It's freaking disgusting in Detroit. Though we've enjoyed some heavy rains over the past few days, neighborhoods around us took the brunt of those storms. As soon as the rains would pass, the sun would come back out and relief was short lived. After 5 minutes, it felt like a sauna. The newscasters said yesterday they were sure all of us were awakened by the early morning thunder. Not me. I slept soundly. Someone I work with couldn't leave her home yesterday due to a tree having relocated itself to her driveway. She lives a mile from me and still I heard nothing. We did get some hail on the 4th. I was on the porch when it was coming down and flying sideways. It stung when the marble sized pellets of ice hit my legs. That was one long two day chain of storms that was so hit and miss, I'm sure some got no precious rain at all.
Today's high temp of 100 degrees--coupled with the dew point of 74-- means we'll have a temperature that feels like 114 degrees. While there appears to be a break in the forecast, we've got a ways to go before we can breathe a sigh of relief...let alone breathe at all.
Stay cool my friends.
