    I'm glad I 'm not in Texas. You can keep your 100 degree temps. I'm in Wisconsin and it got up to 91 today and I believe thats the hottest its been here in a long time lol .

    My concern is our aquifers and wells, some areas of Texas had large amounts of wells run dry last Summer and our drought is still going.

    The floods in Wales meant that my chickens had to come and live in the house for a few days as their coop was under water! I wish we had some of the nice sunny weather... maybe you could send some our way :)

    It's pretty wet up here in Scotland too, I've got a big tarpaulin over the coop to keep the girls dry. I've not had to resort to bringing them in yet, I hope it doesn't come to that!

    The humidity here is driving me crazy. Step outside, start sweating.

    I welcome the humidity since it brings rain. Day after day of 105+ drains me.

    All I have to mow is the stickers. They are pretty bad this year.

    I would happily take the 105 if it meant less humidity. Humidity steals my energy and makes me stay inside.

    Is that typical?

    We've had the same issue. Consequently our mold count is high and everyone I know is having headaches from it.

    I'm grateful for the rain, we need it, but at the same time being stuck in the house for days is no fun.
