Wow! it sounds like the monsoon has hit England! I'm in McLeod Ganj and we're getting quite a bit of rain too. But that's to be expected this time of year.

oh how sick UK climate is......

the last line in my bro's mail today

"cheers from a rather gloomy reading.... the summer is doomed...that's it folks, go to spain for sunshine, no more summer in UK this year"

I feel bad for him and you all in UK but also feeling lucky to be not living there myself.

In Minneapolis, MN and it is HOT (90+ C degrees) with a dry hot wind and no rain in future forecast.

Today on my walk home from the library I couldn't help but be saddened by all the dry dead looking flowers and trees...I water my flowers/vegetable garden every other day because they are like my earth family... and the birds, butterflies, bunnies and bugs are all gasping for moisture.

that's very hot for up your way, crowgirl -- I used to canoe vacation in Ely -- but those temps are normal for Chicago...typical Midwestern prairie summer here -- hot, hot and hot with massive humidity for over a week now...very sultry and sweltering. unlike you, tho, we've had massive thunderstorms, so don't need to water my gardens.

have a ton of monarchs, swallowtail butterflies, and hummingbirds zipping around....

so when people asked me after my first trip to India "didn't the temperature and humidity bother you?". my answer was "no, I think it's more humid in Chicago!"

ha ha Yes!- I was born/lived in lower FL (almost to the Keys) so I am very familiar with humidity- here in MN we belong to the Y and do a dry sauna followed by a wet hot steam almost every day of the year so India was just fine. If my husband had his druthers he'd probably move to India for the remainder of his life.

Today it is cloudy not a drop of rain since the Met department announced "Heavy to very heavy rain"

As for dinner I have bread (not in a mood to do anything after being soaked in rain and the slush water).
Hi first timer , could not understand your time count on your journey home . looks like you did it a lot quicker in the rain ? . hope you have dried out by now . blackeye

Last night on our walk in a nearby park an enormous tree section had broken and fallen only moments before we came upon it. The park people had driven their motorized cart over to do a damage assessment. The lack of rainfall stresses the big old trees and if they have any internal disease happening they can drop without warning.

Very early morning (3AM)TODAY we had a tremendous, torrential rainfall/lightening/thunderstorm sweep across our droughtstriken area...many powerlines and outages/damages reported... but the rain fell and that is a Good thing!!! Apparently more to follow later today!!!
