Still HOT here in South-East Kansas
As I sit here and finish my last cup of coffee for the day at 8:30am, it's 83 degrees outside. It looks like the heat wave will be around for a while longer with the next several days running close to or at 100 degrees. I did manage to mow the lawn yesterday when it was 98 degrees outside with the help of my wife bringing out cups of water for me. :) She also trimmed some bushes that we have in our yard and filled the bird baths and ended up with tons of mosquito bites.
Every day we have a Heat Advisory lasting until the next day. I wish they would just say until further notice. :)
Heat Advisory Remains In Effect Until 7 PM CDT Monday...
