Beat the Heat (Cold Air Sinks)

The heat wave is unrelenting, unless you count a handful of cooler nights.  The camping kitties are no fools.  There's an air conditioner directly above this part of the camper.  So lounging cats litter the floor.  It looks REALLY funny when they are all on their backs with tummies splayed upwards.  Kind of reminded me of a battlefield aftermath at first glance....ewwww....

Hope you're all either a.) beating the heat in your own ways or, better yet b.) not subjected to this record breaking taste of hell that has descended on parts of middle America.  We're in a serious drought here.  The pond is at least a foot low; the corn crop is probably ruined after a beautiful start; I'm becoming concerned about some of the trees that, despite their deeper roots, are showing stress now, too....

Still praying for rain.....

You kitties are the smartest of all with your choice spot. We hope you get some rain!

I saw on the news yesterday about the heat there. Here we are in winter.
I hope that milder days come soon for you.

Thank goodness for air conditioning!!

Yeah, I'm noticing the trees and shrubs around here are all going dormant and/or dying. It's so darn depressing! I'm watering here to save them, but I can't imagine the damage to forests and such.

C'mon rain!!

We're really glad mama has an air conditioner this year!! We hide in her room when it's too hot in the rest of the house :)

If I had an air conditioner in the ceiling, I would be laying on the floor under it as well!

hope you all stay cool during this hot summer. The mom calls these hot days the dog days of summer.
Oh, thanks for stopping by and leaving the mom birthday wishes for her special day!
