Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that.

So here's this weeks question: What kind of weather did you have this summer?
Hot and dry. California is experiencing a severe drought. The last really bad drought was in the 70s and it lasted for several years. We are so dry, and there's no rain in sight. There was an article in the newspaper a few days ago about a gentleman that traveled to southern California to visit family and they didn't even know there was a drought. This has been going on since the beginning of time. Our lawns are dead and we ration our water, and in southern California everyone acts like there is plenty of water to go around. Bless their hearts.

  1. Hawt. And Hawt and Humid. And Hawt and Thunderstormy. And then it got really Hawt. Thank goodness that's over and it's finally September because now we're back to just our regular Hawt.

    big hugs honey xoxo

  2. it's been a strange summer. It took forever to get here then it kept going back and forth between nice and then cold. It definitely wasn't a pool summer.

    1. Yikes, I've been hearing this a lot. Got family in Indiana and they didn't get much of a summer either. :)

  4. We have had some cool and some very hot weather, so it hasn't been too bad here. Sorry about your drought. We had that 3 or 4 years ago and it isn't any fun. Have a great Wednesday Sandee.

  5. This summer has been a very different type of summer. Usually we get temperatures in the 90's and great deal of the time but this summer the temps have been in the high 70's, very nice if you like that. We've experienced more rain and storms this year, some severe. Other than that summer was summer after that bad winter that we had. Now we're worried about fall & winter. Already the temps are down 10 degrees in September and I'm beginning to worry about winter. Sorry about the drought and the rationing of water. Are your rivers down a great deal where people can't even go on their boats? I think this world is going nuts in many different ways
    Have a good day Sandee, my friend. Hang in there. I'm praying that you have some rain coming soon. See ya.

  6. Since we traveled out west and also into Canada, we experienced everything but snow, although we saw quite a bit of it in the Rockies. Great summer weather for the most part.

    Big hugs from cool, overcast Mayberry, honey...

  8. We had a lot more humidity than normal for the desert. But of course, it was still hot over 105 sometimes. Looking forward to some cooler weather.

  9. Floods here in the late summer. I'm sure you saw the footage on the news. Interstates were rivers. The wettest summer in the 15 years we've been in Arizona including a day with the highest recorded rainfall in history.

  11. We used to have water shortages in south Florida, with people getting fined for running sprinklers and such. We had a mild summer. Maybe three hot days all season, and jackets in July and August. #crazy

  12. Golly Sandee,

    As much as I hate to admit it, I'm one of those who didn't know that California was experiencing severe droughts, and that you guys are having to ration your water, that's awful. I rarely watch television, but I do read newspapers (online) from around the country, but that isn't an excuse. And to think it's been going on since the beginning of time, really makes me feel like a dummy.

    I hope things get better soon or period.

    Our weather in New Orleans was pretty much the same as it's always been, except it feels like it's getting 'warmer' (An understatement.) each summer. In mid July, you can drop a Hershey's kiss on the sidewalk, and watch it disappear in seconds. I have a feeling it's going to become a new tourist attraction.

    In any event, it seems like the whole country has had a sweltering summer. But, fall is around the corner, isn't it?

    Great question- :))

    By the way, I loved your answer yesterday, and I did reply, although it was later in the day. My apologies- I had a doctors appt. after I posted, and of course it took up most of the afternoon.

    Have a great day my friend.

    Huge hug-

    xoxo

    1. No, there are many parts of the country that hasn't even seen summer yet. Weird weather. :)

  13. We've had a very hot and dry summer. I think we were close to setting the record of the number of 90+ degree days which is highly unusual for here. It's cooler and a slight chance of rain today but again, the weekend will be 90. Ugh! I am not a hot weather person!

    Hope you get rain down there in CA soon although I know it'll take a lot of rain to make things better. Happy Wednesday Sandee! Scritches to Little Bit!

  15. It's the swamp. We only have two seasons, wet and hurricane. The only difference is that hurricane is hotter, and hotter is what we had. But, thank G-d, no hurricanes, just rain when it was due.

  17. I don't know which is worse. The really hot summer or the polar vortex winter they say we'll have this winter. It was miserable the week our a/c broke. However, I'm not looking forward to driving in a bad winter.

    1. I'd rather have it a bit too warm than the freezing cold. Hate the winter. :)

  18. Cool and rainy. Not very summerlike at all. We only hit 90 degrees a couple of times all summer, and those days were in the same week. We basically had 2 weeks of summerish weather.

  19. Our summer has felt cooler and shorter than past ones. My husband, the polar bear, has been less miserable this summer. Me, not so much. I'm the tropical flower in the family who loves the heat and it was in short dribbles this year.

  27. Summer was very good. We got rain when needed and the temperature never got over 100. That's unusual for us. August usually brings 95-105 degree temps and no precipitation. It's already beginning to cool down, which means fall colors could be spectacular. Winter might be a different story.
