Guess what it did?

It RAINED!!!! You don't know how exciting that was this morning. And it was 68 degrees at 10am too. Miracles can happen.

We have had a few sprinkles at night the last couple of nights but mostly far off thunder of others getting more rain. But we had dark clouds and a good hour of rain. It will take a lot more to replenish the lakes/rivers/ground but it was a good start. The cooler temperatures remind us that yes summer can go away and that we will not be locked into 100 degrees for the rest of our lives.

Not quite sure if today will get over 90 degrees. We are tied for the most consecutive days of 90+ heat in Oklahoma City (71 days for those of you counting) and we are close to the record for most days over 100. Both of those records were set in 1980, thankfully before I lived in this state.


  1. YEAH!!! So glad to hear you finally got rain.

  2. Glad you are getting some relief from the heat.
