought, heat, and fires from Texas to Oregon, sweeping the southwest and northwest. It's only 95F here today after several days of ~105F last week.

They are saying now that the Carr fire is so intense that it creates "tornadoes" or "vertical rotating columns". The fire induced "tornado" winds are about 100mph (161kph). This creates it's own blast furnace effect. That and ample fuel from years of stupid forest management = fires so intense that the firefighters must abandon some portions and just let it burn. I think tonight they will announce less containment than yesterday - they can't stop it.

I bailed on a fishing trip with buds this last weekend... it was to be at Boss Lake near Merritt, B.C. Forecasted 40C, or 105F. I decided to hang out in my cool below ground basement with my guitar instead. I think I made the right choice.

Trying its hardest to rain, which after all the unbearable heat we've had is a refreshing change. First day without the fan on for a while

Waiting for tropical storm »Helene« passing by. It will hit the western Azorean islands Flores and Corvo in the afternoon with full intensity (gusts 150 km/h - 93 mph and heavy rain), but São Miguel will be touched only lightly tomorrow (gusts up to 65 km/h - 40 mph). Nevertheless I've fixed the flower tubs...

47 degrees F. Partly cloudy and the smoke from the fires is almost gone. We are supposed to have a couple of days of rain starring Sunday. That will hopefully help with the fires. I am in Oregon.
