Heatwave

"An excessive heat warning is in effect for our area."

No kidding. It's so hot the silk plants are wilting.

While temps of 104F and higher may not seem like much to those living in the desert areas of California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Mexico, at least y'all cool off in the evenings. We wake up to 85F temps at 5:00 am.

I suppose I should take the forced indoor opportunity and get some photos of my new pieces done. I'll leave y'all with a photo of one of our neighborhood friends:

Just showing my ignorance here, is that a Road Runner? I've even had to do a conversion on the temperature - yes that's hot, but the worst is not having any respite overnight. If it's any consolation, and it probably isn't, we're having rain, rain, and more rain in Europe.

@ a.
Yes, it's a roadrunner.
I wish you could send us some of your rain! Hope things are OK where you are with no major flooding. Europe seems to be getting slammed with the wet stuff year after year as of late.

That is such a neat looking bird. I've never seen a roadrunner before (outside of the cartoon one!)

I just wanted you to know that I got a belly laugh out of your quip about the silk plants wilting in the heat. I'm so glad to not be living in that kind of climate anymore!
