    :shock: :shock: It is gone.
    Totally dried up. I don't ever think I have seen it without some water. I guess almost 50 days of 100 plus temperatures will do that.

    I've seen it so high it was almost touching the bridge . . . I hope this Texas drought ends soon. We've had only 1.41 inches for the entire year here.

    It is a horrid summer in Texas; really the whole year as far as lack of rainfall.

    Fellow quilters... I've been the WORST whiner about the heat... even joking about my whining melting... But I just noticed a post on FB reminding us that we're hot, but we're not having to wear full battle gear (70+) pounds and worry about someone shooting at us or driving over an explosive device...

    I was humbled... A friend whose son is at war says the daily temperature is close to 130 degrees...

    no more whining for me...

    I feel really ashamed of complaining about 5 days of heat when you all down south have had 50 days over 100 and are totally drying up. Up here the Missouri River is flooding all over the place and the Red River is dry. Nothing makes sense any more.

    Well, if you can spare it, I would sure appreciate being able to borrow about 2-3 days worth of rain & river water. ;)

    The river in our town is going down, too! Usually, too much is our problem, but not now.

    Ranchers are selling their cattle in record numbers because of the water and the dead grass. It is really bad and it will affect a lot of people in the supermarkets down the road.
