     I pay $30 a month,billed quarterly @$90.  Up till last year we were paying $20 quarter but then a new company took over our water company & raised the rates.  Couldn’t complain too much; the old price had been in effect for years & the co. was going bankrupt.  The main problem is the water looks, smells & tastes horrible.  I don’t know anybody here that actually drinks it even though they say it’s perfectly safe.  New owner is supposed to make all these upgrades & improvements.  Haven’t seen any yet,  I don’t even give it to my dog.

    I agree with you, Charlene ~~~ I think (at this rate) it is going to be a very loooong, HOT summer for all of us.

     

    Being my day off today, I started outside very early to finish picking up remains from the neighbors tree shedding leaves terribly in last evenings’ hard winds etc.  Before I realized it , I had been outside (so enjoyable) nearly 3 hours but it was getting hot/humid so I came inside.

     

    Hubby mentioned that our inside weather station thermometer said it was 97.4* @ 3 PM this afternoon.  UGH !!!

     

    It is now nearly 9 PM and becoming a bit more tolerable for the evening here.  Hubby is outside watering where he had to replant grass seed from having our well replaced early this spring.  CANNOT get the grass to even start growing ~~~ :(

     

    Tonight is the first night since Friday that we haven t had overnight “”guests”” due to the storm in town taking out the electricity so the house is quiet. Some (in town) will not get power back again until next Saturday.

     

    Back to work tomorrow so don t know if or what time I ll get to stop in here with everyone again but please, everyone, stay hydrated and as cool as possible .  It IS going to be a long, hot summer ~~~

    Well it didn’t hit over 100 today so I feel blessed.  The 1/4th inch of rain we got evaporated I think before I left for work as it was like fog on our windshields on the outside.  BIG pots had plants wilting when I got home and birdbaths half dry, pool has dropped a good 3 inches. AGH  My basic bill is $35 minimum but that is water/sewer and garbage pickup.  $65 for the month of May, I’d say a good $120 or I might choke and it’ll be more than that.  Should be coming to read the meter, to think of it, I should go fill the pool up NOW and hope they didn’t come today and at least I can get a sewer adjustment cause I have a pool, unless you have a pool or water leak, you can’t get the once a year adjustment. LOL

    I see Steve’s weather tag is showing 98% humidity, when I woke this morning it was 93% and now that the sun is up, even with cooler temps, you can feel the heat. But with it having been at least 103 by the weatherman (my pool deck was showing 105 yesterday afternoon, to say the least, I had a POOL full of people and my friend was happy to not be home since her air was out. LOL  Today will only be 98 but suppose to be higher temps, we’ve had desert-like weather, they said it was arid (whatever that means) weather with high temps and super dry air, the sun would cook you and you could see it radiating off everything distorting your vision. LOL

    I think a big part of our high humidity is from the big storms that rolled through last night and so far this  morning we still have  quiet a few clouds around.

    I went out to hang my sheets up and was so surprised…it actually felt cool outside. A nice breeze coming from the west. I piled up all of the limbs can crap that was all over the back yard now to get myself out there and do the rest of the yard. Apparently Steve didn’t lose power last night, I am happy for him for that.
