Scorcher today

National Weather Service is predicting a barn-burner for this afternoon, in the upper nineties for the first time this year. It usually rains on Memorial Day weekend. See the infamous Memorial Day flood so many years ago. This year there’s none forecast until Tuesday night at the earliest. I hope that changes. We need it. It’s been an unusually-dry May heading into a normally-dry summer.

UPDATE:  Prayers answered. Ten minutes of steady downpour at 4:45 p.m. overwhelming the gutters and creating puddles on the patio and in the street. Dropped the temperature more than ten degrees, into the low eighties.
