Praying for a Cold Front!

Well, it's official. . . we are now at 101 degrees! If you know me at all, you know that this does not make me happy. I drove home for lunch and had had my car parked under a big shade tree - but when I returned to the office, someone else had moved into "my spot." Now I'll be getting into a small, red, round oven when it's time to drive home again.

This follows the 18 days in a row that we have had temps in the 90's. Many farmers are experiencing a total loss in crops, and some have had to sell off 2/3's of their cattle. It's very sad. Closer to home, yards are parched - flowers are either drooping or have died.

As for me, I am fine. I spent almost all of the weekend indoors, sewing the fabric from Hans, Rachel, Josiah and Annika into a new blouse. Thankfully I don't have a job where I must be outdoors as some do.

I'm very sad thinking of those poor thirds of cattle wandering around.

Thank God for central air! ours could barely keep up yesterday.
This weekend I worked with a nice but crazy photog. Its nearly 100 degrees, people are in layered tuxes and dresses...Let's go take pictures in a field! Ugh. (The shots were awesome though)

My prayers have been answered! Yesterday a cold front moved through Minnesota and pretty much stalled - so much so that we have been getting a wonderful rain for over the past 24 hours. This morning the temperature was in the low 70's. What a blessing. Thank you, Lord!
