Hot, hot, hot! In the winter we shiver when we hear the wind chill is below zero, and now we are listening to reports that the heat index is above 100 degrees. We have plenty of trees in and around our small acreage, and those, plus cooler nights, bring our daytime temperatures down a bit, but we’ve not had rain in several weeks and the afternoon heat is making pathways dusty and dry.
