Yiiiikes... certainly feels like it too. The actual temperature isn't that bad but dew points are so high that it's honestly painful whenever the sun is fully out. Yaaaay for working outdoors with no shade!
Y'all know I am not normally one to call for rain during the summer, but we need it. You can really tell around the Birmingham metro, particularly the southern part, that it is dry. The grass is turning brown in a lot of areas. My asthma needs the dust to settle.
At least some signs of early Fall are beginning to show 'up North'. We still have a ways to go for cooler weather but it is nice to look at the cooler shades of blue/purple on this map and at least dream a little.
Pretty sure the deficit here was mostly erased just today, with a stationary storm dumping heavy rain for about an hour at sunset then two more storms after that. Unexpectedly great way to end a day, that ought to help the garden and settle some dust even if stream levels are still low. Can't ask for much better in August.
