Today, in my snow globe world, it got up to 103.3 degrees. Way to hot. Heat and I don't get along. Rumor has it, tomorrow is suppose to be a tad cooler, (only 94 in Spokane), and then a major cool down during the week. I am thinking right now that snow would be nice. If you ask me in late winter, I'll tell you spring would be nice. Some people are never satisfied. One thing bad about the heat, besides it's hot, are fires. We live in a wooded area, and it's dry out here. You'd think with the 123 inches of snow we had last winter, it wouldn't get so dry, but it does. It's still fairly green, for the most part, and the water level in the rivers and streams is going down. The deer were out when it was still hot. Soon they will be fattening up for winter. My cat, Murphy, the spoiled, I mean special, cat decided he needed to sit on laps today. I really didn't need a furry, hot body on my lap. He has his own oak rocking chair right by the AC/heater vent. Next time I write, I will have to tell you about Murphy. The wind has come up. Wouldn't you know it, now I have to close the windows so everything doesn't blow all over. Oh well. That's life in a melting snow globe.
