Did you Survive

Did everyone survive the hot weekend?
The National Weather Station claims this weekend was the hottest Memorial weekend in history (or as far back as they have tracked) and the hottest Memorial Day since 1934.
Camping was fun, although the heat got to us on Sunday. I spent the day at the swimming pool with the boys and Dave and Ivan and the rest of the guys went golfing for 18 holes. We were all pretty shot by the end of the day.
If this weather is any indication of what kind of summer we are going to have, Dave will be working 7 days a week again. Heather-watering your plants will become a full time job (smiles). Maybe Dave could fix you up an irrigation system (haha).
Hope you all had a great weekend.

Hello everyone.
The weekend was definetly hot. I'm hoping I've lost a lot of weight just due to the sweating as a result of taking a breath.
I have been watering my flowers 2x/day, but last night, thankfully it rained a little. If it stays this hot, I might have to get an irrigation systme for the lawn, flowers, trees, and some set up for the horses, chickens, dogs, and cats.
Despite the heat, I had a wonderful weekend. I was able to get some work done, but am suffering the consequences now. I'm not sure if I have heat rash or an allergic reaction to something due to a bad rash, near to being hives. Will hopefully have it disappear w/ Benadryl.

I attended a bridal shower, graduation party, and had a bbq this weekend. We also did some visiting and had people over for breakfast on Monday.
Jody, better camping than last year? Wasn't that when there was a major storm causing all kinds of problems?

Well .... I believe the tides they are a changin'! Arizona had an awesome weather weekend! Actually hauled a sweater with me on Saturday evening and Sunday ... even wore the thing on Sunday! Didn't hit 100 at all, am not sure it even hit 90 one of the days! Perhaps we should switch sprinker systems!
