    Stay cool Pacific Northwest

    Heat dome!!! Scary
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Yes, not looking forward to it at all.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    We had the hottest June 18th on record last Feiday. Then, followed by lovely weather all week. It’s warming up now, but we had a respite from the crazy hot weather.


    But honestly I didn’t mind the hot weather. I minded the weather about two weeks ago when we had super high humidity and it was just miserable. Yes it was hot, but the humidity was unbearable. And then the following day it went back to normal hot summer.

    We rarely see 100, but 102 is predicted for later this week. My friend in the Willamette valley is looking forward to 111! And their power grid is shaky under normal conditions.

    We are just outside the Portland Metro area... I'm getting my gardening and dog walking done in the early and late hours. There are a couple of days were it won't get much less than 75 degrees at night. That is so not us in the land of trees and moss.

    I've been making ice all day, and tomorrow early I'll top up the garden water. It's supposed to be record-breaking-hot here this weekend, and this is the coolest corner of the whole state.

    Forecast for Walla Walla June 29: high 112F, low 80F

    Already there was one wildland fire in the grass along Highway 12 near Sudbury Rd. The county fire department put the fire out.

    We had 1.5 inches of rain last night, good to wet everything down. The mad chaos of illegal fireworks continues here in the ‘Hood.

    On the news last night at a local feed store there was a truck loaded with hay that spontaneously combusted. Everything went up in flames.
