It was so hot in the midst of summer that…flowers melted.

Yup.. The prairie has been dry and hot until very recently. I been listening to Woody Guthrie’s Dust Bowl songs. So American, poignant yet ragged, determined when challenged, humble yet proud, showy yet internal and always, no matter how cushy modern living may look, always on its knees for mercy from the power of Nature and above.
You get a glimpse of how the dust bowl occurred, living in these constant baked days and nights. The cool change in the weather over the past week has brought instantaneous change – the grass is growing, the flowers are trumpeting on their stalks and vines!
Hope your weather has cooled down by now! Been reading about the murderous heat and drought in the midwest. Summer has finally ended here on the east coast, I’m relieved to say. What a difference cooler temperatures make in one’s state of mind (not to mention the subterranean commute).
Yes, yes, it’s much cooler and I’m going outside at night wearing a jacket. Sheesh. The extremes! (it’s nice, tho!)
We’ve been in that hot zone all summer. Grass the color of straw and as crunchy as walking on chow mein noodles. Flowers are just about gone… although the seedems are coming into flower. I should plant more of them! Today is surprisingly temperate. I will savor it — winter will arrive soon enough.
great description…”as crunch as chow mein noodles..” I got so used to the heat that now I’m freezing! wearing sweatshirt and flannel pants at breakfast table!
No, it was not the most pleasant summer, weather-wise. Now is perfect. I should be outside enjoying it, rather than inside, sillily commenting. Sigh…
And yere come de’ southun grumpus, sayin’ “Dayum – she still be HOT round here!” 😉
That’s ok. Only two weeks until October, and maybe then we can hit the 70s for highs. I am glad to hear things are getting more seasonal up there!
yes, cooler! but wedding activities/preparation are heating up!
Daughter marries fiance in three weeks!
Awww that’s how I feel too! lol! it has been a hot summer, but fall in coming!! YAY!
