we haven't had a measureable rain since June here in Missouri. We are dry, dry, dry. Temps have been in the mid to upper 90's for about 3 weeks now. We did have a VERY nice break from summer heat from the middle of July to the first part of August. Temps were in the mid 70's and low 80's during that period of time- nice while it lasted.
Bow season starts this Sunday the 15th... I'm seriously thinking about going, but not if it's 95 degrees at 6pm at night like it's been.
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
