 My area has had the most unusual August, much cooler and wetter then normal. The folks to our south are having it rough( Texas) and we pray that things will get better for the people of that great state, and they recover quickly .

Shannon, yes same weather down south here, 110 the last 2 days and a few more to come, right now 0700 and 70 deg. going up into the triple digits today. Try to do outside stuff early and spend the day in air conditioned house !

Shannon, you and Dennis take care.  I have been lucky so far only a little rain.  I was looking at some photos from down Houston way, it didn't look to good.  I hope RC and Gloria has managed to get bye the blunt of the storm down their way.

RC hope you and Gloria are making it ok, doesn't look good. we are lucky ,up this way it does show we are due for some rain, but I was looking at the photos from down your way. Harvey has beat a path all around the area down your way, hope you got away from the bad area.  You and Gloria take care.

JIM, all I get is some rain, I would not live down south  on the gulf, no way.  Glad to hear RC and Gloria are doing fine.  

Top the day to all, hope everyone is doing fine.

That hurricane is actually effecting our weather up here in Northern California it is causing a high pressure effect that is going to be keeping us in the triple digits temperatures for the next several days according to our local weather people.

I can not even imagine what it must be like getting all that rain at once I heard some reports of up to 35"
